I'm not very knowledgeable in mc commands but I had been trying to write a system that would announce if a player had entered the nether using execute and scoreboard, unfortunately the outcome was either it didn't work or it spammed chat, I eventually scrapped the whole thing out of frustration, is this even possible to do? If so what would you do?

  • Can you show some things you tried? – Schism May 5 '19 at 17:58

You can execute your command based on a dimension check like this:

/execute in the_nether run <command> @a[distance=0..,tag=!inNether]

And in a chain command block behind that, put this tag command so that the first command only gets executed once:

/execute in the_nether run tag @a[distance=0..,tag=!inNether] add inNether
  • Thanks for the advice, I tried using the first command to check the dimension, but it seems that @a[distance=0..,tag=!inNether] is included as part of the run which I assume it should not be, i.imgur.com/cJag7rC.png , I'm probably doing something wrong here but i'm to naive to know what. – nobelknocker May 5 '19 at 20:58
  • Why do you enter something completely different than I wrote? Just copy-paste and write the command after run yourself, with the selector in the appropriate location. – Fabian Röling May 5 '19 at 21:34
  • Sorry I was messing around with the command because I couldn't get it to work initially, so what I should do is replace the <command> i.imgur.com/zWmNWFx.png with any regular command right? e.g. title? – nobelknocker May 5 '19 at 22:25

    Yes, <command> is just any command you want to apply to those players. – Fabian Röling May 5 '19 at 22:52
  • Alright, I got that, so I tried replacing <command> with tellraw but I seem to have trouble with the selector i.imgur.com/tZLcmzL.png – nobelknocker May 5 '19 at 23:01
