2. Minecraft (Win 10) General hints and tips

Discord Server:

Before we get started on the hints and tips, we would like to mention that we have a discord server for the achievement world.
If you are confused about something or need help, you can ask there. You can post feedback by reporting any bugs or issues with the world or posting any suggestions you would like to see added. You can also just have a friendly chat with other Minecraft achievement hunters.
We will also post updates on it (like if we update the world for new achievements). Here is the invite link to the server: http://www.Discord.MinecraftAchievements.net. The Site Rules also apply there.

About this World:

● This world is structured to have a section for each update that had a specific set of achievements release in it. The walkthrough follows this structure, so due to this, there may not be a DLC pack for each update on some variants. However, you can filter these updates on the achievement page by using the Grouping feature in the 'Filter' drop-down.
Here is the layout of the achievement land, and where the updates are:

Update Locations (1.14.0)
There are four different color signs you will see in the world:
Oak Signs are for achievement names and descriptions, or info directly related to getting the achievement. E.g. Instructive Signs and Command Blocks.
Jungle Signs are additional information or tips that can help you get the achievement.
Birch Signs are for achievements that are buggy in a positive way. Meaning you can perhaps unlock it earlier than intended.
Acacia Signs are for achievements that are buggy in a negative way. Meaning that it may not unlock when it is supposed to.
You're invincible in this world, so you don't need to wear any armor. However, if you do wear armor, this negates the invincibility, and you can take damage.
There are quite a few achievements that have designated areas to spawn mobs in. When using these areas, you can close the gates to stop the mobs from escaping.
This world has been designed in a way for both online & offline play.
● This world uses Allow & Deny blocks. Meaning some areas won't be able to be built or mined on. This is to prevent griefing of the world.
● If playing on the Server/Realm, you will be in Adventure mode. This is to prevent griefing of the world. You will still be able to unlock the achievements just fine.
● There is an auto-teleporting feature that you can use if you get lost or stuck. However, a player must be at the achievement land for this to work (as the chunk needs to be loaded in). To do this open your inventory and take out the Bottle o' Enchanting (this constantly refills), and throw it at your feet to get experience, when you reach level 30 you will be teleported to spawn.
This world was created without any 3rd Party Tools, Mods, or Hacks.

How to connect to Dedicated Servers, Realms, and how to play the world Locally:

Dedicated Server:

In case you don't know what a Dedicated Server is, it is a personal server that runs 24/7 - you can join it anytime. You can read more about Dedicated Servers from Mojang Help Center.
You can join the dedicated server by entering these details (in the Server tab - then Add Server):
Server Name: Achievements
Server Address: MinecraftAchievements.net
Port: 19132
Note: Server Name can be anything you want, as it's used as a nickname.
You need to be on the most major recent version of Minecraft - minor versions can connect. Beta versions cannot connect - you will need to opt-out of the Beta to be able to play on the Dedicated Server.
Consoles do not support adding dedicated servers (it only shows the featured 5). However, there are ways to connect to dedicated servers with consoles, which I will mention a bit further down.
If you don't know how to connect to a dedicated server, have a look here for the steps (non-console method):

If you wish to play on the dedicated server from a Console, here are two options available to use:

If you do not like those options, the only other way to play with this world are on the Realm or Hosting it locally yourself.

Realm:

In case you don't know what a Realm is, it is a world hosting service that runs 24/7 - you can join it anytime. Only the owner has to pay for it to be hosted. It is free to everyone else wanting to join the world. You read more about Realms from Mojang Help Center.
You can join the realm with the invite code or the link:
Invite code: 4_FRkZ3uo_M
Direct Game Invite: http://www.Realm.MinecraftAchievements.net
If you are getting errors connecting to the realm I.E. "Permission Required" "You're not invited to play on this server". Try restarting your game. If that does not work, try adding Itzz Sh0wt1m3 as a friend on Xbox Live.
You need to be on the most major recent version of Minecraft - minor versions can connect. Beta versions cannot connect - you will need to opt-out of the Beta to be able to play on the realm.
FYI: Realms are 10 players max (11 including the owner). There is no way to increase this, which is why it is best to play in the dedicated server as you will always be able to get in.

