Minecraft Monster Spawners

Update for Minecraft 1.9: the syntax for the mob spawner commands have been changed starting in Minecraft 1.9

You can read the rest of this blog post for all the examples, but the main key difference is that the EntityId tag has been removed and you need to do SpawnData:{id: EntityIdHere} instead, replacing "EntityIdHere" with the entity ID you want (Zombie, Skeleton, PigZombie, VillagerGolem, etc.)

So, for the /setblock command:

Old way: /setblock ~ ~ ~ mob_spawner 0 replace {EntityId:Zombie}
New way: /setblock ~ ~ ~ mob_spawner 0 replace {SpawnData:{id:Zombie}}

And for the /give command:

Old way: /give @p mob_spawner 1 0 {BlockEntityTag:{EntityId:Skeleton}, display:{Name:Skeleton Spawner}}
New way: /give @p mob_spawner 1 0 {BlockEntityTag:{SpawnData:{id:Skeleton}}, display:{Name:Skeleton Spawner}}

So when you see examples below, translate them into the new format for Minecraft 1.9. I may eventually write a new version of this blog post that contains only 1.9 commands, but for now you'll have to rewrite them manually.

Edit 2: there seems to be a bug in 1.9 where a spawner given with the /give command will only spawn its monster one time before reverting to a pig spawner. The SpawnPotentials seems to be the culprit; when the block is placed it gets initialized to a list that only includes pigs. The list is supposed to be empty by default, so explicitly setting it to empty seems to work:

/give @p mob_spawner 1 0 {BlockEntityTag:{SpawnData:{id:Skeleton},SpawnPotentials:[]}}

The original blog post follows.

--Updated on 3/17/2016


Minecraft 1.7 added the commands /summon, /setblock, and an extended syntax for /give, so that you could summon any entity, and attach a ton of NBT Tags on it to control attributes like what equipment it's wearing or whether it's invulnerable. ;)

I was excited about this because not only could I spawn an Enderdragon in the overworld (this never ends well), but it would open up the possibility to just give myself custom monster spawners, like those typically found in a zombie/skeleton/spider dungeon.

Unfortunately, the /give command doesn't seem to allow you to add a monster spawner to your inventory. At most, you'll get a Pig Spawner, which has always been the default monster if you would /give yourself a spawner in the past. But, if you use /setblock you can just set a block to be a monster spawner and do it that way. Update: since writing this I found the syntax for giving a mob spawner with /give. Example:

/give @p mob_spawner 1 0 {BlockEntityTag:{EntityId:Skeleton}, display:{Name:Skeleton Spawner}}
This gives a Skeleton Spawner in your inventory. The display: stuff is just to give it a custom name, otherwise it will call itself "Mob Spawner" in your inventory. If you're gonna carry multiple spawners, the names will help differentiate them. Everything inside the BlockEntityTag part are the same tags from the /setblock examples below.

Now back to the original post...

The Usual Monsters

Pictured above are your "naturally occurring" monster spawners along the bottom: Blaze (in Nether Fortresses), Skeleton, Zombie, Spider, and Cave Spider (in abandoned mineshafts). I've also created spawners along the top for: Magma Cube, Slime, Zombie Pigman, Creeper, and Enderman.

The basic command syntax is along these lines:

/setblock ~ ~ ~ mob_spawner 0 destroy {EntityId:Zombie}
Replace the value for EntityId for any other valid entity. There's a list of Entity IDs on the Minecraft Wiki. You can create a monster spawner for pretty much every monster in the game, including the bosses like the Enderdragon and Wither.

The Bosses

/setblock ~ ~ ~ mob_spawner 0 destroy {EntityId:EnderDragon}
/setblock ~ ~ ~ mob_spawner 0 destroy {EntityId:WitherBoss}
Things to watch out for: the Enderdragon will destroy every block it touches except for Bedrock, Obsidian, and End Stone (a.k.a. the only three types of blocks that naturally occur in the End Dimension), so it will destroy its own spawner, and if you create one in the overworld or the Nether, it will ruin everything it touches. You can mitigate this by turning off monster griefing with the command /gamerule mobGriefing false.

Giants!

With this command you can also create a spawner for the Giant. This monster has been in the game for ages but never officially used. It's a super-huge zombie. However, I couldn't get this spawner to actually create a Giant for me. :( Your mileage may vary. You'll probably be better off summoning it directly with /summon Giant.

/setblock ~ ~ ~ mob_spawner 0 destroy {EntityId:Giant}
Horses!

You can also create a mob spawner for horses! (edit/warning: this worked for me when I originally wrote this post, but others have reported that horse spawners tend to crash their games. I can reproduce this behavior now too in Minecraft 1.7.10 and a few others I tried (1.7.9, 1.7.2). There's a Minecraft bug ticket for this. YMMV. It seems to work in snapshot 14w31a (screenshot) so may be fixed for 1.8)

The zombie and skeletal horses aren't naturally occurring in-game, and they cannot be tamed normally like other horses. You'll want to make sure the "Tame" flag is set when spawning these so that players can ride them. They can equip saddles, but not armor.

