How to Enable And Use Command Blocks

This article will show you how to enable and use command blocks on your Minecraft server.

For this tutorial, you need to be an OP. If you don’t know how to add yourself as an OP, please follow our guide: How to: OP Yourself on Your Minecraft Server.

Also, please note that to be able to use command blocks you need to be in creative, which can be done by using the following command:
/gamemode creative

❓ What Are Command Blocks ❓

Command blocks are actual in-game blocks that can execute commands. So you can let a block run a command instead of yourself.

Note that command blocks can not be obtained through survival, but only in creative.

Enabling Command Blocks In Your Server

Command Blocks are disabled by default. You can enable them in your server settings:

  1. Log in to your Multicraft panel here and stop your server.

  1. Click on Files, then go to Config Files.

  1. Click on Server Settings.

  1. Find Enable Command Blocks and set it to Enabled.

  1. Click on Save and start your server.

Make sure to click “Save” before leaving these settings.

You just enabled command blocks on your server.

Getting a Command Block

There is no way to craft a command block, so you need to use the “give” command from Minecraft but depending on the version you run the command format can change.

  • For version below 1.12 (ex. 1.8, 1.9, 1.10, 1.11, 1.12) you need enter the command to give someone a command block.

/give <player_name> 137

Replace <player_name>` with the username of the player.

  • For version above 1.12 (ex. 1.13, 1.14, 1.15, 1.16) you need enter the command to give someone a command block.

/give <player_name> minecraft:command_block

Replace <player_name>` with the username of the player.

You can also execute this command through your server console. Just remember that you don’t want to use the slash / in your Multicraft server console.

In this example, we used @p in Minecraft to give ourselves a command block.

Example: /give @p minecraft:command_block

Using Target Selectors With Command Blocks

A target selector is a syntax used to target a player or entity in Minecraft.

  • @p – Targets the nearest player.
  • @r – Targets a random player.
  • @a – Targets all players.
  • @e – Targets all entities.
  • @s – Target yourself.
