Flying is activated by pressing the Spacebar twice in Creative Mode. It can be used for flying up steep slopes, moving around the world quickly, or if activated within the first 2.5 seconds of falling into The Void, it can stop the player from being killed by Void Damage.
By default, Shift will make you descend, Spacebar will make you rise. The basic W, A, S, D buttons are used to move. Tapping spacebar again twice will initiate gravity once more. Alternatively, the player can just fly downwards until they touch the ground. But thats kind of boring, now isn't it?
In Pocket Edition, tap the jump button (o) twice to enter fly mode. Use ^ to go forward, < to go left, > for right, and v for backwards. Press jump and ^ to fly upwards, and jump and v to go downwards.To exit flying mode, double-press jump again.
- Before 1.4.4, if you were in Creative Mode and you changed to Survival Mode while flying, you would die no matter how high you are.
- In the Pocket Edition, it is possible to fly inside The Void in Creative Mode. Simply dig all the way to The Void and right after you fall in, double tap the jump button to fly. This will allow you to fly in The Void.
