My friend and I have a survival world in Minecraft bedrock that we have had for a while, and while I doubt there is, I was just wondering if there was a way to see how in-game days have passed, either in the files or with a mod. Thank you!

enter image description here

I could not find anything when looking it up, other than things for Java Edition.

  • On Java, pick 'Statistics' from the ESC menu, 'Time Played' will give time in in-game days you spent in the world. Not quite 'how much time passed in the world' and I'm not sure Bedrock has a counterpart, so just posting as a comment.

  • Do you play on PC or another kind of device (consoles, smartphones...)? If you have access to the world file, maybe you can open it with an external tool. No idea if that's possible or even if Minecraft actually records the current in-world date...

Disclaimer: This method uses commands, so create a copy of your world and use it there, or else you will no longer receive achievements in your world.

The time query command can be used to check the in-game days that have passed since you created your world. You can also check the number of ticks that have passed since you created your world.


/time query day

Shows the number of in-game days since you created your world. (Each day lasts 20 minutes, 10 minutes of day, 10 of night.)

/time query gametime

Shows the number of ticks since you created your world. (One tick is 1/20 of a second.)

How to create a copy of a world:

  1. Open the setting for your world by pressing the "pencil" button. (You need to leave first) Press the "pencil" button to open the world settings
  2. Click on the Game settings tab.enter image description here
  3. Scroll down to the bottom, and click on the Copy World option. Scroll to the bottom to find the Copy World option, and click it
  4. You should now see the copy of your world in the worlds menu, named: "Copy of Name of your world"
  • If I use /time query day on a copy of my Minecraft world, will it have the same days even if I created a copy months after I created the original world? May 8, 2021 at 14:46
  • Yes, the copy is exactly the same as your original world, except for the name, and the time data will be carried over.

  • Thank you so much! If I do /time query day, it shows 598. Is that the amount of ingame days?
