Survival mode is a game mode (and is the main game mode) in Mine Blocks that requires the player to think ahead while playing. The player will need to make food to avoid hunger, make a house to keep out the monsters, mine materials for later use, and craft tools to get other materials. This game mode also requires players to think smart and effectively. If precautions aren't made, the player may die and lose all of their items!



The main goal in survival mode is to make a successful house, have lots of rare materials, and live in a perfect world. Once they are ready, the player can go to the end and slay the ender dragon, which completes the game. On a higher note you have the ability to create what you want but, you have limited resources.

Survival Tips and Tricks

  • Here is one good trick to creating water. Find a snowy area. Collect as much snow and snow blocks as possible. In the crafting table, put 4 snow balls to get a snow block. Combine 4 snow blocks to get ice! Place the ice and break it to get water.
  • An easier way to create water is to dig 1x1 holes on rainy (not snowy) areas and during the rain they will suddenly be filled with water.
  • Make sure your house is well lit with torches or other means of lighting. Monsters can spawn anywhere as long as there is darkness.
  • Make an adequate house as soon as possible. It doesn't matter if it's made of dirt, wood, or stone, but as soon as the sun goes down, you want a place to stay where monsters can't get to you. Monsters can still spawn in your house if it's not well lit.
  • If you have to, make a hidden hole.
  • Wall off an area of land using simple blocks and torches.
  • If you hate creepers and other monsters switch to peaceful or lonely mode.

1. Get wood from trees. They are essential, because they make wooden planks, which make sticks for tool handles. Bamboo can be substituted for sticks in any recipe.

2. Build a shelter before night. Many monsters spawn during night, so build a well lit shelter. Mobs such as creepers, skeletons, spiders and zombies.

3. Make spare tools to make sure you don't get stuck underground with the creepers!

Turning on survival mode

Starting a game in survival mode requires that the 'Survival' option in the main menu is checked when creating a new world.

Using the "/gamemode survival" changes the mode to survival in a world with commands activated. The player can also type "s" or "0" instead of typing out "survival".
