6 Simple Automatic Farms to Build in Survival Minecraft 1.14.4

October 12, 2019


– Today on OMGcraft, we are
creating six awesome farms. These are easy, beginner-level farms that will automate the
production of all sorts of items for your Minecraft worlds or servers. These are must-have
builds, so let’s jump in. (cheerful electronic music) So here we are inside of Minecraft, and this is all of the different farms that we will be showing off today. I’m gonna consider this
farm, these two farms, as a single farm, so you
know, if you’re counting and you’re like, “Wait, what the heck? “He said this number but
he showed off this number,” that is why. So we are gonna start off with
a super simple melon farm, and this can be any type of melon. This can be pumpkin, this
can be actual watermelon, and by the way, I have
my random tick speed set to really, really high,
so that these will fire a whole bunch of times whenever
I’m showing this to you, so you can actually see
it in action a few times. And this one is very, very,
very, I mean, obviously, these are all very simple,
so all that’s going on here is an observer is looking at this stalk. This stalk only has two places that it can grow on either side. Once it does that, it’ll update, this observer will see that and send a redstone signal
to both of these pistons, firing off in the direction of the hopper, and then that deposits it into a chest over on the other side. So let’s go ahead and start off with everything that we need. First you need an area to
sort of build everything in, and we’re just gonna have
a little bit of dirt. Obviously, this could
be dug into the ground. Now, you’ll wanna put some
chests down on either side, and then grab a hopper and set it into, point it into, both of those chests. Now you need some water in the middle to make sure that your farmland will grow, and now you’ll need to
actually make that farmland. I’m just gonna go ahead
and grab the farmland out of my inventory
instead of grabbing a hoe. And place your seed inside of that. Then, I’m just gonna use some bone meal to make sure that it’s
all the way grown up. If it goes ahead and makes
a melon on either side, that is totally fine. Now we need to get our observer, any type of building block,
a little bit of redstone, and the piston to break it, as well as any type of
block around the edges. I’m using glass here for that block, but it could really be anything. So we’re gonna take the observer and point it into the stalk here. That is gonna go into any type of block, and
then on either side, there’s gonna be a bit of redstone dust. I’m just gonna go ahead
and break that guy, and break him again, just so that we can place down our piston. Oh my gosh, (chuckles)
break him another time! There we go, place down
our piston right there so that it will break that block, and then make sure that wherever the entities end up flowing, they are gonna flow towards the hoppers. So there we go, and this
is a completed build! And it’s nice. So far, I’ve obviously got a ton of melon, but I’m on random tick speed 300, so that is to be expected. Next, this is a super-simple
farm for gathering wool! This is actually a
example that I showed off (water trickling)
in a previous video. For some reason, we’re actually getting, why are we getting no wool at all? (sheep baaing) Oh my gosh, I’m so silly. It’s because (chuckles) okay, whenever you make this yourself, remember that you do need some
grass around the dirt block, which was in my original video, and so this poor sheep has
been sitting here looking for a hungry hungry piece
of grass to munch on, and he hasn’t been able
to munch on anything because all of the grass is gone! So let’s go ahead and make this ourselves. We’re gonna go ahead and
start off with the chest, so just any chest, I like a double chest, ’cause you end up filling it up. You will need a you will need a hopper, some rail, you’ll need a hopper minecart, then you’ll need your grass block, but if you’re building this in survival, you probably already
have a grass block there, some glass to keep everything in a perfect tube, the observer, some redstone, a dispenser, and we’re gonna stop there and go ahead and build all of this. Place your hopper into the chest, put your rail on top of that, with your hopper minecart into that. Then you’re gonna make
sure that your grass is right above the hopper minecart, and obviously, you would
probably build this underground, all of this. so this is just
two underneath the block that the sheep will eventually be on. Make sure that there is
grass around that block, otherwise it’ll never
turn back into grass, which would be a big bummer,
and would be embarrassing, if you notice that on video. So now put your observer
facing into the block that your sheep will
eventually be standing on. Make sure that behind that
observer is any type of block, then place redstone on top of that, and a dispenser on top of your observer. Now you’re gonna make sure
to create a little cage for your sheep, so just make it just exactly like that. Now, you need to make sure to get a sheep and then also, you’re going
to need to have some shears. Now shears have lots
of durability on them. I believe that it is
