How do I type specific item codes into console?

#1Sweet00thPosted 8/22/2012 3:47:00 PM
When I look at the lists it says something like 5:4 for an item. If it type that into the console as /give (my name) (5:4) (1) then it won't give me anything. How do I type that item code into the console?

I do believe that the fourth color of wood is 5:3 instead as the first is 5:0. So its 5:0, 5:1, 5:2, 5:3

so "/give (name) 5:3 1" should work.

You only need the first number, before the colon. I don't know what the second number is for...

It says '5:3' is not a valid number.

Easier solution if in single player

Type /gamemode 1 and enter create

When done, type /gamemode 0

Unfortunately,the second value (:3 as it is here)won't work without mods!

3 is the data value. 5 is the item value.
