I have downloaded a world (a mansion build) online into my Minecraft game. The world I download does not have a daylight cycle. It remains daytime all the time. I have tried to turn this off by doing both gamerule dodaylightcycle false and gamerule dodaylightcycle true. Both haven't worked and it always remains daytime. Is there any way other I can fix this?

  • What happens when you try /time set night? Does it instantly go back to day?

    Which means there is a command somewhere doing /time set day. Your best bet would be this question. Locate the command block and remove it.

By using /gamerule dodaylightcycle true you need to wait some time. You can also change time using /time set 1000 for day and /time set 18000 for night. If none of this work, I really have no idea of what to do.


You can try:

\daylock false

It is a shortcut command to the dodaylightcycle.

  • How do you go to the settings of the world? And what should you change there?

The creator of the map most likely made a command block set to repeat to keep it always daytime as part of the map. Disabling command blocks should do the trick if this is it.
