Denizen Script Commands

Commands are always written with a '-' before them, and are the core component of any script, the primary way to cause things to happen.

Syntaxplaysound (<location>|...) (<player>|...) [sound:<name>] (volume:<#.#>) (pitch:<#.#>) (custom) (sound_category:<category_name>)
Short DescriptionPlays a sound at the location or to a list of players.
Full DescriptionPlays a sound to a player or nearby players at a location.
The sound is played through the player's client just like any other sounds in Minecraft.

For a list of all sounds, check 🔗

Sounds are by default played under their normal sound type (eg zombie sounds are under the type Mobs/Animals).
You can optionally instead specify an alternate sound category to use.
For a list of all valid sound categories, check 🔗

Specifying a player or list of players will only play the sound for each player, from their own location (but will not follow them if they move).
If a location is specified, it will play the sound for any players that are near the location specified.
If both players and locations are specified, will play the sound for only those players at those locations.

Optionally, specify 'custom' to play a custom sound added by a resource pack, changing the sound name to something like ''

Optionally specify a pitch value (defaults to 1.0). A pitch from 0.0 to 1.0 will be deeper (sounds like a demon), and above 1.0 will be higher pitched (sounds like a fairy).

Optionally specify a volume value (defaults to 1.0). A volume from 0.0 to 1.0 will be quieter than normal.
A volume above 1.0 however will not be louder - instead it will be audible from farther (approximately 1 extra chunk of distance per value, eg 2.0 is 2 more chunks, 5.0 is 5 more chunks, etc.).
