    After logging into Minecraft Build, these items will be found in the hotbar: A clock, an emerald, a head and a crafting table.


    The clock allows players to find and join a map that you have either owner, manager, member or visitor permissions on. To access this GUI outside of the Build lobby, type in /map, or right click the nether star at the ninth slot of the hotbar. To learn more about what each permission is and what it does, check out our wiki subsection here.

    The emerald allows players to create a new map. A new map can't be created if the player has reached the map slot limit! More information about map slots are found in the Ranks section of this page. To access this GUI outside of the Build lobby, type in /create, or right click the nether star at the ninth slot of the hotbar. More information about each map type is found in the Maps section of this page.

    The head allows players to join another player's map. Players will be teleported to other's map by clicking on the head of another online player. Unlike /tp <player>, players get teleported into the spawn of the map the player is in. To access this GUI outside of the Build lobby, right click the nether star at the ninth slot of the hotbar.

    The Book is an expensive guide on what Build is and how it works. The help book is great for ingame tips along with looking up miscellaneous commands. This book can also be accessed by /help

    The crafting table allows players to apply cosmetic elements. This is exclusively for non-server specific VIP+ players. To access this GUI outside of the Build lobby, type in /cosmetics. Aliases include /cosm and /xcosm.


    Ranks in MinecraftBuild allows players to have multiple map slots.

    What are map slots? Players have a limited number of map slots. Map slots are the number of maps a player is able to have in total. If a player has 3 map slots, the player can create 3 maps to fill all the map slots. A player will not be able to create a new map if the limit is met. If the limit is met, simply archive a map or buy new map slots, so a map slot will be opened up, which will allow the players to create a new map.

    Players who use a map on MinecraftBuild to create an accepted map for a gamemode will be given a new map.

    Default Players receive 1 map slot.
    VIP Players receive 2 map slots.
    MVP Players receive 5 map slots.
    ELITE Players receive 10 map slots.
    BUILDER+ Players receive unlimited map slots.

    Ask a JMOD+ to do /listmap to see how many maps you have. Extra map slots can be purchased from the
    Brawl Shop!

    Map Names
    Every map on MinecraftBuild has a name associated with it. Map names can be used to go to a map or find a map. To change a map's name, go to the map, click on the nether star. From there, click on the nametag, and then select "set map name". Type in the new map name into the chat. Only map owners can change their map's name.

    To find out the name of a map, go to the certain map and either type in /mapinfo, or look at the scoreboard/sidebar.

    Creating a Map
    MinecraftBuild uses a map system to allow players to build. Maps are generated with a default size of 512 x 512 blocks and have three options, Void, Flat, and Advanced Flat. Maps can be created using the Emerald in your inventory upon login or by typing in the command. Players can create a map by using the following steps:
    • Connect to MinecraftBuild.
    • Click the emerald in your inventory.
    • Choose either VOID, FLAT, or ADVANCED FLAT.
    • Once teleported to the map, click on the nether star, then on the nametag to set world options.
    This can also be done via command:
    • /create [void/flat/advancedflat]
    Void: Creates a map with no blocks in it other than a glass block at the spawnpoint. Don't worry if you accidentally break the glass! You can always do //up 0, //fill <block> <size> or other WE commands to create platforms you can build on.

    Flat: Creates a flat map with a layer of grass, 62 layers of dirt underneath the grass, and a layer of bedrock underneath the dirt, to mark the build limit.

    Advanced Flat: Creates a customisable flat world, where the amount of layers of the map, and the blocks for each layer can be adjusted.

    Deleting a Map
    Maps can be deleted by typing in /archive twice. Only owners of the map is able to perform this command. Archiving the map makes it so that no one can edit the map anymore. Archived maps do not count towards the map slots limit. Be careful, because once the map is archived, it can't be undone.

    Accessing Your Maps

    To access the maps that players have permissions on, either click on the clock upon logging in, or type in /map.

    Another method is to type in /map <id>. This can direct players to public maps, or private maps if the players have at least a visitor perm on it, with the id that is typed in. However, it is impossible to access private maps if the player has no perm on it, or maps that the player is banned in.


    The Map GUI
    • A GUI with 5 items will appear. Each of these items represents a perm.
    • Emerald represents Owner
    • Diamond represents Manager
    • Gold represents Member
    • Iron represents Helper
    • Coal represents Visitor
    • The number of items represents the number of maps a player has a given perm on. For example, the player in this screenshot has 64 maps with the Owner permission.
    • Click on one of the items to see all the maps you have an owner/manager/member/visitor perm on.
    Build Menu

    When in a map, a nether star will be in the 9th slot of the hotbar, named Build Menu. What this tool does is allows players to control certain features on their maps, and/or access the options found when in the Build lobby.


    When the Build Menu is clicked, the following GUI will pop up:


    • The wooden door on the left, simply takes the player back to the Build lobby.
    • The player head allows players to use the "Join a Player" feature.
    • The emerald creates a new map.
    • The clock allows you to view all maps that the player has a perm on.
    • And finally the nametag, allows players to change the current map's settings. When you click on it, a different GUI will pop up:


    • The repeater at the top, will show the previous GUI.
    • The name-tag allows map owners to change the name of the map.
    • The player head, allows the player to view who has permissions on the map.
    • The clock allows the player to change the time of your map.
    • The water bucket allows the player to change the weather of your map.
    • The end portal allows the player to manage the warps of your map.
    • The painting allows the player to upload a resource pack that users will be prompted to download when they join the map.
    • The map item will enable map owners to choose the icon their map will show up as in the /map menu.
    • The bed allows the player to change the spawn point of your map. Note that when you spawn on a map you will always be facing South.
    • The dye, allows map owners to control if your map is private or not. Green is public, gray is private.
    • The iron sword allows pvp to be enabled. Iron represents pvp is disabled, while diamond represents it is enabled.
    • The oak sapling allows plant growing to be enabled. The dead bush represents plant growing is disabled, while the sapling represents it is enabled.
    • The chest allows players to expand their maps...
    • The ice allows snow/ice melting to be enabled. Pcaked ice represents block melt is disabled, while regular ice represents it is enabled.
    • The tnt allows fire/tnt explosions to be enabled. Both options show a tnt block.
    • Lava bucket allows water/lava flow to be enabled. The empty bucket represents liquid flow is disabled, while the lava bucket represents it is enabled.
