Welcome to the roadmap for Minecraft: Xbox 360 Version. Many of you will already have played Minecraft, but for those new to the game, some achievements may seem a bit daunting.

The quickest way to get all of the achievements done is to find somebody who has a world set up, join their game with their help you can have everything done in hardly any time at all. For those who don't have this option, hopefully this map will come in helpful.

Step 1

Startup a new game on tutorial mode. This is a world set up with plenty of chests around with tools and items you will need to get most of the achievements done.
Follow the tutorial without skipping any parts, and you will unlock the following achievements:

Getting Wood
Taking Inventory
Benchmarking
Time To Mine
Time To Farm
MOAR Tools
HOT Topic

After the fishing rod tutorial is done, and you have caught a fish, cook it in your oven for Delicious Fish.
Next use your workbench to make a sword for Time to Strike so when night falls you can easily kill a monster for Monster Hunter. You can also make a better pickaxe for Getting An Upgrade. There will be a most likely be a cow around, so kill that and take its leather for Cow Tipper, if there is not or it doesn't drop leather we will be going to a farm soon so you can get that there.
Now look around the immediate area and you will find many items including Redstone, which you will need soon. You should see at least one chicken running around, follow it and it will eventually drop an egg, which you will need.

Step 2

When daylight comes, start to head for the castle. On the way you will find another chest, make sure you take the bow from that and anything else you may want. Once in the castle, head to the left and find a box that contains diamond tools, amongst other things, and take them. To the right there is a room that has sugar in one of the chest, so take that.

Next, go upstairs in this castle, and directly in front of you there is a gap in the wall. Use your pickaxe to go through to a room with a portal. Use your diamond pickaxe to break up the black rocks. These are obsidian which you will need to make your own portal. You need at least 10 blocks of this.

Step 3

Exit the castle the way you came and go left. You will come out at a farm. On the right you will see a chest. In that chest amongst other things are bones. Once you have these, save your game. Now go to the far left pen in this area and you will see two wolves. Tame these with . Now exit without saving and reload your game and do it again. Repeat, and after taming your fifth wolf you will get Leader Of The Pack.
On the other side you will see crops being grown. Amongst these you will find wheat. You can return to your crafting table and make bread with three wheat for Bake Bread. You can also make a dispenser now for Dispense With This.

Step 4

Now we need to go mining. Just dig, and eventually you will find what you need. Every map is going to differ slightly, but you are looking for iron ore and flint (as much as possible). Once you have this, return to your stove and heat the iron ore to make an iron ingot. This will get you Aquire Hardware. Once you have three iron ingots you create a bucket. You will need three buckets. Once you have these, find yourself some cows and milk them with . You should now have all the ingredients for a cake, so combine your egg, milk, sugar and wheat for The Lie!

Step 5

Use the achievement guide to help you reassemble your obsidian into the portal shape. Next combine your flint with an ingot and ignite the portal. The centre should turn purple and Into The Nether will unlock.

Step 6

Building a 500 metre rail will take a long time to mine for all the parts needed for this, but if you don't have a friend to let you ride theirs, you need to mine a lot, which will take you some time. See the achievement guide for more info. The other tricky achievement is When Pigs Fly. Again if you have a friend who has a trap set up this is easy, if not you will need to explore caves until you find a chest next to a monster spawner, then find a pig up high and hope for the best

Conclusion

This roadmap explains the quickest way to get everything done. I would thoroughly suggest playing the game naturally as it really deserves all the hype it gets. Most of the achievements are straight forward, and the only tricky one is finding the damn saddle so you can pig ride. Go create something wonderful!

Into The Nether 40
Construct A Nether Portal

If you start a game on the tutorial level, skip through the prompts and make your way to the castle. In the left room on the ground floor you will find a diamond pickaxe. Now head up the stairs and go through the secret door at the top (you will see a doorway, mine your way through). In here will be a ready made portal. Use your diamond pickaxe to mine all of the black mineral. This is obsidian, and you will need at least ten of these.

Next make your self a portal, this will need to be a rectangle four across and five high. You don't need to fill in the corners, so it is build-able with ten. Now you need to make Flint and Steel to light it. You can mine for flint, and create an iron ingot from iron ore. Create these two to make this item, then use it on the bottom of your portal. Once this is lit, the portal centre will turn purple and the achievement will unlock.

Dispense With This 20
Construct A Dispenser

In the tutorial level, you find a bow in the chest leading to the castle. You will find the Redstone in a chest near to where you originally spawn. Mine some 7 cobblestone from the back wall of this area. Use your workbench to combine the three ingredients and you will have yourself one dispenser.

MOAR Tools 15
Construct one type of each tool (one pickaxe, one spade, one axe and one hoe)


If you follow the tutorials in the tutorial level you will have to make all of these. You will need to craft them once you have enough wooden planks and sticks, and the tutorial will show you how this is done!

Leader Of The Pack 30
Befriend 5 Wolves

In the tutorial level, head straight for the castle and head right. You will be in a farm area. On the right you will see a chest, open this up and in here, one of the items is 64 bones. The top pen in this area has 2 wolves in it. Before you do anything now, save your game. Now use the bones to tame the wolves by pressing . Once they are both tamed, quit out without saving. Now reload your game and tame the wolves again. Quit without saving and reload again, and tame one of the wolves for this achievement to unlock

When Pigs Fly 30
Use a saddle to ride a pig, then have the pig get hurt from fall damage while riding it.

