First introduced

Java Edition 1.7.2 (13w43a)
PE Alpha 0.16.0 (PE Alpha 0.16.0 build 1)

Sets the world spawn.

  • Java Edition
setworldspawn <x> <y> <z>
  • Bedrock Edition
setworldspawn [spawnPoint: x y z]
x y z (BE: spawnPoint: x y z) (optional)
Specifies the coordinates of the world spawn. x and z must be within the range -30,000,000 to 30,000,000 (inclusive). y must be between 0 and 256 (inclusive). May use tilde notation to specify coordinates relative to the command's execution. If not specified, defaults to the position of the command's execution. Not optional in command blocks.
If the server is not in adventure mode, players always spawn on the topmost block near (x,z) — y is effectively ignored. If the server is in adventure mode, then the new spawnpoint is exactly at the given coordinates, including the y coordinate (even if underground and even if there isn't a block there) — if the y level given does not have space for the player then the spawnpoint moves up on the y axis until it does, at most y level 256.
Although spawn chunks are usually kept loaded at all times, new spawn chunks are not loaded by this command until a player moves within range. Compasses (which in Minecraft point to the world spawn rather than north) do not update to the change until the world is reloaded.
Fails if the arguments are not specified correctly.
On success, sets the world spawn to the specified coordinate.
Normal spawn spreading still applies, can be set with a gamerule.
