The /setworldspawn command in Minecraft allows the user to change the location of the world spawn in their current Minecraft world. This makes it so any new players that join the world will start at that position, rather than the default spawn for the seed. The usage of this command is detailed below.
There are two options for syntax depending on which version of Minecraft you're using. They are listed below.
- Syntax: /setworldspawn <pos> <angle>
- Example: /setworldspawn 100 70 100 -180
- Result: Sets the world spawn to block position 100 70 100 and makes the user face due north.
- Syntax: /setworldspawn [spawnPoint: x y z]
- Example: /setworldspawn 100 70 100
- Result: Sets the world spawn to block position 100 70 100.
