What does riptide do in Minecraft? This is one of the most common questions asked by players. Riptide is a command block that can be used to create waves or streams of water-type blocks on your creations. It has many uses and it’s important to know what each type does for you! In this blog post, we will go over how to use riptide through examples and what different types are available to you.
Command block: The first type of Riptide is the command block. This one will be activated by right clicking it with a water bucket in your hand or left click on it where you would like to place the rippling of water blocks. It can also be created and put into an existing world through commands, for example ” /give @p minecraft:command_block “. If any player has access to this spawner while others do not they may use it when no players are nearby without needing to break their own creations as with normal spawning methods!
Wave: This second type does what its name suggests – creates waves that flow from east to west across a set width (from 0 at North/South poles up to 90 at the Equator). These waves will appear as a surface of water that can be walked on and even ridden through like a wave, but do not provide any protection if you fall in.
Riptide Wave: The final type is what we call the “Riptide Wave.” This one has three different possible settings – short, medium, or long – which governs how many blocks are moved by the wave per second to create the desired effect. You can also change this setting during an active rippling to control what happens when it reaches its destination (for example using “long” until it gets close then switching to “short”).
Short: Short causes only about every sixth block to move with each tick so it’s a slower wave.
Medium: This is the default and it moves every other block so it’s intermediate in speed.
Long: The longest setting causes all blocks to move with each tick, which makes for one fast rippling wave!
Riptide Duration (seconds): When we want an active rippling effect that lasts longer than what our “Wave Length” setting allows us to input, we use this slider.”
How do you turn on Riptide? You can access the settings from your Minecraft menu screen by clicking Edit Profile > Options > Resource Packs > Open resource pack folder. From here find your current installed resource packs folder then look for ‘riptidesettings’. Drag and drop the Riptide settings file into the resource packs folder.
New sentence: In order to use riptides you will need a few things including, but not limited too; an above-ground pool of water and some players!
If I were to summarize what Riptide does in Minecraft it would be that it is something like the sea’s currents or waves. It allows for very active bodies of water by randomly pushing blocks every time there are ticks so it mimics real world objects while also being less chaotic than normal waves which produce results on their own without direction from outside forces.”
