Commands

clone

The clone command now supports specifying the source and target dimensions. New syntax:

clone [from ] [to ] ...

Parameters: - sourceDimension: id of dimension to clone from - targetDimension: id of dimension to clone to

data

New source available: - string [path] [start] [end] - reads a value as text, resulting in a string value

execute

execute if|unless

New conditions available for the execute if|unless sub-command:

  • execute if|unless loaded - checks if the position given is fully loaded (in regard to both blocks and entities)
  • execute if|unless dimension - checks if the execution is in a matching dimension

Parameters: - pos: Block position to check - dimension: A dimension id

execute on

New execute sub-command for selecting entities based on relation to the current executing entity: - execute on

Relations: - vehicle - entity that the executing entity is riding - passengers - all entities directly riding the executing entity (no sub-passengers) - controller - entity that is controlling the executing entity (for example: first passenger in a boat) - owner - owner of the executing entity, if it is a tameable animal (like cats, wolves or parrots) - leasher - entity leading the executing entity with a leash (might be a leash knot in case of being attached to a fence) - target - attack target for the executing entity - attacker - last entity that damaged the executing entity in the previous 5 seconds

If the relation is not applicable to the executing entity or there are no entities matching it, selector returns zero elements.

title

weather

  • The duration of the weather change now matches the game's regular weather cycle if not specified

Game Rules

  • Added commandModificationBlockLimit, controlling the maximum number of blocks changed in one execution of clone, fill and fillbiome

Chat components

Translation fallback

Added an optional fallback field to translate text components.
