spawn an entity in front of another entity

Recommended Posts

i'm trying to make lightning spawn in front of my entity in a row as a sort of attack but don't know how to make it actually detect what the front is and how you move it from there.

 

i also have a second question, i want my entity to have multiple attacks, but currently it only prioritizes one and never does the other one.

Could you please describe where the front actually is? since there are several interpretations of front.

Show the code you are using to summon the Entities.

	@Override
	public void performRangedAttack(LivingEntity p_33317_, float p_33318_) {
		if (this.distanceToSqr(p_33317_) >=10) {
		LightningBolt lightningbolt = new LightningBolt(EntityType.LIGHTNING_BOLT, this.level);
		//get the front of the entity
		//set the pos to (for example) 2 blocks in front of it
	      this.level.addFreshEntity(lightningbolt);

(the 'if distancetosqr' was an attempt to try alternate between attacks)

Entity.getViewVector() tells you the direction it is looking.

Entity.getPosition() or Entity.getEyePosition() tells you where they are.

Then its just vector arithmetic.

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.

    • Hello, I am experiencing the following error once an hour and sometimes two hours, does anyone know what might cause the crash? Is it a mod that is causing it or is there a mod that can fix that?

    • Merging Minecraft modpacks is simpler than it sounds. Just think of it as combining ingredients from two recipes into one. If you're not sure how to start, there's a handy tutorial on YouTube titled "How to combine mods in Curseforge Minecraft" that breaks it down step by step. It's like following a cooking show but for Minecraft mods. And if you need more help, the Reddit's r/feedthebeast are like the community kitchen where everyone shares their cooking tips.

    • Been having this crash report on a pack I'm running with some friends. No idea what's causing it, was able to replicate this crash by making a new modpack with nothing but mekanism in it https://pastebin.com/RNQLVEP4 Mekanism definitely isn't the problem I've just identified it as having items that create this rendering error below is a further crash report, same error just not mekanism  https://pastebin.com/D05EQW5U Any help would be greatly appreciated
