Preliminary information

Before going into the details of the procedure on how to go to Creative on Minecraft, I think it may interest you to know more about this mode and find out how it differs from the others present within the Mojang title.

Well, the Creative mode differs from the classic Survival mode in that there is neither life nor hunger. This means that you can roam around the world of Minecraft without having to fear the hostilities generally present in it.

What is all this for? Well, to become familiar with the elements present in the game and, as can be seen from the name of the mode, to express their creativity through them. In fact, in Creative mode you have all the elements of the game available in the inventory, without even having to build them.

This means that it is possible to create particularly complex structures in a relatively short time, since you do not have to go looking for the necessary materials, an operation that can sometimes take several hours of play.

If you want examples of advanced structures that can be built in Minecraft, I recommend that you take a look at my tutorials on how to build a farm in Minecraft and how to build a football field in Minecraft. Obviously, these are just a few examples, but the limit in this case is the imagination, as the objects in Mojang’s title can be used in myriad combinations.

Another important aspect related to the Creative mode is the ability to fly. In fact, the player can move quickly around the game world and reach any element present within the Minecraft map, even in height.

In short, you will surely have understood why the fans of the Mojang title appreciate and have fun in Creative mode, which among other things is also widely used to quickly access the elements introduced by the mods created by the community. This is not to mention the fact that many are trying to build a complex structure first in Creative mode and only then in Survival mode, so as not to waste materials.

Finally, it must be said that, generally, a game of this type has the controls activated. This means that it is possible to use the “tricks”: another aspect much appreciated by fans. However, Creative mode is often not set by default on Minecraft and must therefore be activated manually. This is the goal of the tutorial you are about to follow.

How do you go in Creative on Minecraft

After showing you what Minecraft Creative is all about, I’d say it’s time to take action and understand how to get into a game of this type. Below you will find all the relevant information for the various platforms on which the Mojang title (now owned by Microsoft) is available.

How to go Creative on Minecraft PC

Minecraft is played heavily on computers via the popular Java edition of the title. If you use it too, here’s how you need to proceed.

To create a game in this mode, simply start the game, click the Single Player button and press the Create a New World button. At this point, choose the name of the game, press the Mode button until the Creative item appears and click the Create a new world button to continue.

This way, you will be catapulted into the world of Minecraft in Creative mode. Please note that the entries for creating a new game may differ slightly depending on the version of the game you are using, but you shouldn’t have any particular problems following the directions I gave you earlier.

If, on the other hand, you already have a game started in another mode and you want to “transform” it into Creative, you can do it in an equally simple way: just enter the game in question, press the Esc button on the keyboard and click on the Open in LAN button.

After that, set the Commands option to Yes and hit the Start the world on LAN button. This way, you will not only enable commands for other players, but also for you.

So you just need to press the T button on the keyboard, type the command /gamemode creativeand press Enter. The game will warn you that the mode has been changed successfully.

At this point, if you don’t want to stay on the LAN, just exit and re-enter the game. You will see that Creative mode will remain set. If this does not happen, you simply have to repeat the short procedure that I showed you earlier.

Perfect, you have successfully achieved your goal: now you know how to go into Creative mode for the Java PC edition of Minecraft.

How to go Creative on Minecraft Bedrock Edition

If you have purchased the Bedrock version of Minecraft, the procedure for accessing the Creative mode differs slightly from that of the Java edition for PC. In this chapter I will give you a practical example of how to access the aforementioned mode from mobile devices, but the steps to be taken are almost identical even on Windows 10 and video game consoles (i.e. the other platforms for which Minecraft Bedrock is available).

To create a game in Creative mode, you need to follow the path Play> Create New> Create New World, type the name of the game, change the Default Game Mode option to Creative and press the Continue buttons (to accept that you will not receive trophies) and Create. This way, you will enter a game in Creative mode.

As regards, instead, the modification of a game already started in another mode, you just need to go to the main menu where all the worlds are present, press on the pencil icon on the right of the game you want to modify, change the default game mode in Creative and crush the button Play.

As mentioned before, the Bedrock version of Minecraft is available for both mobile devices and other platforms, such as Windows 10 and video game consoles. This means that if you are wondering, for example, how to go to Creative on Minecraft for Nintendo Switch or how to go to Creative on Minecraft for PS4, the procedure I have explained above is also valid for these platforms.

Finally, since you like the video game developed by Mojang, I would advise you to take a look at the page of my site dedicated to Minecraft, where you can find several guides that could be for you. For example, you might be interested in taking a look at my tutorial on how to start Minecraft, in which I have explained a little bit everything there is to know about the various modes available.
