I'm on a server that is about to install borderlands, however, currently, they do not want us to pass 3000 squares...

I heard that F3 is the button to access coords, however, this doesn't work on a mac as F3 is also set to a function that brings up all your open screens. Any Mac users out there that know the answer?

I was trying to figure out the same thing so I was just messing around my macbook and pressing down f3 and fn ( the button next to control) at the same time is what does it I think. It says x,y coordinates so that's gotta be it.

Yes, holding down the "fn" key then pressing "f3" will do the trick. :(

If this is a nuisance I believe there is an option in preferences to use the function keys as regular keys (so you don't have to use "fn"). A Mac user please correct me if I'm wrong though, I primarily use Windows.

A trick to keep that stuff on the screen is to bring up your inventory, hold "fn" and "f3", click into another window, release "fn" and "f3", and return to Minecraft. This way you don't have to keep checking your coordinates.

Hope this helped!

hello my name is adam but my in game name is hockey_boy_87 i am age 15 but i am very mature for my age, i feel that i would be a great admin because i am very helpful and i have been playing minecraft for about a year and a bit now, i am using a mac so if someone dosnt know how to use a mac for minecraft i could easily help (playing minecraft on a mac is much more difficult the mouse with one button and such) i am very calm and friendly and i don't hold grudges to anyone i have never been an admin before but i have been mods and such (there is a first for everything) i am a very good builder as well so if you would like me to make a large nice spawn i can. signed hockey_boy_87
