Quick question about Minecraft. I've seen the 1st survival video on youtube, how do you know how to make stuff?
There's no tutorial or tool-tips for anything, but Notch is planning them once the game is finished; there's no point in making a tutorial now in case he changes things during development. The crafting page on the wiki is the only way to find out this stuff at the moment. It's not such a big deal, most of the recipes are easy to remember, and there's only 10-15 objects that you'll be making on a regular basis, most of the objects are speciality items that you'll make infrequently. Most of your time is spent building, mining and exploring, and you don't need a guide for that stuff.
