I Made the Smallest Base in Minecraft 1.17
Mumbo Jumbo
In this Mumbo Jumbo Minecraft redstone video, Mumbo builds the Smallest Minecraft Base in the Minecraft 1.17 update, as a follow up to the 2 year old video: I Made the Smallest Base in Minecraft 1.14. This tiny minecraft base is filled with Large Minecraft storage systems, automatic villager trading halls, Minecraft block swappers, automatic minecraft farms and more. This is a 1x1 Minecraft base (interior), or a 3x3 Minecraft base (exterior), and it's only a 2 block tall minecraft base.

    I love how mumbo instinctively grabbed the diamond sword to kill the wandering trader instead of a netherite one, old habits die hard I guess.

      @Silver5kull it's spelled 'habit' though. Or is it spelt differently in different countries?

    People like Grian flex by building huge, excessively detailed, spectacular mansions. People like Mumbo flex by building tiny, compact, fully-functional bases with complex hidden redstone mechanisms.

    If you use one more lectern to have a double input you can store 225 different item types. The ammout of chest minecarts is limitless. So basically if you minimize hard enough you can create a 3 lectern system that decodes the input into basically all you want to be swaped. It is truely mindblowing and what I will try to do now.

    • General Misery

      @Meow I am at 512 (256 x 2) items in a rather compact design (after 4 version). It is very slow, but just as fast as walking around (problem is hopper speed and water speed). It also lags a bit. I halted the 1k+ version because of the lag. I have a problem with rare items where there are less than 48 of and I am looking forward to something with a special system. Next I want a dropper system, because it should work faster. I might also try a system that beaks shulkers, since they now are renewable or one that dispenses shulkers. For the shulker dispensing I did think of a sorting station system before storage, I just would need to figure out how to sort shulker boxes compact. Lag is a big problem, I think there is a limit to the client side that I cannot pass. Next year I should be done with the sorting system.

    You forgot to fill all the areas with dirt walls with clickable items as well. I mean sure, you could say that extends the distance out of your 3x3 area but you are still inside your walled-in 3x3 base with a bit of exterior reach. The only thing left to do after that is waterlog the base so that TNT and creepers can't blow it up from the topsoil.

    It just dawned on me that it looks hugely like a funeral when Mumbo’s laying on the bed. The berry bushes really don’t help haha.

    • SephirothRyu

      It IS a funeral. For the common sense of anyone who ever builds houses in minecraft. Never again will we listen to common sense frolic happily in our vaguely decorated two story stone, log, and plank houses. Never again, will we hear its happy feet romping joyfully through the yard while we yell at it in terror because we see a creeper somewhere in render distance and are in a panic getting out the cat. Common sense is gone now, and we are gathered here today in remembrance of its good run.

      actually, I think that Mumbo could make it a tiny bit smaller. (Almost impossible, but Mumbo could nail it. Just one thing appears in front, with a giant redstone circuit underneath the ground. It's still a base, only you can't reside in it.)

Also, did I mention the piston door?

    A base may be made with thousands or millions of blocks, fully made from diamonds and emeralds. But what's important is, as long as you place a furnace next to a crafting table, it is home. Edit 6 months later: Not to be that guy but thanks for the likes, I've never gotten this many.
