Minecraft: How to Switch from Survival to Creative Mode


Minecraft: How to Switch from Survival to Creative Mode


To date, Minecraft remains one of the most successful video games of all time. The manner in which its building mechanics grant creative freedom to players, in combination with its emphasis on survival mechanics has been a winning formula. Sometimes, though, you just want to build in peace without lurking danger around every corner. Luckily, there’s a special Creative Mode for just that very purpose.

Accessing the mode differs depending on which platform you’re playing on.

Console / Pocket Edition

After booting up Minecraft, you are quickly brought to a menu where you can either make or select a world to play in. Scroll up from Load to the top of the options where you will see a tab called Game Mode, followed by whatever mode you were playing on. Select it and adjust until it reads as Creative, then load your game. You’re now playing on Creative. Be warned though, doing this will nullify any possible achievements you can get in that particular world seed.


First, load up the world you have that is already in Survival Mode. Once it’s loaded hit ESC on your keyboard and you’ll be brought to your Minecraft menu. From there, select Open to LAN and change the Allow Cheats option to “On”. Then hit Start LAN World and you’ll be brought back to your game. Now type /gamemode 1 and hit your enter key to officially switch it over to Creative Mode. If you ever want to go back to Survival, type in /gamemode 0.

That’s everything you need to know about how to switch from survival to creative mode in Minecraft. For more useful information on the game, be sure to search for Twinfinite.
