I was just wondering how you could make a Pig with a Saddle ride an EnderDragon that is riding a MinecartRideable.

Right now, I have:

/summon Pig ~ ~ ~ {Riding:{id:EnderDragon},Saddle:1} 

and have tried:

/summon Pig ~ ~ ~ {Riding:{id:EnderDragon},Riding:{id:MinecartRideable},Saddle:1}

Which summons a Pig with a Saddle riding an EnderDragon.

I want it so that the EnderDragon is riding a MinecartRideable.

  • I see you've already answered your own question in this case, but in future there are a range of helpful tools to avoid writing our the whole command yourself. e.g. this one: mcstacker.bimbimma.com – DBS Oct 18 '15 at 23:01

Seeing your two attempts - You almost got it the second time around.

So, your attempt was:

/summon Pig ~ ~ ~ {Riding:{id:EnderDragon},Riding:{id:MinecartRideable},Saddle:1}`

Right now, your command looks like this:

Summon a Pig, riding on a Enderdragon AND a Minecart.

To make your command correct, you have to nest the mobs correctly:

/summon Pig ~ ~ ~ {Riding:{id:EnderDragon,Riding:{id:MinecartRideable}},Saddle:1}

Which is:

Summon a Pig, riding a Enderdragon that is riding a Minecart.

If you want a mob that is riding another mob to ride said mob, you have to nest the riding tag inside the second mob.

As stated by MrLemon in an comment, with the Riding tag being depreciated and being replaced by the Passenger tag (which is basically back-to-front) in the next version of Minecraft (currently active in snapshot 15w41a), we can use:

/summon MinecartRideable ~ ~ ~ {Passengers:[{id:EnderDragon,Passengers:[{id:Pig,Saddle:1}]}]}

Which is:

Summon a Minecart that has a Enderdragon in it which has a pig riding on it.

Or to simply put it: The above stuff but back-to-front.
Minecart-Enderdragon-Pig, not Pig-Enderdragon-Minecart.

    It is worth noting that starting with 1.9 / 15w41a, Riding is deprecated and replaced by Passengers, which works the other way around, i.e. summon a Minecart carrying and Ender Dragon carrying a pig: /summon MinecartRideable ~ ~ ~ {Passengers:[{id:EnderDragon,Passengers:[{id:Pig,Saddle:1}]}]} (not 100% sure the tag takes a list of entities ([]), but I assume so, since boats can have multiple passengers at the same level). – MrLemon Oct 19 '15 at 8:56
  • @MrLemon At least now, when I plan my stacks - I don't need to flip my lists back to front. – aytimothy Oct 19 '15 at 9:31
  • It's a nice side-effect. The real reason for the change was to allow multiple entities to ride the same entity, which was completely impossible in the previous version of the commands. – MrLemon Oct 19 '15 at 10:51

You can do that with:

/summon Pig ~ ~ ~ {Riding:{id:EnderDragon},Riding:{id:MinecartRideable},Saddle:1}
  • Care to explain your command? | Also, you've gotten your nestings wrong. – aytimothy Oct 19 '15 at 0:33
