Minecraft is a game in which you place blocks to build things. It’s pretty simple, right? Wrong! In fact, there are many commands that players use to play the game and make it more interesting. This article will guide you through making some of those commands yourself. However, not all functions can be achieved this way as Minecraft does not allow you to easily change some things. We will go over what we can do, and note that we cannot do the rest.
what makes minecraft different from other games is mods. mods are third party programs which interface with the game through an API such as Forge or ModLoader. these mods can replace textures, add new items and blocks, and change the rules of the game. for example, if you install a mod called ‘water sucks’ then water will actually suck (pull the player towards it)!
for this tutorial we will use an API called WorldEdit which allows us to quickly make basic modifications to our world in-game. there are many APIs available so read up on them to find the best one for your needs.
we will begin by installing WorldEdit which can be found here: []. once you have it, put it in the ‘mods’ folder of your minecraft directory (or wherever mods are stored on your computer). if you’re using windows 7 or 8 it should automatically be installed.
after the mod is installed, open your minecraft launcher and click ‘edit profile’. after that, tick ‘launch with forge’ and you should be good to go. now run your game once by clicking play so it can generate needed folders and files for WorldEdit to use.
the next step is to craft an axe. this axe is special as it will allow you to use the WorldEdit commands by simply pressing ‘v’ (as long as your cursor is over a block).
the crafting recipe for the WorldEdit axe looks like this:
after that, just run around cutting down trees and placing blocks until you have about 16 cobblestone. now you have the materials needed to craft a WorldEdit wand!
the crafting recipe for the WorldEdit wand looks like this:
after you have your wands it’s time to learn some commands. type ‘//help’ into chat to see all available commands in game. there are many so I will not explain them here just keep in mind that you must have the correct wand selected in your hotbar to use a specific command. this is achieved by pressing ‘q’ while holding an item.
//replace – replaces all blocks in range of you with another block or set of blocks
//pos1 – use this command to mark the position you want to build at, then use //pos1 again to return back there
//pos2 – this marks the position you want to build relative to the original mark, useful for building large areas
//expand 2 – expands your selection in all directions by two blocks. use //expand n where n is any number up to 3 which acts as a multiplier (so 6 would expand by 3 blocks in all directions).
//outline – creates a border between solid blocks and air, useful for building things like walls
//hpos1 – sets the position you are looking at as your current position. can be used with //set or //pos1 to quickly build structures using this point as the center.
//help – tells you all possible commands in game
//pos1 – move to the position marked with //pos1. can be used with //set or //hpos1 so you can quickly return to a desired point in your structure.
//set – sets a new current position which can be moved around using //hpos2 and returned back to using //pos1.
//pos2 – changes the position you’re looking at to the mark set with //pos2
//expand n – expand your selection in all directions by a multiplier of n (so 2 would go two blocks out, 3 goes three etc)
//outline – create a border between solid blocks and air