Zombie: /setblock ~ ~ ~ mob_spawner 0 destroy {EntityId:EntityHorse,SpawnData:{Type:3,Tame:1}}
Skeletal: /setblock ~ ~ ~ mob_spawner 0 destroy {EntityId:EntityHorse,SpawnData:{Type:4,Tame:1}}
Again, warning: horse spawners with SpawnData may crash your game. It's a known bug in several versions of Minecraft. If this happens, and your game managed to save the world before the crash, so that it instantly crashes again when rejoining the game, you'll have to use a third-party tool like MCEdit to delete the offending spawner.

That "SpawnData" attribute from the previous command is how you can attach NBT data to the spawned entity. Horses take a Type attribute and Tame, among some others. You can see all the relevant NBT tags at "Chunk format" on the Minecraft Wiki.

Here's a more advanced command that creates a Zombie spawner where the zombies are all equipped with Diamond Swords. I found this one from the Minecraft forums (I don't know or care too much about the NBT format; I usually just create simple spawners as listed above in this post).

/setblock ~ ~1 ~ minecraft:mob_spawner 0 replace {EntityId:Zombie,SpawnData:{Equipment:[{id:276,Count:1}]},SpawnPotentials:[{Type:Zombie,Weight:1,Properties:{Equipment:[{},{},{},{},{id:46,Count:1}]}}],SpawnCount:2}
Note: You'll have to paste that into a Command Block (/give <your_name> command_block) because the command is too long for the chat console. Attach a button to the command block with Shift+RightClick, push it and the spawner will appear above the block.

Custom Zombies

@need a spawner
The only way I know of to make an item spawner is with MC edit. You toss the item on the ground from your inventory, save and exit. Open MC edit, highlight the item (shown as an invisible block), click filter, open the drop down menu, click create spawner, check the box and click filter. Save, re-enter your world and the spawner will pop out that item. 1 - 4 every about 20 - 30 secs. Set up Hoppers under it to a chest and let it fill up.

DON"T USE THE SET BLOCK COMMAND FOR THE SKELETAL OR ZOMBIE HORSE SPAWNERS!!!!!! it will crash your game! I used it, now (like the guy who said he can't stay in his game longer than five seconds) it will crash your world every time the mobspawner block renders.
If there is a fix for this!!! PLEASE LET ME KNOW!!!

What version of the game are you using? I took those screenshots of the skeletal/horse spawners in-game on one of the 1.7.x versions and it didn't crash for me. Are you on the 1.8 snapshots? Those are highly unstable so don't be surprised when things crash snapshot worlds (recently, item frames crashed worlds in the snapshots).

Use MCEdit to remove the spawner from the world if you need to fix it.

I have no idea how you people can have trouble copying and pasting these commands. They all work on Minecraft 1.7.

  • Make sure you're on Minecraft 1.7 or higher

  • Make sure you're on Minecraft 1.7 or higher

  • They don't work on Minecraft 1.6

  • When you select the command to copy it, make sure that you ONLY select the command, the full command, and nothing BUT the command.

  • This means the / at the beginning all the way up to the very last } should be highlighted before you hit Ctrl-C.

  • If you didn't highlight enough of the command, so some }'s are missing, it's a syntax error, the command won't run right in Minecraft.

  • If you copied too much (like your hand slipped and you copied 2 more sentences of text from the page), syntax error, command won't work right.

  • Some commands are TOO LONG to paste into the Minecraft chat console. After hitting Ctrl-V, if the command doesn't end with the same } symbols you saw on the page, it's TOO LONG. Test it by typing "AAA" at the end, if it doesn't let you type anything, the command is too long.

  • IF the command is too long, give yourself a Command Block with /give <your name> command_block, replacing <your name> with your Minecraft username, without the < or >. For example my Minecraft username is caskir, so I type /give caskir command_block

  • Be in creative mode and make sure you're the server OP and place the command block, then right click it, paste in the long command, hit OK, then attach a button or something to your command block to activate it (hold down shift and right-click to place the button). Then right click the button to activate the command block.

Snow Golem's entity name is SnowMan.

/setblock ~ ~ ~ mob_spawner 0 destroy {EntityId:SnowMan}

As mentioned twice so far on this page, consult the Entity IDs wiki page for the list of all entity IDs.

In case anyone else is too lazy, here are the "tricky" entity names that don't match the in-game names.

  • Wither Skeleton is still a Skeleton (but with SkeletonType:1 as its SpawnData)
  • Zombie Pigman is a PigZombie
  • Magma Cube is a LavaSlime
  • Wither is a WitherBoss
  • Mooshroom is a MushroomCow
  • Snow Golem is a SnowMan
  • Ocelot is a Ozelot
  • Iron Golem is a VillagerGolem
  • Horse is an EntityHorse

Other mobs that have a space in their names: just remove the space, capitalize all words. Cave Spider is a CaveSpider, Ender Dragon is an EnderDragon, etc.

Posted on Thursday, May 22 2014 @ 09:47:54 AM by Noah Petherbridge.

The spawner still follows the normal spawn rules for the entity inside it. So for passive animals like cows and sheep, there has to be grass around the spawner and a high light level (or be facing the sky). I'm not sure if wolves have an extra requirement of needing to be in a certain biome like a taiga forest though. Hostile monsters need darkness to spawn.

PrimedTnt has no natural spawn conditions so good luck getting the spawner to produce them. You may need some extra NBT tags to get that to work.

