Cheating Dome presents: Minecraft for PC
Printer friendly version
The directory on your computer for Minecraft saved worlds and settings differs depending on what OS you’re running.
On Windows: C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft
Take note that the AppData directory is hidden, so be sure to show hidden files from within Folder Options.
On Mac OS: /Users/username/Library/Application Support/minecraft
On Linux: /home/username/.minecraft
The "Saves" folder is what you want to back up. In Singleplayer, whenever you press "T" on your keyboard, a command prompt screen will appear in the bottom corner. Use the cheats below to switch between survival mode and creative mode. As long as you clicked "Allow Cheats: On" when creating the world (under the "More World Options" button), these cheats will work. Switching between Survival and Creative modes can be quite useful. For example: If you switch to Creative Mode after a respawn, you can fly to the spot where you died to quickly retrieve your items. You can also switch to creative to prevent death; when you're caught in lava or water, switching to creative will make you invincible as long as you're still in that mode. Creative Mode has every item available through a selection screen, accessible in the same way as the normal inventory screen. You can use it to select an item you need, such as food or weapons, and dragging the item(s) to the "Survival Inventory" tab or the quick access bar.
You'll need an Iron Bucket and the ability to dig into the floor a little.
1. Dig a 2 by Hole in the ground that is 1 square deep
2. Fill your bucket/s with water from the ocean or a lake. You only need 2 deposits, so taking 2 buckets is recommended.
3. Bring the water back to your base and pour 1 Bucket in each corner of the square in the ground.
If done correctly, you should have a still 2 by 2 pool of water. Every time you take a bucket and use it on any of the squares, the others refill it to fullness.
Alternate method you could use: You will need 2 water buckets. Now dig a STRAIGHT line with 3 holes like this: If "=" equals a line, make this "===". Dig 3 holes STRAIGHT and then put 1 water bucket in each end and then get the Water from the middle and the water well keep regening so the water is Infinite. Here is a list of keyboard shortcuts you can use.
