Today I entered the Debug world type for Minecraft to check out all the new blocks in 1.9. Oddly enough I found an interesting block I had never seen before even after experimenting with 1.9. They looked odd and had letters on them like this:enter image description here

What are these lettered blocks, and can I attain them?

  • Never heard of a debug mode world. How can I enter it? – angussidney Mar 15 '16 at 6:10
  • @angussidney seems like ANOTHER good question. I thought that we ran out of good minecraft questions. – Ave Mar 15 '16 at 6:10
  • @angussidney, click "create new world" go to "more world options" Hold shift on "world type" and click it five times starting at default. Lol, answering a question on a question. – Jason_ Mar 15 '16 at 6:19
  • That's the one! – Jason_ Mar 15 '16 at 6:29

They were used to test end structures, S stands for Save, L stands for Load, C stands for Corner, D stands for Data, but you can't obtain them. However, you can place them in a world with cheats are enabled by using the command /setblock x y z structure_block. A good reason to use them is the fact that they emit 15 light (as bright as sun) and their toughness is very high.

You can see the Wiki Post here.

  • I've read that they can save / load structures but can't verify atm. – Ave Mar 15 '16 at 6:20
