I like building big buildings in Minecraft, but it's hard to get certain materials—like clay—on some of my maps.

So I'm looking for an inventory editor that works on Mac OS X. I currently use Inside Job, but when I make a new save, it doesn't save a world in the right slot even if the slot is empty.

I can use an online Minecraft inventory editor, but that's generally a slow process and online inventory editors usually don't have everything.

Ben - you should add what platform do you need the editor for. Most of them are for Windows, so if you are on Mac your choice will probably be more limited. –  ChrisF Mar 20 '11 at 15:02

You may want to try TooManyItems, a in-game inventory editor for Minecraft, which is much easier to use than any other inventory-editing software for Minecraft that i've ever used. It is a mod, and requires editing the minecraft.jar file. There are quite a number of tutorials online on how to install, and should be easy enough.

Inside Job has gone through quite a revamp, and should be working better now than in previous versions.

A list if them can be found on the minecraft wiki. I recomend InvEdit because it has a search function and an inbuilt updater. Remember, you cannot edit the inventory of a map that is open.

@ben I wouldn't know, I don't have a mac. Check the forum link. –  Ronan Forman Mar 20 '11 at 10:53

I run Minecraft on Mac OS X, and the inventory editor I use is InvGrid. It's simple, works with 1.3, and is kept updated.

Other features:

  • World variable editing (e.g. time of day)
  • LUA scripting support
  • Ability to define and modify custom items based on ID (i.e. if you're using mods that add new items)

As of MC Version 1.8, Creative Mode was made available as a seperate mode (aside from Survival) within Minecraft. Thus, the user would not have to use external mods in order to customize their inventory. Taken from the wiki:

Creative mode allows players to destroy all blocks instantly and the ability to fly. Players are given an infinite number of blocks to build with and no health bar thus rendering the player immune to all damage. The only possible ways to die are to use the /kill command, or to fall into the Void. Taking advantage of this, players can create large constructions more easily. Creative mode is also often used in mini-sports, such as Spleef.

More information here.

Additionally, as of development version 12w16a, the user, if enabling cheats mode upon world creation, can input commands of various sorts. More information here.

Note, this works both in online AND offline modes. –  lumbricus lubricant Oct 15 '12 at 6:28
