Game Mode Switcher

by Quintinity


So, today my little brother decided to make a puzzle map using the new Creative mode. However, after he made his, he released that he couldn't play it in Survival mode. This upset him greatly, so I decided to make a solution and create a program that switches your world's game mode. The program has a nice, simple interface, and it's easy to use. I realise that there probably are in-game mods that do this, however some people don't know how to install mods or they don't feel comfortable using them.
The Clear Inventory option lets you pick whether or not you want to clear your inventory after you switch game modes. Useful if you don't want the infinite items from Creative in your Survival map.

  • Pick which game mode you want and click "Save"
  • Play Minecraft!

Right now nobody has made a in-game mode switcher so if you feel up to the challenge try making a in-game version or try making the program automaticly find all the worlds and put them in a list. But still thnaks for the Prog

I'm not really sure I could make an in-game editor. As for the list of worlds, the reason that I didn't do that was because I was thinking that the world might not actually in the saves folder.

Yours doesn't appear to have been the first.  Someone else had also already come out with one which I believe was also featured on this site awhile ago.

Anyhow, for comparison purposes, here's a link to the other one:

It should run on Windows as a .jar. Try right clicking on it and choosing Open With > Java.

I can confirm that it works on Ubuntu Linux.
Nice app, and it's great that you are using Nimbus Look&Feel, not this ugly default look.
