surviving the first night.
At the start you will want to make a picaxe after punching wood then making a picaxe to mine down and dig for stone.
for the first night all you really need to do is get stone tools (not a hoe) and make yourself a torch and place it in a wooden or dirt or both or stone house and make a wooden door and build a small shack.You also need meat to survive. by getting meat you will either punch or hit a cow pig sheep chicken etc etc. (to make a torch you put 1 piece of coal ontop a of a stick in the crafting table and you will get giving 4 torches.(you get coal from mining. you can mine it with a wooden pickaxe)
simple way to put it
make a wooden picaxe after punching wood, then mine down get stone. get stone tools (not hoe) make stone wooden or dirt house, wooden door and torch then make a small hut/shack.
