[1.18.2] Adding Entities


Recommended Posts

I am trying to add a few custom arrows for a project i'm currently working on.

I have the classes all there and setup however there are some errors on a couple of constructors (see below)

import net.minecraft.world.entity.EntityType;
import net.minecraft.world.entity.LivingEntity;
import net.minecraft.world.entity.projectile.AbstractArrow;
import net.minecraft.world.entity.projectile.Arrow;
import net.minecraft.world.item.ItemStack;
import net.minecraft.world.level.Level;
import net.minecraft.world.phys.EntityHitResult;
import org.multicoder.mcpaintball.init.entityinit;

public class RedPaintballArrowEntity extends Arrow

    public RedPaintballArrowEntity(EntityType<? extends RedPaintballArrowEntity> p_36858_, Level p_36859_) {
        super(p_36858_, p_36859_);

    public RedPaintballArrowEntity(Level p_36861_, double p_36862_, double p_36863_, double p_36864_) {
        super(entityinit.RED_PAINTBALL.get(),p_36861_, p_36862_, p_36863_, p_36864_);

    public RedPaintballArrowEntity(Level p_36866_, LivingEntity p_36867_) {
        super(entityinit.RED_PAINTBALL.get(), p_36866_, p_36867_);

    protected ItemStack getPickupItem()
        return ItemStack.EMPTY;

    protected void onHitEntity(EntityHitResult p_36757_)


The error is with the bottom 2 constructors and it is saying cannot resolve method 'super', I am completely stuck on what to do or why this is happening to begin with. Am I missing something.

import net.minecraft.world.entity.EntityType;
import net.minecraft.world.entity.MobCategory;
import net.minecraftforge.registries.DeferredRegister;
import net.minecraftforge.registries.ForgeRegistries;
import net.minecraftforge.registries.RegistryObject;
import org.multicoder.mcpaintball.MCPaintball;
import org.multicoder.mcpaintball.entity.RedPaintballArrowEntity;

public class entityinit
    public static final DeferredRegister<EntityType<?>> ENTITY_TYPES = DeferredRegister.create(ForgeRegistries.ENTITIES, MCPaintball.MODID);

    public static final RegistryObject<EntityType<RedPaintballArrowEntity>> RED_PAINTBALL = ENTITY_TYPES.register("red_paintball",() -> EntityType.Builder.of(RedPaintballArrowEntity::new, MobCategory.MISC).sized(0.5f,0.5f).build("red_paintball"));

This is my entitytype register.

As the compiler is telling you, those constructors don't exist.

They do exist on AbstractArrow, but you aren't extending that class.

Please don't post basic java questions in this forum. Buy a book or whatever you need to learn the language.


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.
