Minecraft Give Command Generator

The give command is one of the most complicated and powerful commands in Minecraft. This tool is a simple Minecraft give command generator for generating complex commands. Paste this command into chat or a command block and you can generate the item, but remember you will need to be op (admin).

Commands are for vanilla (java or bedrock) edition, but can also work for modded Minecraft. So far it includes, item name and lore, item enchantments and the more advance item attributes which can add buffs or debuffs for users that hold or wear an item. More is coming, see the todo list below.

Enchantments: Most enchantments will only work on certain tools, weapons or armour. Be sure to choose the correct enchantments. You can minecraft give sword with enchantments or minecraft give armor generator, choose those items from the minecraft give item list and choose enchantments from the advanced options. There is a huge number of minecraft give enchanted items combinations.

Color Text: Minecraft 1.13 Java added colored text for items, this was a limited 16 color pallet. In 1.14 this was added to lore. As of 1.16 any text color possible.

Attributes: These can be applied to any item, when a user holds or wears that item they will receive a buff or debuff. For example, a buff can add or multiply damage that a player does when attacking, where as a debuff could reduce their speed. Try to make a sword that can one hit kill a wither.

Can place/destroy: Can place and can destroy are rules used in adventure mode, these allow blocks to only be placed/destroy on the listed blocks or block groups. In this generator you can enter free form text, which gives you a lot of options with nbt tags.

Long Commands: The give command can get quite long and break when entered into chat. The is because chat has a limitation of 256 characters (or 100 characters before 1.11). For commands longer than the limit, use a command block and paste the give command into the command block, place a button on the side and your command should run when pressed.

Versioning: The give command has changed a lot over various versions, most notability the removal of block ids and minor changes to the json encoded dataTag. See notes below, but perhaps one day we can make it work for all versions.
