Java Edition 18w02a
January 10, 2018
- Added the new block tag
- Added Cave Sound 19.
- Now have an entity ID,
- This ID can only be used for testing, summoning is not possible.
- Now use a namespaced ID for their motive.
- Has been simplified:
/teleport <entity>does not allow rotation or facing, and teleport to the entity.
/teleport <x y z>does not allow rotation or facing, and teleport to the position.
/teleport <entity1> <entity2>does not allow rotation or facing, and will teleport entity1 to entity2.
/teleport <entity> <x y z> [<yRot> <xRot>]will teleport <entity> to that position with optional rotation.
/teleport <entity> <x y z> facing [<xFacing> <yFacing> <zFacing>]will teleport <entity> to that position facing another position.
/teleport <entity1> <x y z> facing entity <entityFacing> [feet|eyes]will teleport entity1 to that position facing entityFacing 's feet or eyes (defaults to feet).
- Teleporting to an entity in another dimension is now allowed.
- Added new sub-commands to
/executeto allow for more control over commands.
facing <x y z>will run the command as though the executor is facing
x y z.
facing entity <entity> (eyes|feet)will run the command as though the executor is facing the entity's eyes or feet.
offset <x y z>has been renamed to
positioned x y z.
positioned as <entity>will change the command position (x y z) but nothing else.
rotated as <entity>or
rotated y xwill run the command as though the executor is rotated in that direction.
in (overworld|the_end|the_nether)will run the command as though it's in that dimension.
at <entity>will change the dimension, position and rotation of the command to match that entity.
(if|unless) score <name> <objective> matches <range>will test for a score in a range (ie
anchored (feet|eyes)will make the rest of this command use feet or eyes for ^ ^ ^ coordinates or facing commands.
- Server commands (functions, console, rcon) now run from world spawn in the Overworld, instead of at
- Error messages
- Errors during a command are now a nicer error message (with a tooltip for more info).
