In Minecraft what command could I use to summon a mob facing the players direction? So if I was facing north then when the pig (random example mob) spawned in it would face north as well. Thanks in advance!

To get the exact rotation (rather than what Darkchill Slayer answered) you summon it with a certain tag:

/summon pig ~ ~ ~ {Tags:["Rotate"]}

And in an always active repeat command block:

tp @e[tag=Rotate] @p

This will not only teleport to the same location, but also with the same rotation. After the repeat command block you should add a chain command block:

scoreboard players tag @e[tag=Rotate] remove Rotate

This prevents it from always teleporting to a player


You can do this by using /summon

/summon Creeper ~ ~ ~ {Rotation:[90f,90f]}

If you want to spawn in a different direction, change the rotation angle tags (the 90 numbers)
