I am trying to make a freestanding crawling system that works for multiplayer in version 1.15. I was wondering if there would be a way to summon an entity to the player when that specific entity is not near the player. Here are the commands that I have so far:

/scoreboard objectives add sneak minecraft.custom:minecraft.sneak_time

/execute as @a[scores={sneak=1}] at @s run tp @e[type=minecraft:armor_stand,distance=..2] ~ ~-1 ~

/execute as @a[scores={sneak=1..}] run scoreboard players reset @a sneak

/execute as @a[scores={sneak=1}] at @s unless entity @e[tag=IsCrawl,distance=3..,limit=1] run summon armor_stand ~ ~ ~ {NoGravity:1b,Invisible:1b,NoBasePlate:1b,Tags:["IsCrawl"],Passengers:[{id:"minecraft:shulker",Silent:1b,Invulnerable:1b,CustomNameVisible:0b,DeathLootTable:"minecraft:empty",AttachFace:0b,Tags:["IsCrawl"],ActiveEffects:[{Id:14b,Amplifier:1b,Duration:1000000,ShowParticles:0b}]}]}

/execute as @a at @s if entity @e[tag=IsCrawl,distance=3..,limit=1] run kill @e[tag=IsCrawl]
  • You're going to have to give us a few more details. I don't fully understand the problem. – MBraedley Jul 17 at 19:50
  • I just need help with detecting for when an entity is not near the player. – Help Please Jul 17 at 20:28
  • There's an execute variant similar to execute if that inverts the result; execute unless. You're most of the way there already with your last command. – MBraedley Jul 17 at 20:38
  • I made a command like this: execute as @a at @s unless entity @e[tag=IsCrawl,distance=3..,limit=1] run summon armor_stand ~ ~ ~ {NoGravity:1b,Invisible:1b,NoBasePlate:1b,Tags:["IsCrawl"],Passengers:[{id:"minecraft:shulker",Silent:1b,Invulnerable:1b,CustomNameVisible:0b,DeathLootTable:"minecraft:empty",AttachFace:0b,Tags:["IsCrawl"],ActiveEffects:[{Id:14b,Amplifier:1b,Duration:1000000,ShowParticles:0b}]}]} – Help Please Jul 17 at 21:39
  • But I need one that only summons when the player has a sneak score of 1 and when the entity is not near the player – Help Please Jul 17 at 21:41

try making it so the entity sets your player a dummy score of 2 when within a certain radius and having the game subtract the dummy by 1 every tick.

if the score reaches 0, summon a new entity
