[1.16.4] Glowing effect on block


vladmany

Recommended Posts

I need to highlight a block with a spectral arrow effect (glowing) only on the client side. All that came to my mind was to make the game think that there is an invisible shulker in a certain place, which has the effect of glowing. I tried to implement this using mixins, but did not achieve the desired result. Perhaps there is also an option to render the effect itself without an entity, but I do not quite understand how to do this. I will be grateful for help.

Sounds to me like you are writing an xray? 🙂

 You can use forge's RenderLevelLast event to draw anything over the top the world rendering.

I'll leave it as an exercise how you draw the glowing block outline in perspective.

Boilerplate:

If you don't post your logs/debug.log we can't help you. For curseforge you need to enable the forge debug.log in its minecraft settings. You should also post your crash report if you have one.

If there is no error in the log file and you don't have a crash report then post the launcher_log.txt from the minecraft folder. Again for curseforge this will be in your curseforge/minecraft/Install

Large files should be posted to a file sharing site like https://gist.github.com  You should also read the support forum sticky post.

You don't need mixins for this. If you want to follow the "entity path" you can either summon an invisible, unkillable and uncollidable shulker with the glowing effect where the arrow lands or either create your own entity that by default has no rendering (it's just a transparent cube) or can camouflage to a blockstate you pass in when summoning (and then render the block as the entity texture)

Is it possible to summon a entity only on the client?  Let me remind you that in my situation, the mod must be client-side.

    • Hello. I'm using IntelliJ IDEA and making a mod for Forge 1.20.1 and I'm trying to make a GUI. I found that the Minecraft-related codes are all obfuscated and when setting up the workspace, Gradle did not execute Deobfuscation tasks like createMcpToSrg. Is this normal or a bug? Can anyone help me with this?
    • Hello! I'm trying to get a list of all entries registered in the infusion upgrade registry. Code can be found in github: https://github.com/ChamoisEST/MiningMadness/tree/1.20.1 Registry in common/registries/MMRegistries.java Event that calls the registry is in MiningMadness.java List of registered entries should be called in common/capabilities/infusion/InfusionCapabilityImplementation.java:getActiveInfusions() in the for loop. Is there any way to accomplish that? Thanks in advance!  
    • So, I am trying to create and add tags to my custom damage type, but looks like I made something wrong, since it crashing with error that "cannot register" damage type. Im trying to register it, and in datagen add tags, but it everytime crashing due to not register "grimtales:entropy". Full code there - https://github.com/undertakerJ/Grim-Tales-Forge ModDamageTypes class public class ModDamageTypes { public static final DeferredRegister<DamageType> DAMAGE_TYPES = DeferredRegister.create(Registries.DAMAGE_TYPE, GrimTales.MOD_ID); public static final ResourceKey<DamageType> ENTROPY_KEY = ResourceKey.create(Registries.DAMAGE_TYPE, new ResourceLocation(GrimTales.MOD_ID, "entropy")); public static final RegistryObject<DamageType> ENTROPY = DAMAGE_TYPES.register( "entropy", () -> new DamageType("entropy_effect", DamageScaling.ALWAYS, 1f, DamageEffects.HURT)); // // public static final DamageSource ENTROPY_SOURCE = new DamageSource(Holder.direct(ENTROPY.get())); public static void register(IEventBus eventBus) { DAMAGE_TYPES.register(eventBus); } } Datagen for damageTags public class ModDamageTagsProvider extends DamageTypeTagsProvider { public ModDamageTagsProvider( PackOutput p_270719_, CompletableFuture<HolderLookup.Provider> p_270256_, @Nullable ExistingFileHelper existingFileHelper) { super(p_270719_, p_270256_, GrimTales.MOD_ID, existingFileHelper); } @Override protected void addTags(HolderLookup.Provider pProvider) { this.tag(DamageTypeTags.BYPASSES_INVULNERABILITY).add(ModDamageTypes.ENTROPY_KEY); } } Datagen class it self   @Mod.EventBusSubscriber(modid = GrimTales.MOD_ID, bus = Mod.EventBusSubscriber.Bus.MOD) public class DataGenerators { @SubscribeEvent public static void gatherData(GatherDataEvent event){ DataGenerator generator = event.getGenerator(); PackOutput packOutput = generator.getPackOutput(); ExistingFileHelper helper = event.getExistingFileHelper(); CompletableFuture<HolderLookup.Provider> lookupProvider = event.getLookupProvider(); generator.addProvider(event.includeServer(), new ModDamageTagsProvider(packOutput, lookupProvider, helper)); } } And register class in main class public GrimTales() { IEventBus modEventBus = FMLJavaModLoadingContext.get().getModEventBus(); ModDamageTypes.register(modEventBus); modEventBus.addListener(this::commonSetup); MinecraftForge.EVENT_BUS.register(this); modEventBus.addListener(this::addCreative); }

    • Hi. I'm trying to play RLCraft with Optifine but my game keeps crashing on startup with Exit Code 1. The modpack was working fine yesterday, not sure what changed to make it not wanna work anymore. I was hoping someone here could help me figure out what's going wrong. If I remove Optifine, nothing changes, I still get the same errors. Thanks in advance. Crash Report (I only included the errors+fatal, I’m not sure if more is needed, please let me know): https://pastebin.ai/66ivknz0f4