@powercamel:

Here's an example spawner that will produce Skeletons riding on top of Skeletal Horses. You'll need to paste this command into a command block, because it's too long to paste in the chat console.

/setblock ~ ~1 ~ mob_spawner 0 replace {EntityId: Skeleton, SpawnData: {Riding: {id: EntityHorse, Type: 4, Tame: 1}}}

Screenshot: http://imgur.com/Rz67PZP

With that specific command, the Skeleton won't be equipped with a bow. Here's a version that equips the Skeleton with his standard bow:

/setblock ~ ~1 ~ mob_spawner 0 replace {EntityId: Skeleton, SpawnData: {Equipment:[{id:261,Count:1}], Riding: {id: EntityHorse, Type: 4, Tame: 1}}}

Also note, the mob on the bottom (the skeletal horse in this case) dictates where the stack of mobs wanders off to. So the skeleton jockey won't run after the player, it will just wander randomly and shoot you with its bow, because the horse's AI is to just wander randomly.

The only "neutral" mob whose AI is able to be taken over by its rider is the Chicken, when being ridden by a Baby Zombie.

Zombie riding a pig (untested, should work, might need to paste in a command block):

/setblock ~ ~ ~ mob_spawner 0 replace {EntityId: Zombie, SpawnData: {Riding: {id: Pig}}}

The zombie won't control the pig's movements though. The only mob whose AI can be overridden when riding is the chicken, and only when being ridden by a baby zombie.

@Tommy:

  • Wither Skeleton Spawner (no weapon)

    /setblock ~ ~ ~ mob_spawner 0 replace {EntityId: Skeleton, SpawnData:{SkeletonType:1}}

  • Wither Skeleton Spawner (with stone sword)*

    /setblock ~ ~ ~ mob_spawner 0 replace {EntityId: Skeleton, SpawnData:{SkeletonType:1, Equipment: [{id: 272},{},{},{},{}]}}

  • Chicken Jockey

    /setblock ~ ~ ~ mob_spawner 0 replace {EntityId: Zombie, SpawnData:{IsBaby:1, Riding: {id:Chicken}}}

  • Pigman Jockey*

    /setblock ~ ~ ~ mob_spawner 0 replace {EntityId: PigZombie, SpawnData:{IsBaby:1, Riding: {id:Chicken}}}

* The wither skeleton w/ sword and the Pigman Jockey will need a command block because the commands are too long to paste into chat. You'll want to change the beginning of the command (the /setblock ~ ~ ~ part) to summon the spawner somewhere else so it doesn't replace the command block itself, i.e. /setblock ~ ~1 ~ will make the spawner appear on top of the command block.

If you're redstoning, you can also use the /summon command to instantly summon desired monsters instead of creating mob spawner blocks. It might be a better option for a mob arena depending on your requirements (I'm imagining one arena room area, and some redstone to summon mobs in waves of increasing difficulty).

i.e. the standard wither skeleton w/ stone sword using the /summon command:

/summon Skeleton ~ ~ ~ {SkeletonType:1, Equipment:[{id:272},{},{},{},{}]}

Just take the NBT tags from the "SpawnData" part of a mob spawner and put it at the end of the /summon command.

Hey, I've seen that people are having trouble and I KNOW WHAT THE PROBLEM IS!!! They type / to open up the chat bar, then they paste. But the problem is that then there are TWO /es! So that is probably what your problem is.

Now, for kirsle, is it possible to make a giant-riding-a-ghast spawner? IF SO, tell me what I should say.

Posted on Monday, June 30 2014 @ 05:13:46 PM by Noah Petherbridge.

Something like this, in theory:

/setblock ~ ~ ~ mob_spawner 0 replace {EntityId: Giant, Riding:{id:Ghast}}

But since the Giant has no valid spawn conditions naturally, it might not spawn anything from a mob spawner (I couldn't get normal Giant spawners to produce anything). Some other NBT tags might work but I don't know which ones for sure. I saw somebody who made PrimedTnt spawners that summoned the TNT a good distance away from the spawner (inside a "volcano" in fact), and PrimedTnt doesn't spawn under any natural conditions either, so there should be some way to force spawning.

Tile Entity Format

The /summon command can for sure summon what you want. Depending on your needs you might be able to just build a redstone contraption with a command block.

/summon Giant ~ ~ ~ {Riding:{id:Ghast}}

So I'm trying to make a custom Pig spawner for my mini game world and unfortunately it refuses to spawn. The problem is not in the command because when I change the entity type into something hostile (like a zombie or a skeleton) the command works perfectly and to all the permitters that I set up. This is the command I'm using at the moment and if anyone could tell my why it refuses to spawn that would be very helpful, thanks! (Here is the command: /setblock ~ ~1 ~ minecraft:mob_spawner 0 replace {EntityId:Zombie,SpawnCount:2,SpawnRange:3,RequiredPlayerRange:64,Delay:10,MinSpawnDelay:10,MaxSpawnDelay:100,MaxNearbyEntities:2} and i tried running on multiple versions and none worked

Normal spawn rule requirements apply to mob spawners.

Animals like pigs, sheep, chickens, horses, they can only spawn on grass blocks with a high light level (or facing the sky).

It's why in the original blog post, I switched from a desert superflat to a plains one to show screenshots of the horse spawner. The mobs wouldn't spawn in the desert due to the lack of grass.

