To make a lodestone compass in Minecraft, you will need the following materials:
- One compass
- One lodestone
Follow these steps to create a lodestone compass:
- Craft a compass: To craft a compass, you will need one Redstone dust and four iron ingots. Open a crafting table and place the Redstone dust in the middle slot. Then, put an iron ingot directly next to, above, and below the Redstone dust.
- Craft a lodestone: To craft a lodestone, you will need one netherite ingot and eight chiseled stone bricks. Place the netherite ingot in the center slot of the crafting table, and surround it with chiseled stone bricks.
- Place the lodestone: Put the lodestone at the location you want the compass to point to, such as your house or a specific point of interest.
- Use the compass on the lodestone: Hold the compass, face the lodestone, and use it on the lodestone. If done correctly, the compass will appear enchanted and will be renamed to “Lodestone Compass”. It will then point in the direction of the corresponding lodestone.
Now, whenever you need to find your way back to the specific location, simply follow the direction the lodestone compass arrow is pointing, and it will lead you there. Read how to use a compass in Minecraft for more information.
