[1.16.5] Creating a packet


Recommended Posts

So I'm following the SimpleImpl forge docs (https://mcforge.readthedocs.io/en/1.16.x/networking/simpleimpl/), and I'm just on registering packets and I've run into the problem that I don't actually know how to make a packet. In the past I know there were things like IMessage & IMessageHandler, I can't find anything like that for 1.16.5 though. Also the register method for SimpleChannel requires a MSG, which I know is the packet but I can't find any definition for a class or anything named MSG either.

You just make a class. Then you define:

  • an encoder: takes in the packet instance and a PacketBuffer and writes the packet's data to the buffer
  • a decoder: takes in a PacketBuffer, reads the packet data and then returns the packet instance
  • a handler: takes in the packet instance and performs its action.

You can choose your implementation however you like, you only need to provide these three elements.