200-and-somethin’ durability. Let’s look at this, here
we go, 238 durability, which is actually 239 uses, so if you fill up your
dispenser with shears, it’s gonna be thousands
and thousands of uses, so you’re gonna get tons
of uses out of just this. If you want to add even more shears, you can add a hopper onto the side and a chest onto the top of that and fill that up with shears. Then all you have to do, throw
your sheep inside of there. Eventually, he will eat the grass, but to speed up the process, you may wanna give him
an initial shearing. That way, he will immediately
eat the grass below him. Every time he eats the grass, the contraption will notice that the grass has been updated because
he’ll eat the grass, his wool will come back,
it will try to shear him, then the wool will fall
down into the chest below. So here’s the whole process,
there we go, just like that. And then wham bam, he’s
a wool-producin’ machine! Look at that, look at him go! My gosh, twice in a row,
you are a superb actor. Next is a fantastic little cactus farm. You can see all of the cactus
that we’ve gathered already. This one is really, really simple. I know that that is the
title of this video, but let me assure you, very, very simple. So we’re gonna start
off with a corner block and then fill in five blocks, (grass rustling)
one, two, three, four, five. Another corner block, one,
two, three, four, five, another corner block, one,
two, three, four, five, and you get the idea, we’re
just gonna fill that in. Inside of here, you are going
to need a little bit of sand. Obviously, the cactus
that you will be placing on top of that sand, some iron bars. Make sure that you have one water bucket, a hopper, and a chest. Over here in, whoops, sorry, I didn’t mean to throw
my sand on the ground. Over here, this is where you’re going to create your inventory, so you’re gonna put down
a chest with a hopper facing into it just like that. Over here in the middle
of your five by five area, make sure to put some
sand, just four sand down. Place a water bucket in the
opposite corner of your hopper, and that is going to fill in perfectly so that it will always push
things directly to the hopper. Then place your cactus down,
and this is using a technique where cactus will break off
if it grows into an area with an adjacent block. So we’re gonna use these iron bars. If I just place this iron
bar next to this cactus, you’ll see, what is going to happen is, the cactus will try to have the space next to a block that’s already there, and then it will break! So we’re gonna go up one,
oh, thanks, wandering… If you weren’t already
super freaking annoying, you’re gonna get into my, okay, okay, I just, I’ve had enough. Make sure you go one
block above your cactus. We’re gonna destroy that
temporary block down there, and then you’re gonna fill in this area. So we’re gonna make sure, bam! Don’t grow, and we’re just
making a little X here so that is one, two, three
blocks by three blocks, and that’ll stop the cactus
from getting any higher. You may have, this an optional next step, is to create a little bit of a wall, because sometimes when
the entity breaks off, it goes flying in a crazy direction, although you don’t lose too many blocks. If you like the look of it
without this wall, totally fine. I just destroyed my water source block so we’re gonna have to
place that right back. If I didn’t hate the
wandering trader already, oh my gosh, the most annoying mob. So there you go, already
we’ve gathered a whole bunch although my random tick
speed is going crazy. Next is another type of farm,
this is an AFK fish farm. This may be one of the most
useful things early-game, is to be able just to sit here and fish. Pro tip, the water source or the bobber should be able to see the sky, so make sure that you’re not building this inside of a cave or inside of a building that doesn’t have access to the sky, so this block right here
is what I’m talkin’ about. With this setup, you can fish and the moment that a
fish gets onto the bobber, you will reel it in. Make sure that you are
pointing your clicker or pointing your crosshairs
at the note block. So what happens here is, when the iron trapdoor is down, you can throw out your bobber here, so whenever it’s down,
you’ll throw it out. But once you throw it down, it will activate the pressure plate, which will raise it up out of the way, and then you’re looking
straight at a note block! That note block is actually
getting tuned by you, so if you look at your statistics,
you’ll see it going up, that you’re tuning this
note block over and over and over and over and over again, and that takes precedent
over reeling in your bobber, but the moment that a fish
gets attached to the bobber, you’ll real in that fish, which will bring the pressure
plate back to normal, which will bring the
iron trapdoor back down. Then you’ll be able to swing
out your bobber once again, and once again, you’re
lookin’ at that note block. So that is how you’re able to gather fish. Let’s go ahead and build
this, very, very simple. We’re gonna need a chest and a hopper to gather the materials. You’ll need a oak fence
and a little bit of water, and of course that pressure
