Preliminary information

Before going into the details of the procedure on how to have the Command Block on Minecraft , I think it may interest you to know more about this possibility.

Well, the Command Block, also called command block, allows users to generate certain objects and execute particular commands, able to “fix” the elements of the game. Said this way it may seem complex, but in reality it is all very simple: by pressing on these blocks, you can type a command of any type and carry out the most disparate actions.

Just to give you some practical examples, you might think about having the Command Block “generate” an armor stand with a rotation that would not usually be allowed by Minecraft. Plus, you can use this ability to craft items that aren’t directly inside your inventory and more.

Normally, to activate a Command Block you just need to use a redstone block. However, when interacting with the block, you can choose several options. In particular, you can choose the way in which it will perform the action ( PulseChain or Repetition ), the condition (if set to Conditional, the block executes its command if the one next to it has also performed action successfully) and what it takes to activate it ( Redstone or Always On ).

In short, through this particular object you can create structures that are particularly beautiful to see, which will leave your friends speechless.