This achievement can give you lots of problems. It is hard enough finding a saddle, let alone getting a pig to hurt itself. Saddles can only be found in caves, they aren't too rare but it can be tricky finding them. Look for mossy cobblestone, and a chest should be near, and hopefully it will contain a saddle. Now you have to find a pig. Preferably one that is up high on a mountain somewhere. Place the saddle on the pig by pressing and ride it round, hoping it falls at least 5 blocks down so it hurts itself enough for the achievement.
It is advisable if you can to find a friend who has an area set up for this, or if not somebody who can help you by mining all around you while you are on your pig to see if you can entice it down a big hole.

Cow Tipper 15
Harvest Some Leather

Cows are plentiful in the world of Minecraft.In the tutorial level there is normally one pretty much next to you when you spawn, if not go to the farm mentioned in Leader Of The Pack to find some more. Cows will either drop leather or steak, so keep killing them until you get what you need.

Monster Hunter 20
Attack and destroy a monster.

As long as your difficulty is on peaceful, monsters will appear at night. Playing the tutorial level will advise you on how to kill them, but it is essentially hitting it with anything from your fists to a stove. This will pop when your first monster is slain.

Time To Strike 10
Use planks and sticks to make a sword.

You can make a sword pretty much from the word go. You will need one stick and two planks to make this, and can make it on your workbench. This is not mentioned in the tutorial but you will have the parts you need if you follow the steps to make the other tools

On A Rail 40
Travel by minecart to a point at least 500m in a single direction from where you started

If you have a friend with a ready made track, ask them nicely if you can take a ride and you can get this in a couple of minutes. If you decide to make it yourself you will need to do a lot of work to get all the bits you need.
In total you will need:
3 Redstone (In tutorial level there is lots in one of the chests near the start)
34 Sticks (From trees!)
18 Gold Bars (From gold ore (mined))
186 Iron Bars (From iron ore (mined))

From these you will need to make 18 powered rails and 496 powered rails. Now build a track 500 metres in any one direction (one block is one metre). You will probably need to terraform the land so you have a nice flat track. You need one powered rail every 31 normal ones to keep the power going to it, and need redstone at every powered rail to keep it going. Build yourself a minecart and ride to the end for this one to unlock. You may want to make the rail a little longer just to be safe.

Delicious Fish 15
Catch And Cook A Fish!

In the tutorial level there is a chest near the lake with many fishing rods in it. Use this to catch a fish in the aforementioned lake. Once you have one, cook it up in your furnace for a tasty fish dish and an achievement!

Getting An Upgrade 15
Constuct a better pickaxe

Use cobblestone and a stick to construct a pickaxe. You can find cobblestone behind the lake in the tutorial level. Construct this on your workbench for this one.

The Lie! 40
Bake a cake using wheat, sugar, milk and eggs!

Again, starting in the tutorial level, we need to find us some ingredients. There should be a chicken running around in the starting area, so follow him until he drops an egg. Next, head towards the castle and go in and into the ground floor level room on the right. There is a chest in here containing sugar. If you go to the right before going into the castle, you will enter a farm. Opposite the pens of animals there are some crops being grown. Mine these to get some wheat, there is loads here and you only need a few for the cake.

Getting the milk is the only relatively hard part. You need some iron ore to make some buckets to carry the milk. It is pretty common, so if you mine around enough you will find some sooner or later, and you will need coal to smelt it. Once you have some, you need to turn the ore into ingots, using your furnace to smelt it with coal as your fuel. You can make a bucket with three ingots, and you need three buckets, so 9 iron ores are required.
Once you have your buckets, go back to the farm and milk the cows with

Now you should have all the ingredients you need, so go to your workbench and create yourself a delicious treat!

Bake Bread 20
Turn wheat into bread

You will need three wheat to make bread. In the tutorial level, head to the farm (right at the castle courtyard), and you will see some crops being grown. Harvest these to get your wheat, and return to your workbench to bake a loaf

Time To Farm 10
Use planks and sticks to make a hoe


Following the tutorial will instruct you on how to do this. You will need two sticks and two planks for this.

Acquire Hardware 15
Smelt an iron ingot.

You will need to mine some iron ore for this. Iron ore is very common, just mine deep enough and you will find some soon enough. Using the diamond pickaxe you find in the tutorial level castle you will go through rock like butter. You need some coal as well, but again this is a very common mineral. Once you have both of these, use the coal as the fuel and the iron ore as the ingredient in your furnace, and you will produce a lovely iron ingot.

Hot Topic 15
Construct a furnace out of eight cobblestone blocks

Following the tutorial, you will be instructed on how to make a furnace. You will need to find some cobblestone, which can be found behind the fishing lake. 8 cobblestones put together on your workbench will create this.

Time To Mine 10
Use planks and sticks to make a pickaxe

You will be instructed on how to do this on the tutorial level if you follow all the steps. You will need two sticks and three planks.

Craft a workbench with four blocks of wooden planks

You will be instructed on how to make this during the tutorial. You will need just four blocks of wooden planks, and the achievement will unlock as soon as it is created.

Getting Wood 10
Punch a tree until the block of wood pops out.


On the tutorial level, this is the first thing you are instructed to do. Walk up to a tree and punch it using until it breaks and you get a block of wood. This will probably be the first achievement you get.

Taking Inventory 10
Open your inventory

Following the tutorial level, this will be the second achievement you get. Simply press to open it up and this will unlock.

Pretty easy set of achievements, On a Rail and When pigs fly are really the only ones that may take a while and perhaps leader of the pack

Has something changed since this guide was written? I see a chest full of iron tools, but no diamond.
