Smart cursor

Player with Smart Cursor active

The Smart Cursor mode is a keyboard tool used to make digging long distances easier. It is activated by pressing CTRL on the keyboard. Press it again to deactivate. When active, and a digging tool is selected, a yellow box will appear around the closest block in the direction that the player is pointing. Then, simply push the left mouse button and the block will be broken. This feature is a major convenience when breaking blocks.


  • In 1.3, the Smart Cursor will be able to place "stairs" with platforms.

Update Info


  • Added to the game.
