Creative mode is one of the main game modes in Minecraft. Creative mode strips away the survival aspects of Minecraft and allows players to easily create and destroy structures and mechanisms.
- In console editions and Windows 10, opening a world in creative mode disables Achievements and Leaderboards for that world.
- In creative mode, players can get spawn eggs out of their inventory which can spawn all mobs, excluding bosses and Golems.
- There are multiple items such as Silverfish Blocks that are exclusive to Creative Mode.
- Creative mode is available on Minecraft, Minecraft Pocket Edition, Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition, Minecraft PlayStation 3 Edition, and Windows 10.
- A group of players in the Xbox-360 edition used the Duplication glitch to get 254 of any item in order to improve their maps or to provide resources to other guests. Updates on the glitch were never official, but it instead reduced the chances of every successful duplication. For example, before the updates, it only took one try with the dispenser glitch to get 254 items. However, when the updates came, it was reduced to three tries and was later fully patched in another update. So far, the furnace glitch isn`t fully patched, and does the same thing, except the success rate is much lower than first patched dispenser.
- In the PS3 edition, the inventory is unchanged, but the crafting menu is replaced with the creative mode inventory, which is the same as the Creative Mode inventory in other editions.
- As of Snapshot 12w15a, when using the copy block on something such as Redstone Wire, Snow Layer, or a Nether/End Portal, it would give the player exactly what they clicked (ex. Using copy block on a Snow Layer will give the user the snow layer.).
- When the player uses Copy Block on an entity (Excluding the Enderdragon, Players, or Piston Heads), it will give them the respective egg. Also, when the spawn egg is used on its relative mob, it spawns a baby mob, but only for non-hostile mobs. Endermen, Spiders, or Squids do not count.
- As of version 1.3.1, the Creative mode inventory is categorized into various tabs of items and blocks to help players find blocks easier.
- The only ways to die in creative mode are to fall into the void or to use the /kill command to kill the player if they are playing on the PC version.
- In Console Editions, players cannot break the bedrock layer separating the Overworld and the Void, even in creative mode.
- In 1.12 (upcoming), the miscellaneous tab is merged with the materials tab, which is on the bottom-left, to give room for the new Toolbars tab.

Drops See the items that drop from entities and blocks. For drops as in falls, see Fall Damage. Typical drops from a skeleton: experience orbs, an arrow, and bones. Drops are items that can be picked up by the player, but if the hotbar is already full, the items will go in the Survival inventory. Blocks that are destroyed by means other than clicking on them (by destroying a block it is attached to, or when a gravity-affected block falls onto any non-solid block) can also be picked up.

The player can obtain items using pick block. Unlike Survival, the block selected will appear in the player`s hotbar even if the block is not already in the hotbar or in the survival inventory. If it is in the inventory, then the block will move out of its former slot and replace the block/item in the active hotbar slot, with the size of the stack preserved, If the hotbar is full then the selected block will replace the block/item in the active slot.
Most blocks will give the player a copy of itself when using pick block. Using it on an item frame gives the player the item held inside. Using it on a mob will give the player a spawn egg of that mob.

If you hold Control and press pick block, in addition to obtaining the item, it will also preserve the block`s NBT tags See the NBT file format. For using NBT in commands, see Tutorials/Command NBT Tags. The Named Binary Tag format is used by Minecraft for the various files in which it saves data. , allowing you to place an identical copy of the block.
Unavailable blocks and items
There are several blocks and a couple of items that do not appear in the Creative inventory. They can be obtained with the
/give command, and can be manually placed using
/setblock command, using the IDs provided in the table below. Additionally, using pick block on these blocks will give them, except where noted.

Issues relating to ⃢₀ₜCreative⃢₀ are maintained on the issue tracker. Report issues there.
Creative Mode removes a character`s crafting interface, and replaces it with a menu of all objects, allowing the player to simply drag and drop Blocks/Items into his/her inventory. When an object is placed in the inventory, only one of that block is visible, but that block is actually unlimited. This allows the player to construct anything they want. A player can carry food with them, but it is impossible to eat.
This mode is very similar to Classic, which also gives the player unlimited blocks. The only difference is that Minecraft Classic has fewer available blocks than the current version of creative mode.
If a player destroys the naturally occurring bedrock, they will find the Void. Falling into the void while in Creative Mode is the only way possible to die other than /kill (unless using windows 10). Players also have the ability to fly by double tapping the space (default).
If the player is in Creative Mode, they will have access to commands (unless they choose to disable them), also known as cheats, which allows the player can use by typing in a forward slash (/) followed by the command. Some commands can change the player`s gamemode, change the time, start/stop weather, and give the player large amounts of XP as well as allow the player to teleport to another player if they are playing on a LAN server. The possible commands are listed here.
