Another way to find your home is to switch to Creative mode and fly. From above you will have a much better view and it will be easier to see your house or spot anything that remembers having been there.
First, you need to switch to Creative mode. To do this, open commands and type:
How do you use a compass to find your house in Minecraft?
It’s easy to get lost searching for resources, visiting other villages and escaping mobs when playing Minecraft. If you can’t find your house, a compass can help you find your way back. If you have a compass, this is how you can use it to find your house in Minecraft.
First, you need to place the compass on your Hotbar so that the red arrow on the compass can tell you where to go. Once the compass is in your Hotbar, the red arrow on the compass will point in the direction of the world spawn point.
How to use coordinates in Minecraft
You should know that the place where you spawn is probably not the zero point of the world.
If you’ve never had to read coordinates before, it’s like a graph. The first number seen above is the variable X, a positive value means we are to the right/east of the zero point, while a negative value would mean left/west. Similar for Y, positive means north of it and negative means south of it.
Setting a spawn point
When you first start in a world, single player or multiplayer, you will be assigned a spawn point at a random location. No matter how far you go, when you die you will return to that exact block you started on.
The same will happen to any other player who joins your world. They will spawn in that area and when they die they will respawn there.
How to Get XYZ and Lock Coordinates in Minecraft Java Edition
Unfortunately, there is no built-in setting to display only your coordinates in Minecraft Java Edition like there is for Bedrock. However, it is still very simple to find your current coordinates anytime you need. This is what you should do.
- When in the Minecraft Java game, simply press “F3” on Windows or “FN+F3” on Mac to bring up the “Debug Screen” which is full of all sorts of text information about your world of play.
- Look for the “XYZ:” and “Block” sections. You’ll see your precise coordinates (where your feet rest), like “XYZ: 77.100 / 72.00000 / -205.344”, and the block you’re on, like “Block: 77 72 -206”.
- If you use coordinates for the commands, stop at the block you want the command to use, then check the coordinates of the “Block” (world block location) in the “Debug Screen”. The coordinates of the fragments are also listed, but are not applied.
