MBE - Max's Block Entity

system

Introduction

Sourced By Bedrock Commands Community Discord

This method, developed by Reddit user u/Maxed_Out10 allows you to create near-perfect entity replications of any Minecraft block using armour stands and some sequential /playanimation commands.

To preserve credits to the creator, the community termed this method as "Max's Block Entity" or MBE for short.

Points to Note

  1. This method uses 1 armour stand per block entity. Therefore, too many armour stands (like any entity) can contribute to server lag.
  2. Players will still be able to pass through them as well as interact with them if not restricted.
  3. While the block entity may appear in one spot, it's actual hitbox will have a slight offset.

Video Demonstration

Setup

To be typed in chat:

  1. /summon armor_stand Grumm
    • It is necessary to name it 'Grumm' to avoid inverted block textures.
  2. /execute as @e [type= armor_stand, name=Grumm, c=1] at @s run tp @s ~~~ 260
    • This will align the MBE to the normal Minecraft block grid. ㅤ

TIP

  • Crouch & right-click (on mcpe: long press) the armor stand 6 times to place it in Pose 7
    • Doing this negates the need to use the 2nd command in the system.
    • Only use this if you wish to reduce one command from the system.

System

Note: adding a delay of 100-200 ticks is recommended.

Purpose Of Each Command

  1. Hides the armour stand body.
  2. Automatically sets the armour stand pose to 7 for arms alignment. Skip this command you prefer to do it manually.
  3. Required command. Increases size to present as mini-block.
  4. Optional command. Increases size to present as full-block.
  5. Optional command. Aligns the full-block size MBE properly.
    • Skip 4 & 5 if you do not need full-block size MBE.
  6. Locks in place to prevent fall in case block underneath is removed.

Rotations & Alignments

Note: These rotation commands are to be executed only once through a command block.
