Minecraft Enderman mod | How to get Enderman powers

Minecraft Enderman mod has been created which basically lets you steal their powers wholesale. While it’s not exactly perfect, it’s pretty darn close to letting you enjoy all of the upsides of an Enderman in Minecraft — and all of the downsides, too.

The mod was created by /u/Henry_Cat735 and submitted to the /r/Minecraft subreddit. Best of all, it’s not a mod that requires any kind of external code or files — you can make the magic happen simply through the use of command blocks.

How to use the Minecraft Enderman mod

Activating this Minecraft Enderman mod requires the use of Command Blocks, so the first thing you’ll need to know is that it’s not going to work in Survival. You’re going to need to be playing in Creative Mode, Survival Mode with cheats, or have admin access on a server.

You’re also going to need to know how to work with command blocks. If you’ve never done that before, it’s going to require typine in some commands in chat! Here are the steps you need to undertake for the whole process as noted in this Pastebin file posted by /u/Henry_Cat735 on Reddit.

  1. Spawn a command block using this command:
    • /give @s minecraft:command_block
  2. Enter the following command into the command block you just spawned:
    • /give @p minecraft:player_head{AttributeModifiers:[{Slot:”head”, AttributeName:”generic.maxHealth”, Name:”generic.maxHealthg”, Amount:20, Operation:0, UUIDLeast:1, UUIDMost:1}],SkullOwner:”MHF_enderman”,tag:”enderman”,display:{Name:'{“text”:”Enderman Head”,”color”:”dark_purple”}’}}
  3. Place a Redstone torch on the command block to activate it.
  4. This will give you a special Endermen head.

Now that you have the head, your health will be buffed slightly. However, activating these powers requires the addition of several other commands.

The following commands need to run on a loop, so you’ll have to put one command in one command block each and ensure that each of them are hooked up to a repeating Redstone clock. You can also pick and choose your powers!
