I want to make a /sethome kind of thing. I don't think you can test what a player says, but I want an item that can be thrown, then mark the X Y and Z cords. Could I do that, if so how, and will it require a command block for every block in the world?

  • So just to clarify, you want to mark a players coordinates when a block is thrown?

  • Well, I guess it could be done by having a command block continuously following a player around (above or below the player), and constantly testing for a thrown item in a certain radius. (Alternatively, you could check if the player used to have an item and now doesn't, but then they could have just put it in a chest) If it detects one, it can /sethome at the player's coords. I know it's not perfect, but I think it can get the job done. If you want me to show you the commands, tell me, and I'll post an answer.

There is a way to /sethome in vanilla Minecraft. This does not require you to throw a block, but I think it may be worth your time. Watch this video:

With this you can /sethome, /tpa, and /back
