/setblock -19 4 11, -19 4 15, -12 4 12 lit_redstone_lamp

Like that? I tried, doesnt work.


No, each /setblock command can only set one block at a time. You can place command blocks in a command chain instead, or run one command at a time.


You cannot place more then a single block at once with setblock but you can use /clone <source corner 1> <source corner 2> <destination (north-west corner)> instead and copy an entire building and place it anywhere you want.

    I think you’ve gotten the syntax for /clone wrong. The source coordinates come before the destination, not after. – ExpertCoder14 Nov 27 '20 at 6:43
  • Yes, it should be <source corner 1> <source corner 2> <destination (south-west corner)> – Penguin Dec 1 '20 at 2:52

No, but using the /fill command will fill multiple blocks at once.

  • @KyleRone the question was: Can one setblock command place multiple blocks? And the first word in this answer was "no". While maybe this wasn't the best post, "no" is definitely an answer, not a comment. To @John maybe go into the syntax of /fill to make a better answer. – Penguin Dec 1 '20 at 2:54
  • @ExpertCoder14 i know, but this is their post so won't they still be notified, or does it not notify them then? I'll do it anyway – Penguin Dec 1 '20 at 4:34
