How to set it to day in Minecraft


To make it day in Minecraft, follow these three simple steps:
  1. Open the Chat Bar - Press "T" to open chat when using Minecraft Java Edition. Press the chat icon at the top of your in-game screen for Minecraft Pocket Edition.
  2. Opening chat on Minecraft Java Edition
  3. Type the Minecraft set time command - With the Minecraft chat bar open, type /time set day to set the time to day. Alternatively, you can use /time set noon, which will set the time to 12 pm, or /time set night, which will change the time in Minecraft to night, or 8 pm. If you are on Minecraft Bedrock Edition, you can even use the command /time set sunset or /time set sunrise!

You can use /time set {value} to change the time of day in Minecraft to a specific time. This value can be any number between 0 and 24000, representing in-game ticks. Typing /time set 0 will set the time of day to 6 am, whereas /time set 18000 would be midnight. For a complete list of time-to-tick conversions, see the table below.

What to do if you get "unknown or incomplete command, see below for error" in Minecraft


If you get this error while trying to change the time of day in Minecraft, then you are probably playing in a world with cheats disabled. In order to use the /time set day command, your world must have cheats enabled.

Already created a world without cheats? No need to worry! Follow this tutorial which explains how to enable cheats in your Minecraft world without creating a new world:


How to change the time of day on any Minecraft Server with the Minecraft Time Changer mod


Minecraft servers can be particularly annoying to play on since, under normal conditions, players must all be sleeping in beds to change the time of day. Doing this on servers without the aid of special plugins is a great challenge.

So how can you change the time of day on any Minecraft server without needing command permissions? The answer is the Minecraft Time Changer mod. This free-to-use mod allows Minecraft players to change their time of day.

How to install the Minecraft Time Changer Mod


The easiest way to install and start using the Time Changer mod in Minecraft is to use a Minecraft Client, such as Badlion Client or Lunar Client. However, since Badlion Client features, on average more FPS, we highly recommend using it to install and use the Time Changer mod in Minecraft. To do this, follow the steps below!

#1 Download a client/mod pack containing the Minecraft Time Changer Mod
To do this, we recommend downloading the Badlion Client. Once downloaded, follow the installation prompt, after which you should see the Badlion Client launcher on your desktop.

#2 Launch your desired Minecraft Version
Click on the Badlion Client icon to open the Minecraft launcher, then select your desired version of Minecraft. Press launch and Minecraft will start up!

Selecting a Minecraft version

How to use the Minecraft Time Changer mod


To use the Time Changer to change time in Minecraft, click on the Time Changer mod in the mod menu. This will open its settings, where you will find a slider for "Day." Adjusting this slider allows you to adjust the time of day in Minecraft.

Using the Time Changer mod in Minecraft
In addition, you can freeze or stop Minecraft's day/night cycle and even change the Overworld sky type to either the Nether or The End.

The major benefit of using the Minecraft Time Changer mod is that it will work on any server, even if you do not have command permissions. The only downside is that the mod changes the time of day from your perspective, not the actual time of day in the world. This means that monsters can still spawn if you have the Time Changer set to day.

With that said, this mod has numerous benefits, so head over to the Badlion Client Download page to download the Minecraft Time Changer mod today and play Minecraft like never before!
