I'm trying to summon an invisible falling block using a repeating command block to get rid of the shadow created by it, I've tried using ActiveEffects NBT but that isn't seeming to work, here's the code:

summon minecraft:falling_block ~ ~1.5 ~ {BlockState:{Name:"barrier"},Time:0,NoGravity:1,ActiveEffects:[{Id:14,Amplifier:0,Duration:1,ShowParticles:0b}]}

Wherever the shadow is, set it to barrier, then summon another falling block at the location of the barrier that the block originally was.

  • Thanks, never realised you can do this!

Since the block is an entity, can you not just give it the Invisibility effect?

  • I'm afraid this is incorrect. Most inanimate objects like falling blocks are actually immune to effects. Mar 23, 2021 at 20:13
