A cobblestone generator is a mechanism that constantly makes cobblestone. Tutorials will be given in this article for some of the many ways cobblestone generators can be created.
This design is used in Skyblock maps mainly, but one can use it in multiple places in one's world. First dig a 1x4 hole in the ground. Next dig the 2 blocks in the center. Now craft a sign and place it next to the block where one will place the lava on. Make sure the sign is placed in a way that the lava will flow on top of it and the water will stop flowing in front of it. Next place the water and the lava in one's desired spots and one is done.
Pros: Resourceful, easy to make, and requires less space.
Cons: One will NOT always get the block after one mines it because it can fall in the lava before one grabs it
This design is useful if one doesn't want to wait for one block of cobblestone to generate. This design generates three cobblestone blocks at a time instead of just one. First dig a 3x3 hole. Now place three blocks of one's choice diagonal from one corner to another, so it looks like a slash across the square. Now place one's water on top of a corner, so the slash acts as a barrier to the water. Do the same with the lava on the opposite corner, but a good idea is to add a buffer to prevent the lava from burning one or one's builds. Add a buffer around the water if one wants to as well. Now break the 3 blocks one placed before after the water and lava finish flowing fully and there one goes.
Pros: Resourceful, easy to make, requires less space, and generates 3 blocks of cobblestone instead of just one.
Cons: One will NOT always get the block after one mines it because it can fall in the lava before one grabs it.
