brick Minecraft Block

Minecraft Block

Bricks are used for decorating purposes and as building blocks . They will not naturally spawn in the world so they must be crafted. They are mostly used to up the aesthetic appeal of homes and towers. Since bricks are not flammable, they are often used to make fireplaces or fireguards. Brick blocks are made by putting clay balls in a furnace and then crafting the bricks in a 2x2 square. Bricks are durable blocks and resist explosions well. A Pickaxe must be used to recover the resource of a placed block, and will take under a second to break. Breaking a block with the player's hand is slow and will not yield the resource. Bricks have a blast resistance of 30.Clay can be used to make bricks or clay blocks . Breaking clay drops 4 clay balls, which can then be smelted into clay bricks. The 4 clay bricks can then be crafted into one brick block. And this means that for each clay block found in a map, players can make 1 brick block.
