The Solar System Command Block for Minecraft 1.8


The Solar System command block utilizes a pair of blocks to bring a miniaturized version of our solar system to your Minecraft world. This includes the 9 (or 8) planets, the sun they revolve around and more. This is actually brought into the world using a spawn egg, perhaps because making it a naturally spawning thing would cause more than 1 to appear and seriously lag up your world in no time. This shrunken solar system actually looks pretty huge compared to you and the rest of the Earth you’re standing on, so don’t think it’s too small just because it’s not to scale.

With almost 147 custom command blocks included in The Solar System command block, you might think it would take a long time to move all the necessary commands into Minecraft and enjoy the content. That’s not the case here though. You only need two in fact, and the first and second commands can literally be imported in seconds, so if you wanted to try out this command block, you could do it right now if you chose. That’s really the best thing about command blocks – unlike mods they are much easier to install and their effects aren’t universal, modifying just one map rather than all saved maps.
