Is there a way to turn off animals in creative mode in minecraft? I have world edit installed.

Set the game rule doMobSpawning to false.

/gamerule doMobSpawning false


You don't even need WorldEdit: just type /gamerule doMobSpawning false, and then type kill @e to kill everything that's alive. Once you respawn there will be no animals or mobs left.


You can use the WorldGuard mob-spawning flag:

/region flag __global__ mob-spawning deny

Using: WorldEdit and MV 2.5 b641

    requires worldguard and the region is __global__

  • What is mv? Where do I download it. Without it I get command not found.

  • @AriPorad You'll need WorldGuard for this, not Multiverse.

It turns out I was not playing on peaceful mode, when you do that, all the animals go away.

    Um, animals still spawn on peaceful. Only hostile mobs are removed...

  • @MBraedley, I don't know, but I am playing in creative mode, cheats enabled, peaceful, and not letting it get dark, and no animals.

The following command stops spawning naturally:

/doMobSpawning false

    Does that apply to animals as well, or just enemy mobs?
