      Above it looks cool to show off to other minecrafters and once I built and underground lair In minecraft xbox ,a creeper blew up and broke my home (R.I.P all my 163 diamonds ;( )

    • Ihatesquids87 2 years ago

      Its cool.

    • Ihatesquids87 2 years ago

      Its cool.

      Underground if ur a troller so u can hide but above ground if u like blastin buildings and players with tnt cannons. I like minecraft warfare so use what works best for u to protect ur base and grief others.

    • anonymous 3 years ago

      It's safer above ground cause there's food and light and monsters can't reach you :)

    • anonymous 3 years ago

      Above

    • anonymous 3 years ago

      Lol because i rather be looking at the sky and other amazing views of minecraft nature then be looking at dirt everyday xD

    • anonymous 3 years ago

      I think its safer from googlies , but if u r playing with ur friends they can't find ur house and steal stuff if u have a chest BUT I only play on creative so yeah....

    • anonymous 3 years ago

      Also pls check out my channel and give me a few subs. Btw I will be posting some videos soon because i only just started.

    • anonymous 3 years ago

      Definitely above ground, It looks way better. I'm not worried about getting killed and getting my precious diamonds stolen because i live all alone. ALONE!!! ALL ALONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • anonymous 3 years ago

      bove ground in a tree house count me in I have always wanted a tree house so yea and since I play alone

      (forever alone :( ) I enjoy all the beautiful views T

      Yours sincerely

      Misskitten111

    • anonymous 3 years ago

      ok so MONKEYFACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • anonymous 3 years ago

      got to be above so.... yeh

    • anonymous 3 years ago

      above it looks a lot better

    • anonymous 3 years ago

      above

    • anonymous 3 years ago

      above

    • anonymous 3 years ago

      Above because when u come out of a cave monsters are around u at night so u could just run u to ur base and no monsters would come it would also be a good source of leaves or wood

    • anonymous 3 years ago

      better protection and stuff, above ground.

    • anonymous 3 years ago

      In creative?

      Above ground looks SO much more attractive.

    • anonymous 3 years ago

      above ground like your mom

    • anonymous 3 years ago

      Tree house!

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      Above Ground! It's faster, cooler, and has a lot more protection from monsters.

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAbove ground because i used to make houses underground and that took ffffooooooooorrrrreeevvvvvveeeeeeeerrrrrr so now i just make houses above ground cause its way easier

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      Above ground you can make whatever you want

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      Above ground so you can make a mansion!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      dude i dont wanna be killed by mobs u want underground and safe?make a basement duh

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      treehouses r way better but watch out for falls

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      isnt it obvious (if it isnt i tell u) both r real good treehouse watch out for falls but if underground watch out for mobs

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      yeah, both r really good but still u should have a treehouse with intruder defenses and; (if all else fails)

      you can have an enderground safe zone

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      if you want to be very hidden i would recomend underground but if u want to brag i totally recomend treehouses,its a really good way to survive in jungles easily

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      Trees

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      Above

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      Tree house totally

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      I say that they both have good benefits. Above ground recieves rain, which is beneficial as it has properties that Bone Meal has. Plus you don't have to climb to the top and get resources. Underground is a lot safer and quieter, but your at risk of mobs and other bad happenings. If you would, I would make a two-story home with a large underground basement. Then you can do things that you need for both.

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      Above and Below would be epic

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      Underground

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      my house would be flying :)

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      Underwater.

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      * Views! Jeesh! :P

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      There are beautiful veiws above ground, and there is more "natural" light!

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      ground

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      above because then everyone can see all of it

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      Above because you can show it off

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      above

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      above because if you get lost you could see it from a distance

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      Above

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      above because ther would be no mobs

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      above ground because then it isn't really a tree house if it isn't above ground. also i love building treehouse complexes in jungles.

    • KayeSI 4 years ago

      My grandkids like both but I like above ground, fewer monsters. :)

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      Above

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      I say.......up your vagina

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      ABOVE GROUND!!!! mobs will just kill you underground so definitely ABOVE!!!

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      Above Ground... SKY CASTLESSSS underground homes are shitty and dark

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      ME GUSTA!

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      Tottally above ground

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      Above Duhh?

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      Both cause. I could have an a some tree house and under ground housel

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      In single player, I make my bases above ground because they are easier to see, find, and get back to if I am lost.

      In multiplayer, I make a disguised underground base to ward off snoopers/ griefers.

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      i say above ground because you can make the outside look puuurrtttyyy

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      ahhh my typing is messed up today.

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      srrty coal not cool

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      Above ground is better,you don't use as much torches and waste your cool,and you can see clouds,sun,and the blue sky. Underground is dark, alot of mobs spawn, you could run into a cave while building your underground house,and it doesnt look nice with dirt and stone everywhere.

