What are Commands?

Used to control your world or talk to players

Commands are features you can use to control your world and the entities within. These Commands are very useful for when you want to test things out or want to make the game easier. However, we don't recommend using Commands while playing in Survival Mode, as these will trivialize the game and upset the game balance.
