Minecraft Bedrock Commands: a Comprehensive Guide.

“Can_Place_On” and “Can_Destroy” Parameters.

To begin this blog, let’s just get this one thing straight: this blog is on bedrock commands. There is a difference between Bedrock and Java commands. The first big difference is that Bedrock is better. I’m sorry to you java lovers. Have a chat with me sometime. I do agree with you in some things, but that’s not the point of this blog. Anyway, the difference between Bedrock and Java is that Java’s commands are more complicated, and more useful. Bedrock has relatively easy commands, but not a lot of them. They do not have the same command syntaxes or parameters.

For this first “episode” of the blog, I’d like to focus on a command that I struggled with for years, and that I only just figured out how to do a week ago. I figure I could help a lot of you with it. That is the “can place” parameter.

This is extremely useful for map-makers. It allows you to give a player an item that can only destroy certain blocks, or a block that can only be placed on certain other blocks. We’ll start with the item. Here it is with the “give” command:

/give @a iron_pickaxe 1 0 {”minecraft:can_destroy”:{“blocks”:[”stone”]}}

If this doesn’t work, check that you have all the quotations, brackets, and colons.

You can change the item (iron pickaxe is used here), or what it destroys. You can even have it break more than one block (just separate the blocks with a comma). Now, we’ll do the one for blocks.

/give @a cobblestone 5 0 {“minecraft:can_place_on”:{“blocks”:[“stone”]}}

This will give you five cobblestone blocks that can be placed on stone. These are only for Adventure maps, because you can break and place anything in Creative and Survival mode. However, they are VERY useful in Adventure maps. It will allow someone to place or break blocks in your map, without allowing them to destroy your whole map. If you ever wondered how pro map-makers do it for the marketplace, this is how.

So I hope this helped you out! Maybe you already knew this, maybe not. If not, I hope you can make an awesome Adventure Map for Planet Minecraft. If so, tell me. I’d honestly love to see it.

I will be making more blogs on commands, each one will go pretty in-depth, and hopefully help you guys (and me; it helps commit these darn things to my memory).

Thanks for reading! Go make a cool map!

I sorta want this to be a weekly blog, but I don't know how long I can keep that up. I might do a monthly blog.
Also, I was featured on the front page for approx 9 hours. I went to get my family, and when I came back, it wasn't there. *Slaps Face*
But thanks again for the support!
