To fill blocks in Minecraft using commands, you can use the
/fill command. The fill command allows you to quickly build large structures, replace existing blocks, or destroy blocks in a specified area. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to use the
- Find a spot to build: Choose a flat and open area with plenty of space for your structure.
- Determine the coordinates: You’ll need the XYZ coordinates of two opposite corners of the area you want to fill. To find your current coordinates, press F3 (Java Edition) or use the
/tp ~ ~ ~command (Bedrock Edition) .
- Enter the
/fillfollowed by the XYZ coordinates of the first corner, then the XYZ coordinates of the second corner.
- Specify the block type: After the coordinates, type the block you want to use, such as
minecraft:diamond_block. You can also type “minecraft:” and hit the Tab key to cycle through available blocks or type the first few letters of the block and hit Tab to narrow down the search.
- Consider using optional modifiers: These modifiers can be added after the block type to change the behavior of the
hollow: Makes the inside of the rectangle hollow
replace: Replaces all blocks of one type in the area with another, e.g.,
/fill <set 1> <set 2> minecraft:diamond_block replace minecraft:clay
destroy: Replaces all blocks and drops them as collectible items
Here’s an example of a complete
/fill 100 64 100 110 70 110 minecraft:stone
This command will fill a 10x6x10 area with stone blocks, starting at the coordinates (100, 64, 100) and ending at the coordinates (110, 70, 110).
Keep in mind that the
/fill command can place up to 32,768 blocks at once, and using it excessively may crash your game. Also, the command cannot place blocks in the void or beyond the world limit.
