Features[edit | edit source]
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[edit | edit source]
MC 1.8 Version[edit | edit source]
The MC 1.8 Version 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.
Hermitcraft Version[edit | edit source]
In the Hermitcraft version, modified armour stands had to be crafted with a custom crafter.
