Minecraft is still one of the most played games in the world. Is Minecraft overhyped? Maybe, but there’s no denying the fact that people have used it to create massive, sprawling worlds that can take days to traverse. Despite the primitive graphics, these worlds are so grand and so lively that they may as well be real.
The five game modes in Minecraft are Survival, Creative, Adventure, Spectator and Hardcore. In the level.dat, Survival mode is gametype=0, Creative is gametype=1, Adventure is gametype=2, and Spectator is gametype=3. Hardcore is Survival with the addition of hardcore=1 (for Survival and Creative,hardcore=0). This knowledge allows hacking to change game modes by editing the world’s level.dat. The command “/gamemode” can be used to switch between these. In bedrock edition, “/gamemode 1” would put you into creative mode. It is worth noting, that since 1.13, Java Edition no longer accepts shorthand or numeric IDs. Therefore, “/gamemode 1” would become “/gamemode creative”
You can also change the gamemode in Bedrock edition by quitting the world and going to Edit World, then tapping Creative or Survival and then returning to the game or by using the /gamemode cheat if cheats are enabled.
What is Minecraft Creative Mode?
Creative is a game mode that is available in all versions of Minecraft. Creative mode gives you unlimited resources, free flying and lets you destroy blocks instantly when mining. When you create a world in Minecraft, you can easily switch back and forth between Survival and Creative modes using the /gamemode command. Let’s explore interesting ideas for Minecraft Creative Mode.
Knit a Sweater
Why not knit a Minecraft sweater? Test out your new sweater design in Minecraft before knitting it for real.
Seasonal wear challenge: Try making a new Minecraft outfit for yourself for each season. Start with your winter sweater and add an outfit for the spring, summer, and fall too.
Host a fashion show: Invite your friends and have your very own fashion show. Pick a theme, anything really. Cute dinosaurs. Fall in Paris. Argyle scarves.
Make it for real: Try knitting your sweater, scarf, or dinosaur for real.
Design a Fireworks Show
Design your very own Minecraft fireworks show! There are many types of fireworks to choose from—check out a fireworks crafting guide for help. Add some extra spice to your fireworks show by:
Using redstone: Fireworks can be shot out of dispensers. Use redstone to create intricate, timed fireworks shows.
Adding music: Add some music to your show with a jukebox or some note blocks. Put in music that is related to different countries. For example, if you are using red and yellow, that’s like the China Flag. You can even look up Chinese music to go with it. If you are using blue and white, that’s like Greece—look up Greek music!
Setting the scene: Pick your location and time of day for the best show. Typing /time set dusksets the time to dusk. You can use /time set to get night, day, or dawn as well.
