Get Inventory of Container


L0raxeo

Recommended Posts

My Background:
I'm relatively new to Modding with Forge. I have done it once before when I was new to programming, however now I am attempting it again now that I have sophisticated knowledge on coding. However that does not mean I am extremely familiar with the libraries of Forge, which is most likely the reason for this post

 

Goal:

Getting the item of a container when shift-right clicked and comparing it to another item

 

Problem(s)

 

1. Is there an event that is called when I shift right click on a block?

2. How do I get an item from the inventory of my container (1 slot container)

 

It's actually a toilet and the toilet has a container which contains just 1 slot. What I want in the end is for you right click to open the toilet, put an item inside, exit the container, shift-right click to flush: flushing will turn the item inside the toilet into fertilizer

So to address the points:

1. This is your block, do not use an event. You can just check if the player is sneaking within Block#use.

2. Use the capability on the tile entity or pass in the inventory itself to the server container.

Sorry I do not understand by what you mean when you say "Block#use". I googled it to no avail. Could you elaborate? Thanks for helping :)

Use your source to look within the AbstractBlock class for a method named 'use'. If you using the mcp mapping set over mojmaps, then that would be 'onBlockActivated' instead.

Even though I didn't understand what to do with your first answer, it lead me to an even better way of accessing the toilet. I just set it to run the method onBlockClicked()! Sorry, but I'm having trouble understanding what you mean for #2. You say to "use teh capability on the tile entity". What does that even mean? I'm in the TileEntityToilet class. I just created a method:
 

public ItemStack[] getInventory() { return inventory; } // sorry I don't know how to do code notation on here I know how to do it on stackoverflow but not here (this is my first time using curseforge forums)

 

(Just making sure) This refers to the inventory of the container and not the player right? If it does refer to the inventory of the container, how do I access the specific slot? My best guess is that the first slot is 0 right? Well, my container only has one slot anyways, but I would refer to the slot as getInventory[0]? Thanks again :D

 

Also, the method being ran is onBlockClicked inside the BlockToilet class. Since that is the case, how do I access the method in TileEntityToilet (getInventory())? Should I make it static? However I woulda assume that would break it since there would be multiple instance of the block and not just one toilet. I was thinking there is like a this.getTileEntity() or something like that but I can't seem to find one. Any suggestions?

This is not how you add an inventory to a tile entity. It breaks mod compatibility. For this, you should use capabilities. Specifically, you'll want to use the IItemHandler capability and implement on your own TE ItemStackHandler. Containers have special slot handlers that take in an IItemHandler.

Oh wait, sorry. My apologies, I don't think I made my situation clear. I've already added an inventory and everything. I can put items in it and take it out. I just need a way to compare the items in that one slot (that I've already coded), and to do that I need to get the inventory. I also am very new to these libraries (I just started using it a few days ago), so I'm sorry if I don't understand too easily). 

Here is a link to my code for the Tile Entity Toilet, so that you have a better understanding at where I'm at with coding the toilet.

and in my block class  (the one that extends to BlockContainer)currently has the onBlockClicked method. It's there that I want to get the inventory of the container (that I've already coded in), and also compare those contents to a specific item (although I think I know how to do that through the unlocalizedName)

The version of Forge you are using is not supported on the forums. The currently supported versions can be seen in the blue banner at the top of the page. Update to one of the above versions to receive support.

Oh :( that's unfortunate. Sorry to waste your time.

    • Wow this looks a lot simpler than I thought it would be. Especially compared to the setup I had to do for capabilities. I'll look at all this and update if I have any issues ty
    • Me and a group of friends were trying to get a modpack to work so we can play together. It works for everyone else, except me. At first when I tried to import the modpack, it said "invalid file" but it didn't with anyone else's. The owner of the modpack resent it several times and I still kept getting the same issue, so I opened the modlist and downloaded every single mod by hand. I thought that it would resolve the issue, but instead, it started saying "Forge Modloader Installation Failed" after I created a new installation, so I tried to use a pre-existing modpack, made sure it was the same version "1.20.1, forge version 47.3.0" and swap the mods there, but it still had the same issue, and now none of my modpacks are working at all. They all keep saying that the modloader installation failed. None of us have any idea what to do as we aren't the techiest people. Any help is appreciated. Thank you!
    • I don't think there's any documentation on them yet, I mainly just looked at the Vanilla code when implementing mine. You can see a fairly simple example here: Registration: https://github.com/Choonster-Minecraft-Mods/TestMod3/blob/f3bea10d5f455fa0904056caafd8c844b6fd13ae/src/main/java/choonster/testmod3/init/ModDataComponents.java#L50-L58 Item Registration: https://github.com/Choonster-Minecraft-Mods/TestMod3/blob/f3bea10d5f455fa0904056caafd8c844b6fd13ae/src/main/java/choonster/testmod3/init/ModItems.java#L264-L266 Usage: https://github.com/Choonster-Minecraft-Mods/TestMod3/blob/f3bea10d5f455fa0904056caafd8c844b6fd13ae/src/main/java/choonster/testmod3/world/item/EntityCheckerItem.java
    • Okay, I'm glad I made a backup then. I'm confused as to where there is any information on how to work with Data Components. I don't see anything about it on the Forge docs or any tutorials on this in general unless I'm missing it somehow. I can see the DataComponents decompiled class file but I'm not sure how to work with it. Maybe it's beyond my technical expertise?
    • The situation is the same in 1.20.6. Data Components were introduced in 1.20.5/1.20.6 and Item Capabilities haven't been re-implemented since then.
