Let’s say you’ve had a great day with adventures in Minecraft and got yourself some great pages. lucky you! Now, where are you keeping them for safekeeping? In a pool of lava? Hey, please don’t try this.
If you don’t want your treasure to be taken away you should try to keep them behind a hidden door. I’m not talking about a dirt wall that has to be punched and rebuilt every time. No, it’s 2019, my friends, not 2009. We can do better than slinging mud whenever we want to reach for our valuables!
But first, if you’re new to the confusing world of theft prevention, it’s worth starting with the baseics. We’ll go through five different ways to build hidden doors in Minecraft, starting from the beginning and working all the way up to the wizard, with increasing difficulty each time. Just make sure you don’t have a crook looking over your shoulder as you read this. This is top secret.
We begin our journey into the world of concealment with a simple question. What do you see in the image below?
OK, Smart Paint. Yes, it is a painting. Everyone is applauding you and your huge brain. But don’t be too arrogant because this painting is also a door. Gotcha! Can’t see it? that’s the whole point. The painting is placed over a hole in the wall which leads to a room. Coward!
You can make your own painting door by following the instructions in the images below.
There’s a big problem with rooms hidden behind paintings – it’s a well-known trick that Minecraft thieves will quickly discover. For better security, you’ll want to increase your security by adding a hidden button that opens a nearby door.
First, make an iron door and put it in a place where it can’t be seen – maybe behind the painting you put up (we’re using iron doors because they can’t be opened by just pushing).
Next, you need a button that will open the iron door. It also needs to go somewhere out of sight. The video below, aptly named Mumbo Jumbo, will show you some of the best hiding places for buttons: behind chests, paintings, banners, armor stands and even clay:
Once you’ve got your iron door and buttons, you just need to connect them. Place a line of redstone dust between them so that the button will power the door, and voila! Well, hopefully. Give it the best test to make sure it works.
The final step is to hide traces of redstone dust behind a wall. Otherwise it will be very clear where the button is and the fact that it powers a secret door will be revealed. What happened? You now have a stronghold that is almost as impenetrable as Fort Knox. Try to find our valuables now, you jerks! Actually, it’s best not to call imaginary thieves a ‘jerk’. Don’t want to encourage them…
You may have noticed a major problem with the hidden piston doors we built above. Yes, the liver makes the whole thing go away. You can try hiding it behind an object like we did with the button. But to actually hide the piston door better we need to use some advanced redstone circuitry.
A good place to start is Rogue Fox’s guide to making an invisible button for a hidden piston door. The required redstone circuit is fairly simple, but it becomes more complicated when droppers, hoppers, and a redstone comparator are added. Just make sure you follow the video closely:
If you thought it was too easy, check out Biggs87x’s redstone torch door, which requires many more moving parts working together. Another variation on this idea is docm77’s hidden switch, which cleverly uses a series of armor to create a chain reaction that opens an iron door.
Finally, Mumbo Jumbo returns with several hidden entrances that you can make out. Some work with piston doors while others are completely new contraptions. Build a few of these successfully and you’ll be a certified redstone expert. Thieves will hate you! Don’t you want thieves to hate you? Come on, dude, that’s not the kind of crowd you should try to impress!
I know what you’re thinking. How could hidden doors be any more complicated? Just ask McMachstein. He’s an Austrian Minecraft player who makes all kinds of ridiculous machines to “blowing people’s minds”. It includes some of the most spectacular hidden doors you’ll probably ever see:
One is basically built into a bookshelf that you open by inserting a missing book. Another makes you feel like a witch while you draw a circle of fire around you to teleport down. You can see McMachstein’s first five hidden doors in the video below.
But it’s not even the best of them. Recently, McMachstein created five more doors, some of which are inspired by the world of Harry Potter. His favorite is the stone wall that opens brick by brick like the entrance to Diagon Alley. You open it with a magic wand! As someone suffering from permanent scalp damage from trying to access Platform 9 and in real life, I’m most impressed.
Your treasure should never be in danger of being stolen again! Unless the burglar is a regular reader of Minecraft.net and now knows all these tricks. In which case, draw.
