I have been searching everywhere (mainly on youtube) for ages, but I cannot find any tutorials on how to get charged creeper spawners without either MCEdit or NBTEdit. Is there a way to get charged creeper spawners without the use of external programs?

Assuming you're on creative with cheats enabled and on version 1.7, you should be able to place down a command block and insert this command into it:

/setblock ~ ~ ~ mob_spawner 0 replace {EntityId:Creeper,SpawnData:{powered:1}}

Then power with any redstone device, and the command block should turn into a charged creeper spawner.

  • Thhanks loads. That is the most helpful answer I have ever had. In returb, I will give you a cool command. The command is: /summon FallingSand ~ ~100 ~ {TileID:8,Time:1} Enter this correctly and you should get a wet surprise.

  • The other answers were just telling you it wouldn't work :) Cool command. Did my command work for you? Feb 9, 2014 at 13:57
  • yes it does. I have worked out how to convert it to make spawners like angry wolf spawners and tamedocelot spawners.

Spawners? No. You can't even get standard creeper spawners. The only way to get a charged creeper 100% in vanilla without an external editor or mod is to have a creeper struck by lightning. Obviously, even in perfect conditions, this is hard to accomplish, and won't produce a steady stream of them like a dungeon spawner will for other mobs.

Of course the above only applies to survival without cheats. In creative mode (or any mode with cheats enabled), you can get a charged creeper or even a spawner. This is because you can assign NBT tags to a block or entity using the /setblock or /summon command, respectively.

(Note that I don't know the exact commands it would take to make this work. I'll do some research, but if someone wants to edit it in, feel free.)

  • It's also possible in the latest versions using the "Summon" command. "/summon Creeper ~ ~1 ~ {powered:1}" will spawn a powered creeper at your location. (Or the location of a command block if the command is called through that)

  • I totally didn't think about that, thanks.

Do you mean without mods? No you can't only single screeners get supercharged with lightning
