The Description Tag

This item allows you to give other items descriptions.

First you have to name the description tag in the anvil. The name you give it will later be the description of other items.

Some things to note when you set the name in the anvil:

  • Inserting ‘n’ will create a new line in the description
  • Adding a ‘+’ at the beginning of the name will add the description to the existing one, without the plus it’ll overwrite the description
  • Adding ‘++’ at the beginning of the name will add the description to the last line of any existing descripition

Here’s an image explaining how the formatting works:
