    posted a message on 1.10 Structure - Bridge made from various grey blocks - with download

    Couldn't find a specific place for sharing the new 1.10 structures, so hopefully this is okay.


    The bridge is 31L x 10H x 7W and is my first attempt at a detailed monochromatic bridge.

    The structure includeds air, except right around the ends, which allows it to kind of blend into the hills.

    You will probably still want to blend it a bit more like I did in the screen shots.

    Also, the structure stops short of the support column footings to allow for varying height terrain.


    The file should be placed inside of .minecraft\saves\YourWorldName\structures\

    There are several good videos on youtube explaining how to load structure into your world if you need more info.


    Download here:

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/osbnrgvbvuamco6/Bridge_GreyBlocks.nbt?dl=0

    Dropbox will try to have you sign-in/sign-up, but there is a small continue link near the bottom and then the Direct Ddownload link is in a drop-down is in the upper-right.

    Then I got a pop-up asking me to sign-in, but at the bottom there's a no thanks, continue to download link that works.

    Please let me know if this new link works any better.


    Here is the old link as a possible warning to others.


    After uploading and then downloading my file with this:

    http://www.filedropper.com/bridgegreyblockssealanterns31x10x7

    my file size was 78KB instead of the original 6KB. I apologize for not
    testing this before making the link public. Something is obviously very
    off here.

    posted a message on Is it possible using command blocks in 1.9 to add a new page to an already signed book?
    Quote from YMbrothers»

    Let me ask you a question, do you know the data tags a written book have?


    drop the book and do /entitydata @e[type=Item,r=5,c=1] {}

    check where the tag is, then edit it, and you may solved your own problem.


    Thank you for that tip. It really helped and will be helpful for many other things as I continue this map.
    Unfortunately, it looks like pages are stored in a list. Editing things within a list overwrites the contents of the list.
    I wanted to be able to add warps to a book throughout an adventure (non-linear). I suppose it could be done with scoreboard and command blocks testing for all the combinations. Instead I will do tellraws to the chat. That way I can test a location and do the tellraw, then test the next one, etc.

    posted a message on redstone Testfor named entity with spaces
    Quote from ImCoolYeah105»

    This format only works for commands that accept nbt data (like test for and scoreboard). When using other commands (like tp), only selectors work (i.e. @e[name=bob]), which do not work with spaces.

    Therefor, you can either use the Bob_Barnes, or assign him a scoreboard value and teleport an entity with that value.

    I guess I still think of scoreboard as being about players and so hadn't considered using it for a villager. Thanks.

    posted a message on redstone Testfor named entity with spaces

    I tried:

    tp @e[type=Villager,CustomName="Bob Barnes"]  ~ -50 ~

    Inside the [] I also tried with customname, customName, name, 'Bob Barnes'.

    I also tried some variations inside the {}.

    Tried to find a way to escape a space using something like this: \s (because \n works for newline in some things).


    Eventually just named him Bob_Barnes.

    Working in 15w47c.

    I have a villager named Bob Barnes.

    Trying this in commandblock with no success:

    tp @e[type=Villager] {CustomName:"Bob Barnes"} ~ -50 ~

    I get this error: [17:23:40] '{CustomName:"Bob' is not a valid number

    Any suggestion?

    posted a message on Minecraft PC- Target Selectors and Their Arguments
    Quote from opaaufkoka»

    im looking for an argument that selects a target based on its rank on a scoreboard.


    dont know if it exists, but this is what im looking for kinda:


    @p[score_XYZ_rank=1]


    anyone, anything?


    workarounds would od it for me too


    There is this command: scoreboard players operation <targetName> <targetObjective> <operation> <selector> <objective>
    This lets you compare two players scores, set score equal to another score, swap the scores, etc.
    Theoretically you could sort all your players scores.

    If you're trying to select the player who has the best score in objective XYZ:
    Maybe you could pick a random player at the beginning when everyone scores are 0 and set a leader tag. Then constantly test every other players score against the player with the leader tag, and swap the two when a better score is found. Also set the leader tag off the previous leader and onto the new leader. That would at least keep track of the player with the best rank. To sort everyone would require this process many times over. Knowing how many players to test could be a problem. And to keep track of specific players each player would have to have a numbered tag (maybe assign the tag as they log in?).
    pseudo code:
    P2 score > P1 score? then P2 score swap P1 score, start over since new P1.
    P3 score > P1 score? then P3 score swap P1 score, start over since new P1.
    P4 score > P1 score? then P4 score swap P1 score, start over since new P1.
    Etc.

    Or maybe just request Mojang to add /scoreboard objectives setdisplay sidebar XYZ [sort]

    where sort would be ascending or descending.

    posted a message on Is it possible using command blocks in 1.9 to add a new page to an already signed book?

    I'm making a long adventure map and I'd like to have a book store tellraws which tp the player to warp points they have activated. I don't want all the warps available from the beginning.

    Trying to do this in plain vanilla Minecraft. Currently working with snapshot 15w47c.

    I feel like I came across some kind of append thing somewhere, but can't find it now that I really want to.


    Ideally, I'd be able to add a new line to the current page (can use scoreboard objective to keep track of line count).

    Or I could do one line per page.


    Anyone know how to do either of those?


    Maybe there is a way to copy the pages from a written book into a book and quill, write the new info, and then convert back.

    posted a message on Write players name on a sign with /setblock?

    Here's a couple examples that I modified from a map I'm making. They currently work in snapshot 15w47c.


    First one places a new sign. Second one edits an existing sign. 1.9 will be using strict JSON parsing which means if there are strings inside strings they must be escaped with \. Text1:" starts a string, so all the quotes inside the tag become \". Also, most values and tags are text strings so almost everything gets escaped. These signs do player names with player selection, colors, bold, and multiple lines.

    Hope these examples help.


    For these exact commands to work you would need to do:

    /scoreboard objectives add testing dummy

    /scoreboard players set (some player name or selector) testing 10

    And of course put the commands into command blocks (too long for chat).


    The spaces inside Text3:"[{\"test\":\" \"}]" aren't required. I just put them in to help visualize the output.

    Something else that's important is the boolean values like: \"underlined\":true aren't in quotes.


    /setblock -14490 65 -4607 minecraft:standing_sign 8 replace {Text1:"[{\"selector\":\"@p[score_testing_min=10,score_testing=10]\"},{\"text\":\" got a \"},{\"text\":\"special\",\"color\":\"green\",\"underlined\":true}]",Text2:"[{\"text\":\"achievement:\"}]",Text3:"[{\"text\":\" \"}]",Text4:"[{\"text\":\"Kitchen Sink\",\"color\":\"dark_red\",\"bold\":true}]"}


    /blockdata -14489 65 -4608 {Text1:"[{\"selector\":\"@p[score_testing_min=10,score_testing=10]\"},{\"text\":\" got a special\"}]",Text2:"[{\"text\":\"achievement:\"}]",Text3:"[{\"text\":\" \"}]",Text4:"[{\"text\":\"Changed Sign\",\"color\":\"blue\",\"bold\":true}]"}
