Are you playing survival mode, but are just getting sick and tired of not having enough diamonds on you? Do you wish you could build an entire fortress out of diamonds, but don’t want to actually wait through the whole process of mining such a resource by hand? If that’s the case we shall go into a system that has been mastered by YouTuber StellarMC where you can create your own automatic diamond farm. Here is how it can be made.
Required Materials to Make a Diamond Farm
In the creation of this complicated device, you are going to need a long list of different devices and other resources in order for you to reach your goal and objective. Take note that much of what you will need is going to be highly advanced materials, meaning that a great deal of it won’t be able to be acquired until you reach somewhere around the late-game of your survival mode if you are playing that way. The needed materials are as follows:
- Stone blocks
- Two chest blocks
- Multiple Diamond ore
- Three hoppers
- Four Redstone torches
- Multiple pistons
- Multiple slime pistons
- Redstone dust
How To Build a Diamond Farm in Minecraft
Firstly, you are going to take four of your stone blocks and place them in a formation where there is a hole in the center.
You will then want to make an extension of one of those blocks so that you can in turn set up a double-sized chest. Destroy the block that it was built off of and then proceed to the next step.
Next, you will want to place three hoppers over the center of your construction and two sets of diamond ore one block away from the side that the chest is on.
From there you will set up two slime pistons that will not only be floating but will be one block away from the diamond ore.
You will then place two pistons on either side of your chest and on the more inward portion of it. After this, you will place two sets of two blocks on either side of your growing contraption which you will then place Redstone dust upon.
Next, you will want to place levers on your blocks that have Redstone dust and afterward place Redstone torches on the inside of the contraption you have created to extend the range of the activation of the Redstone dust.
Finally, you will place two sets of pistons on either side of your contraption slightly above your diamond ore. To activate them you will need to place a Redstone dust trail behind them so that they can activate and in turn create enough lag for the diamond you are farming to duplicate itself.
From there, all you have to do is collect your desired product.
You may have to go through a bit of trial and error to fully integrate the system correctly so that you are successfully farming diamond, but if you follow the instructions to the letter or even watch StellarMC’s video on the matter you could have your own diamond farm in less than ten minutes.
