How do I spawn mobs via a command in Minecraft 1.5? I keep doing the command "/spawn 99 1" (Iron Golem) but I just get a message that says that it isn't a valid command. How do I do it?
That's because it isn't a command. In vanilla, or unmodded, Minecraft, there is not a way to spawn monsters or animals with commands. If you wish to spawn mobs, there are 2 options:
First: Use unofficial mods to spawn mobs. Second: Use mob eggs to spawn mobs.
You can also use the common server mod "Bukkit" for spawning mobs via commands on multiplayer. Add the plugin Essentials to your bukkit server (or any other plugin that allows spawning of mobs via commands), and type
If you are in singleplayer mode but not in creative, click Esc, Open to LAN server, Enable Cheats, then Create Server.
Type /gamemode 1 and you should be in creative mode.
If you have cheats enabled (if this is singleplayer), or if you are oped in multiplayer (vanilla multiplayer, you might have a slightly different command if you have Bukkit plugins installed), you can use
There isn't a vanilla command for spawning mobs.
You can do the following;
I hope this will answer your question! Have fun killing those creepers!
Try /mob (nameofmob) (numberofmobs) if you have WorldGuard or SinglePlayerCommands.
