I want to make a banner for my sister from Planet Minecraft, but I can't create a banner with more than 6 layers. I'm not sure if the console has Command Blocks, but I don't wanna waste my time typing in all of the code.


This is not possible to do without commands.

You can use this tool to generate a command for you that creates the banner.

Yes, the console edition has command blocks. You can get one by entering /give @p command_block into the chat.

  • How do you enable the chat, though? I'm having trouble with that. – KoolKidz112 Nov 24 '17 at 19:57
  • There should be a key. The wiki says it's the right arrow key by default. – Fabian Röling Nov 24 '17 at 21:26
  • But if you don't know how to do that, you probably also didn't enable cheats, so then you would be unable to use (most) commands, including this one. – Fabian Röling Nov 24 '17 at 21:27
  • Wait, is this for PS4? If it is, then I don't know about the right arrow key and how to enable cheats. Any tips on where those are on the DUALSHOCK 4 or the PS4 Console? – KoolKidz112 Nov 24 '17 at 21:36
  • I did some research and found out that console edition is real crap. Once again. Anyway, I don't know, the wiki states many different controls for all kinds of devices. Maybe just try all the keys? – Fabian Röling Nov 24 '17 at 21:44

I know this is an old topic but yeah just wanted to give my input since I've been creating servers for years and I'm an active member of the suggestion community with Mojang. Creative, singleplayer and commands are the only way at the moment to make banners with more than 6 layers. At least without the multiplayer survival server having a plugin that will override Mojang's coded 6 layer limit. BUT, they are in the process to raise this limit for banners.

Command blocks is too redundant not to mention most servers have the use of command blocked turned off but since just typing the command in chat will give you any number of banners you may need. I use this site for may including banners Minecraft Tools including Custom Banners


There's only 3 ways in survival. Commands, command blocks or the multiplayer server would need to have a plugin installed, like BetterBanner plugin, to bypass Mojang's hard coded 6 layer limit.
