Q: Wow, did that take a long time to write?

A: You have no idea... o.0

Q: How do you give items custom names via commands?

A: With the datatag: display:{Name:""}

Enviroment Friendly "Tnt":

Ever want to make a trampoline or something in minecraft, but are bummed out when you HAVE to put water down to prevent the explosion from destroying everything? It only takes two simple steps and your trampoline (or whatever your building)!!! First type in your chat box: /gamerule mobGriefing false. This will prevent mobs from damaging blocks. Can you see where i'm going with this? :3 Now with the NEW /summon command added in 1.7 type in the chat box (or this time in a command block). /summon Creeper {ignited:1,Fuse:-20} TADA!!!!! Good luck with those trampolines (or whatever you build... IDK).

Creating your OWN spawners!!!:

When your playing on survival sometimes (if your lucky) you may come across a dungeon. The loot and mossy cobble are cool and all, but then there is the spawner... the thing that could only be accessed via pick block, commands, or an outside editor. But even when you got it, all you could spawn was pigs... and although that's ok with me because I LOVE DA PIGGIES!!!! sometimes they're needed for adventure maps, and fun stuff n' stuff n' stuff... BUT DID YOU KNOW THAT WITH THE NEW IN-GAME NBT-EDITOR DATABASES AND CRAP YOU CAN MAKE CUSTOM SPAWNERS?!!!! ... yes? well then at least i'll show you how...

Step 1:

To get a basic and default spawner run this command:

/setblock mob_spawner 0

Step 2:

To set a specific entity type on the spawner run this command:

/setblock mob_spawner 0 {EntityId:}

Step 3:

To give the entity certain data (for example armor or effects):

/setblock mob_spawner 0 {EntityId:,SpawnData:{}}

Step 4:

For special spawner data that does not effect the entity itself:

/setblock mob_spawner 0 {EntityId:,RequiredPlayerRange:,MinSpawnDelay:,MaxSpawnDelay:,MaxNearbyEntities:,SpawnCount:}

Just mess around with that and you'll have your spawner :D!!!!

Attributes Tag:

This right here is seriously messing with mobs xD!!! With the attributes tag you can:

  • Set the speed of the mob
  • Set the follow range of the mob
  • Set the health of the mob
Here's how it works:

Since the Attributes thing is a datatag you'll need to learn some of that first... or not.
The main part is the start:


That is there for everything on the attributes you do.
The names are:


Now to test some:

To make something not walk do:


Catching On?

To make something be able to sence others from thousands of blocks away do:


You gotta understand by now...

And finally, to make a mob with 250 hp (like a boss :3) do:
