Step 1 – Press ‘C’ to enter the code builder
Then select the first option which should say Microsoft MakeCode.
Step 2 – Click the Import button
Step 3 – Click the Import URL option
Step 4 – Copy this URL into your clipboard
Select one of the following URLs and then press Ctrl-C or right click and select ‘Copy’. Remember to select the whole URL:
Step 5 – Paste the URL into the address box
|https://makecode.com/_Wz2UpFiMHgXv||Building Structures 2.3 – requires operator permissions|
|https://makecode.com/_iwraHrcwjF5e||v2.0: Tunnel, stairs, room, wall, square, house, walls and pyr (pyramid) commands|
|https://makecode.com/_0Dva7MVkP6Jw||v1.1: Tunnel, stairs, room, wall, square and house commands|

Step 6 – Examine the imported code
There are 2 main chat commands, but you will notice something different about them (see red arrows).
Step 7 – Test the chat commands
When you call or run the digd or tun chat commands you must provide a parameter. This tells the code how many levels to dig down (digd) or how long to make the tunnel (tun).
Tip 1 – Turn on coordinates in settings
It’s a good idea to change your settings to display your coordinates when you are mining. You should keep an eye on the ‘y’ coordinate as it gets closer to zero. Why?