plate which you saw before. You’re also gonna need
the iron trapdoor in this, as well as a note block and some slabs. So let’s go ahead and
start with our chest. We’re just gonna place that down, move to the back, throw a hopper into it. This is where your water
source is gonna be, so you’re gonna throw your
oak fence right there. I’m just gonna add any type of block on either side of this, just like this, and then one in the front. Make sure the one in the
front is a transparent block so that you can open up that chest, and so we’re just gonna continue
that all the way around. Now you’re gonna go ahead
and waterlog that fence, throw a pressure plate on the top of that, and then an iron trapdoor
over on the other side, and make sure that that
trapdoor is going to open away from you, just like that. Now we’re gonna throw our note
block, and if you don’t wanna (piano music)
listen to that thing all day long, throw any
type of block on top of it, and then it will not make a sound. And you just need to have a
little area for you to stand, so you could create
some stairs if you want, but basically you just need
to stand back one block and now everything is ready for you when it comes to AFK fishing. And the first time that you try this, make sure that your crosshairs are pointed at that note block, like I said before. And you can also extend this system, if you want to incorporate even more of a storage situation. So you can add more storage down here, and then add more
hoppers pointed into that and the line’ll just go down
and deposit all of the stuff into the bottom hopper,
so let’s say we we caught a fishing rod, throw it in
there, the hopper picks it up, moves it all the way
down to the bottom chest, so there you go, so now you
have expandable storage as well. Finally, we only have two
more to take a look at. Both of these farms are using the observer and a piston to break off a vertical crop. So this will work with bamboos just great. It’ll also work fantastically
with sugar cane. We’re using a very similar setup to what we were capturing
wool with before. So let’s go ahead and
quickly make both of these. You’re going to need
a chest with a hopper. That hopper will need a rail and a hopper minecart
sitting on top of that. Both of these, now bamboo can be made on many different types of blocks, but sugar cane can only be made on sand, so make sure you have some sand. Obviously, you’re going
to need whatever crop that you are going to be harvesting. You’ll need an observer and a piston. I also have some transparent
blocks just to make sure that nothing bounces around. For this design, we are gonna need some redstone and a few more blocks. So let’s start off with the bamboo design. Place down your chest,
hopper into the back, rail on the top, I always click into the hopper for some reason. Hopper minecart on top of that. Now place your crop block on top of that and go ahead and throw it down. Now you’re going to place the observer, and remember, bamboo grows
really, really, really tall, so if you want to, you can wait for this to grow really way up in the
air and then place this down, or you could do it way down here as well. So however you want to
place this, you can. Let’s go ahead and stop right there. We’re gonna put our observer into that, and then we’re gonna place a few more observers all the way down, except that we will wanna make sure that, let’s say this is gonna
be where our piston is, because you don’t want to
destroy the bottom block, otherwise you’d have to replant it, so you want the second
block from the bottom and then place all of
your observers going down. That way, when this block is updated, it’ll send a signal all the
way down to this piston, which will fire it off. And then of course, you
would conceal all of that inside of some type of glass or something so your items don’t go flying everywhere. Now with the sugar cane, basically the exact same situation here. We’re gonna do the hopper
minecart with the sand and place that right over that. Now, the sugar cane is
a little bit different because sugar cane requires a water block to be adjacent to the block that it is trying to
grow the sugar cane on. So you’re gonna have to create
a little pocket back here for a water source to be,
otherwise you won’t be able to place your sugar cane. Next, sugar cane can only grow three tall, so once we have this at three height, that is where your observer
is gonna have to be. And now I’m gonna go ahead and grab some redstone and any type of block. This observer is gonna
have to go into a block with a block below it and
redstone in the middle, and that redstone is going
to be what powers the piston to break off the sugar cane, and then it’ll all go
flowing into the chest below once you have your two
vertical shafts of blocks! Finally, we are here
at this chicken cooker. This is a really kind of old-school farm. They’ve been in Minecraft for a very, (chickens clucking)
very, very, very long time. My chickens still have not
grown up, oh, there they go. I think they’re all
about ready to grow up. This is awesome, (laughs) perfect timing! ‘Cause I just completed
this right before I started the video, so all my chickens
