Creeper Powered Cobblestone Farm

Here is a simple, and relatively inexpensive automatic cobblestone farm. The other cobblestone farms I have seen either required you to mine the blocks, or used Withers to harvest them. The Wither farms are more efficient, but take much more time and resources to build. On PS3, I just use water to catch the drops and cobblestone, but you could use hoppers on PC, or on PS3 if we ever get them.

Minecraft Skyblock for PS3

This is my version of Skyblock for Minecraft on PS3. I tried other Skyblock maps for PS3, and they all had issues (not that mine isn't without issue). Most of them used a super flat world as the base, and left all the grass and dirt down on the ground. That was too much of a temptation for me, and ruined the limited resource aspect of Skyblock. I spent a few hours setting TNT and destroying all the dirt on the bottom of the world. Ok, let's be honest here, I put a rubber band on my PS3 controller, and let it dig tunnels and place TNT for a few hours. The completely empty world is available for download below, along with a Skyblock world that has been constructed.

You can not set your spawn point on the PS3, so I would make a bed as soon as possible. When you initially load the world, you may spawn on the base bedrock. If that happens, you will need to start in creative, and fly up to the Skyblock, then re-save the game.
