How to get a command block in Minecraft and automate your world

In Minecraft, command blocks are powerful tools that allow you to automate various actions and commands within your world. To obtain a command block and use it for automation, follow these steps:

1. Enable Cheats (Creative or Admin Mode):

  • Command blocks require cheats to be enabled in your world. You can either create a new world with cheats enabled or enable them in an existing world.
  • To enable cheats when creating a new world, go to “Create New World,” click on “More World Options,” and toggle the “Allow Cheats” option to “ON.”
  • In an existing world, you can open the world to LAN with cheats enabled by pressing F3 + N (Java Edition) or by enabling cheats in the world’s settings (Bedrock Edition).

2. Gather the Required Resources (Creative Mode):

  • In Creative Mode, you can access the command block directly from your inventory without needing to craft it. Simply open your inventory and search for “command block.”

3. Obtain a Command Block (Survival Mode):

  • In Survival Mode, you cannot obtain command blocks through crafting. You’ll need to use the “/give” command to give yourself a command block. This requires cheats to be enabled.
  • Open the chat and type the following command to obtain a command block:
    /give <your_username> minecraft:command_block

    Replace <your_username> with your in-game username.

4. Place the Command Block:

  • Once you have a command block, you can place it in your world like any other block. Right-click (Java Edition) or tap (Bedrock Edition) where you want to place it.

5. Configure the Command Block:

  • Right-click (Java Edition) or tap (Bedrock Edition) on the placed command block to open its interface.
  • In the command block interface, you can enter the command you want to execute automatically. For example, you can use a command block to summon creatures, change the time, or perform other actions.
  • Configure the command block’s settings, including whether it should be always active or require redstone input to trigger.

6. Activate the Command Block:

  • To activate the command block, you can provide a redstone signal to it by placing redstone dust, a lever, a button, or any redstone component adjacent to the command block.
  • When the redstone signal is applied, the command block will execute the command you configured.

7. Test and Fine-Tune:

  • Test your command block’s functionality to ensure it works as intended. You may need to adjust the command or redstone circuitry to achieve the desired automation.

8. Save and Enjoy:

  • Once you’re satisfied with your automated setup, save your world and enjoy the convenience of automation in Minecraft.

Keep in mind that command blocks can execute powerful and potentially game-changing commands, so use them responsibly, especially on multiplayer servers or shared worlds.
