  1. Ok, so I want to place mini versions of blocks in the air. How would I go about doing that without having to use armorstands(holding items in hand) if it's even possible.

  2. @MGlolenstine
    I don't know of any way to do this without armour stands. What's the big problem with them?
  3. Ah... I don't know... I jist want them to be stored in a xyz coords, not whole rotation and position and other stuff ;)
    1. position is xyz (and world)
    2. you don't need to store the rotation
    3. you can make them invisible and disable gravity: it's the perfect solution for your problem
    Here is a small project of me where I used that concept to make smaller (+ moveable and rotateable) blocks:
    look at 1:15

    The distance between each armorstand to make the blocks flush is around 0.62
    Zenya4 and Zombie_Striker like this.
  4. thanks! How would I resize the blocks? if that even is possible...

    You can resize them by either adding the block to the armorstand's head (which should be close to 0.5 the size of a block) or add it to their hands (which is 0.25 the size of a block.)
  6. Ah, I thought, that I could resize it as much as I wanted... Thanks to all of you!
  7. You can also use armorstand.setSmall(...) to resize the block
  8. Thanks!!!!

    So the setSmall only takes a boolean as an argument. How would I set it to a desired scale?
