As with many mods they are only available on PC which means console players will have to grind the traditional way. These can only be utilized in worlds with cheats enabled. This is why you'll be asked when you create a new world or open an individual-player LAN game and select the option to allow Cheats.

With your cheat-enabled environment ready and loaded, all you have to do is enter a few commands now . The first step of pressing the 'C' key to open the command bar.

The command bar is where you'll type the commands, and each one must be prefixed by an forward slash (/). It is also necessary to select the targets you want to receive your cheats. Instead of entering full names, you can utilize these shorthand target selector shortcuts.

- @p = nearest player - @r = random player

@a = all players

- @e = all entities

@s = The entity that executes the command

That's the basics - now you only need to type in your desired cheater's code using the following console commands.
