In all of my worlds, whenever I do /time set night it doesn't work, and instead stays daytime. Also once the game reaches the point were it would turn to night it goes back to the start of a day. So I have no way of making it night time. I have the same problem with the /weather rain command, whenever I enter this the weather stays clear. Also when I enter a command like /time set night it says set time to 13000 but as I said it stays daytime

  • Have you got any command blocks on a timer to make sure it stays day, or to make sure it doesn't rain? And for the /weather rain one, is your world superflat because for me weather does not work in superflat worlds.

If you have optifine, this answer is for you.

I was looking through the Minecraft menu, and I figured it out. Here are the steps to fix it.

  1. Go to the Game Menu
  2. Select Options
  3. Go to Video Settings
  4. Select Other
  5. Turn Weather to on, and time to Default.

    Why there are two downvotes? In the question there was no details about the conditions. And in my case this answer worked. Thanks @Sam

If you're playing Vanilla Minecraft (not a server or modded), you will need to do /time set <number> and for weather it's /toggledownfall.
