No mods or resourcepacks were used to make this project.

I want to show everyone the possibilities of armorstands and playerheads. The worldsave includes all the custom objects as shown in the first picture. It also has one example with commandblocks so you can see how a casinotable is made. This is all made in vanilla minecraft, it does not require any mod or resourcepack.

If you created a cool custom object using armorstands and playerheads let me know! I'm curious what other people can make with this.

You can use the objects in this project for your project, but please link it to this page or give me credit!

Some useful links:


For this tutorial I will use a pizzabox head(command) from heads.freshcoal.com:

/give @p skull 1 3 {display:{Name:"Pizzabox"},SkullOwner:{Id:"9cc39003-9d47-423d-9097-131bbbf51f6c",Properties:{textures:[{Value:"eyJ0ZXh0dXJlcyI6eyJTS0lOIjp7InVybCI6Imh0dHA6Ly90ZXh0dXJlcy5taW5lY3JhZnQubmV0L3RleHR1cmUvOTk1ZjM5NWUyZDk3ZjhjOTEzMzhjNWM1NTMyYWQ0ZDY3YTcyODQ1Mjg1ZDhiYzE1MmUxYzVkNjA0ZDllYyJ9fX0="}]}}}

We are going to use the bold part later. To start we need to place a commandblock with a (double)slab or stair on the south side of this commandblock and a button to the other side of the commandblock (see picture below). You need to use slabs,stairs or glass since the other blocks won't let light trough and will give us a black head.

Then we need to combine our command from heads.freshcoal.com into the command below. We need to paste the bold part of the first command into this one below:

/summon ArmorStand ~0 ~-1.5 ~1 {Rotation:[45f],NoGravity:1,Invisible:1,Invulnerable:1,DisabledSlots: 2039552,Equipment:[{},{},{},{},{id:"minecraft:skull",Damage:3s,Count:1b,tag:{SkullOwner:{PasteTheBoldPartInHere}]}}}}]}

Paste this command into the commandblock and run it. Voila, you have a pizzabox on your table!

If you want a better understanding of the command we just put in the commandblock, please read the information below, I break the command in parts to explain what we use it for in this example.

~0 ~-1.5 ~1 - With this first part we can change the position of our armorstand. You can use x,y,z coordinates or relative coordinates (~x ~y ~z), I find the last one easier to use and much better if you want to share your creations. If we change this to ~0 ~-1.5 ~2 you will see the armorstand will move one block away from the commandblock (because we changed the Z coordinate).

{Rotation:[45f] - Rotation of the armorstand itself (0-360 degrees)

NoGravity:1 - Makes our armorstand float, we need this to position our armorstand in a good way (1=True, 0=False)

Invisible:1 - We don't want to see the armorstand, I recommend to set this to 0 when you start so you can easily edit the position of your armorstand. When you are happy with the position you just set it back to 1.

Invulnerable:1 - To make sure the armorstand isnt vulnerable for fire or tnt etc.

DisabledSlots: 2039552 - Will disable any possible interaction with the armorstand. We don't want anyone to break our beautiful creation :).

Equipment:[{},{},{},{},{ALotOfStuffHere}] - This last piece will set a custom playerhead on the head of the armorstand.

I suggest to play a little with the position and rotation to get the armorstand in the place you want!
There are a lot more tags you can add. For example tags to put the playerhead as equipment in the hand of the armorstand instead of its head. Or to create a smaller armorstand to make a smaller pizzabox etc.

And last but not least, you can easily remove a visible armorstand in creative by leftclicking it. But if it is invisible it is not possible to do this, therefor you can use the command below:

Vanilla minecraft:
/kill @e[type=ArmorStand,r=3]

Spigot/bukkit (works only in a commandblock for now?)
/minecraft:kill @e[type=ArmorStand,r=3]

/butcher 3

The number 3 is a radius of 3, you can change this in whatever radius you want/need to remove your armorstand.

Guys, you can actually have heads in 1.10 because of heads.freshcoal.com. Also, what is the command for the open and closed pizza boxes?

Thats why the project title says it is for 1.8 ;). Armorstands have different tags in 1.9 or above, I might update it in the far future, but right now I am very busy. Sorry.

Hi I am a huge fan of your work and was wondering if you could share the ids of the heads with me? Also if you do would it be alright for me to use this on a server. I would make sure to link this page and give credit! Thank you for taking time out of your day to read this! ^_^
