How can I make a certain radius around a command block, somewhere only certain people can enter, even with /tpo. I want the command block to teleport the people who try to teleport inside that radius to be teleported to certain coordinates. Is that possible? If so, how?


You could do it by TPing all players not in a specified team away.

Add all players that you want to access the area to a team:

/scoreboard teams add [team name]
/scoreboard teams join [players...]

Then you need a command block in Repeat mode in the area, you can use needs redstone or always active, but I would suggest that you at first run a redstone wire with repeaters and a lever at the end for testing.

Repeating command block command:

/tp @e[r=[range in which players cannot access the area],team=![name of the team that can access the area]] ~40 ~ ~ [you can change the location]


/tp @e[r=10,team=!access] ~20 ~ ~
  • Yup, that's just what I was about to suggest. If you don't mind other entities (eg. minecarts, mobs) being in that area, you can use the @a selector instead of @e. You could also use a scoreboard tag rather than a team for this, but there's no real reason to use one over the other. – TenNineAce Jan 17 '17 at 4:26
  • 1.13 syntax: /tp @e[distance=..<number>,team=!<team>] ~40 ~ ~ – pppery Aug 2 '19 at 19:31

You would need to continuously /testfor the area to see if people are in the specified range, etc.
Then you'd link the /testfor command-block to another which teleports the player to somewhere else.

And the good thing about this, is that even if they teleport-in or walk-in, they'll be teleported either way... or is that what you wanted?
Hopefully, my answer assists you in your endeavours.

  • I have attempted stuff like that before, but it never worked for me. – MasterOfTheTiger Jan 24 '17 at 19:31
