Fly to Minecraft in creative mode
If you are playing Minecraft in creative mode , you can fly at any time by pressing the jump button twice . During the flight, your avatar will move faster than when walking on the ground. The speed increase is approximately 250% with respect to the movement on the ground.
While in flight, you can move using the same keys that you use for ground movement and using the camera controls to guide the movement in various directions. To go up in altitude, just hold down the jump control , while to go down in altitude just press the control to crouch .
Also, when you fly, you can increase your speed by an additional 200% by holding the control for running. However, if you press the jump button twice in succession, the flight will be canceled and you will fall to the ground (without too many consequences, since in the creative mode you do not receive any damage).
Fly on Minecraft in survival mode
During the game sessions on Minecraft in survival mode , it is not possible to fly without the use of some gimmicks. In the next few lines, I’ll show you some methods that can help you perform this action.
The easiest way to fly in survival mode is to use the command console . First, you need to make sure that you have enabled this feature, without which you will not be able to enter the command I will tell you about shortly.
If you are playing Minecraft on your computer, you can enable the command console in an already created session by pressing the Esc key on the keyboard and pressing the Open in LAN button . In the screen that is shown to you, press then on the item Commands , so as to change the wording to Yes , then confirm the change, pressing the Start the world in LAN button, and you’re done.
The above method allows you to temporarily enable the command console during the current game session. However, you can enable this tool from the beginning in a new game, so that it is permanently active. To do this, in the Minecraft main menu, click on the Single Player button and press on Create a new world .
Now, type the name of the world and press the Other options of the world button, pressing the Commands button to change the wording to Yes . You just have to press the Done button and Create a new world . During the game, the command console can be used by pressing the T key on the keyboard.
If you play Minecraft on your smartphone or tablet, in the main menu, tap on Play and select the items Create new > Random generation . At this point, scroll the screen and identify the item Activate the tricks , moving the lever next to ON . Then click on the Continue button and then on Create , to start a new game.
On a game already created, however, if you have not followed the above steps, you can enable the command console by returning to the main screen of the game and pressing the Play button . Then locate the world you created and press the icon with the pencil symbol that you find next to it. Then follow the instructions I indicated in the previous lines to activate the tricks.
During any game, the command console can be reached by pressing the icon with the symbol of a speech bubble , located at the top.
After enabling the command console, open the chat and type the command / gamemode creative @p which will allow you to change the game from survival to creative mode. You can therefore refer to what is indicated in this paragraph on what are the commands to enable flight. You can return to survival mode at any time by typing the command / gamemode survival @p .
In addition to the method indicated above, there is the possibility of using an object called Elitre , which consists of a set of wings that allows your avatar to glide after launching from an elevated position. In survival mode it is not easy to find this object, as you can collect it inside the trunks that you find in the End City .
Don’t you know what End City is? It is a city located in the End . It is a size similar to the Nether , but it represents the final arrival point of each player, as the challenge and difficulty levels are very high. The End is formed by a central island protected by a dragon which, after eliminating it, generates portals to reach the external islands. On these is the End City, a dangerous place but which contains several treasures, such as the Elitre .
Once you get this item, you just have to equip it and drop your avatar from an elevated position. Immediately after launching, you must press the jump button to activate the wings to glide. During this phase, you can press the movement keys in conjunction with the camera controls to change the flight direction. If you use the Elitre in combination with the pyrotechnic rockets , you can take altitude and fly faster.
Mod to fly on Minecraft
If, on the other hand, you prefer to expand your gaming experience through the use of mods, there are some that I can recommend for flying on Minecraft .
The first one I recommend is The Flying Things , which allows you to use flying carpets and magic brooms to move freely in flight. To use it, you need Minecraft Forge , a famous tool that allows you to manage Minecraft mods. If you want to know how to install and use it, I recommend you read my guide dedicated to the topic.
In creative mode, items to fly can be found on the inventory tab; in survival mode, however, a Phial of Animation (object of the mod) that can be found in the trunks, as an essential component for their creation, is required. In addition, for flying carpets you also need the sand blocks of souls , available only in the Nether, and normal carpets that can be made with wool. For magic brooms, on the other hand, lapis lazuli , fir wood , cords and wheat are also needed .
After equipping the broom or carpet, by pressing the right mouse button, your avatar will go up on these objects. It will be possible to display two bars on the screen: one indicates the current speed which will be reduced when the energy , indicated by the second bar, is at zero.
There are other mods for flying on Minecraft. I suggest you get to the official Web site of CurseForge and type fly in the internal search engine to see all those that may be for you.