    • NuclearSquid 4 years ago

      up!

    • Darcie French 4 years ago from Abbotsford, BC

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      I would haVe my house above the ground but a ladder(or something) to go straight down to a mine

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      Above Ground

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      woohoo

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      I only have the minecraft pocket edition version 0.4.0 alpha so I can't experience all the cool stuff however I do think above ground is better because for one, sunlight can be absorbed through windows and second of all, the structure of your buildings can be fancier because there is more space.

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      Above ground is less chance of mobs spauning and easyer to find than a cheep stupid underground i dictht my old mountainside house for a TREEHOUSE YEY!

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      d: and minecraft is the best game ever!

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      can you make a tutorial please?

    • Sojourn 5 years ago

      I like the above ground houses - especially the ones that seem to balance on just part of a hill or mountain.

    Underground is way better!

      • hi 20 months ago

        under ground is the best because u can hide and get resources hi

      • anonymous 3 years ago

        Why build above ground??????? Underground has so many more options

      • anonymous 3 years ago

        i mean safer from googlies #above

        friends stealing stuff #under

      • anonymous 3 years ago

        Underground over ground wombling free!

      • anonymous 3 years ago

        I need how to build stuff in minecraft pc not this stupid thing!

      • anonymous 3 years ago

        Under grounds way better cause u can hide from other players that wanna kill u

      • anonymous 3 years ago

        @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

      • anonymous 3 years ago

        well underground would be good to mine in and hiding from players encase they want to kill u or steal your diamonds :o but being above ground would be good for looks and um... ye above ground would only be good for looks so UNDERGROUND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • anonymous 3 years ago

        I'm good enough with Redstone that I can build below ground and be fine... secret entrances that creatures can't use

      • anonymous 3 years ago

        under so you can avoid mobs and players at the same time. :)

      • anonymous 3 years ago

        under so you can avoid mobs and players at the same time. :)

      • anonymous 3 years ago

        Under

      • anonymous 3 years ago

        You can stay hidden from other players (in case they decide to grief/kill you or steal your stuff. Also, you can just mine into the side of your house and instantly create a branch mine, without all of that digging down.

      • anonymous 3 years ago

        Above the ground of course! I would totally prefer a floating island castle than a dark hole in the ground where there's no sunlight.

      • anonymous 3 years ago

        Underground

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        i say underground because you have plenty of space to build, and, you can get materials while making your underground base instead of losing them. Of course it may take a bit more time to clear out an area, but then you wont have to go looking for cobblestone for weeks! And there is always a small chance of finding a mob spawner :) As for monsters and such, how do they spawn if you light it up enough inside and surround the area where you come out with torches? simple as that :)

        However for creative mode i think it is rather obvious to live in the outside wold as nothing can harm you and you've gotta make th most of creative mode and what the seed offers :D

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        Above because you would if you are being attacked you would see and you can make a quick escape without being seen come out of a tunnel

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        under ground

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        Underground. It provides more protection from the monsters and you have more room. That, and it doesn't use as many materials and can be used for secret laboratories >:D

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        Under

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        Underground rocks!!!!! Except for when mobs spawn there and then I die ð

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        I made a Nukeular bomb to make a big building area! BTW I am 6!!!

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        i once made a luxury house underground and i used waterfall to hide the door.

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        Under ground because TNT explosions are cool and mining is fun.

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        In multi-player i prefer underground, you are much harder to find and you can build limitless structures that only you have access to!

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        I love tunneling underground :D

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        I love tunneling underground :D

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        Underground so that there's less creepers to blow you up

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        Underground

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        underground cause enemys cant get there easily

      • omakiller45 4 years ago

        Easier resources

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        I would rather be under ground

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        NOOB TREE HOUSE

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        but that tree house is so f**king epic

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        both

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        ive made my base in a volcano which has a minecart system to the underground main HQ which contains a big open space that contains a treehouse. best of both worlds underground.

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        UNDERGROUND because ppl cant grief it unless they mine through it accidently. I u put it above ground you are asking for a bad day

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        Underground is best. especially if you can make it completely invisable

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        underground is way better! No rain, lightning, and if you do it right, no mobs. Look me up on Minecraft Xbox 360 edition if you play it!

      Minecraft Seeds for Tree Houses

      There are currently no seeds (that i know of!) that start out with a Tree House, so these are all seeds that i've found that help you make a tree house faster and easier.

      Don't add in the quotation marks.

      - "canada"

      - "Bambi"

      - "-1501881007"

      - "-1131107418"

      - "-2456051397048612605"

      Add an awesome seed for tree houses you don't see here?

          I'll have to share with my youngest son. He's hooked on MineCraft and I've been completely blown away by the things you can design and build. He also watches tons of MineCraft videos and then sings the cool songs all day. Love watching his creativity grow and the songs are rather charming.