Posted on Tuesday, July 08 2014 @ 10:34:06 AM by Noah Petherbridge.

I decided to look into it finally. From the wiki:

In the code, giants need to have a light level both less than 8 and greater than 11 to spawn, but since that can't happen, they don't spawn from monster spawners. However, this spawn condition can be bypassed with a custom spawner, if it attempts to spawn an entity with valid spawn conditions riding a giant.

So a giant won't spawn by itself from a mob spawner since its spawn conditions are impossible. But spawn something else that's riding the giant and you can do it. Something like,

/setblock ~ ~ ~ mob_spawner 0 replace {EntityId: PigZombie, Riding:{id:Giant}}

And, pigs can't wear armor no matter what, so a mob spawner can't spawn a pig with armor. Same goes for all other mobs except for skeletons, zombies, and giants.

Ok my name is Anonymous and I love Minecraft. I play it neally every day so I think I should know what I am doing. Ok get a command block and type /see thru <minecraftname> (do not do yours!) (ONLY WORKS ON MULTIPLAYER) then click DONE and put a redstone block next to it and it should make you be able to control someone elses body WITHOUT MODS or PLUGINS! Only works on 1.7.4:1 (First snapshot of 1.7.4)

Confirmed that horse spawners do crash the game in 1.7.10.

Here's a Minecraft bug ticket about it for more information. Hopefully it'll be fixed soon. ;)

In the mean time you can use command blocks to /summon the horses if you need them for something. Mob spawner-like behavior could be accomplished by a redstone circuit that uses /testfor to find players within a certain range of a coordinate, then some repeaters for delay, then /summon the horse.

Posted on Wednesday, July 30 2014 @ 02:47:13 PM by Noah Petherbridge.

Update: tried the latest snapshot (14w31a) and spawned a skeleton horse spawner and it didn't crash the game.

Screenshot

Command was the typical /setblock ~ ~ ~ mob_spawner 0 replace {EntityId:EntityHorse, SpawnData:{Type:4, Tame:1}}

Hopefully this means they'll be fixed for when 1.8 is released. :)

Love the page, really useful. The command for the zombie carrying the diamond sword actually seems to work fine if you cut it short like so:
/setblock ~ ~1 ~ minecraft:mob_spawner 0 replace {EntityId:Zombie,SpawnData:{Equipment:[{id:276}]}}

this way you can paste it directly into the chat console.
hope it helps!

@Retarra:

How are you typing the commands in? That error doesn't make sense, unless you're typing something like, "/setblock ~ ~ ~ mod spawner .." or something.

The letters "mod" (with a D) should probably not even show up in the command at all, since they're mob spawners (with a B).

Make sure you type the commands carefully. Try highlighting, copying+pasting one of the commands from my blog to be sure. The command must be spelled correctly, and everything about the command is case sensitive (i.e. the block's name is mob_spawner, all lowercase, Mob_spawner or MOB_Spawner won't work. Same for entity names: Zombie with a capital Z, a lowercase zombie won't work. Or PigZombie with those capital letters, etc.)

@alex.: not that I know of. Attempting to /give a mob spawner with all these custom attributes just ended up giving me the default pig spawner.

@EntityId:Jeb_: the spider jockey is just a skeleton riding on a spider, it doesn't have its own entity ID.

This spawns a skeleton equipped with its standard bow riding on a spider. This is for Minecraft 1.8+, for older versions replace the "id:bow" with "id:261"

/setblock ~ ~ ~ mob_spawner 0 replace {EntityId:Skeleton, SpawnData: {Equipment:[{id:bow,Count:1}], Riding:{id:Spider}}}

It's a known problem with some versions of Minecraft. Horse spawners with any SpawnData tend to crash the game.

You'll need to use a third party program like MCEdit to delete the spawner.

Probably because the spawning requirements for the Slime aren't satisfied by the area you put the spawner.

Slimes only spawn in certain chunks and at certain Y coordinates. Or jungle biomes. So if you find a slime chunk and put the spawner there it should work.

Thank you so much for the tutorial! This command is so useful. As for the Giant spawner not working, Giants have a spawning code that makes them spawn at a light level greater than 11 and less than 8, meaning that they will never spawn from the monster spawner cage. You should just use /summon Giant ~ ~ ~ to summon one.

Avatar

Posted on Monday, February 09 2015 @ 12:06:14 PM by Noah Petherbridge.

Guilty.

My stab at an explanation:

  1. Giants never spawn from Giant spawners (the spawn conditions for a giant are impossible) making the spawner "harmless"
  2. The model is so large it extends quite a way outside of the spawner block (the Enderdragon and Wither share this issue; but their spawners will spawn a nasty mob that will wreck your stuff)
  3. The Giant's model lines up perfectly with a fence post placed on top of the spawner.
  4. Have a dirty mind.
  5. ???
  6. Profit.

Probably something along these lines (check mob attributes on the Minecraft wiki: http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Chunk_format#Mobs - look under PigZombie )

/setblock ~ ~ ~ mob_spawner 0 replace {EntityId: PigZombie, SpawnData: { Anger: 32767 }}

This will spawn zombie pigmen with their Anger attribute set to the maximum value, so they won't go neutral anytime soon. ;)

Untested but something like that should probably work.