Download and Host/Join Locally:

You can download the world by using this link: http://www.Download.MinecraftAchievements.net
Download the world labeled Ultimate Achievement World. The world will have a version number next to the name, so you know when it was last updated and what major game version you need to be running to use it. There are two files that can be downloaded. The .mcworld which is a direct import file, and .zip file which contains the world save files.
All Minecraft device variants except consoles can use the .mcworld file (however, there are limitations).
All Minecraft device variants except Switch and PS4 can use the .zip world save files (there is a way for Xbox One, but it can be very complicated).

Bedrock supports cross-play. That means you can actually host this world on any Bedrock device variant, and join it on another. I.E. Host on Andriod and join on Xbox One.
You can be logged into the same Xbox Live account on both devices (as it ignores who is the host when a client joins), and join via LAN (expect the Switch - as that does not support LAN).

Below I will explain how to use either of those two files to host it on your device if you don't know how.
Including a way
to get this world on any device easily (including consoles), but it still requires another device that can use either .mcworld or the .zip. I will explain how to do that further down (Realm Transfer Trick).

Additional hints and tips for local play:

Keep in mind that if you somehow screw up on something, you can always import the world again to start with a "fresh" world. There is also a copy button if you go into world settings if you wish not to import it again. This can be very helpful if you have the world on a console.
Also, you must NEVER load any of these worlds in creative mode, as that'll disable achievements for that specific world.
Difficulty:
By default, the difficulty for the world is on Easy, but it can also be played on harder difficulties.
Mobs only spawn in on Easy or higher difficulty. So if you play on Peaceful, no mobs (Creepers, Zombies, Ghasts, Skeletons, etc.) will spawn. It will also despawn any mobs in the world, and loading it back up on Easy or difficulty higher will not result in mobs being back in the place they were.
You can also not eat any food on Peaceful difficulty, as you won't be able to starve on Peaceful difficulty.
All other achievements that do not involve Mobs and Food can be done on any difficulty.
You can change the difficulty while already playing on a specific world by pressing ESC, then Settings, and then you can change the Difficulty by the drop-down menu (Peaceful - Easy - Normal - Hard).

Buggy/Host Only/Broken Achievements:

This game has a habit of making buggy or broken achievements in updates. So if you're playing on an earlier version, you may experience issues unlocking achievements. As of 1.14, there are no Host-Only achievements, but there are eight known Buggy- achievements. However, playing as the host may make these achievements less buggy.

The buggy- achievements are:
Passing the Time, The Beaconator, Super Sonic, Castaway, Me Gold!, Where have you been?, Fruit on the Loom, and Sound the Alarm!.

Controls

There are three types of control inputs for this game. Controller, Keyboard & Mouse, and Touch. This walkthrough is written in a way so any control input can be used. Please familiarize yourself with the input that you are using so you know how to do certain actions, as the actions will be referenced in the walkthrough and not the button itself.

Additional Control Information.

Now that you have familiarized yourself with the controls that you are using, I will explain how to do a few things with those controls, so you have a better understanding of what to do.

For Controller & Keyboard & Mouse, the actions can be used for the following:
Attack is a one-press action to kill mobs.
Destroy is a hold-down action to remove blocks.
Place Block is a one-press action. But it can also be held down to keep building.
Use Item is a one-press action for opening chests, pressing buttons, using spawn eggs, riding & feeding mobs, using a bottle/bucket, throwing potions/pearls, trading with villagers, and auto equipping gear. Some actions can be held down to do it multiple times.
Use Item is a hold-down action for eating & drinking (to eat food you need to be hungry), and using bows & arrows.

