You will need to play the game for 100 ingame days, which translate to 33 1/3 hours. (1 ingame day lasts 20 minutes). You do need to have a controller charged while going for this, as the game only progresses (and counts progress) when you are not in the start menu. In case you don't want to play the entire 33 hours, start a game on peaceful (so no mobs can kill you) and be sure that you can not accidentally die of any other reason (drowning, falling, lava, etc.) Then plug in your controller, turn your tv off and let the game idle.

You can track your progress both ingame and in the achievements tab.

-Mouse and keyboard works as well.
- joining someone else's game doesnt always seem to count.

Update based on comments:
- Turning off controller works
- Sleeping at night works as well and it tracks.

BulletLukey has made an awesome world for this. You can join our realm (as long as it still runs) or download the world yourself.

*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

In this world, it takes roughly 3,5 hours to get the achievement!

i am 4orty2wo Keyboard/mouse support works too if you don't have a controller cable or rechargable batteries. Just plug in the keyboard and mouse and let it run.

Sashamorning It appears that this may not work in other players' worlds, at least part of the time.

There are definite bugs in this game.

PiCkLE SQU1D I've been able to get progress towards this in my friends world. I also have my controller turned off with a screen saying "Controller lost connection" and it's still working. I have the achievement tracker up and it's going up.

Sashamorning Something else I always do... build a bed. Then when you notice it's night, sleep. Can save up to 10 min/day. And yes, the time tracks.

HolyHalfDead Confirming all I did was load up the game and stand in my house. Controller can disconnect. Sleeping can halve this to 17 hours.

I think the key thing is if it is an online game then when you bring up the menu the game keeps running, unlike single player offline.

FishOnXBL Does the method still work if you create a save in the tutorial world on Xbox One Edition then just sync old worlds when in the new version? For some reason hosting on PC and connecting via LAN on Xbox One keeps disconnecting for me.

Itzz Sh0wt1m3 Yeah that works

FishOnXBL Alright thanks

Hamster Snatch What I did was I put my controller on a charging pad and then plugged in my mouse and keyboard and propped something against the W and the A key so I would spin in a circle and then would move my mouse so I would be looking at the sky. Whenever I noticed it was night I would sleep in a bed.

Runroy This is the last achievement i need!
Posted by Runroy on 07 Sep 18 at 00:31
Kennyannydenny I don't get it. I idled until 73% on the chievo during a few days. Took a few days break and started idling again today. I've done the exact same thing, but haven't gone up even 1% in the last few hours. Somehow it's not counting today.

Kennyannydenny Never mind, fixed it with a hard reset.

Itzz Sh0wt1m3 Cool, good to hear :)

craig killed ya Brilliant mines stuck at 28%, (19 hours played) tried on 2 Xbox’s with me hosting and friend hosting and it hasn’t moved yet they have moved 4% while switching about.

qManballin It appears idling may not be tracking. Left the game on overnight and throughout the day and no budge on the %. May or may not be counting towards the achievement either.

Had another controller hold down the A button to jump continuously and the achievement is tracking. roll

TheOnlyMatto stuck at 40%...

ASneakyMidgit does the method still works ?
Posted by ASneakyMidgit on 15 Dec 19 at 06:19
Jamiereloaded23 Mine has been stuck at 5% for forever even though I've played for around 7 hours. I did get it to increase by 1% by joining a different realm but that has stopped tracking again too :(

Itzz Sh0wt1m3 try not going for this in realms but by starting your own game locally

BARTLEBEE Does this need to be done in a single world or does it count across multiple worlds?
Posted by BARTLEBEE on 14 Jan at 16:02
Itzz Sh0wt1m3 Multiple works
Posted by Itzz Sh0wt1m3 on 14 Jan at 21:21
lightsup55 Okay, so I'm a little confused about how using the realm ( method works in about 3.5 hours.

What needs to be done within the world itself? As in...
- Where in the world do you go?
- Is there a button to push that activates a command block (which executes a line of code)?
- If it is a button, what other buttons must be used?
- Is there a need to sleep in a bed?

Can some provide a video (including the achievement tracker progress bar to show current progress)?

Itzz Sh0wt1m3 The world automatically resets back in time. Just have a look at the sunset. Shortly after it is night, the sun appears back on the horizon, about to set again.
Posted by Itzz Sh0wt1m3 on 27 Mar at 10:14
Itzz Sh0wt1m3 Also no need to press anything or do anything

lightsup55 Ah, ok. So, should this not be considered Time Consuming? It is the only reason I ask.
Minecraft - Achievement Flag submissions
Posted by lightsup55 on 27 Mar at 10:20
Sashamorning It is definitely Time Consuming since the "normal" way of doing it falls into the definition. Creating ways to work around the system are awesome and encouraged, but it doesn't change the flag since most people won't know the tricks.
Posted by Sashamorning on 27 Mar at 18:06
lightsup55 That is what I'd expect for an answer and I'd agree. Thanks.
Posted by lightsup55 on 27 Mar at 18:13
Itzz Sh0wt1m3 Yeah I agree with Sasha on that. The normal way takes 33.33 hours. Im sure most of the people playing this play on a regular world, where days take 20 minutes
