Early Classic Creative refers to several versions of Classic released from May 16 to May 28, 2009, that succeeded pre-Classic and preceded Multiplayer Test. Creative singleplayer was the only mode available at this time and there were only a limited amount of blocks available in-game.


  • Bedrock
    • Unobtainable to the player.
  • Sand and Gravel
    • Only appear naturally in one block-thick beaches (usually by water or in the middle of a landscape). These beaches were always at and below ocean level.
    • Rather than falling by turning into a falling block entity, sand instantly appears at the lowest point it could go when placed above an air block, without any sort of falling animation.
  • Gold Ore
    • Found in higher elevations, gold ore was often found in exposed surface-level veins.
    • Breaking gold ore did not give the player 1–3 blocks of gold when mined.
  • Iron Ore
    • Spawns in huge veins, sometimes big enough to protrude into 3 caverns, and can have as many as 167 ores.
    • Breaking iron ore did not give the player 1–3 blocks of iron when mined.
  • Coal Ore
    • Does not drop itself when mined.
  • Logs and leaves
    • Spawn as trees found around the map.
World generation
  • An infinite ocean surrounds the map.
  • "Huge" level size.
  • Right click switches between placing and removing blocks.
  • In-game version number at the top left of the screen.
    • Includes FPS (frames per second) and chunk updates.


  • A glitch occurring at this time allowed players to raise the height of a fluid block by placing sand over it. The sand would stay suspended in mid-air until it was broken. When broken, a fluid block corresponding to the type below the sand would appear where the block was. The suspended fluid block would remain immobile until a block was placed next to it, causing a flood.