are growing up all at once. So how this works is that we
have adult chickens in here. They are poopin’ out their eggs. Those eggs are going into a dispenser. The dispenser is firing
into this half slab which creates babies
every once in a while. Those babies are safe from
lava until they grow up. The moment they grow up, they die. The lava cooks the chicken
and also kills the chicken, which gives you cooked chicken
and feathers as an output. In order to build this, we’re gonna need obviously our chest and our hopper. You can use glass, you
can use a solid block, it doesn’t matter, whatever you want. You’ll also need your lava,
a half slab of any flavor, a dispenser, and it does
need to be a dispenser, and you’ll also need a bit of carpet for the chickens up there, and then you’ll need some redstone. So you’ll need a repeater, a comparator, and some actual redstone
as well as a few blocks, and we’ll get to that in just a moment. So to start off with
this build, place down your collection device, go ahead and put your hopper into that, put the slab on top of that. This is where the baby chickens are going to live, eventually. Make sure they don’t escape by putting blocks all the way around that. You can go ahead and drop
your lava into the top. Oops, I kinda got ahead of myself. I accidentally added this right here, (glass crashing)
which should actually be, I’m gonna go ahead and destroy my lava, I’m sorry, I got ahead of myself. You’re gonna want to put down a dispenser dispensing directly into the half slab here. There we go, sorry, that required quite a lot of fake dispensers. The dispenser is going
straight into that half slab, and then on top of that
is going to be a hopper. Now you can go ahead and
add your lava bucket. And here, this is where
your adult chickens are going to live, so I’m gonna go ahead and
throw a carpet right there. You are gonna need to cover that carpet with a bit of string, otherwise the carpet is
going to catch on fire, just like it did and then I accidentally destroyed my hopper, so
we’re gonna make sure to put string on top of
that but before we do, let’s go ahead and throw down (glass tinkling)
our glass blocks. This glass will also stop the
carpet from catching on fire. There we go, go ahead and destroy that, put down our carpet on top of the hopper and then our string, and there we go. So that is not going to catch on fire. Now, we are gonna make
sure this is two tall so that our chickens cannot escape, and then you would fill
this full of chickens. And we’ll do that in just a moment. I’m gonna go ahead and put down my redstone and a few blocks. Out of the dispenser here, you’re just gonna build
out, go ahead and and build out three blocks on either side, with one block right
next to your dispenser. You’re gonna put a comparator coming out of the back of that dispenser, with a repeater going into a block. On this side, it’s going to be redstone, redstone, repeater, and that repeater goes into the block next to the dispenser. On the other side, it’s
going to be redstone, redstone, redstone. What this will do is, if there is anything inside of the dispenser, the
comparator will light up. It’ll send a redstone signal here, but this will go over and
turn the repeater off, so it’ll lock it, which won’t
send the redstone signal, so this will continue to click,
click, click, click, click. Every time that it clicks, it
sends another redstone signal over here to this block,
which fires off the dispenser. So it’ll go click, click,
click, click, click, and the whole time it’s
clicking it will fire off the dispenser at the same time. So now you can go ahead and, whoops, I grabbed, that is a
sheep, I need a chicken. Go ahead and add your chickens to the top. MaxEntityCramming will probably limit the amount of chickens that
you’re allowed to add in there. Obviously, you’re probably gonna do this not in creative mode,
you’re gonna use eggs and just spam the eggs as much as you can. Once you are satisfied
with the chicken quantity, you can also just throw in any extra eggs, and that will get started
with the babies below. And you can throw in as many as you want because this has a really nice timing, that it will always constantly fire as long as that is being fed with items. And we already have babies over here, where we’ve had babies for a little while, we already have a little
bit of cooked chicken. If you are friends with the server manager or you have OP on the server, you can raise maxEntityCramming
and get like 50, 60 chickens in there and
it’ll go very, very fast. Right now on this world,
I have it set to 24, and that’s why we haven’t gotten a ton of chicken out of that. And those are all of our fantastic farms! And there you have it, our farms. I hope that you enjoyed all of these. I personally find having
a farm in my world way better than trying to go out and manually gather the materials. If you make these farms early enough, then you can just have the resources whenever you need them next, and some of these are also
really good for villager trades. So thanks so much for watching this video. If you enjoyed it, please
give this a big ol’ thumbs-up! Also, make sure you
