Copper, which was introduced in Minecraft 1.17, is one of the most recent metals in Minecraft. It can currently only be used for crafting three items in Minecraft 1.17, including the spyglass and lightning rod. Copper has an oxidization mechanism. Copper in Minecraft can oxidize and change color just like real life.
Copper can be used to create a variety of structural designs. Copper’s natural oxidization gives it a rustic, natural look that makes it fascinating and unique for building. Below are some of our favorite copper build ideas for Minecraft.
5) An old, rusty car
Steampunk can now be attempted with Minecraft’s introduction of copper. Copper blocks can be used to build a rusty car. Exposed copper blocks can be used to emphasize the car’s gradual rusting. Rusted blocks add a sense of reality to Minecraft.
4) Copper statue
A copper statue can be used to allow players to experience the oxidizing process of the metal. Copper blocks can be made to look majestic and intimidating. They also have the ability to make shiny metallic blocks which perfectly match the idea of building a statue.
Some statue ideas include Poseidon, Poveton, a Witch, Gargoyles and many others.
3) Vault door
One of the best ways to use copper in Minecraft builds is through a vault door. You can use a vault to store valuable loot, or as a safe place. This design can be made with copper blocks and lightning rods to make the handle look authentic.
An anchor is a very popular Minecraft build. This item is made of copper. The anchor’s oxidization, and subsequent rusting, would make it look authentic and real. In an anchor design, it is recommended that oxidized copper block be replaced by normal copper blocks.
1) Tower Bell
One of the most unique builds in Minecraft is a tower bell. The bell can be built with a wooden base, which can be shaped as an arch. You can make the bell from copper blocks, and use lightning rods to make its “clapper”. Copper stairs can also be made to show the circular shape at the base of the bell.
Copper was the first ore to be introduced to the game for many years. The oxidizing process of copper is fascinating to observe. Building copper structures in Minecraft is a great use of this resource.