How do I make a Skeleton with a skeleton horse Spawner?

Avatar

Posted on Thursday, March 05 2015 @ 03:58:31 PM by Noah Petherbridge.

Ctrl+F, "Skeleton", I already answered how to get a skeleton riding on a skeletal horse.

/setblock ~ ~1 ~ mob_spawner 0 replace {EntityId: Skeleton, SpawnData: {Equipment:[{id:261,Count:1}], Riding: {id: EntityHorse, Type: 4, Tame: 1}}}

Note that the skeleton's AI does not override the horse AI, like baby zombies do with chickens (those are a special case). The horse will wander randomly as horses do, but with a skeleton hanging out on its back shooting arrows at you.

The horses also don't despawn like hostile mobs do, so watch the entity count if you don't want server lag.

Or Google for "minecraft mob spawner generator" and find another one.

Wither skeleton is simply a Skeleton with the SkeletonType:1 attribute set.

You said in the post that you could not use [/give] to put spawners in players' inventories; You can use the {BlockEntityTag:{}} tag to allow spawners to have custom NBT upon being placed, and thereby allowing players to place custom spawners faster and more accurately, without [/setblock].


"Unfortunately, the /give command doesn't seem to allow you to add a monster spawner to your inventory."


/give @p mob_spawner 1 0 {BlockEntityTag:{EntityId:Zombie,SpawnData:{<Any mob NBT you want here>}}}

Do you know your minecraft account's UUID? Do you know how to find your UUID? Because you need that to create a tamed wolf spawner.

I can't simply give you a copy-pasteable command that will do it. It's extremely specific to the owner of the tamed wolf. Wolves can't simply be tame, they have to have an owner to be tame to.

The chunk format wiki linked in the OP has a list of all NBT tags supported for all mobs.

There are dozens of examples of commands for spawning various mobs with various NBT tags already on this page.

Wolves need an OwnerUUID tag with a value that matches the UUID of the player you want to own the wolves that spawn.

Figure it out yourself.

@qwertyuiop:

Untested:
/setblock ~ ~ ~ mob_spawner 0 replace {EntityId: Wolf, OwnerUUID:<your id>}

@Anonymous:

Mob spawners still have to follow the natural spawning rule for the mob in question. Slimes can only spawn in slime chunks below Y=40 or in swamp biomes.

@mystery?:

Probably something like this:

/setblock ~ ~ ~ mob_spawner 0 replace {EntityId:Sheep, SpawnData:{CustomName:"jeb_", CustomNameVisible:1}

Use command blocks to summon dropped diamonds.

Something along the lines of:

/summon Item ~ ~1 ~ {Item:{id:diamond,Count:1}}

Item entities have no valid spawning conditions normally, so putting them in a mob spawner won't cause it to spawn any items. You could have the spawner create an entity that is "riding" a diamond item, but that would just look silly.

Hey :)

Here are the commands for spawners I use - might help someone...not sure if they are completely correct, but they definitely work...


For normal mob or animal spawners I use inventory spawners:-
/give @p mob_spawner 1 0 {BlockEntityTag:{EntityId:Sheep}, display:{Name:Sheep Spawner}}


For custom spawners I use command blocks to create spawners:-
/setblock ~ ~1 ~ minecraft:mob_spawner 0 replace {EntityId:Item,Delay:1,SpawnCount:10,SpawnData:{Item:{id:"torch",Delay:1,SpawnRange:2,MinSpawnDelay:1,MaxSpawnDelay:3,PickupDelay:1,Count:10}}}


For Slimes I used this website ( http://chunkbase.com/apps/slime-finder#-7564793292415279691 ) to upload my level.dat file and it shows you the slime chunk coordinates in your world...I picked a chunk, & dug to "Y" level less than 40 and dug a 1 chunk room (16 blocks x 16 blocks, and about 7 blocks high, and placed a spawner in the middle of the room using the inventory spawner command:-

/give @p mob_spawner 1 0 {BlockEntityTag:{EntityId:Slime}, display:{Name:Slime Spawner}}

I surrounded the spawner with bedrock for protection, 1 block all around the spawner, and it works perfectly!

Hope Helps... :)

ok, so, the problem I have is that I am trying to create a spawner for jungle saplings, but can only get oak saplings (default:0):-

/setblock ~ ~1 ~ minecraft:mob_spawner 0 replace {EntityId:Item,Delay:1,SpawnCount:10,SpawnData:{Item:{id:"sapling",Delay:1,SpawnRange:2,MinSpawnDelay:1,MaxSpawnDelay:3,PickupDelay:1,Count:10}}}

This is because there is a secondary id number of 3 for jungle saplings, but I dont know where to add it to this command...I'm sure its a Type:3 or Type:jungle sort of configuration, but have tried many different combinations and can only get oak saplings or stone to spawn... :)

If anyone can help it would be very much appreciated !!!

Thanks Kirsle for such a wicked page !!! :)

Cheers !!!

Hey :)

Ok, so the post above was for version 1.8.9...
I have just been trying spawners in version 16w03a ( beta 1.9) in a world I created in 1.8.9 - here is what I have found:-

1 - Standard and Custom spawners already created in 1.8.9 seem to function correctly, but the original command block commands wont work anymore to create them again.

