I'm trying to make a command block that sets your spawn point, but I can't quite figure it out. I put in spawnpoint @a 1203 67 -402 and when I activate it, the command block says "set Player's spawnpoint to bla bla bla." But when I do /kill, I end up at the original spawn. Any help??

The spawnpoint command only sets the spawn point for the specified player (in your case Player). So you can try playing the map offline because then your name is Player.

You have to set the spawnpoint one block higher! In you'r case you have to do "spawnpoint @a 1203 68 -402"

This will only work if you are within 10 blocks of the commandblock.

if it says "home bed obstructed" or something like that when you die, try raising the y coordinate 1 block.

for example instead of "spawnpoint @p 100 60 100" try "spawnpoint @p 100 61 100"

worked for me every time i ran into spawnpoint via command block problems.

What I did was I was trying to make a pvp map, So players select their teams and then class, and the spawn would be set in the little dispenser room where they got their stuff, and I wanted to set the spawn there so they would automatically get their stuff, so I did the command

spawnpoint @P -23.300 85.000 -24.50

But when I test it out it says "Set (Player's Name)'s spawnpoint to -300000000000, 0, -30000000000000

EDIT : FIGURED IT OUT
I'm Gettin' away wif yer diamonds

Okay, I have tried EVERY solution to this.
Not a single one works.
My command block's line is: "/spawnpoint @a 117.57666 116.5 -275.37122"
I tried putting the y-value up 1 (it was 115.5)
I tried doing it with AND without @a
I even tried doing it right underneath the player and also about 46 blocks away.
NOTHING WORKS! Posted Image
Because vanilla isn't good enough.

I HAVE A SOLUTION!
=================
Spawnpoints are set as 0 0 0. The command won't work if there are decimals. This is because when you respawn, the game will automatically add .50 to but the x and y values. For example, 70.50 20 50.50 will not work because after the game adds .50, it will become 71 20 51, and that defeats the purpose of setting your spawnpoint at that location.
Notice, if you are standing on a block, and you type the command /spawnpoint, it will give you a set of coordinates (example: -134 67 2345) but never any decimals! Then when you respawn, the game will add .50 to the x and y and you will respawn at (example) -134.50 67 2345.50.

Hope that helps!

You can't set your spawnpoint in the Nether. Notice how you can never sleep in a bed either (beds set your spawn point, of course)?
