The gamemode can be modified ingame, wether you wish a player can be in creative mode or change the gamemode for every players.
1 ) List of different gamemodes
On Minecraft there are many gamemodes, each one having specific settings :
- survival : survival mode, default mode where you need to gather resources, survival to monsters, etc.
- creative : creative mode, like a "godmode" where players can't take damages and can put an infinite amount of blocks (very useful for "build").
- adventure : adventure mode, the players can break blocks only with certain objects, the goal is generally to play on pre-generated maps.
- spectator : spectator mode, simply to observe the game.
2 ) Change the default gamemode
To modifiy the defaut gamemode, go to the panel :
My server -> Configuration
You can choose the desired gamemode with the "gamemode" setting. Restart the server to apply the setting.
Beware : the setting will only apply to the new players joining the server. To forge the gamemode for every players, enable the parameter "force-gamemode" from the panel.
3 ) Change the gamemode for a player only
You can change the gamemode for a particular player. This is very useful for admins that could want to be in creative mode to fly quickly on the server, be in godmode or make specific buildings quickly.
To do so, just enter this command being OP :
/gamemode gamemode nickname
To put a random player call herobrine (^^) in creative mode, enter the command :
/gamemode creative herobrine
If you want to change your own gamemode, you don't need to enter the nickname.
You can also send the command from the panel (without putting the "/" at the beginning of the command).
