[1.16.5]Attaching an inventory to an item


Recommended Posts

This is pretty self explanatory but i am trying to attach an inventory to one of my items. I know that i should be using capabilities for this but I'm not sure where i should put it for an item. Would it go inside of initCapabilities(), and if so how would i use that? I tried to take a look at how other mods do this but every mod seems to do it a different way and all of which require some kind of GUI(which I do not want). Of course there is the forge docs but their isn't enough documentations for doing so to items, it mostly explains for tile entities. Anything else i could find is too old to be any use with the complete API reworks basically every other version. Could someone help me with this? I was able to solve this issue last time i encountered it by simply adding the name of the stored item to the nbt but I'm afraid this wont work for this as I need to be able to have more than one slots.

You need a capability, and a capability provider.
the capability is just a class which will hold your arbitrary data, for an Inventory, you want an IItemHandler (which handles ItemStacks). forge already has a default implementation of IItemHandler called ItemStackHandler, however you can create your own for custom behaviour.

the capability provider is a class which implements ICapabilityProvider (orICapabilitySerializable<INBT> if you need save and load the data between sessions). In it's getCapability method, if the requested capability is your capability (or if it is just an inventory you can use CapabiltiyItemHandler.ITEM_HANDLER_CAPABILITY), and then return a lazy instance of it.

public class ParcelItem extends Item implements ICapabilityProvider {
	LazyOptional<ItemStackHandler> inventoryHandler = LazyOptional.of(this);
	
	public ParcelItem(Properties properties) {
		super(properties);
	}

	@Override
	public <T> LazyOptional<T> getCapability(Capability<T> cap, Direction side) {
		if(cap == CapabilityItemHandler.ITEM_HANDLER_CAPABILITY) {
			return inventoryHandler.cast();
		}
		return null;
	}
}

Alright, i will make sure to use that instead, although, this is currently what I have. From the docs i understand i have to use a lazy optional and use the IItemHandler(im guessing replacing it with ItemStackHandler is fine consider it uses IItemHandler as a base). I thought i could pass the class as the supplier though but it seems i was mistaken. What exactly am i supposed to pass to it? Am i even supposed to do it like this?

Items can't be CapabilityProviders (unless you want all copies of your item to share that data). Item inventories belong to ItemStacks. Override initCapabilities.

you don't.
You'll check the capability type in the provider;

And in your initCapabilities you'll return an instance of said provider. If your item needs more than one capability, just make a Provider which provides multiple capabilties depending on which one is requested.

I am really confused tbh. How exactly am I supposed to do that?

the job of the CapabilityProvider is too handle and expose all the capabilities for an object. In the getCapabilities method, it will check for which capability that is being requested, and provide it.

in the Item class, the point of the initCapabilities method, is just to say which CapabilityProvider will handle it's data.

so if what you need is an Inventory, you'd have an "InventoryProvider", which when the ITEM_STACK_HANDLER capability was requested, would return the Inventory. and in the item which has this inventory data, it would return this InventoryProvider in initCapabilities.

Here's an example:

public class BackpackCapabilityProvider implements ICapabilitySerializable<INBT> {

	// BackpackItemStackHandler is just an extension of ItemStackHandler which makes sure no Backpack can be put in the inventory
    private BackpackItemStackHandler backpackItemStackHandler;

	// This instantiates the Inventory only when it is first requested, and then caches it
    @Nonnull
    private BackpackItemStackHandler getCachedInventory() {
        if (backpackItemStackHandler == null) backpackItemStackHandler = new BackpackItemStackHandler();
        return backpackItemStackHandler;
    }

    private final LazyOptional<IItemHandler> lazyInventory = LazyOptional.of(this::getCachedInventory);

	// Provides the Inventory
    @Nonnull @Override
    public <T> LazyOptional<T> getCapability(@Nonnull Capability<T> cap, Direction side) {
        if (cap == CapabilityItemHandler.ITEM_HANDLER_CAPABILITY) return (LazyOptional<T>)(lazyInventory);
		// If we needed to provide more than one capability, we'd simply add another check:
		// if (cap == SOME_OTHER_CAPABILITY) return (otherCapability)

        return LazyOptional.empty();
    }

	// Saves the Inventory data to an NBT tag, so that it can be saved to disk
    @Override
    public INBT serializeNBT() {
        return CapabilityItemHandler.ITEM_HANDLER_CAPABILITY.writeNBT(getCachedInventory(), null);
    }
  
	// Reads the Inventory data from an NBT tag that was saved to disk
    @Override
    public void deserializeNBT(INBT nbt) {
        CapabilityItemHandler.ITEM_HANDLER_CAPABILITY.readNBT(getCachedInventory(), null, nbt);
    }
}

You don't. That's the point in time when you are saying "THIS ITEM HAS A CAPABILITY!" and it gets called once on itemstack creation.
The getCapability method that you need to check against is different.

