In Minecraft, you use a bucket to transport liquids, such as water, lava, and milk.
Part 1 of 3: Collecting iron bars
Step 1. Find iron ore
Mine with a stone, iron or diamond pickaxe.
Step 2. Melt the iron ore in the furnace
You need 3 rods.
Part 2 of 3: Making the bucket
Step 1. Go to your workbench or work schedule
Step 2. Place the three iron bars in the compartments of the work grid
They should be placed in a "V" shape, so:
- 2 iron bars in the middle side pockets and one in the center bottom pocket; or
- 2 iron bars in the top side pockets and one in the center pocket.
Step 3. Manufacture
Shift-click or drag the bucket to your inventory.
Part 3 of 3: Using a bucket
Step 1. Water:
Find water in ponds, rivers, lakes, oceans, etc. Right click with the bucket in your hand to fill. Water is the only liquid you can put down without causing damage.
Step 2. Lava:
Lava can be found in lava pools. Very occasionally you can find a lava pool on the surface. Right click with the bucket in your hand to fill it. Be careful not to fall while getting a bucket of lava. Also, be careful not to place the bucket of lava in such a way that you accidentally burn down your house (and kill your character).
Step 3. Milk:
Right click on a cow. It is the only liquid that you can not drop in the version of the game without mods. You can use it to make a cake, or drink it to reverse any negative or positive effects of drinks (depending on the drink).
- Empty buckets can be stacked in your inventory; buckets filled with a liquid do not.
- Use a bucket to create a bubble underwater. Right-click while holding the empty bucket and your character will get a temporary bubble over his head. This lasts until the air meter is replenished. This can be done multiple times if there is a block nearby; empty the bucket on the block with the right mouse button, and breathe again. Keep doing this as long as you have to stay underwater.
