I am creating a apocalypse map and there is a radiation meter, the radiation works with armor stands that spawn close to zombies and they should disappear if there are no zombies nearby, i created a command for that but for some reason if i set the distance to less then 50 all of the existing armor stands despawn and new ones do not spawn This is the command that spawns them :

/execute as @e[team=mob] at @s run execute unless entity @e[tag=radiationzone,distance=..15] run summon armor_stand ~ ~-1 ~ {Small:1b,NoGravity:1b,Silent:1b,Invulnerable:1b,Invisible:1b,Tags:["radiationzone"],DisabledSlots:4144959}

This is the command that kills them

/execute as @e[tag=radiationzone] run execute unless entity @e[team=mob,distance=..30] run kill @s

First, let me get things straight: A /execute command should never need the words run execute in them. Your commands can be reduced to:

  as @e[team=mob]
  at @s
  unless entity @e[tag=radiationzone,distance=..15]
run summon armor_stand ~ ~-1 ~ {

  as @e[tag=radiationzone]
  unless entity @e[team=mob,distance=..30]
run kill @s

And now I think I see your problem. The as subcommand of /execute only changes the executing entity, but doesn't change the execution location. You correctly remedied this by using at @s immediately after in command 1, but you forgot it in command 2.

  • Thank you so much for the help! it works perfectly now!
