(Based on this thread)

Using external programs, it is possible to create an effect which actually decreases a players maximum health. This is achieved by using the health boost effect with a negative level, and is not possible without use of an external program.

However (with the use of an external program), I can only create the effect once. Is there any way I can summon the effect over and over?

I have a few theories on how this could be done, but none of them have worked.

  1. Create a "negative" potion, and place it in a chest. Summon the item in the chest as a splash potion directly next to a player.
  2. Remove the physics from a negative splash potion, leaving it suspended in mid-air. Copy and paste the entity on the ground nearby a player.

Normally, my strategy to solving this problem would be something along the lines of:

  1. Clone a dispenser containing the potion above all players.
  2. Activate the dispenser.
  3. Break the dispenser, and the block activating it.` However, this will not always work, since players might be completely surrounded in blocks, or suffocating in a wall.
  • Which version are you asking this for? In 1.11, if the Amplifier tag is below 0, the game will instead use 0 for the amplifier rather than the negative number (more details here. – Skylinerw Feb 16 '17 at 20:51
  • @Skylinerw I am using 1.11.2. Does that change obsolete this? – Julian Lachniet Feb 16 '17 at 21:46
  • Unfortunately it does. You could still use attribute modifiers to change generic.maxHealth, but it's quite different than potions (since it requires the player to wear something) – Skylinerw Feb 16 '17 at 22:23