2 - I couldnt /give myself a chicken spawner anymore for some reason, although I did get a pig spawner instead each time...perhaps I'm missing something in the /give command...

The following commands are all tested as working, so should help someone...

==============
Give Command Block:-
/give @p minecraft:command_block 1
==============
Give 1 Slime Spawn Egg:-
/give @p minecraft:spawn_egg 1 0 {EntityTag:{id:"Slime"}}

THIS NO LONGER WORKS:-
/give @p minecraft:spawn_egg 64 55

==============
Command Block Only Command - Torch Spawner:-
/setblock ~ ~1 ~ minecraft:mob_spawner 0 replace {SpawnData:{id:"Item",Item:{id:torch,Count:1}},SpawnCount:1,SpawnRange:3,RequiredPlayerRange:11,Delay:1,MinSpawnDelay:1,MaxSpawnDelay:3,MaxNearbyEntities:1000}

THIS NO LONGER WORKS:-
/setblock ~ ~1 ~ minecraft:mob_spawner 0 replace {EntityId:Item,Delay:1,SpawnCount:10,SpawnData:{Item:{id:"torch",Delay:1,SpawnRange:2,MinSpawnDelay:1,MaxSpawnDelay:3,PickupDelay:1,Count:10}}}

==============
Command Block Only Command - Chicken Spawner:-
/setblock ~ ~1 ~ minecraft:mob_spawner 0 replace {SpawnData:{id:"Chicken"}}

THIS DOESNT SEEM TO WORK ANY LONGER:-
/give @p minecraft:mob_spawner 1 0 {SpawnData:{id:"Chicken"},display:{Name:Chicken Spawner}}

Please post corrections as required, thanks !!!

==============
Give 1 Jungle Sapling:-
/give @p minecraft:sapling 1 3

I Never did get this to work in a spawner...???

==============

Comments welcome :)

Cheers everyone - Cheers to Noal also !!!

Thanks @Sonix711. I heard the command syntax/NBT tags were changed for Minecraft 1.9 but didn't look up the specifics.

I'll probably make a new version of this post when 1.9 is released and update this one to refer people to the new post. This post has tons and tons of comments and it'd be nice to get a fresh start.

I'm actually surprised the torch spawner worked but not the jungle sapling spawner. My understanding of spawners were that they'd basically just increase the odds of the particular mob spawning in its vicinity, but that the spawn conditions still had to be met for that mob to spawn. For example, hostile mob spawners could be essentially disabled by putting a bunch of torches around it so that the light level isn't compatible with hostile mob spawning. Or, how passive mob spawners (sheep, pigs, etc.) would only spawn their mob if there were grass blocks nearby and a high light level.

And mob spawners such as for the Giant would never spawn a giant at all, because the giant requires light levels that are impossible (I don't remember the exact numbers offhand, but something like "light level greater than 6 and less than 4" which is an impossible situation, so no giant ever spawns). Similarly, Slime spawners would only spawn a Slime if it's in a swamp biome or in a slime chunk, at a Y coordinate where slimes normally spawn.

I wouldn't think torches would have any "natural" spawn conditions so that the spawner wouldn't produce any. That should be true for all items. I've seen people hack around it by making a mob spawner that spawns something "riding" an item (like, an invisible bat riding a diamond item). This would work because only the top mob needs to have its spawn conditions met, and anything it's riding on comes along with it.

Hey :)

Thanks for reading and thanks for comments :)

This should help...

1.8 commands:-

/give @p mob_spawner 1 0 {BlockEntityTag:{EntityId:Creeper}, display:{Name:Creeper Spawner}}

/give @p mob_spawner 1 0 {BlockEntityTag:{EntityId:Skeleton}, display:{Name:Skeleton Spawner}}

/give @p mob_spawner 1 0 {BlockEntityTag:{EntityId:Spider}, display:{Name:Spider Spawner}}

/give @p mob_spawner 1 0 {BlockEntityTag:{EntityId:Blaze}, display:{Name:Blaze Spawner}}

/give @p mob_spawner 1 0 {BlockEntityTag:{EntityId:Witch}, display:{Name:Witch Spawner}}

/give @p mob_spawner 1 0 {BlockEntityTag:{EntityId:Guardian}, display:{Name:Guardian Spawner}}

/give @p mob_spawner 1 0 {BlockEntityTag:{EntityId:Endermite}, display:{Name:Endermite Spawner}}

/give @p mob_spawner 1 0 {BlockEntityTag:{EntityId:EntityHorse}, display:{Name:Horse Spawner}}

/give @p mob_spawner 1 0 {BlockEntityTag:{EntityId:Cow}, display:{Name:Cow Spawner}}

/give @p mob_spawner 1 0 {BlockEntityTag:{EntityId:MushroomCow}, display:{Name:MCow Spawner}}

/give @p mob_spawner 1 0 {BlockEntityTag:{EntityId:Pig}, display:{Name:Pig Spawner}}

/give @p mob_spawner 1 0 {BlockEntityTag:{EntityId:Sheep}, display:{Name:Sheep Spawner}}

/give @p mob_spawner 1 0 {BlockEntityTag:{EntityId:Chicken}, display:{Name:Chicken Spawner}}

/give @p mob_spawner 1 0 {BlockEntityTag:{EntityId:Slime}, display:{Name:Slime Spawner}}

/give @p mob_spawner 1 0 {BlockEntityTag:{EntityId:Rabbit}, display:{Name:Rabbit Spawner}}

/give @p mob_spawner 1 0 {BlockEntityTag:{EntityId:Ozelot}, display:{Name:Ozelot Spawner}}

/give @p mob_spawner 1 0 {BlockEntityTag:{EntityId:Wolf}, display:{Name:Wolf Spawner}}

/give @p mob_spawner 1 0 {BlockEntityTag:{EntityId:Villager}, display:{Name:Villager Spawner}}

/give @p mob_spawner 1 0 {BlockEntityTag:{EntityId:Bat}, display:{Name:Bat Spawner}}


These commands can be run from either the chat command line or from a command block...

