Greetings, and thank you for viewing my tutorial. If you have ever played an adventure map, you've probably noticed that sometimes there is talking between the player and other characters in the adventure. If you've ever wondered how to do this, it is quite easy.

Step 1-
use this command to get you the command block, as it is unobtainable through creative inventory, and is not craftable. /give 137


Step 2-

Copy your command block with the pick block (page scroller on your mouse) and give yourself one block for each speaker. Then, use an anvil to rename each one like this:


Step 3-

Set up your redstone input. I like doing a pressure plate with a redstone dust underneath and the first speaker's command block next to the dust like this (w/ the command block instead of repeaters, sorry :P):


Step 4-

To make your characters speak, you must use this command in the command block: /say Like this:


Step 5-

Remember that redstone goes through solid blocks like command blocks, so you can wire it up like this, even around corners. Also, remember that 5 redstone repeaters set to 4 ticks on each=4 seconds of delay, so if you're filling up an entire line of text, you'll probably want 10 or so repeaters set to 4 ticks, and if there are too many, you can always take some out, but it's harder to put more in.


Thank you, if you liked it please diamond or subscribe.

This isn't working for me. I am trying to make a horror map called "Baby" (which I plan to release to the public by the end of summer) and I need conversations for it, but it's only showing the very first person talking. Does it have to stay on the surface for this to work, or can I dig a hole in the ground to put them in. Please help!

So is there any possible way to color this text like /tellraw? I want the 'name' but I also want to add color.

this was really helpful...
I was also wondering if you knew how to have the person on the adventure map for example speak in the text as if replying to the speaker?
(sorry if this doesn't make any sense.)
