i found this trick to make off-centered blocks using stairs

sidodah

Excuse me ***what***


K-G7

There's two stair blocks back to back to mimic the look of actual blocks! Took me a bit to figure it out haha


RandomWarriorCatsFan

Holy shit that's cool


SoraForBestBoy

I can *stair* at this design all day


Suspicious-mole-hair

You gotta step up your pun game


HalfSoul30

Gotta hit that next level


shiftypidgeons

Cool storey bro


CaiGames

You are all seriously up to something, I’m telling you


Mountain-Chance3420

I see these puns are taking flight


MyStomachUrk

i am very inclined to downvote these puns


horseydeucey

Definitely getting a rise out of me!


Ashyboy9090

don't u mean in*climed.*


DarenK77

Get down here this instant


WhitmanFever

That was just the same pun but lazier. I still appreciate the escalation however.


Mixelmon

Listen, Mr. "this pun was too lazy", it's the internet. Be more mature and rise to the occasion.


notorious_GRG

These puns are getting bad on so many different levels


WhitmanFever

You think I’m bready for that kind of rising? I doughn’t think so.


NovaStudios

wrong thread bro, dont think bread pounds belong in this stair-ea (i know that was horrible)


Ashyboy9090

You've just started a whole new branch of baking puns


WhitmanFever

A whole new branch you say? Good, I’ve been meaning to turn over a new leaf.


[deleted]

I wish this comments Positivity Came up the stairs


FlickrFade

Here. Take my upvote and get out.


No-Lie3302

well are you just gonna *stair* at that arrow or give it to me?


FlickrFade

*stairs angrily* Fine.


No-Lie3302

thank you my friend! hope you have a day that goes uphill! get it? cause like, yk, stairs go up- no-? alright.


thatoneshotgunmain

Grian type pun


Ketsuraki

Are you *pun*ishing him with that?


0lazy0

But only every other one right? Some of them are just normal blocks


K-G7

Yep, every other one to get that in-the-middle look.


0lazy0

Neat o

Stelirioum

My brain right now, confused screaming noises..


Chamstick

Alright, so for the first row, every block is underwater. Second row, first block is underwater, and then there’s a staircase so that it pops up, and then another staircase. Third row, first two blocks are underwater, and then a regular block is popping above the water. This pattern continues.


AnOnlineHandle

You're only see the tops of the stairs, which are half a block wide. With 2 of them together, it looks like a full block, though starting at halfway.


Stelirioum

Yea, it took me an hour!


player89283517

I thought it was impossible to have two stair blocks back to back


K-G7

Nope, it's possible! Give this a try yourself in creative. Slabs for the lower sections > Stairs back to back > more slabs and then every other one you use slabs and regular blocks to get that in the middle look.


Limon_Lx

How were you making roofs for your houses?


SnOopY7654

woahhh that is so clever!


SubnauticaCyclops

Waterlogged stairs and slabs


GonnaStealYourPosts

Prob stairs


rFireforce

You put the stairs back to back and water logged them while the rest of the blocks are actually slabs


HotTamalesImSweatin

Thanks. I didn’t quite get it until I read your explanation


lunapup1233007

The rest of them could also be full blocks


Dennis_DZ

Not really because then they would be sticking out of the water or a level below, making it obvious that stairs were used.


lunapup1233007

There is a floor of waterlogged slabs in the image. You would replace the slab with a full block. The floor has to be on a half block or this won’t work.


Dennis_DZ

I’m not sure what you’re saying. If you replaced the slabs with full blocks they would stick out of the water


lunapup1233007

I’m referring to the blocks in the image that stick out of the water and are actually in the position of a block, not to the waterlogged floor.


Dennis_DZ

Ohhhh, I see what you’re saying. When rFireforce said “the rest of the blocks” I assumed he was talking about the water logged slabs that made up the floor.


-funny-username-

Bro what


Captcha27

Why do they need to be water logged?


thenerdyglassesgirl

To help the illusion, but I guess in practice they don't need to be. It just makes them look more authentic.


Captcha27

Thanks!


ZenXgaming100

to add depth to the image, you don't have to do it


Trollerman909

I’ve looked at it for a while now and this is genius, but it only works in half steps


KawaiiDere

And water, the water is more of a concern to me than the half steps


CactusHopper

It would work fine without water. It’s just there to emphasize the edges of the squares.


