Sword on armorstand helmet doesn't appear

  1. I am currently testing an armorstand animation and I'm trying to apply a diamond sword on setHelmet() but ingame the sword doesnt appear. Version is 1.8, the armorstand gets spawned, just without the sword. Any help or workaround for this? The animation is a sword coming from the sky (3 blocks above an anvil).
     
  2. The sword needs to be in one of the hand slots, it won't render if it's on Armor Slots.
     
  3. Ya but on handslots animations get so complicated... is there a tip to display the sword correctly and easier? Also another guy had the same problem but he said the sword renders on 1.9+. My console doesn't output errors either.
