I made this bonkers command block machine as a thank you for 1000 YouTube subscribers.

It has 148144 command blocks totalling more than 27 million characters that sample the blocks around the player
who wears the predator armor, calculates the average color and gives the appropriate dyed armor. Lots of command
blocks, yet it still runs pretty smoothly assuming that you give Java a decent amount of memory and that
you don't stand among the commands blocks.

If you try it out, give it a while when you first log in to the world - it lags terribly for a little bit since
you end up among the command blocks in the spawn chunks, but you'll be moved out to a better spawn and get back to
normal framerates.

The armor is in the chest near the spawn location. Note that once you take it on, you currently can't take it off.

No, not really, I'm afraid. The blocks are position-dependent, so they must be placed at the position they are in the world. They also require a bunch of armor stands placed where they are, and 48 scoreboards.

The closest thing you could do is to copy the data folder and the region/r.0.0.mca file into whatever other world you want it in - which is how I created this world.

Never updating at once. They're very carefully laid out to never exceed the clocking blocks limit. You can see that in the video, too - no chunk updates.
Dear Lord, that is a lot of code for minecraft., i think thats about as much as in the game!

Modifying the armor is pretty easy if you wanna make it even cooler ^^

Sure - but there's also a very cool factor in a thing like this being unmodified, normal minecraft models and textures :)
