Finding my house in minecraft

I wandered too far to go look for sheep and now I’m on a completely different island. How do I find my way back to my house?


If you have the correct supplies you could craft a compass. A compass will always point to your original spawn. To craft a compass you will need to arrange 4 iron ingots and 1 redstone, like so:

If you lack these supplies and want an alternative to using mod’s you could press F3 and this will display the debug screen. On this screen should be 3 coordinates (X, Y, Z). If your house is near your spawn (the place where you first appeared within that level), then you could just walk back to (X:0, Z:0). Generally you’ll spawn within about a 100 blocks of (X:0, Z:0).
