On certain maps, I have seen blocks riding invisible, invincible, and silent silverfish. How would I do this with a beacon? It looks like the block is just walking around on its own. (1.8)

  • Something to do with FallingSand, I don't know what – VolcanicTitan Jul 2 '16 at 2:24
  • Ah... yes! I should have thought of That @VolcanicTitan I think I know what to do now, but I'll have to test it – ALX Jul 2 '16 at 6:59
/summon FallingSand ~ ~ ~ {Block:"minecraft:beacon",Time:1,Riding:[{id:Silverfish,ShowParticles:0,Silent:1,ActiveEffects:[{Id:14,Amplifier:1,Duration:1000000},{Id:11,Amplifier:100,Duration:1000000}]}]}

OR for 1.9 and above

/summon Silverfish ~ ~ ~ {ShowParticles:0,Silent:1,ActiveEffects:[{Id:14,Amplifier:1,Duration:1000000},{Id:11,Amplifier:100,Duration:1000000}],Passengers:[{id:FallingSand,Block:"minecraft:beacon",Time:1}]}

EDIT: Use this command on a repeating command block to reset its timer as after 30 sec, the falling sand would despawn

/entitydata @e[type=FallingSand] {Time:1}
  • Note that this will never function as a beacon. Beacons have to be built on pyramids – Unionhawk Jul 2 '16 at 12:55
  • It's more functional , but for a period 30 seconds, the falling sand turns into his item form. – iDoomfull Jul 2 '16 at 14:00
  • @iDoomfull Thanks for pointing out. I have edited the answer to prevent them from despawning – user142490 Jul 3 '16 at 1:17
