I'm currently running a Minecraft Realm. I am trying to give people some renamed things, but I have no idea how to rename things. Well, I know how to rename thing with the majestic anvil, but when it comes to colours and non-italic names, I am clueless. I heard of the lore tag and the custom name tag but I don't know how to use it.

Thanks all.

The lore tag can be added without server plugins or mods, more information can be found here.

The basic command for it is:

/give @p Insert item type here 1 14 {display:{Name:"Insert name here",Lore:[Insert lore here]}}.

This works without any plugins or modifications, and you can display the name as well as the lore with the command.

    -1 Does Minecraft Realms even support Bukkit?!? Because it doesn't.

  • That's what I'm trying to say. I'm running a Minecraft Realm which does NOT support any plugins or mods. The very last part (the lore link part) though is very helpful. I'll take that as the answer. Thanks.

You can rename things by using name tags. You put a name tag in the anvil then up there is a little line that u can write the name.

  • You can only rename mobs with name tags. Renaming the items in the anvil is the correct way. I down-voted you.
