EntityType from SpawnEggItem


Recommended Posts

I have a SpawnEggItem and would like to get the EntityType of the Entity it spawns.

I have not tried anything because I don't know how the getType(CompoundNBT p_208076_1_) works.

Here is the code I have

public SpawnEggItem getSpawnEgg(EntityType theEntity)
	{
		Iterator<SpawnEggItem> eggs = SpawnEggItem.eggs().iterator();
		while (eggs.hasNext()) {
			SpawnEggItem item = eggs.next();
			if(item.getType(idk).equals(theEntity))
			{
				return item;
			}
		}
		return null;
	}

So yeah... any help would be pretty cool, thanks.

A spawn egg can have its type overwritten by the ItemStack NBT data. Hence getType expects the NBT data being passed in. You can pass null if you just want the egg's default entity type.

Thank you. A lot. It works. Is there a way to mark your answer as correct or is it automatic?
