July 4th Minecraft

It’s #MinecraftMonday and 4th of July just passed. I hope you all had a fantastic weekend celebrating. Let us know down in the comments what your family did to celebrate. Personally we did Minecraft, pool time, watched movies and enjoyed our hamburgers.

Anyway, I couldn’t find a mod that would explain the American Revolution but I was able to find firework mods. While we didn’t go watch fireworks in person, we had a blast setting them off in Minecraft.

You can also create your own fireworks to go off in any of your mods by using the directions below.

  1. You will need: 1 dispenser, 4 detector rails, 8 powered rails, 4 normal rails (for corners), redstone, 1 minecart, 7 redstone torches, 1 lever, Fireworks to fill up dispenser
  2. Put down the dispenser and fill with fireworks. Put redstone on all four sides of the dispenser. Attach detector rails to the redstone that’s attached to the dispenser. Place powered rails on both sides of all the detector rails. Connect the sides with normal rails. You should now have a square with a dispenser in the middle, redstone connecting the dispenser to the detector rails, and powered rails on each side of the detector rails.
  3. Place redstone torches next to all but one of the powered rails. On the powered rail without a redstone torch, place down redstone connecting to it, leading away from the square. Place a lever that connects this redstone to the unpowered rail. Place a minecart on the unpowered rail and pull the lever.

Here is a YouTube video to help explain the process.
