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 Jul 2, 2016 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

1 Answer 1

/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

  • It's more functional , but for a period 30 seconds, the falling sand turns into his item form.

  • @iDoomfull Thanks for pointing out. I have edited the answer to prevent them from despawning
