Living/Self-Moving Blocks


Hello there, SargeantJared here!
I was watching one of Sky's videos recently and they mentioned a phrase,
"I think I saw a pack of wild blocks moving west". Or somthing like that.
Anyways, I kinda wanted to see that so I created it. So today I have created
blocks that move on their own. I can't really think of any good uses for this
besides making your friend wonder, "What on earth was that". :D

To make these moving blocks type this in chat:

/summon FallingSand ~ ~3 ~ {TileID:5,Time:1,Riding:{id:Pig,ActiveEffects:[{Id:14,Duration:9999}]}}

Update: Flying Blocks YAY!

To make flying blocks type this in chat:

/summon FallingSand ~ ~3 ~ {TileID:5,Time:1,Riding:{id:Bat,ActiveEffects:[{Id:14,Duration:9999}]}}

To Change the block type from wood to something else,
change "TileID:5" to "TileID:(The new block's id)".

Here is an awesome video featuring these blocks by Endercraft



Thanks for Watching... i mean reading.

They break after about a minute i think it's because falling sand was never intended to ride something.

The bat doesn't work because the block falls and the bat flies away

the one flaw with this is that the blocks only last for like a min, nothing i can really do to fix it :(

Well I'm also saying that the bat doesn't work, because the block will fall and the bat flies out from under it

like the block falls as an item or like a falling sand

hmm... is this a vanilla server, because bukkit servers sometimes prevent mob spawning, it could also be a setting in the config for the server.

also this can be done by command blocks (meaning any other players that don't know about the command block system you built, you can have them push a button and BOOM!

Just a note: if you want to make something move with an ID with more than 1 digit, take off one of the 9's in the invisibility time. Apparently Minecraft has a character limit!
