(WARNING:MAY MAKE YOU LAGG LIKE A BAWS!)
Hey everybody! I'm back with my first blog in a while so let's jump right in!
But first...
How to get a command block!

1.7
/give (Your Username) 137

1.8
/give (Your Username) minecraft:command_block

SIMPLE TRICKS (STARTERS)
HOW TO GET A MOB TO RIDE ANOTHER MOB!

IT'S SIMPLE!
First you need to know how to spawn a mob first. Use this command!
/summon Cow*

*Can be switched out for any mob/please refer to mob spawners section for more details.

Now to make the Cow be ridden, just do this!

/summon Cow ~ ~ ~  (Riding,id:Cow)

BOOM!

Fixed by Stikbro.



MORE ADVANCED!


CUSTOM PLAYER HEADS
Ever wanted a replica of you head in minecraft? Well it's simple! Just type in this command!
/give* minecraft:skull 1 3 {SkullOwner:
*If this was me, the command would look like this...

1.7
/give DARKDUELIST 397 1 3 {SkullOwner:DARKDUELIST}

1.8
/give DARKDUELIST minecraft:skull 1 3 {SkullOwner:DARKDUELIST}

Yeyyeh!

CUSTOM MOB SPAWNERS!
Ever wanted to make a mob arena but never had the spawners? Now it's simple using the setblock command!

/setblock ~ ~1 ~* minecraft:mob_spawner 0 replace {EntityId:Zombie*}

~*= These correspond to the coordinates. This command simple spawns the spawner on top of the command block.
Zombie*= This can be interchanged with any "Summonable" thing. Type /summon in your chat bar then hit tab for the full list of entitys.

BONUS:SKELETON RIDING A SKELETON HORSE!

Yea you read right. You might have heard about the zombie and skeleton horses that were secretly hidden when 1.6 came out... But now you can summon them!

Just do this!
/summon EntityHorse {Type:4}

*Note You CANNOT ride these horses. I believe (AKA not tested) that you can ride them in 1.7.4 or lower. If I'm wrong comment and tell me :)

Boom Simple!

Want an armoured Skeleton with diamond armour riding the horse?
well this is is so big I had to look it up and then copy paste it :P

Here it is...

/summon Skeleton ~ ~1 ~ {Equipment:[{id:261},{id:313},{id:312},{

­id:311},{id:310}],CustomNameVisible:1,Cu­stomName:"Goku",Riding:{id:"EntityHorse",Type:4,Ta­me:1,CustomNameVisible:1,CustomName:"Kei­th"}}

whew
BONUS BONUS: FASTEST REDSTONE CURRENT (CLOCK) EVER!
EVER WANTED TO MAKE SOMETHING LIKE A DISPENSER SHOOT REALLY FAST LIKE A MACHINE GUN? EVER WANTED TO OUTMATCH THENOOCHM'S CLUSTERBOMB? WELL NOW YOU CAN WITH THE FASTEST REDSTONE CURRENT POSSIBLE!

Simplely type this in!
/setblock ~0 ~0 ~1 minecraft:redstone_block 0 destroy
Bam!

Now after you type in the command, place a redstone block right next to the command block. If it simply spawns another block on the other side it's ok...don't freak out. Just swap places and place your block where that one spawned! Then it should go bananas! it should look like it's constantly being broken. Now just hook something up to it and bam! You are now officially awesome!

Added!!!!!
If the redstone blocks dropping make you hurt inside, just do

/gamerule doTiledrops false

now it won't drop blocks anymore

(W
ARNING:MAY MAKE YOU LAGG LIKE A BAWS!)




Well that's all for now! Thanks for reading! Favorite, diamond and subscribe if you enjoyed!

bye!

Ps...

type in this for a surprise!

/summon PrimedTnt ~ ~1 ~ {Fuse:120,Riding:{id:"Cow",CustomName:"B

­ooom Cow"}}


When I started PMC, I never thought I would make it this far. When I first joined I saw someone posted a comment on my Herobrine Blog. He was a level 30. I was like "Awwwwwesome! I can't wait till level 30!" Just to find out it takes alittle more work then just 1 blog...

