I want to give myself a filled_map with data value 0, i.e. the very first map I would have ever generated.

I have tried:

/give @p minecraft:filled_map:0

which outputs the error: There is no such item with name minecraft:filled_map:0.

I have also tried:

/give @p minecraft:filled_map 1 0

Which I'm assuming used to work in earlier versions of the game because of this other question.

However, that command just gives me the next map in sequence (so if I am currently at the map with ID #0358/16 it would give me the map with id #0358/17, not the #0358/0 which I want.)

Please, I need to know how to fix this. Maybe there is an attribute I can set in the data tag? I.e.

/give @p minecraft:filled_map 1 0 {mapNumber:0}

But I do not know if such a thing exists.

  • The second one should have worked, but maybe the first map is 1, I'm not certain

  • I tried with 1 as well, same problem (it gives me the next map in sequence)

  • @Unionhawk I think the first map is 0 though

Hah hah! I figured it out.

Turns out, I'd been messing around too much; this command is the one which works:

/give @p minecraft:filled_map 1 0

The problem is (was) I had deleted map_0.dat from my data folder; I had wanted to replace it with another image, so I thought I should delete it to re-generate it afresh, however the way I should have gone about it was just placing my custom map files into the folder before trying to generate them.
