This module allows much more modification of armour stands.


To modify an armour stand, write one of the codes in a book and quill, and throw it at the armour stand's feet. Multiple codes can modify the armour stand at the same time, as long as each code is written on a separate page of the book and quill. If a page has extra text other than an acceptable code, that page will be ignored.

Previous Versions

MC 1.8 Version

The MC 1.8 Version did not have achievements. Additionally, to add arms to an armour stand, 2 sticks would be thrown at the armour stand. The sticks would disappear and the armour stand would gain arms. Throwing a pair of shears at an armour stand would cause it to become small. The shears will not be consumed or damaged. The book and quill feature was not in this version.

MC 1.9-1.12 Version

In the MC 1.9-1.12 versions, the advancements were actually a simulated achievement, using tellraw to show the message. This has been transferred to advancements upon the release of the 1.13 version. The "invisible" and "visible" tags were not implemented in this version.

Hermitcraft Version

In the Hermitcraft version, modified armour stands had to be crafted with a custom crafter.