Hey, i dont know if anyone ever looks at this post anymore, but darkduelist, the stack command does not work for me. it says something like, encountered problem, expected '(' as first charecter. or something like that. PLEASE HELP! P.S. i use 1.8, and i copied and pasted your command to a command block.
You can ride the skeleton/zombie horse in 1.8+ :)

Here's the problem.

I have little experience with 1.8 and I can't really help you past 1.7.10

Now I don't know, but can someone tell me if they got rid of the Setblock command? I could have sworn they did something with it.

  • Level 56
  • Grandmaster Baconator
  • July 8, 2014, 8:24 am
Hi darack100...
Ok so you should be able to do this and have it work...

/summon Ghast {CustomNameVisible:1,CustomName:"Test",Riding:
{id:Zombie,CustomNameVisible:1,CustomName:Whatever}}

Ok hope this works! Just Copy Paste That blurb
im not really good at command blocks so does anyone know the command for a invincible wolf so it won't die when i fight creeper?i have seen a command for a invincible cow before :3
  • DXEmaster7
  • Level 3
  • Apprentice Explorer
  • May 21, 2015, 9:05 pm
I think this command will work...?

/summon Wolf ~ ~1 ~ {CollarColor:12,Owner:YOURNAME,Sitting:1,Invulnerable:1}
  • DARKDUELIST
  • Level 56
  • Grandmaster Baconator
  • July 3, 2014, 7:37 pm
NightShadleWolf what's the command for the invincible cow?
/summon Cow ~0 ~0 ~0 {Invulnerable:1}    < this is the command i tryed changeing it to wolf but no luck
  • DARKDUELIST
  • Level 56
  • Grandmaster Baconator
  • July 6, 2014, 4:24 pm
Hmmm... I didn't think that the invulnerable tag was actually real. Anyways If you want an invincible wolf there is a way to do it with potion effects. Now while i cannot think of it off the top of my head I'm confident that if you Google "How to add potion effects to mobs" You should get something back. I would recommend putting the highest level of resitance on him as possible. Hope this helped
  • Arkady
  • Level 46
  • Master Nerd
  • October 5, 2014, 2:18 pm
The invulnerable tag is real, i already tested it.

And NightShadeleWolf this is the command = /summon Wolf ~0 ~0 ~0 {Invulnerable:1}
if this did not work just tell me but it will work because i already tested it.
:o i didnt think about doing that i might just find something ,thanks for your help :)

Need to update -

-Now /give [player] minecraft:command_block

-"/summon Cow (Riding,id:Cow) " is incorrect, should be
   /summon Cow ~ ~ ~ {Riding:{id:Cow}}

-Clock should have second command block on the opposite side spawning air so the redstone block items don't go flying everywhere
  • DARKDUELIST
  • Level 56
  • Grandmaster Baconator
  • May 18, 2014, 6:40 am
First and foremost...
It's not 1.8 yet. You can still use the numbers for /give.

I realize my mistake on  my cow command;I will fix and you will get credit.

You don't have to use another command block to get rid of the dropped redstone blocks. Just do...

/gamerule doTiledrops false

You won't drop blocks anymore. Thank you for your help.

They sometimes take awhile to spawn. While I won't be adding this, there are tons of tutorials out there on how to customise the range of spawning and persistantcy (Is that a word?) of spawns. If my stuff doesn't work I'm sorry. I would check out some other stuff.

Also just check to see if you have mob spawning off.
do /gamerule doMob then hit tab and enter...make sure it is on true.

Hi hotrod747,
I would love to help you but you are being somewhat vague. If you mean the spawners aren't spawning, try something else like a horse or cat. Trust me these do work as I tested them before hand. If you are still having trouble make sure that you aren't in peaceful mode.

oh well it doesnt work on 1.7.5 anyway. Plus the /summon command was implemented in 1.7.4 so 1.3.10  wouldn't yet support it.
Actually /summon was added in 1.7.2
