I made levitation lingering potions with a command block and hit myself with one and three one straight down before I start falling Another one landed one block up vertically (so I would fall through the potion 2x before I hit the ground). As I fell, I started floating up again without taking fall damage or touching the ground. However, my client thought I took fall damage and played the fall damage sound. (I was in survival mode; this won't work in creative mode.)
See the video: MC-210461.mp4
Note that I used a different method in the video, using the command
I also had block sounds turned off so that you could hear the fall damage sound more easily.
- Place a command block with the command listed above
- Place a pressure plate above that
- Switch to survival mode
- Step on the pressure plate and be sure to land on it
