Minecraft has a giant bevy of cheat codes, and many of them will cut out the grind and tedium of the game. With them, you can play in survival mode yet still build like you're in creative mode and never have to worry about hunger, either. But what are these codes and how do you use them? Read on.
1. Enable cheat mode for your LAN game.
This is the simplest step. When you're generating a world, make sure you mark the checkbox named "Allow Cheats". If you don't have this setting toggled on, then all the cheat codes in this guide won't do anything.
2. Some special information about cheat codes.
An important thing to note before we get started are the cheat codes that target players. When you see this, you might be tempted to type your full name in to set yourself as the target. However, there is a much easier shortcut. Instead of typing your player name, simply enter @s as a substitute and it will automatically target you. As this guide is aimed for single player worlds, this is the only one you will be using.
For coordinates, these are expressed as x, y, and z. X is the distance east or west of the origin point, z is the distance south and north of the origin point, and y is the height from 0 to 255, where 0 is bed rock and 255 is the build limit.
You can also use the ~ or ^ notations to express coordinates relative to your current location. For example, ~5 ~ ~-5 will be 5 blocks east on the x axis, 0 blocks on the y axis, and 5 blocks north on the z axis relative to your position. The ^ notation is based on which direction you're looking, so ^5 ^ ^-5 will be 5 blocks too your left, 0 blocks upwards, and 5 blocks behind you.
However, the easiest way to find your current set of coordinates is to simply hit the F3 button to open the debug menu.
3. The Cheat Codes
In single-player, entering cheat codes is easy. Simply open the chat window and type them in. Here is a list of the cheat codes.