For Touch Controls, the actions can be used for the following:
Attack is a one-press action to kill mobs.
Destroy is a hold-down action to remove blocks.
Place Block is a one-press action.
Use Item is a one-press action for opening chests, pressing buttons, using spawn eggs, and using a bottle/bucket.
Use Item is a hold-down action for eating & drinking (to eat food you need to be hungry), riding & feeding mobs, using bows & arrows, throwing potions/pearls, trading with villagers, auto equipping gear, and collecting fish in a bucket.
You can also interact with mobs by moving your finger over them and pressing the button that appears above the Hotbar.

Crafting:

When doing crafting, make sure you're in the 'Craftable' panel as this does quick crafting. This panel has an icon that looks like a magnifying glass.

To select items in the Craftable panel:
Controller = Hover over the item
Mouse = Left Click item
Touch = Touch the item

To craft items in the Craftable panel:
Controller = Press cn_A
Mouse = Right Click the item, or Left Click the output on the right.
Touch = Touch the output on the right.

Alternatively, you can manually place the items in the crafting grid and press cn_A/click/touch the output to craft it, provided you know the formula.

Device Variants Extra Information & Specific Issues:

To be able to buy & play the Kindle Fire variant on Andriod mobiles, you need to download the Amazon Appstore App APK and install it manually on your mobile. This is the link to download: https://www.amazon.com/androidapp. You need to view that on mobile to download it, as viewing it on a desktop computer will load a page telling you to go there on your mobile. Alternatively, you can try this direct download link: https://amazonadsi-a.akamaihd.net/public/ix/stable/DLP/1/Amazon_App.apk
In order to install this app on your mobile, you will need to enable 'Unknown Sources' for app installations (Allow installation of apps from unknown sources). This setting is located in your security section. If you wish to enable this, it is advised you untick the option after installing Minecraft.

The Andriod & Kindle Fire variants can't be installed on the same device at the same time, as they both use the same install/save data location. This can cause issues with achievements.
I.E. You may have trouble unlocking Adventuring Time (Discover 17 biomes). This is because it keeps track of biomes you have visited from both the variants due to it being installed in the same location. To fix this, you need to clear all Minecraft data from your device. Read more about it here.

Gear VR. This variant is the most buggy of them all, and it has given gamers many issues. If you have problems with it, give these suggestions a try: (as of now) Working workaround to not being able to sign in issue & Xbox app crashing for anyone else?.
There is also another issue with Gear VR. For some reason the on-screen keyboard may not appear, which effects the Organisational Wizard achievement. We don't know any fix for this at the moment. You could try using a Bluetooth keyboard.

PS4 Area:

Yes, there is a specific area for PS4 players. The PS4 variant has two trophies that have no corresponding achievements (Music to my Ears & Change of Sheets). This is because the PS4 Bedrock Edition shares the achievement list with the PS4 Legacy Edition. You don't have to worry about this area if you're doing the achievements.

Additional Information & About the Walkthrough:

Before we get started on the achievements, we will mention that this walkthrough is written in a way to help players that know nothing about Minecraft. So some things we mention might seem very basic.
We have also hyperlinked a lot of stuff that goes to the Minecraft Gamepedia if you wish to have more information about certain things.
If there are others playing in the world, you might unlock some achievements when they fulfill the requirements.
● If you're experiencing lag or framerate loss, try lowering your Video settings.
This includes turning off: Fancy Leaves, Fancy Bubbles, Render Clouds, Beautiful Skies, Smooth Lighting, Fancy Graphics, and Texel Anti-Aliasing.
Also reducing these bars to the lowest point (far left): Render Distance, Particle Render Distance, and Anti-Aliasing.
As said before, you can use any of the three input devices as this walkthrough allows for any of them. Though, using the controller is most likely best.
This game has two 'UI Profile' settings (found in the Video section in Settings), these are 'Classic' & 'Pocket'.
As the name says, it changes the User Interface design. The informative icons you see on the screen will be in different places, and the inventory & crafting menus will be different. The default setting is Classic for larger screens like Xbox One & Win 10, and Pocket is for smaller screens like phones. This walkthrough is written to include both, so you can pick whatever you like more.

Now, onto the achievements!
