Well, in all these cases, often frequent, it is useful to have a bucket! In fact, through the bucket you are able to store what you find and that you could need elsewhere or in any case nearby: water, a precious asset with which you can create concrete and build splendid bases; the lava, which becomes hard and stainless obsidian, resistant to practically everything! But eating also counts! The milk that the cows offer you can be stored in a bucket to make wonderful and beautiful recipes. But the uses of the bucket are a thousand!
