What Is Build Mode In MineCraft Earth?
The following information is based on official site info and the beta test. Contents might change after the official release.
Build Your Own Structures With Build Plates
In order to build your own structures, you need Build Plates. A Build Plate is a piece of land where you can place your own blocks and mobs. You enter Build Mode by tapping the "Build" button below the Build Plate.
Place Blocks & Mobs
Use materials you've collected on Map mode and place them on your Build Plate. Whatever you've placed in your Build Plate will remain there and disappear from your inventory.
Use Pickup Mode To Remove Blocks

You can invite your friends to your Build Plate and construct together. Please note that when you invite people on Build Mode, they can interact with (or destroy) any blocks. When your friends take something from your Build Plate, it becomes his/hers.
