I want to know what are the gamerule commands in Minecraft, and what do they do? Please help as I want to have special stuff without using mods and plugins!

I believe this is far too broad to be properly answered. What, exactly, are you attempting to achieve? –  Frank Dec 31 '12 at 2:23
Vanilla Minecraft does not have many commands. Link –  Cresh Dec 31 '12 at 2:28
You can find the /gamerule commands on the Minecraft Wiki using the link provided by Cresh. Alternatively, the Command Block page has the gamerules formatted nicely in a table. –  Schism Dec 31 '12 at 2:37

On the Command and Command Block page on the Minecraft Wiki, there are lists and tables describing the /gamerule command.

  • commandBlockOutput - Whether command blocks should notify admins when they perform commands.
  • doFireTick - Whether fire should spread.
  • doMobLoot - Whether mobs should drop items.
  • doMobSpawning - Whether mobs should naturally spawn.
  • doTileDrops - Whether blocks should have drops.
  • keepInventory - Whether the player should keep items in their inventory if they die.
  • mobGriefing - Whether creepers, endermen, ghasts, and withers should be able to change blocks.
  • doDaylightCycle - Toggles the day-night cycle (the sun stops moving and stays where it is) (added in 1.6.1)
  • naturalRegeneration - Toggles natural health regeneration (Ibid)

In Minecraft, you can type /gamerule Tab and keep pressing Tab to iterate through all (if no hidden ones) available game rules. When the rule you want appears, just press Space and input either true or false.

I believe the rule name itself is already quite self-explanatory, if not you can refer to the list above or the Minecraft Wiki or try them yourself.

Thanks! I agree most is pretty self-explanatory, but came here for the naturalRegeneration one myself. Guess that means you'll only heal through potions and such. –  Svish Sep 9 '14 at 16:35
