When most people start to think about what to build, they often come up with a huge, dramatic idea. It might be a castle or huge fortress, and then they quickly get overwhelmed. They think they need to see the design in their head start-to-finish or know exactly what they need to do. I used to do that all the time!
The problem is, people think “bigger is better”, but in Minecraft that idea can kill all the fun. Don’t get me wrong: it can be fun to make a large structure. But you don’t want to come up with an idea so huge that you aren’t able to finish it, or to even get started!