================

/give @p minecraft:command_block 1

================

Coal Spawner - works well when placed above hoppers that feed fuel into furnaces, although a slight pain to build...

/setblock ~ ~1 ~ minecraft:mob_spawner 0 replace {EntityId:Item,Delay:1,SpawnCount:10,SpawnData:{Item:{id:"coal",Delay:1,SpawnRange:2,MinSpawnDelay:1,MaxSpawnDelay:3,PickupDelay:1,Count:10}}}


Automatic Furnace:-

Step 4: sneak and place one hopper on the top and 1 hopper on the left side (important) of the furnace. (The top one will insert the items into the furnace, which get smelted / cooked; The hopper on the left side inputs coal into the furnace)

(really sorry - cant remember where I got Step 4 info from originally...)

==============

For 1.9 commands, please see my post above - when 1.9 comes out... :)

Hope helps... shout if any problems or whatever... :)

Hey :)

1.9 released - how about that !!! :)

Commands Update from Original Reddit Post
( https://www.reddit.com/r/bitquest/comments/48rt7u/custom_spawners_infinite_fuel_furnace_slime/ )


1.9

I don't know if you can /give Mob Spawners anymore, but this command will create the Mob Spawner using a Command Block. Change the SpawnData id as required for the particular mob you want to have spawned from the spawner.

eg - Slime Spawner ( also see further info below for Slime Spawner )

/setblock ~ ~1 ~ minecraft:mob_spawner 0 replace {SpawnData:{id:"Slime"}}

Command Block command to spawn any Item that doesn't use a seperate Type number, or just the Type:0 of that Item will spawn. Change the "{id:coal" as required for the particular item you want to have spawned from the spawner.

eg - coal

/setblock ~ ~1 ~ minecraft:mob_spawner 0 replace {SpawnData:{id:"Item",Item:{id:coal,Count:10}},SpawnCount:1,SpawnRange:2,RequiredPlayerRange:11,Delay:1,MinSpawnDelay:1,MaxSpawnDelay:3,MaxNearbyEntities:300}

To Create a Slime Spawner, its slightly more complicated as the Slimes will only spawn in specific locations, called Slime Chunks...

I used ChunkBase ( http://chunkbase.com/apps/slime-finder ) to find the Slime Chunk, then the following to make the Spawner work...


"For Slimes I used this website ( http://chunkbase.com/apps/slime-finder ) to upload my level.dat file and it shows you the slime chunk coordinates in your world...I picked a chunk, & dug to "Y" level less than 40 and dug a 1 chunk room (16 blocks x 16 blocks, and about 7 blocks high, and placed a spawner in the middle of the room using the inventory spawner command"


For 1.9 use the Command Block to create the Slime Spawner, and again, make sure the Slime Spawner is below level 40 for it to work.


Hope this is helpful... :)

Comments & Questions always welcome...

Beware the Coal Spawner in 1.9 - it's a bit mental as it tries to cover itself in Coal... perhaps a little command tweaking is required... :)

See you all on BQ 2 when its "released".

Take care.

Sonix711.

PS - I meant to mention MC Map GUI ( http://wrim.pl/mcmap/ ) not sure if BQ used this app, but its wicked for creating an over the top image of your world...

PPS - sorry about the text sizes - I was using - and = in multiples to seperate the info, and I don't think it like it... :)

what are the commands for 1.9??

Avatar
kirsle
Posted on Thursday, March 17 2016 @ 03:25:42 PM by Noah Petherbridge.

@Devin:

/setblock

For using /setblock to create a spawner block in the world, use "SpawnData:{id:Zombie}}" instead of "EntityId:Zombie" -- replace "Zombie" with whatever mob entity ID you want (several are listed on the original blog post, the rest are in the Minecraft wiki).

Old way: /setblock ~ ~ ~ mob_spawner 0 replace {EntityId:Enderman}
New way: /setblock ~ ~ ~ mob_spawner 0 replace {SpawnData:{id:Enderman}}

/give

Similarly, for the /give syntax, replace the whole "EntityId:Skeleton" part with "SpawnData:{id:Skeleton}":

Old way: /give @p mob_spawner 1 0 {BlockEntityTag:{EntityId: Skeleton}, display:{Name:Skeleton Spawner}}
New way: /give @p mob_spawner 1 0 {BlockEntityTag:{SpawnData:{id:Skeleton}}, display:{Name:Skeleton Spawner}}

Note that the /give version might need to be pasted into a command block if it's too long to type in chat normally.

