How do you harvest carrots in creative mode?
I'm playing creative mode (Java edition, Windows 10) and can't for the life of me seem to figure out how to harvest carrots. I've planted them and they've grown to the point that a little bit of orange is sticking out. They're not growing any further, so I'm pretty sure they're ready to be picked.
Right-clicking does nothing. If I left-click, it just smashes the carrots together with the soil underneath. Or is it that carrot patches don't always yield carrots?
You can. But it isn't as easy as survival mode. As UnionHawk said clicking on the crop block will destroy it in creative mode. Instead, you can use flowing water to break the crops. Likewise, you can use pistons to push the crops which will also break the crop block and allow the food to be collected.
Not all foods can be harvested using these methods. For instance, pumpkins and melons are not affected by flowing water. For the purpose of harvesting carrots this should not be an issue, however.
While you cannot harvest by hand, there are other ways to collect your crops.
