Custom mob entity issues


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.


I'm having some troubles with a custom mob entity. Specifically with not moving around. At all. It turns to face me maybe once, but then never again.


Both are rather bare as I've just started work on them. But I was hoping I could get down some of the basics at least. And, like I said, it doesn't seem to be working.  I haven't posted the model or render files as there's no apparent issues, but if you'd like to see them I can provide.


Any kind of help or point in the right direction is appreciated!


The entity in question.


public class CustomEntity extends CustomEntityBase {

public JawacraftEntityDroidAstromech(World par1World, EntityPlayer player) 
	this.setSize(0.8f, 0.8f);
	this.tasks.addTask(1, new EntityAIWander(this, 1.0D));
	this.tasks.addTask(2, new EntityAIWatchClosest(this, EntityPlayer.class, 6.0F));
	this.tasks.addTask(3, new EntityAILookIdle(this));

public void onLivingUpdate()

public boolean isAIEnabled()
	return true;

protected void entityInit() {



The superclass.



public class CustomEntityBase extends EntityCreature {

public CustomEntityBase(World world)



And here's its entry in my main mod file.


EntityRegistry.registerGlobalEntityID(CustomEntity.class, "CustomEntity", ModFile.customEntityId, 5600, 2333);
	EntityRegistry.registerModEntity(CustomEntity.class, "CustomEntity", ModFile.customEntityId, ModFile.instance, 128, 3, true);

Thanks for the help! That seemed to solve the speed issue.


Except now they head off in a direction for a bit, and then pop back into the place they originally were in. Almost as if there was massive amounts of lag.


I've tried adjusting the entity tracking a bit, but so far no luck. I'm at a loss as for what to do. Any suggestions?

    • I've got no solution for this particular way. But may I suggest? You can create one singular item and store the entity's data using NBT or Capability. It will make things easier and cleaner.
    • REM Forge requires a configured set of both JVM and program arguments. REM Add custom JVM arguments to the user_jvm_args.txt REM Add custom program arguments {such as nogui} to this file in the next line before the %* or REM  pass them to this script directly "C:\Program Files\Java\jdk-17\bin\Java.exe" @user_jvm_args.txt @libraries/net/minecraftforge/forge/1.18.2-40.1.80/win_args.txt -Xmx8G -Xms8G %* pause     so I used it.
    • I created an SOUL_JAR Item that has been registered for each mob like - mod:soul_jar_minecraft_cow etc.. but it all has different registry names, i have a model file name soul_jar.json and i want to know how to bind each of those items to this class (When mod iterates through all of vanilla mobs and registering items for them).   I didn't found any info about it because all of info is outdated, and forge docs is complicated asf (i wish there would be more examples) i also used AI but it showing me only outdated info, but theres some code where i registering my item and trying to bind it to model ->   public static void register(IEventBus eventBus){ ITEMS.register(eventBus); Set<ResourceLocation> entityKeyList = ForgeRegistries.ENTITY_TYPES.getKeys(); for (ResourceLocation k : entityKeyList) { EntityType<?> entityType = ForgeRegistries.ENTITY_TYPES.getValue(k); if (!entityType.getCategory().equals(MobCategory.MISC)) { RegistryObject<Item> SOUL_JAR = ITEMS.register("soul_jar" + '_' + k.toString().replace(':', '_').replace('.', '_'), () -> new JarItem(new Item.Properties().rarity(Rarity.RARE).tab(ModTabs.MAGICAL_OBSESSION_JARS), entityType)); if (Thread.currentThread().getThreadGroup() == SidedThreadGroups.CLIENT) { ItemModelShaper itemModelShaper = Minecraft.getInstance().getItemRenderer().getItemModelShaper(); itemModelShaper.register(SOUL_JAR.get().asItem(), new ModelResourceLocation("item.soul_jar", "inventory")); } } } } I also have more questions like how to iterate through all other mods mobs also, or render mob inside of a jar in inventory, but i will try to figure it out.
    • I looked into OctoEconomyAPI and saw that it was a JAR api for fabric. This means you have a fabric mod in your mods folder. I downloaded your mod folder and wasted 2 solid hours creating a Python script to try to find the faulty mod, and eventually just gave up. I suggest you create two installations with half or the mods in each, find which one doesn't launch, cut that one in half, and repeat until you find the fabric mod. Investigué OctoEconomyAPI y vi que era una API JAR para fabric. Esto significa que tienes un mod de Fabric en tu carpeta de mods. Descargué su carpeta de mods y desperdicié 2 horas completas creando un script de Python para tratar de encontrar el mod defectuoso, y finalmente me di por vencido. Le sugiero que cree dos instalaciones con la mitad o las modificaciones en cada una, encuentre cuál no se inicia, córtela por la mitad y repita hasta que encuentre la modificación Fabric.   (The Python script I made is here): (El script de Python que hice está aquí):
