If you ever have a few minutes spare and want to learn a bit more about the intricacies of Minecraft, the easiest and most fun way to do that is to watch a couple of videos from McSpotlights – a British YouTube channel that produces short, and fascinating, videos about Minecraft.
One of the latest McSpotlights videos I watched is one that answers the question ‘What can you make with Minecraft trapdoors?”, and by that I mean anything but just the usual ‘cover a hole before you fall down it’ one.
In the video, you’ll see how to use a Minecraft trapdoor to make a drawbridge (with a trap, if you want one), an elevator, and stable doors, as well as a few other cool uses you may not have thought of.
Check out the Minecraft trapdoors video below. It’s only 1 minute and 12 seconds long, but you’ll come away from it actually having learned something, and can then build more intricate trapdoors of your own.
How cool is that?
