Hi Guys,

Welcome to the PMC official thread for summon, setblock, blockdata, and other commands. Here you can, ask for help with these, and show of your creations with these commands.

These commands are very powerful, but are also fairly complicated. To get you started, I've included links to helpful pages, and some specific info on the setblock command.

Set Block Structure

/setblock x y z block data method dataTag

x y z are the coordinates of the block
Block is the TileID of the block (includes id:0 now!)
Data is the block data (i.e. 5:1 spruce wood)
Method is one of three things: keep, replace, or delete
-Keep spawns the block at the coordinates.
-Replace replaces the block at the coordinates with the block ID.
-Delete removes the block at the coordinates and then spawns the new one in
dataTag is tile entity data.

Links

Here are some very useful links. Thanks to poltercreeper, Spellguard, Myself, sigurd4, and Deathassassin05, for finding them.

Posting

To post your creations, simply copy and paste the whole text of the command, or commands. Then describe what it does. If it is more complex include instructions, and maybe pictures, of how to use it.

Thanks for reading, and I look forward to seeing some pretty cool custom mobs, and other stuff. :D

I'm not sure that anyone has been able to actually spawn blocks yet..
All I can do is change block meta data (change white wool to black)..

Have you seen anyone actually spawning blocks?

/summon EnderCrystal ~ ~ ~ {Riding:{id:Bat}}
Target practise!

/summon Creeper ~ ~ ~ {ExplosionRadius:100,Fuse:30,Riding:{id:Spider}}
Super creepers riding spiders. (These guys have really big explosions. Use with caution)
Is there any way to add attributes using this?

I was testing this a bit, and the block that spawned disappeared almost immediately. However, I think there might be a way to fix this, as I'm pretty sure it's just part of the blocks data. I'll see what I can do.

i saw sethbling do it by changing the time data to anything over 0
EDIT: You have to do it as a falling sand, it has to be done by a command block, and the time data has to be over 0, hope this helps, also, can someone help me with learning the new nbt data tags, ive never really worked with nbt before, and it lucky I could figure this out
Bro, do you even Command Block?

Well, I just watched SethBling's video, and he clearly demonstrates how to do it.

Well, I am just learning the new techniques too, but do a search on google, you should be able to find it there.

This is a little bit off topic, but can you summon a mob riding an Ender Dragon? I know you can summon jockeys, but can you summon Ender Dragon jockeys? I don't have the 1.7 snapshot, yet, so I can't test it.

/summon PrimedTnt ~ ~ ~ {Fuse:30}

(30 can be any number, of course. Without the fuse data tag, it will explode instantly.)

/summon EyeOfEnderSignal

The eye of ender flies off quickly.

Yeah, I thought it might be the time but wasn't sure how to change it.. Thanks ;)

Does anyone know how to change the Velocity of falling sand entities (either x, y or z) ? I think it has something to do with motion tag, but I'm not sure what to type in the command block..
