Adventure mode is similar to survival, however the player is unable to interact with most items and blocks unless provided with special items by map makers. This is good for making maps.


Adventure mode is intended to enhance player-created maps. An adventure map will typically be created by a map maker in creative mode. When the map is finished, the map maker will switch the game to the adventure game mode before sending to players.

Turning on Adventure Mode

Due to the update of 1.29.1, Creating a world with adventure mode is impossible. However with cheats allowed, the player can type the command /gamemode adventure, or /gamemode 2 or even /gamemode a for short.

Blocks and items cannot be placed Adding the canPlaceOn data tag allows the item to be placed near specified blocks.
