The armor stand is an entity (in Minecraft for PC) which can hold armor items and display them. It’s more useful than a chest as it gives you a better overview of each set of armors you’ve acquired. This addon replaces six of the mobs in Minecraft PE with armor stands. Neither of the stands can be used but they are still cool and could be used as decorations.
How does it work?
None of the armor stands can be used for anything except for decoration. You can spawn an armor stand by using any of the following mob spawn eggs.
- Empty = Villager
- Leather = Wither Skeleton
- Chainmail = Skeleton
- Iron Armor = Stray
- Gold Armor = Zombie Pigman
- Diamond Armor = Husk
The armor stand will stay put at one position once it has been placed down. I kind of hoped that it would be possible to store items (similar to a chest) on an armor stand but even that isn’t possible.
You can reposition the armor stand by riding it and holding a carrot to control it.
It’s cool if you’ve never played the PC version of Minecraft and want to see what one looks like, or you can just use them for decoration.
