NBTExplorer

NBTExplorer is a low-level graphical NBT (Named Binary Tag) data editor for Minecraft. With a directory-tree interface for easily exploring multiple worlds, and support for the latest NBT standard, NBTExplorer is built on top of Substrate. Allmost all things in a map in any Minecraft version is build with NBT, so you can usually changethe datas for the newest version without updating NBTExplorer.

Usage[edit | edit source]

NBT tags control every world parameter, such as ender chest items, player's inventory, gamemode, whether the world is Hardcore or not and many other things. NBTEditor can be used to view and change data, with uses including:

Changing level.dat, incluing but not only
  • Locate in-game structures;
  • Add or change items, and adding enchantments;
  • Access or the world seed;
  • Changing gamerules without usage of the /gamerule command;
  • Applying custom formatting to world or server names;
  • Change the world's name;
  • Change the players game mode, health, position and so on. For example, if the player is in an "illegal area" and can't port back with /tp, this function can change the player's position;
  • Change the settings for terrian generation, while it doesn't affect the generated chunks;
