I am trying to help my son add a custom head in Minecraft (PC, Java edition 1.13.2). According to this site I enter a command into a command block, for example,

/give @p minecraft:player_head{display:{Name:"{\"text\":\"Ice Block\"}"},SkullOwner:{Id:"192dbe7b-1309-4c27-a496-5878d81cd1f8",Properties:{textures:[{Value:"eyJ0ZXh0dXJlcyI6eyJTS0lOIjp7InVybCI6Imh0dHA6Ly90ZXh0dXJlcy5taW5lY3JhZnQubmV0L3RleHR1cmUvYTI2NDQwNzFiNmM3YmJhZTdiNWU0NWQ5ZjgyZjk2ZmZiNWVlOGUxNzdhMjNiODI1YTQ0NjU2MDdmMWM5YyJ9fX0="}]}}} 1

But when I do this the command seems to be accepted but nothing changes. Am I missing a step?

  • What do you mean with "nothing changes"? You get no item? – Fabian Röling Apr 22 '19 at 10:23
  • @FabianRöling yes, my understanding is the PC’s head should change but it doesn’t. – Darren Apr 22 '19 at 10:26
  • Skulls are weird, see this bug report: bugs.mojang.com/browse/MC-146631 Does this already answer your question? – Fabian Röling Apr 22 '19 at 10:26
  • "PC's head"? What do you mean? The player skin changing? No, you get an item. – Fabian Röling Apr 22 '19 at 10:28
  • @FabianRöling PC = player character. This is to get a custom head, no? Or how it was described to me by my 8 yo son who I’m doing this for. – Darren Apr 22 '19 at 10:32

/give always gives you an item, in this case a player head.

To change your skin, go to minecraft.net or use the launcher (only on Windows).