Hacker1MC

I knew it would work fine without water, but now I understand why they used it, thanks


Bonconickel

It has nothing to do with water


TheNarrator315

This could be a cool slanted bridge desgin.


mikee7788

I dont know whether to he happy or dissapointes


sneez_king

I don’t understand what’s happening here


QuarterlyTurtle

I will explain it block by block. BOTTOM ROW) slab slab slab slab slab slab slab. 2ND ROW) slab stairs stairs slab slab slab slab 3RD ROW) slab slab block slab slab slab slab. Then it repeats. The stairs are put back to back like \_| |\_ so that they form what looks like a whole block. Edit: In case you don't get it here is a video explanation. [https://imgur.com/a2wOt6f](https://imgur.com/a2wOt6f)


thebatsammi

You’re a saint for posting this explanation when people ask. Keep up the good work.


sethel99

I still don't understand lol. How does putting stairs back to back like this _ | | _ make a square shape? Doesn't it just make a _ | | _ shape? I'm having a hard time visualizing it for some reason. Edit: I just figured it out. The _ | | _ is the SIDE view, from the TOP it forms a square. The perspective was throwing me off because I thought they meant _ | | _ from the top view since that's what the image shows.


QuarterlyTurtle

Ok, Imgur finally uploaded the video without an error. Here it is. [https://imgur.com/a2wOt6f](https://imgur.com/a2wOt6f)


QuarterlyTurtle

I shall take pictures of it in-game and send you a link. Edit: Imgur video upload is fucked


Objective-Path9488

Its actually very easy....stairs


basedgodsenpai

“How did someone make this? This is cool” “Stairs” 10/10 pack it up boys, the riddle has been solved.


sneez_king

This doesn’t help explain the trick


Objective-Path9488

Put a floor or slabs and put stairs/blocks in the right place is the best i know how to explain


burningmiles

Using two stair blocks positioned back-to-back surrounded by slabs of the same wood variety


RegardedRain280

This is beautiful, I’ve looked at this for five hours now


Steak-Pizza

zomb3kill3rb33

i really wish they would introduce vertical slabs


watermelon_thiefer

How

Big_Jiggle

alternating between a slab and two stairs


Lilemosavage

The "blocks" that you can see above the water are actually the top half of 2 stairs butted up against each other.


mc_enthusiast

Well only half of them (rounded up, in this case).


antiquewatermelon

THANK YOU lmao all the other explanations didn’t make sense bc I couldn’t figure out the orientation of the stairs


nBoots

I still don’t get it someone do a drawing


MCarooney

Skipp the tutorial new vid presents this idea, it is very creative


AshamedArm4

You caught me stairing lolz


space0watch

So you watched cubfans latest series of Hermitcraft


HutPocalypse

My brain hurts


red9For_LEON

I do not understand why everybody is so impressed. You've been able to do this pretty much forever lol


Floof_2

That’s crazy bc a popular YouTube just released a video showcasing the exact same trick yesterday!


AlsionGrace

Yeah. Lots of people aren’t interested in 15-minute Youtube tutorials with FUN, LOUD KOOKY Gameshow host announcer guys. I prefer this. I wish more people would share “condensed” information like this.


Floof_2

Well yeah but op took credit for the trick and I, personally, have a problem with that


VanityVortex

I mean this has existed for years and I doubt that youtuber credited the original creator of it


Ghost0998

Yeah I agree with you. I always see some actually really cool trick on YouTube or another platform and then the next day there are 6 posts about it.


CobaltSanderson

This doesn’t really contain information


Shoto-todoroki649

*what*


tessviolette

This was in a skip the tutorial vid XD


Hercules69Soul

samirsamj

Its stairs breh


Hercules69Soul

But how? My mind can’t even process this

letouriste1

Everything is water logged slabs beside two water logged stairs, back-back, of each color. Would be less impressive without the water but as it is, my brain struggled for a few secs


RENBOOO

My brain shut down trying to understand this

NanashiKaizenSenpai

Cool, how did you come up with this?


Gusisking

Y’all, there’s some guy u/Elneeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee sitting in this post like a troll under a bridge. I hope I needn’t remind you the rules about trolls


LazerNarwhal_yt

what tbe fuck


uberschnitzel13

I’ve used this trick many a time and it always blows minds on the server heheh


Yrollshi

What have you done


The3DGuy123

My brain can't comprehend this Good job!


Thunderstarer

Oh, shit. Water mechanics have really come a long way in the years since I last played this game, huh?


whymemeexist

I hate it it’s so weird and messing with my ocd what monsterosity did you make


Katisffs

”Do you want to see the most illegal thing I own?”


__Ursus__X

I just tried this! Its so coo- … wait, why is rhe FBI outside my house?


Nexus_Riot

This is both triggering and satisfying


qsteele93

The spruce wood is a slab, the birch are two stairs back to back, the jungle is a slab, and so on...


Glowerworm

That looks *wrong* You've committed a Minecraft sin


goldkey978

wait, that's illegal


snr_fluffy

If only that could be done vertically


CulturedRetard

this hurts me on an emotional level


Lachy_3

can you post a video of you making these off grid block looking things?


