Sound is not reproduced [1.16.5]

Recommended Posts

I was making a custom ambulance, and when i press the key "b", it should play the siren sound effect, but it doesn't.
Can someone help?

This is Where i Call the Sound:

public class AmbulanceEntity extends VehicleEntity {

    private boolean sirenActivate;

    public AmbulanceEntity(EntityType<? extends AmbulanceEntity> type, World worldIn) {
        super(type, worldIn);
        this.sirenActivate = false;

    public boolean isSirenOn() {
        return this.sirenActivate;

    public void updateSiren() {
        this.sirenActivate = !this.sirenActivate;
        if (this.sirenActivate) {
            AmbulanceSirenSound sound = new AmbulanceSirenSound(this);
            System.out.println("Add Sound");
        PacketHandler.instance.sendToServer(new MessageAmbulanceSirenChange(this.sirenActivate));

    public void setSirenActivate(boolean sirenActivate) {
        this.sirenActivate = sirenActivate;

The Ambulance Sound Class:

public class AmbulanceSirenSound extends TickableSound {

    private AmbulanceEntity refEntity;

    public AmbulanceSirenSound(AmbulanceEntity entity) {
        super(ModSounds.AMBULANCE_SIREN.get(), SoundCategory.MUSIC);
        this.refEntity = entity;
        this.repeat = true;
        this.repeatDelay = 0;
        this.volume = 0.8F;
        this.pitch = 0.85F;

    public void tick() {
        if (this.refEntity == null || Minecraft.getInstance().player == null) {
        if (refEntity.isSirenOn() && this.refEntity.getPassengers().size() > 0) {
            PlayerEntity localPlayer = Minecraft.getInstance().player;
            this.x = (float) (this.refEntity.getPosX() + (localPlayer.getPosX() - this.refEntity.getPosX()) * 0.65);
            this.y = (float) (this.refEntity.getPosY() + (localPlayer.getPosY() - this.refEntity.getPosY()) * 0.65);
            this.z = (float) (this.refEntity.getPosZ() + (localPlayer.getPosZ() - this.refEntity.getPosZ()) * 0.65);
            System.out.println("Sound Tick");
        } else {

You cannot do this in a common class, you will crash servers.

Also, where do you call updateSiren?

dove dovrei riprodurre il suono? e come?

I call the update Siren here, in my Client Event Handler:

    public void onKeyInput(InputEvent.KeyInputEvent event) {
        if (Minecraft.getInstance().player == null)

        if (ClientProxy.KEY_CYCLE_SEATS.isPressed() && event.getAction() == GLFW.GLFW_PRESS) {
            if (Minecraft.getInstance().player.getRidingEntity() instanceof VehicleEntity) {
                PacketHandler.instance.sendToServer(new MessageCycleSeats());

        if (ClientProxy.KEY_AMBULANCE_SIREN.isPressed() && event.getAction() == GLFW.GLFW_PRESS) {
            Entity entity = Minecraft.getInstance().player.getRidingEntity();
            if (entity instanceof AmbulanceEntity) {
                ((AmbulanceEntity) entity).updateSiren();

KeyInputEvent is for raw keyboard input. Use ClientTickEvent to check key bindings.

Have you used the debugger? Is your sound created and started? Are there any errors?

It won't.

There are no errors, the sound is loaded correctly.

Please post a Git repo of your mod.

Ok, thanks for the help but I found the error.

It's a stupid one..

I continually send messages to the server to update the sound, then it keeps turning on / off. I changed some lines of code and now I can reproduce the sound correctly.
