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.
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