Karmanchik22

"Found", you just watched SkipTheTutorial, literally 4 days after the video came out.


fakeburritos123

Illegal


super0815

Be**gone** foul **demon**


_dunked_0n

Skip The Tutorial be like


Tycoon_2000

If only stairs could be placed on walls. I'd make this an abstract art piece in my house.


Toetheseal08

He’s doing something illegal


sTaTiic-Messy

Can you get closer and show the hit box for one of the stair blocks just so some people will figure it out easier... super clever though, i will be using this if that’s okay with you


Captain_JEK

Dude, this trick is years old


TheHappyTuna

This is wrinkling my brain


loloolk

Just use sideways slabs!


leroyvdijk1

Sir, this is illegal


FurretGaming

Why... just.. why


fuckgottaaddnumbers9

it's shockingly difficult to figure out


Tortue2006

This is the trick for off-centering blocks in the x- and z-axis, but you can use slabs to off-center them in the y-axis. To off-center them in the y-axis you: 1. Put a slab on the upper-part of a block (as if you make a ceiling). 2. Put another slab of the same block on top of the first slab. And it’s done!


RocketPG_

Woah, this kinda messes with my head. Cool nonetheless.


LilHam_

this feels illegal


soop4eck

pog


superchicken300

YouTube video where they explain this trick, and who-possibly-found it (not OC) [video](https://youtu.be/AI8Rl6WK2H8)


IHadToMakeANewAcco

not sure if he found it my guess is that it was like a thing like years ago but maybe just an obscure fact


00005843

No you didn’t you got it from skip the tutorial


AnUnnamedRedditor_01

let me guess, skip the tutorials newest vid?


Luc4AR9009_

i saw this on skip the tutorial yesterday


SaltyBoi12345

You got this from Skip the Tutorial


Microwavable_Potato

Burn the witch!!


JoZerp

My eyes! What have you done? No, that's not how you're supposed to play the game.


personality9

let me guess, [Skip The Tutorial?](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AI8Rl6WK2H8)


andester101

Nice! (I think you saw it on skip the tutorial)


parkingspaces

i did that like a month ago


Whismar

could be a coincidence but this was posted in [this video](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AI8Rl6WK2H8) 3 days ago


BeastOnWarframe

You found it or just watched skip the tutorials vid, cos dis been around for longer than 3h


Zoclhas

I remember seeing this in a "Skip the Tutorial" video


ColeBlitz

Stole the idea from skip the tutorial


SprowtBoi

I’m pretty sure he got it from a youtuber named “skip the tutorial”


Bevenw

Here is the original video where OP might have got the idea [link](https://youtu.be/AI8Rl6WK2H8)


QuarterlyTurtle

Here is how it is made in case anyone is confused about how. [https://imgur.com/a2wOt6f](https://imgur.com/a2wOt6f)

This exact idea was on this sub months ago


Sir-Lucid

This has been done before...


ThatsUhHumanPerson

Good Ol' Skip


ShadowPuff7306

skip the tutorial?


NiteMarauder

You saw this from skip the tutorial didn’t you?


JustinFunNL

This has been in a skipthetutorial video so i dont totally believe you found this but im giving you the benefit of the doubt


AlsionGrace

What’s not to believe? They said they “found” this way to do it. I don’t care where they found it, I’m just glad they shared. I don’t watch Minecraft YouTube stuff. I come to you people.


JustinFunNL

Fair enough


jellyfps

hUh?????? lol i cannot comprehend this


QuarterlyTurtle

Here is how it is made: [https://imgur.com/a2wOt6f](https://imgur.com/a2wOt6f) hope this helps.


BrawlStarsFan0761

I saw a similar thing on Skip the Tutorial in a vid he posted yesterday, very cool lol.


LjSinky

Wow, you my friend are the new Elon of Minecraft, absolutely fantastic!


Spirit-Ashamed

No offense but y’all haven’t known this? I swear I’ve been using this building technqiue for years.


Circle-Square-X-X

Ohhhh that's clever!! I wouldn't have thought of that! Then again my creativity in Minecraft goes as far as making my base a pyramid.

Hold up what?


Nanazu_

Shadow0414BR

Wait... what tric- OHHHH!


RevolutionaryName850

Yehe bua


the-tortalion

This makes me uncomfortable and I can’t tell why.


BYT3-M3

The rest of the floor would have to be slabs though otherwise it would just loom odd


burningmiles

Using two stair blocks positioned back-to-back surrounded by slabs of the same wood variety


FLOOR_GANG420

i can choose to like this or hate it. i did make one of these similar to a circle tho


definetlyHOOMEN

If you put an upside down stair and a slab under it it looks like it is The same block aswell


Gr33n-San

Wait. That's illegal.
