Capability disappearing/not reattaching


Recommended Posts

I have a cooldown capability that I want to attach to items with specific enchants and it attaches fine when loading in but when you drop the item or enchant an existing item with the target enchant it won't attach.
Here's the relevant code

    @Mod.EventBusSubscriber(modid = PondWeaponMod.MODID, bus = Mod.EventBusSubscriber.Bus.FORGE)
    public static class Events {
        public static void attachCapabilityEnchantedItemEvent(AttachCapabilitiesEvent<ItemStack> event) {
            if(event.getObject() instanceof ItemStack) {
                if (!event.getObject().getStack().getEnchantmentTagList().isEmpty()){
                    if (EnchantmentHelper.getEnchantments(event.getObject().getStack()).get(ModEnchantments.thunder) != null) {
                        event.addCapability(new ResourceLocation(PondWeaponMod.MODID, "cooldown"), new CooldownCapability());

Any ideas on how to properly handle this?

Note that enchanting an existing item does not call AttachCapabilities because it's adding data to an existing item stack, not creating a new one.

Apparently I'm a complete and utter jerk and come to this forum just like to make fun of people, be confrontational, and make your personal life miserable.  If you think this is the case, JUST REPORT ME.  Otherwise you're just going to get reported when you reply to my posts and point it out, because odds are, I was trying to be nice.
