Minecraft Server Commands - Using the Give Command

The following article is a concise guide to using the give command within Minecraft

Minecraft is an incredibly enjoyable game to play. If you have played the single player game extensively you may eventually decide to set up your own multiplayer server. This is a great idea as there are many challenges and rewards to playing multiplayer Minecraft that are absent within the single player version. One of the major advantages of multiplayer  Minecraft is that server admins can use server commands to perform a vast range of useful functions. One of the more commonly used commands is the "give" command. This command allows the server admin to give themselves or any other player any resource that is available within Minecraft. Just imagine for a moment what sort of a world you could construct if all resources were limitless? The following is a list of the most commonly used resources within Minecraft.

The numerical code associated with each resource is used with the "give" command. The syntax for using this command is as follows:


T/GIVE PLAYERNAME 49 64


The "T" opens the console for input. The "/" indicates that a server command is being given. "PLAYERNAME" is the name of the player being given the resource. 49 is the numerical code for obsidian, and 64 is the number of obsidian blocks being given to the player. It is important to note that you cannot allocate more than 64 units of any resource. So if somebody wanted 100 blocks of obsidian you would need to allocate this amount with two consecutive "give" commands. 


The "give" command is an incredibly useful tool for server admins. It is a command that you are sure to enjoy using. Have fun.
