How do I move my spawn point?

  • I am spawning too far from my home. How do I move my spawn point?

    In Survival MP, use /sethome

    In Notch's March 28 blog post he says next update will include spawn change.

    In Minecraft Beta 1.4 and later, sleeping in a bed will set your spawn point.

    On older SMP servers running Minecraft Beta 1.3, spawn points can be changed using the /setspawn command, provided the server is running any of the common mods to provide this functionality. Sometimes this command is called /sethome, and sometimes the /sethome command has a different purpose.

    There is no way to set the spawn point ingame on Single Player Minecraft Alpha/Beta < 1.4. Some third party tools will change it for you however.

    For Minecraft Classic, pressing Enter sets the spawn point.

    Good find, that twitter post.

    As 1.4 is now out, the changelog confirms this: " Sleeping in a bed now resets your spawn position" (also added to my answer, below)
