Introduction: Minecraft Time Machine!!!

Have you ever wanted to be a time traveler in Minecraft, but known it was impossible? Well, now you can!

Step 1: Get a Command Block

Type /give @p command_block and press enter. A command block will appear in your inventory!

Step 2: Make It Do Something

Right-click the Command Block and type time add 20000 and click done. You could also type time subtract 20000, but remember, you can't have both at once. It will only work if you have one or the other.

Step 3: Make It Look Cool

Place 4 blocks of your choice (I used obsidian) around the command block, as shown. Place 1 stair block on one of the blocks (not the command block) and place a blank sign on both sides to make a chair. Place a 2-block high tower on the side opposite of the chair. Place an item frame with a clock in it on the top block of your tower. Place a carpet of your choice on the command block, and make sure to sneak when you do this or it won't work. Finally, place a power source (button, lever, etc.) on one of the 2 remaining blocks and you're done!

Step 4: Have Fun!

Use your time machine to travel through time!!! As you can see, it really works! Have fun!!! I'm in the First Time Author contest, so vote for me!PEACE OUT!!!

    Hey everybody, I know this post is several years old, but I need to add something that should’ve been here in the first place: credit where it’s due. I learned how to make this from YouTuber ACtennisAC in this video: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=iZeKHcXrjWc&t=2s

    He shows the machine and how it works. I’m so sorry for not doing this earlier.

    Thanks!
    It does work, but not quite in the way you’d expect. What it really does is change the time of day using the “time set” command. The number you put in is actually a time.
    So it can’t visit the past or future, but you can skip to any point in the day you want!

    Hey Acf201! To answer your questions, yes it does work in creative mode and no, unfortunately it can not bring back any dead creatures. What it actually does is change the time of day, it doesn’t reverse events that have already happened. So if you’ve lost something, this won’t help.

    You could create a series of commands to place blocks... but that's a lot of effort xD

    I've actually used this to build the TARDIS a few times. I'm considering doing that next!

    This is cool. Does it really work? The only thing that says the time are your screen shots. Good luck in the contest!
