For digging dirt, sand, and other such materials in Discraft, there are many different shovels available, including some that will be familiar to most Minecraft players, and some that are totally out of this world! As a brand new Discraft player, you begin with a wood axe, so you never have to punch wood in Discraft! From there you can collect the materials you'll need to craft a wood shovel. Gathering ever more materials, you'll soon be able to craft other readily recognizable shovels such as the stone shovel, gold shovel, iron shovel, and diamond shovel.
Beyond this point we get into the weird and wonderful! Crafting alone will no longer help you, and you'll need to unlock new tool sets before you can purchase them from the store. Some of these unique shovels will only work in other dimensions, such as the Nether and the End.
To use any shovel for digging, first switch to it with the 1switch command, then use the 1dig or 1d command.