I got the /give @p mob_spawner 1 0 {BlockEntityTag:{SpawnData:{id:Skeleton}}, display:{Name:Skeleton Spawner}} to work, but when I placed the block it only produced one Skeleton, then the skeleton within the spawner turned into a pig and it won't produce anything now.

@greyeyedpainter:

It looks like a bug in Minecraft 1.9. The SpawnPotentials tag is apparently initialized to include pigs, and for some reason if you don't explicitly define this tag it will get its default (pig) value, when the default should be an empty list.

Setting it explicitly to an empty list seems to fix it:

/give @p mob_spawner 1 0 {BlockEntityTag:{SpawnData:{id:Skeleton},SpawnPotentials:[]}}

@Mhelvin:

If you happen to know the exact coordinates of where the spawner was (or a rough enough idea of where it's at), and the server itself doesn't crash on startup (so you can type server commands into the console), you can use /setblock or /fill to replace the spawner with something else.

Otherwise, you may need to download the server world, use a tool like MCEdit and delete the spawner that way.

Or, upgrade your server to a newer version like 1.8 or 1.9 where the zombie horse spawner doesn't crash the game. But if you're using custom server mods that aren't supported on those versions... try the above things.

@DJAwsome56: I think if you just leave an empty EntityId, it gives you an empty spawner. Or give it an EntityId that doesn't exist. I've managed to get an empty spawner before but I forgot the details but those are some things I'd try.

Ok...there is a problem...but I have a solution... :)

===

This should get you a torch spawner:-

/setblock ~ ~1 ~ minecraft:mob_spawner 0 replace {SpawnCount:10,SpawnRange:3,RequiredPlayerRange:7,MaxNearbyEntities:300,Delay:1,MinSpawnDelay:1,MaxSpawnDelay:3,SpawnData:{id:"minecraft:item",Item:{id:torch,Count:1b}}}

===

Here's how I did it:-

1 - Go to https://mcstacker.bimbimma.com/

2 - Open another Browser tab or window and go to the above website in that tab too...trust me...

3 - In the first tab, fill in the website form to create a SetBlock Mob Spawner ( Command Type=SetBlock, Block=Monster Spawner - both are drop down lists ).

4 - In the second website tab / window, fill in the same website form to Summon an Item ( Command Type=Summon, Entity=item - both are drop down lists )

5 - Select and copy the Summon Item command from the second website tab / window and paste this command into the "Summon Command:" box on the first website tab / window.

6 - Copy the final command from the first website tab / window into the "Command Block" command line in Minecraft...

DONE !!! :)

===

This is how I generated the command for the torch spawner :)

===

NOTE:-

SpawnCount:10 = how many groups of torches to drop.
Count:1b = how many torches in a group to drop. I'm not sure what the "b" means, but its meant to be there as far as I know...

So, this spawner should drop 10 groups of 1 torch every spawn.
If you change it the other way round, ( make 10 to a 1 and make 1 to a 10 ), it should drop 1 group of 10 torches.

===

ALSO:-

This should get you an empty mob spawner that doesn't do anything, if I remember correctly from trial and error earlier... :)

/setblock ~ ~1 ~ minecraft:mob_spawner 0 replace {SpawnData:{id:"minecraft:torch"}}

===

Hope helps... shout if any probs...I have only tested with this command so far...

Take care everyone...
Cheers.

Hey :)

Just a quick addition...

Sand and Red Sand are both item "sand", but have different data values - Sand = 0, Red Sand = 1...if no data value is used, then the default of 0 is used, as far as I know...

If you make a spawner that has an extra data value, like sand or red sand, then you need to add Damage:1 to the command... or Damage: and the number for whatever number the item data value is...

eg - Sand:-

/setblock ~ ~0 ~1 minecraft:mob_spawner 0 replace {SpawnCount:1,SpawnRange:3,RequiredPlayerRange:11,MaxNearbyEntities:50,Delay:1,MinSpawnDelay:1,MaxSpawnDelay:3,SpawnData:{id:"minecraft:item",Item:{id:sand,Count:1b}}}

eg - RED Sand:-

/setblock ~ ~0 ~1 minecraft:mob_spawner 0 replace {SpawnCount:1,SpawnRange:3,RequiredPlayerRange:11,MaxNearbyEntities:50,Delay:1,MinSpawnDelay:1,MaxSpawnDelay:3,SpawnData:{id:"minecraft:item",Item:{id:sand,Damage:1,Count:1b}}}

Hope helps...Shout if any probs...Have Fun... :)

Hey :)

This should work for you - I'm actually on here trying to figure something else out, spawner wise, and just saw your comment... :) bet you put iron_golem instead of villager_golem - well, thats the mistake I still make anyway... :) you should be able to alter the command as required fairly easily... I think it gets a bit lagggy when you have the required player range or the required spawn range too large...suck it and see... :)

/setblock ~ ~1 ~ mob_spawner 0 replace {SpawnCount:1,MaxNearbyEntities:5,SpawnRange:64,Delay:30,MinSpawnDelay:30,MaxSpawnDelay:60,RequiredPlayerRange:15,EntityId:villager_golem,SpawnData:{id:villager_golem}}

Normally I get an email when someone comments, so not sure what went wrong this time... :)

Hope helps....shout if any probs...
Cheers :)
