I have cheats on, am in creative mode, got my x y and z coordinates right, but it keeps on telling me the delta is wrong. I’ve tried multiple commands. /particle dripwater 856 69 -53 1 1 1 8000, I’ve tried it with ~’s, I’ve tried to use /execute, I’ve tried put x=, y=, etc. can someone please help?

  • What's the exact error message? – Fabian Röling Jun 3 '19 at 16:26
  • dripwater is not a particle name. Where did you get that from? – Fabian Röling Jun 3 '19 at 16:27

you can put this into a repeating command block to create something that looks a bit like rain that everyone can see.

/particle minecraft:dripping_water ~ ~10 ~ 2 1 2 1 10 normal @a

the syntax for /particle is:

/particle <name> [<pos>] [<delta>] [<speed>] [<count>] [<normal|forced>] [<viewers>]

where <name> is the name of the particle effect that you want to use

<pos> is where you want to use the effect

<delta> is how big the area where the particles can spawn should be, using <pos> as the center point

<speed> determins how fast the particle is animated (it does not seem to make a difference for me in the command above)

<count> determins how many particles should be spawned

<forced|normal> decides if the particles are forced, or if they are normal, which means that they obey the graphic settings of a player (for example by spawning fewer, or none)

<viewers> decides who can see the particles.

  • I personally quite like /execute at @p run particle minecraft:dripping_water ~ ~3 ~ 10 5 10 1 3 normal @p combined with a low rendering distance (mine was 2) for a mysterious, or special looking effect, which I found while testing – user232393 Jun 3 '19 at 16:47
