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

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 Nether40
Construct a Nether Portal. (121) 

To create a nether portal you need 10 obsidian blocks. This can be quite a challenge - you need a diamond pickaxe to mine obsidian and obsidian is rare. Obsidian is made from lava and water, so look where you see the two things together to try to find it.

Once you have them, the blocks must be placed 5 blocks high and 4 blocks wide to create a frame. Note that the corners of this frame can be left out. Once this is done, the bottom of the portal must be lit on fire with flint and steel (a fire tool), then the achievement is yours.

Refer to this video if you're having trouble:

Dispense With This20
Construct a Dispenser. (29) 

To Construct a dispenser you need 7 cobblestone, 1 bow, and 1 redstone.

Redstone can be found very deep underground and looks like a stone block with red dots in it. Cobblestone is very common - just mine the gray blocks you see. Finally, the bow has to be crafted from three sticks and three pieces of string. String can be obtained by killing spiders.

Once you have all of the items, open the "Weapons" tab of the inventory and craft your bow, then tab across to the "Redstone" tab in your inventory and create the dispenser.

MOAR Tools15
Construct one type of each tool (one pickaxe, one spade, one axe and one hoe). (11) 

To do this, you just need a good amount of sticks and wood planks. Once you have it, open your inventory, go to "Tools", and craft away!

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 Pack30
Befriend five wolves. (128) 

This is simple, but potentially time consuming. First, you want to have about 20 bones from slaying zombies or walking around early in the morning and picking up what is left of them, since daylight kills zombies.

After you have 20 bones, walk around until you find wolves and tame them by using the bone on them with RT. You may have to do this multiple times per wolf. If you  use LT the bone on them the whole pack will attack (and most likely kill) you, so be careful.

Repeat this five times and the achievement is yours!

When Pigs Fly40
Use a saddle to ride a pig, then have the pig get hurt from fall damage while riding it. (245) 

First, go find caves and run around in them until you find chest in rooms with mossy cobblestone all around them. These are called dungeons. Keep doing this until you find a saddle in one of the chest. It isn't too rare, but it could take a few tries. This is the only way to get a saddle.

Once you have your saddle, go find a pig and put the saddle on it. You cannot control the pig once you hop on - it will just run around willy nilly. There's a bit of luck involved in this aspect, but it won't take too many tried before the pig hurts itself falling somewhere.

Refer to this video if you're having trouble:

Cow Tipper15
Harvest some leather. (7) 

Simply find a cow, kill it, and harvest leather. If you don't have a weapon, refer to "Time to Strike!." Not all cows give leather, so this may take a few tries.

Monster Hunter20
Attack and destroy a monster. (8) 

Simply slay any monster found at night. If your difficulty is on peaceful, you should raise it to at least normal to get this. Zombies are the easiest to kill. Just wait until night and go searching and it won't take long to find an enemy. When you do, kill it and the achievement is yours.

Time to Strike!10
Use planks and sticks to make a sword. (9) 

Grab a sticks and two wooden planks, open the inventory, and tab across to the "Weapons" tab. Select the sword and create it.

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 Rail40
Travel by minecart to a point at least 500m in a single direction from where you started. (431) 

This is one of the most time-consuming achievements in the game. It requires about an hour of mining. If you have friends with this game, this achievement would be worth doing together, because once the track is made, anyone can ride it for the achievement.

So in total, you will need 3 redstone, 34 sticks, 18 gold bars and 186 iron bars. Use these to make a total of 18 powered rails and 496 normal rails via the "Minecart" tab in your inventory. Minecarts can also be made in this tab with 5 iron bars.

Once you have all this, simply build the track in one straight direction with 1 powered rail to every 31 normal rails. Keep in mind you will also have to alter the terrain by moving trees, flattening hills, etc. Continue this until your track is 500 blocks long (because one block is equal to one meter).

Note: You will have to place a redstone torch next to each of your powered rails to power it. These are made from one redstone dust and one stick in the redstone tab of the inventory.

Note: An easy lanuching method: So your minecart doesn't run off before you jump in it, place a powered rail at the end of your track. When unpowered, these rails act as stopping pads. Place your minecart down, then power the powered rail. Also don't forget to block the end of your track off with a block, so your minecarts don't go flying off at the end!

Delicious Fish15
Catch and cook a fish! (24) 

You need a fishing rod to catch a fish. To craft a fishing rod, grab some sticks and some string. Open the "Tools" tab of the inventory and you'll be able to craft it.

To obtain string, you have to kill spiders. You'll usually need to kill four or five spiders to get enough string, but if you get lucky it could only take one.

After you have obtained a fishing rod, head to some water. Use your rod and a fishing bobber will fly out. Wait until this bobber sinks under water, then use the rod again to pull it in. A fish should come flying towards you. Pick it up.

Now, take this raw fish to the furnace and cook it. When it's done, you'll have a cooked fish and an achievement.

Getting an Upgrade15
Construct a better pickaxe. (9) 

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 Lie40
Bake a cake using wheat, sugar, milk and eggs! (66) 

To make a cake you need one egg, three pieces of wheat, three pieces of milk, and two pieces of sugar.

For the egg find a chicken running around somewhere and follow it until it poops an egg, then just take it.

To get wheat, hit RT on the ground with your hoe until you get some wheat seeds. To plant them, find some ground next to water and use your hoe on the ground (grass or dirt - either will grow wheat). Then use the hoe again to till the ground and plant the seeds. You'll have to wait 1-3 in-game days for the wheat to grow before you can harvest it. Once it has grown, whack it with your hoe again to harvest it.

For milk, you must craft three buckets from nine pieces of iron (craft them in the "Food" tab). Then use those buckets on a cow and you'll receive milk.

Sugar must be crafted from sugar cane. These can be found on the outskirts of lakes (they resemble reeds).

Once you have all these, go to the "Food" tab in the inventory and create your lie cake.

Bake Bread20
Turn wheat into bread. (17) 

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. (12) 

You need two sticks and two wooden planks make a hoe. From there, just open the inventory, go to the "Tools" tab, and craft it.

Acquire Hardware15
Smelt an iron ingot. (17) 

For this you will need some coal and at least 1 iron ore.

These both can be found anywhere underground. Coal looks like a stone block with blacks spots in it, iron ore looks like a stone block with brown spots in it.

Dig around until you find some of each, then return to your furnace. Place the iron in the top square and the coal in the top square and then wait for it to do the work.

Note: you may want to take multiple stone pickaxes with you as they break fairly easily. It is also worth taking some sticks, that way you can create some torches as soon as you find some coal.

Hot Topic15
Construct a furnace out of eight cobblestone blocks. (7) 

Walk around until you see a grey block - gray blocks are stone.

Mine the stone to obtain some cobblestone. Once you have eight, open the inventory and on the "Structures" tab select the furnace and construct it.

Time to Mine!10
Use planks and sticks to make a pickaxe. (7) 

First, get some sticks and wooden planks - you'll two sticks and three wooden planks. Once you have that, go to the "Tools" tab of the inventory and create a wooden pickaxe.

Craft a workbench with four blocks of wooden planks. (5) 

First you will need to mine some wood from a tree and then use crafting to make that into wooden planks,

Description pretty much says it all, press  to access the crafting menu and use four blocks of those wooden planks to make yourself a handy little workbench.

Getting Wood10
Punch a tree until the block of wood pops out. (15) 

Go up to any tree and hit LT until it breaks. When it does, the achievement will unlock.

Taking Inventory10
Open your inventory. (67) 

Just press Y to open your inventory? and the achievement will pop. It's that easy.
