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

  • We need more information, i.e. logfiles, minecraft version, etc.

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

Hmm... I have one idea for both of them, 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. I hope this helps,

  • don't worry, this site can be a bit complicated at first. I suggest you check out the tour and maybe the help center, they've got you covered. You should be able to delete this answer as well, and I think you get the rep loss refunded.