    }

    private final LazyOptional<IItemHandler> lazyInventory = LazyOptional.of(this::getCachedInventory);

	// Provides the Inventory
    @Nonnull @Override
    public <T> LazyOptional<T> getCapability(@Nonnull Capability<T> cap, Direction side) {
        if (cap == CapabilityItemHandler.ITEM_HANDLER_CAPABILITY) return (LazyOptional<T>)(lazyInventory);
		// If we needed to provide more than one capability, we'd simply add another check:
		// if (cap == SOME_OTHER_CAPABILITY) return (otherCapability)

        return LazyOptional.empty();
    }

	// Saves the Inventory data to an NBT tag, so that it can be saved to disk
    @Override
    public INBT serializeNBT() {
        return CapabilityItemHandler.ITEM_HANDLER_CAPABILITY.writeNBT(getCachedInventory(), null);
    }
  
	// Reads the Inventory data from an NBT tag that was saved to disk
    @Override
    public void deserializeNBT(INBT nbt) {
        CapabilityItemHandler.ITEM_HANDLER_CAPABILITY.readNBT(getCachedInventory(), null, nbt);
    }
}

 

Alright so, ive gotten it to work but now im a bit confused as to how i add items to the inventory. Im guessing its not as simple as inventoryHandler#setStackInSlot() is it? Would this add it to the item or itemstack?

ItemStackHandler#insert and ItemStackHandler#Extract

    • Hello. I decided to try to make a mod, but for some reason I stumbled at the very beginning. How do I register a block for it to appear in the inventory? It seems that I'm trying to do it according to the manual, but only the procedure for registering new blocks is described there. So I made a mod class. I registered the registration, but when I install it into the game, I do not see my block in the intent. And I will also be grateful if you give a link to some kind of detailed manual. So that step by step it was described how what can be created. Thanks.   @Mod("examplemod") public class ExampleMod { // Directly reference a log4j logger. private static final Logger LOGGER = LogManager.getLogger(); private static final String MODID = "0.1"; private static final DeferredRegister<Block> BLOCKS = DeferredRegister.create(ForgeRegistries.BLOCKS, MODID); public static final RegistryObject<Block> MyBlock = BLOCKS.register("mysuperblockreg", () -> new SuperBlock(BlockBehaviour.Properties.of(Material.WOOD).lightLevel((s) -> { return 1; }).sound(SoundType.WOOD))); public ExampleMod() { // Register the setup method for modloading FMLJavaModLoadingContext.get().getModEventBus().addListener(this::setup); // Register the enqueueIMC method for modloading FMLJavaModLoadingContext.get().getModEventBus().addListener(this::enqueueIMC); // Register the processIMC method for modloading FMLJavaModLoadingContext.get().getModEventBus().addListener(this::processIMC); BLOCKS.register(FMLJavaModLoadingContext.get().getModEventBus()); // Register ourselves for server and other game events we are interested in MinecraftForge.EVENT_BUS.register(this); } private void setup(final FMLCommonSetupEvent event) { // some preinit code LOGGER.info("HELLO FROM PREINIT"); LOGGER.info("DIRT BLOCK >> {}", Blocks.DIRT.getRegistryName()); } private void enqueueIMC(final InterModEnqueueEvent event) { // some example code to dispatch IMC to another mod InterModComms.sendTo("examplemod", "helloworld", () -> { LOGGER.info("Hello world from the MDK"); return "Hello world"; }); } private void processIMC(final InterModProcessEvent event) { // some example code to receive and process InterModComms from other mods LOGGER.info("Got IMC {}", event.getIMCStream().map(m -> m.messageSupplier().get()).collect(Collectors.toList())); } // You can use SubscribeEvent and let the Event Bus discover methods to call @SubscribeEvent public void onServerStarting(FMLServerStartingEvent event) { // do something when the server starts LOGGER.info("HELLO from server starting"); } // You can use EventBusSubscriber to automatically subscribe events on the // contained class (this is subscribing to the MOD // Event bus for receiving Registry Events) @Mod.EventBusSubscriber(bus = Mod.EventBusSubscriber.Bus.MOD) public static class RegistryEvents { @SubscribeEvent public static void onBlocksRegistry(final RegistryEvent.Register<Block> blockRegistryEvent) { // register a new block here LOGGER.info("HELLO from Register Block"); } } }  
    • I'm probably really stupid but how do I fix this error. It happens whenever I try to startup Minecraft forge 1.8.9 recommended [19:13:10 ERROR]: Gave up trying to download https://maven.minecraftforge.net/jline/jline/2.13/jline-2.13.jar for job 'Version & Libraries' [19:13:10 ERROR]: Job 'Version & Libraries' finished with 1 failure(s)! (took 0:00:13.982)   How do I fix this?
    • Override attackEntityFrom and do checks there, for example DamageSource#isProjectile. Or check how Enderman does it.
    • Hey, I just started modding, and especially texturing, so I'm still new to all of this. I thought a fun thing to do would be to turn the world to glass (turn blocks such as grass and stone and ores etc..) to have the grass texture, so the world would be glass. Seemed kinda fun. So I just copy-pasted the glass texture into my pack, renamed it to stone, and ran into a problem. It is rendering the glass texture, but is not transparent. Its just grey on the inside, with the glass textures on the side. I am completely lost as of what to do. Does anyone have a solution ? thank you
