In Minecraft, the tick rate is measured in either ticks per second or milliseconds per tick. The default value for Minecraft is 20 ticks per second (TPS) and 50ms per tick – which results in a reality of 60 frames-per-second (FPS). This means that all actions happen at this speed regardless of whether it’s chopping down trees with an axe or mining ores with a pickaxe. 

If you’re looking to make your gameplay smoother and more responsive then it might be worth setting Minecraft’s TPS higher than 20, but have in mind that changing your Minecraft tick rate could potentially cause an issue with reverting back to default settings in future updates.

How To Change The Tick Speed In Minecraft?

The only way to increase the random tick speed in Minecraft is by enabling the cheats. Once the cheats are enabled, you need to enter the following Minecraft tick speed command:

/gamerule randomTickSpeed 40

By using this example command, we have increased the randomTickSpeed to 40. Instead of 40, you can put any number until 255.

Increasing the tick speed will increase random ticks, and it’s useful if you want, for example, the plants to grow fast.

However, as a consequence, they might decay faster if you enter a too high number.

  • Remember, the default value for Tick Speed is 20.
  • If you put 0, it will disable the random ticks altogether.
