  • Save toolbars in Creative Mode with Ctrl+1-9/⌘ Cmd+1-9 and load them with ⇧ Shift+1-9.
    • Can save up to 9 toolbars.
    • If you save an empty toolbar, it will clear the bookmarked toolbar and put back the 'informational paper' in the respective slot.


  • Comes in the 16 traditional dye colors
  • Created when Concrete Powder comes into contact with still or flowing water
Concrete Powder
  • Comes in the 16 traditional dye colors
  • Gravity affected (like Sand and Gravel).
  • When it touches water, it turns into a Concrete block.
  • Craftable. Crafting: 4 Sand, 4 Gravel and one of any dye to get 8 Concrete Powder blocks. The recipe is shapeless.
Glazed Terracotta
  • Comes in the 16 traditional dye colors
  • Smelt any colored stained clay in a furnace to obtain the Glazed Terracotta of that color (not for regular hardened clay).
  • Can be placed in 4 directions: North, South, West and East.
    • When placed down while facing the right directions, a repeating pattern can be created. For example, the white terracotta will create the pattern of a sun when 4 are placed down correctly.



  • Materials tab merged with Miscellaneous tab in creative mode.
