I am trying to make a kit PvP map. In the map I want the players to see different kits/classes represented by armor stands with various equipment on them, to represent the kit. The players will be in adventure mode, and I want to know how to stop them from stealing the items from the armor stands. I know about the {Invulnerable:1b} tag to make the players unable to break the armor stands, but I do not know of a tag that makes the armor stands unable to be edited (taking off armor, weapons etc.)

    Have you made any attempt to solve this yourself? Arqade works better when askers show effort to solve their own problems; we see that you have a problem you've worked on, and answerers respond to that. You also get a more specific answer that's tailored exactly to the part you're stuck, and Arqade gets a very specific question. Everybody wins! – Frank Sep 7 '17 at 23:19

    @Frank Yes, I have tried to solve this myself, playing with different tags, like I said the {Invulnerable:1b} tag. – MrSnuffle Sep 7 '17 at 23:22
  • So what research have you done to prevent the editing? That seems to be the core issue, from what I can see. – Frank Sep 7 '17 at 23:41

Use the DisabledSlots tag. To make an armor stand that players cannot change, use the tag {DisabledSlots:2096896}. Note that the number 2096896 is the sum of the flag numbers.

Refer to this post on Reddit that lists out the flag numbers for slots that can be disabled. To use multiple flags, use the sum of the desired flag numbers.

    The list is also in the wiki, that's probably more up-to-date in case anything about this changes in the future: minecraft.gamepedia.com/chunk_format (section about about stands) – Fabian Röling Sep 8 '17 at 15:33
  • @54D thanks for the answer! And thanks for not being like Frank... – MrSnuffle Sep 9 '17 at 20:03
