This module is a Stand Alone Module. It does not require any other module to function properly.

This module adds some of the functionality available with commands to armour stands in survival minecraft.

Details Edit

This module focuses on adding a wide range of extra functionality to armour stands. There are many ways that this module achieves it in separate versions, whether from custom crafting or writeable books. The 1.9 version also uses expansion packs to further increase possibilities.

Expansion Packs Edit

Expansion packs are able to add more commands to 1.9 Better Armour Stands books to increase the functionality of the book. The only current expansion pack is the Poses Pack.

1.8 Version Edit

Arms can be added to any placed armour stand by throwing two sticks stacked together at its feet. This will consume the sticks and give the armour stand arms. Right-click an armour stand with arms with a held item to make it hold that item in its hand.

Throwing a pair of shears at an armour stand will shrink it to the tiny variant. The shears will not be consumed or take damage and can be picked back up.

To remove changes to an armour stand break it and place it again.

Hermitcraft Server Edit

The Hermitcraft release of this module has been completely re-done so that the armour stands can be crafted using a Custom Crafter instead of having things thrown at them. This was going to be released publicly, but was then replaced by the current 1.9 version.

Place any armor stand into a Custom Crafter and use the following recipes to modify how it appears when you place it. (This only worked in the Hermitcraft version! Look for the 1.9 version below.)

Name Ingredients Custom Crafter
Small Armour Stand Shears, Armour Stand
Armed Armour Stand Stick, Armour Stand
Small Armed Armour Stand Shears, Armed Armour Stand
Small Armed Armour Stand Stick, Small Armour Stand

1.9+ Version Edit

The 1.9+ version of this module acts similarly to the original version but with far more functionality. Commands can be written into a book and quill item and thrown at an armorstand to change one or more properties at once. Players can write one or more of the following commands, one on each page:

Command Description
default Resets armorstand completely to regular armorstand position
no gravity Turns off gravity
gravity Turns on gravity
arms Gives the armour stand arms
no arms Removes the arms
small Makes the armour stand tiny
tall Makes the armour stand the regular height
no base Removes the baseplate

no turn Stops the armour stand rotating
turn right Slowly rotates the armour stand counter-clockwise

The module is available in several languages, which change what you type into the book.
