Minecraft console commands and cheats

ComputerCraft

Hard work: if it’s not for you, there’s always cheats and console commands. What better way to conquer the sprawling sandbox that is a Minecraft world than by pulling up the command bar, typing in some words and symbols and magic-ing yourself up a prissy clippy-cloppy pony with diamond armour?

How do you enter Minecraft commands?

Thankfully, Minecraft console commands are wonderfully simple to use. When creating a new Minecraft world you’ll be prompted to choose whether or not to allow cheats. After selecting yes and loading up the world, you’ll need to press the “C” key to pull up the command bar, which is where you’ll be inputting all your cheats and commands.

Any command you enter in single player will need to be prefixed by forward slash (/); multiplayer commands will not work with this prefix. Now it’s just a simple case of typing in the desired command and hitting the “Enter” key.

Help
/help [CommandName]

Give
/give [Amount] [DataValue]
Used to give another player an item from your inventory. Example: /give PCGamesN minecraft:planks 13 1. This would give PCGamesN 13 Spruce Wood Planks. This command is much simpler when giving single objects, but is useful for very specific trades.

If you've already started a world, you can still use cheats by opening it to LAN connections and selecting to allow cheats there.

I was excited to see that there was a /atlantis cheat because I have wanted to build underwater bases but I'm too slow underwater, and to be able to build without delay and put it to flood, it really worked me up. Sadly, this site lied, and my dreams have been ruined.

Only the basic cheats work, example /toggledownfall or /time set day. Non of the /ride or /instantplant or /itemdamage works. It is so stupid that it doesn't work and YOU KNOW IT! At this point you are cheating out people, people who actually wanna use WORKING CHEATS to help them in Minecraft. I am never using this website AGAIN for Minecraft cheats. I am telling all my friends to NEVER listen to this website for Minecraft. I can tell you're trying to help out, BUT help out by putting TRUE OR CORRECT commands for this videogame. THANK YOU! Have a great day!
