How could I use a command to give a player an infinite supply of snowballs that do 5 hearts of damage? There was a bug where you could summon infinite items in snapshot 13w36a, which right here:

/summon Item ~ ~ ~ {Item:{id:<id>,count:128}}

The item count is set to 128, which is what I believe causes this glitch, Unfortunately after reading around a bit, I was led to believe that this bug was patched, due to being prevelant in a development snapshot. So, how could I summon an infinite supply of snowballs that do 5 hearts of damage?


The infinite supply bug (Which I think they actually added on purpose) still works fine. Your problem there is rather simple, you just forgot to capitalise the "C" in "count". This should work properly:

/summon Item ~ ~ ~ {Item:{id:minecraft:snowball,Count:128}}

The wiki has some nice pages on NBT data which I use to get the format and names right: http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Player.dat_Format (Players and items) http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Chunk_format (Everything else)

Doing 5 hearts of damage is not something that NBT data can do to a snowball; I don't even think any data is carried over from the snowball item to the thrown snowball entity. The best you could do is perhaps have a fast clock with this on it:

/execute @e[type=Snowball] ~ ~ ~ /effect @p[r=2] 7 10 1

Which would make a thrown snowball constantly give players within 2 blocks (changeable) instant damage II for 10 ticks. The thrower would also likely take damage though, and it would be subject to lag.

2014 says it is true, but now its not. The only way to spawn INF# snowballs or any object is to glitch it.

There isn't a command except the blockdata one.
