    Examples of Armor Stands created with these tools.

    A view of the GUI


    I wanted to create an armor stand for each kit in my mini-game, and I quickly became frustrated with trying to use commands and numeric values to position the legs, arms, body and head of each armor stand, so I created this plugin which allows you to do all of this with ease. Among other features you can create any pose you wish just by holding right click on the tools and moving your cursor up and down on the armor stand. The plugin can also generate a summon command that will re-create the armor stand at any time.​


    • This version of Armor Stand Tools is compatible with Spigot/CraftBukkit 1.13 and 1.14 ONLY. If you are running Spigot/CraftBukkit 1.8 through 1.12 then use Armor Stand Tools v2.4.3.


    • Summon armor stands.
    • Name armor stands.
    • Toggle: Gravity, Visibility, Arms, Base, Size, Invulnerability, Equipment Lock.
    • Manipulate the x/y/z rotations of the Head, Body, Arms and Legs. The value depends on how high up the armor stand's body you click with the tool (i.e. click near the feet is one extreme, near the top of the head is the other extreme).
    • Full control over armor stand's inventory (armor & items in hands).
    • Pick up and move armor stands.
    • Armor stand cloning tool.
    • Save tool: Automatically generate a command block with the command to summon that armor stand in its current state.
    • Player head tool: Give an armor stand the head of a specific player.
    • WorldGuard region support.

    • Assign commands to armor stands that are run when a player right clicks that armor stand (see below).

    Assigning Commands
    • Use /ascmd to assign a command to an armor stand (see usage and permissions below)
    • When using /ascmd assign player <command>, the command will be run by the player
    • When using /ascmd assign console <command>, the command will be run by the console (see Warning below!)
    • When a player with the astools.ascmd.execute permission right clicks on an armor stand, it's command is run.
    • If a player is crouching when they right click the armor stand, the command will not be run.
    • Warning: Make sure you are careful when assigning console commands. Any player with the astools.ascmd.execute permission will be able to execute the command.
    • Note: Commands may include a %player% placeholder, which will get replaced by the executing player's name at time of execution.
    • The default cooldown for armor stand command can be specified in config.yml, otherwise individual cooldowns can be specified using the command /ascmd cooldown <ticks>

    • config.yml - The main config allows you to set the default starting settings for newly summoned armor stands. This is useful if you plan on creating a lot of armor stands with similar equipment.
    • language.yml - Contains all of the strings of text that the player will see. Edit this file if you wish to change the text or translate it into a different language.


    To install a translation, replace language.yml with one of these language.yml files:​

    An amazing resource, much easier to edit an armor stand now in a GUI.
    I have one suggestion, could you please support armor stand copy between worlds?

      This is already possible, you just need to change an option in config.yml:
      allowMovingStandsBetweenWorlds: true

    Hello I think this Plugin is amazing. I worked with it since years and it's now even one of my favourite Plugins!

    But I have a Suggestion!
    Could you please add a feature, where you can click on it to lock the armorstand, that you can't move it anymore. Because sometimes I will do something very nice with much armorstands on very less place (1block), but you always move anotherone, which you wouldn't move. With this Addon/Feature is much more possible, as without!

    Please add this soon! c:

    Works perfectly in 1.13. Used to use this plugin alot. Those who say it dosen't work properly, don't know how to move the armour stand parts correctly. It takes skill and practise. I can make 2 armour stands snog each other, fight each other, randomly wave at u, etc. I can even get an armour stand and make him put a sword in a block. Then you can turn him invisible and it looks like the sword is stuck in the stone.
