Minecraft is an addictive game of a never-ending space where you can build anything you want. The education edition makes this game even better and provides an educational environment for players. In this version, you can create many cool things using science.
Minecraft crossed over a few times with Star Wars enabling the players to create many Star Wars characters. But, the education edition has made everything more fun for Star Wars fans. Now, you can make a lightsaber in the Minecraft education edition.
Lightsaber or Glow Sticks?
Do you think a lightsaber will cut through the Minecraft blocks? No! The lightsaber in Minecraft does not work like that. Actually, it is not even a lightsaber. These are glow sticks of different colors that appear like a lightsaber. These sticks became famous as a lightsaber because most Youtubers used this name for these glow sticks.
These glow sticks are really cool as they illuminate the surroundings in the dark. So, let’s continue using the name lightsaber and find out how to make a lightsaber in the Minecraft Education Edition.
How to Create a Lightsaber in Minecraft Education Edition?
Let’s get straight to the point. You need some elements in different proportions to create a lightsaber in Minecraft. The elements and their quantities are as follows:
- 20 Carbon
- 3 Nitrogen
- 30 Hydrogen
- 1 Dye
- 4 Oxygen
You can find many colors of dye, but I recommend you use green, blue, purple, or red as these are the Star Wars lightsaber colors. After collecting all the elements, you need to go to the Compound creator.
A Compound creator is just another block like other Minecraft blocks. If you want to know how to use it, just right-click on it. The Compound creator will open up with blank spaces. You can add many elements and create more than 25 compounds in it.
Learn the quantities of elements you need to add in compound creator to get the required compounds. Follow the following table to learn how to make Polyethylene in Minecraft Education Edition. Learn about other required compounds like Luminol and Hydrogen peroxide as well.
|10 Hydrogen||+||10 Carbon||=||Polyethylene|
|2 Hydrogen||+||2 Oxygen||=||Hydrogen Peroxide|
|7 Hydrogen + 8 Carbon||+||3 Nitrogen + 2 Oxygen||=||Luminol|
For one Polyethylene, you need ten carbons and 20 hydrogens as the chemical formula (C2H4)5. Try the combination of that amount of carbon and hydrogen in the compound creator to get one Polyethylene, as shown in the above table. For a glow stick, you are going to need six polyethylene compounds. So, in total, you need 60 carbon and 120 hydrogen atoms.
You only need one hydrogen peroxide to craft the glow stick. To craft hydrogen peroxide in Minecraft, you need two hydrogens and two oxygens, as the chemical formula is H202. This formula is very close to the formula of water H₂O₂. You just need an edition of one more molecule of oxygen. Use them in the compound creator and get one hydrogen peroxide.
Like hydrogen peroxide, you only need one compound of Luminol to craft the glow stick. As the chemical formula of Luminol is C8H7N3O2, so you need eight carbons, seven hydrogens, three nitrogens, and two oxygen elements to make Luminol in the compound generator.
You have created all the compounds you needed to create a lightsaber in Minecraft Education Edition. Go to the crafting grid and place the dye in the center slot of the crafting grid. Now place Hydrogen peroxide in the top slot of the center slot. Similarly, add the Luminol to the bottom slot of the central slot.
Fill up the rest of the slots with Polyethylene. The crafting grid will craft a lightsaber for you. Remember, the color of the lightsaber will be the same color of dye you used. If you use red dye, you will get a red lightsaber and vice versa.
Most people play Minecraft in first-person mode. But, if you shift to third-person mode, you can see the lightsaber grabbed by your avatar. This lightsaber even illuminates and brightens up more when you shake the lightsaber.
Now, you may want to go straight to your PC to create a lightsaber. Right? Before you go, please check out the guide to create a lightsaber in Minecraft Legends Mod.
How to Make a Lightsaber in Minecraft Legends Mod?
In Legends Mod, you can create a lightsaber, which is not a glowing stick. You can create them and ignite them, and even do extra damage with them.
You can create a lightsaber in lightsaber forges. These lightsaber forges are available on planets Tython and Korriban. You can use the lightsabers of Jedis or Sith lords and customize them or modify them in lightsaber forges. After creating the lightsaber, you need to have an Equip key to crber.
To create a lightsaber in Minecraft Legends Mod, you need to collect various compounds. You can either locate these compounds or buy them. The compounds are as follows:
- 2 Field Energizers
- 1 Insert Power Insulators
- 1 Magnetic Stabilizing Ring
- 1 Kyber Crystal Shard
- 1 Diatium Power Cells
- 1 Energy Modulation Circuit
- Power Vortex Ring
You can go to Planet Korriban to purchase these compounds. You will find Darth Burok who is selling these compounds. You can buy from him or buy these compounds from Master Harkis.
Place all these compounds into the Lightsaber Forge and craft a lightsaber for yourself. You can craft a lightsaber from the parts of the default lightsabers in the game. The default lightsabers are as follows.
- Chosen 1 V1 (Anakin’s Episode 1 lightsaber)
- Chosen 1 V2 (Anakin’s Episode 2 lightsaber)
- Vader’s Lightsaber
- Guardian V1 (Kenobi’s Episode 1 lightsaber)
- Guardian V2 (Kenobi’s Episode 2 lightsaber)
- Guardian V3 (Kenobi’s Episode 3 lightsaber)
- Consular (Qui Gonn’s lightsaber)
- Champion (Windu’s purple lightsaber)
- Templars (Jedi Temple lightsaber pikes)
- Malgus Lightsaber
- Spectre (Ezra’s lightsaber)
- Cataclysm (Luke’s lightsaber)
- Tano lightsaber
- Mauler’s lightsaber (Darth Maul’s lightsaber)
- Opress (Savage Opress Double-bladed lightsaber)
You can use the parts of any of the above lightsabers to modify or customize your own lightsaber.
