How do you get a custom modelled block to face the player?


Jacknoshima

Recommended Posts

Similar to how anvils and stairs work. I need my custom modelled block to face the player when placed.

 

I've looked in every block class I can think of that does this (pumpkins, furnace, chest, anvil, stairs) and none of the code relating to on block place seems to work. I think it may be my render file but the only info I can get on this is months old and the code doesn't work anymore

 

can anyone help?

 

my block file is:

 

package advblocks;
import java.util.Random;

import cpw.mods.fml.relauncher.Side;
import cpw.mods.fml.relauncher.SideOnly;

import net.minecraft.block.Block;
import net.minecraft.block.BlockContainer;
import net.minecraft.block.material.Material;

import net.minecraft.item.ItemStack;
import net.minecraft.tileentity.TileEntity;
import net.minecraft.tileentity.TileEntityFurnace;
import net.minecraft.util.MathHelper;
import net.minecraft.world.World;
public class BlockKeg extends BlockContainer
{
public BlockKeg(int par1)
{
	super(par1, Material.rock);
}

public int quantityDropped(Random par1Random)
{
	return 1;
}

public int getRenderType()
{
	return 50;
}

public boolean isOpaqueCube()
{
	return false;
} 

public boolean renderAsNormalBlock()
{
	return false;
}

    public int getMobilityFlag()
    {
        return 0;
    }
public int damageDropped(int par1)
{
	return par1;
}
    
public TileEntityKeg getBlockEntity()
{
	return new TileEntityKeg(blockID);
}


public TileEntity createNewTileEntity(World var1)
{
	return new TileEntityKegEntity();
}

@SideOnly(Side.CLIENT)
public void registerIcons(IconRegister par1IconRegister){
	this.blockIcon = par1IconRegister.registerIcon(AdvBlocks.modid + ":" + (this.getUnlocalizedName().substring(5)));
}
}

 

 

the the renders are:

It may be helpful to have a look at the piston.  It is a block not a tile entity, and it uses metadata to record which direction the piston is pointing in (based on the player direction when the piston was placed). 

BlockPistonBase:
   public void onBlockPlacedBy(World par1World, int par2, int par3, int par4, EntityLivingBase par5EntityLivingBase, ItemStack par6ItemStack)
    {
        int l = determineOrientation(par1World, par2, par3, par4, par5EntityLivingBase);
        par1World.setBlockMetadataWithNotify(par2, par3, par4, l, 2);
        //etc

 

During the block render it looks at the metadata to figure out how to rotate the faces as necessary for proper rendering.

    
RenderBlocks:
public boolean renderPistonBase(Block par1Block, int par2, int par3, int par4, boolean par5)
    {
        int l = this.blockAccess.getBlockMetadata(par2, par3, par4);
        boolean flag1 = par5 || (l &  != 0;
        int i1 = BlockPistonBase.getOrientation(l);
        float f = 0.25F;

        if (flag1)
        {
            switch (i1)
            {
                case 0:
                    this.uvRotateEast = 3;
                    this.uvRotateWest = 3;
                    this.uvRotateSouth = 3;
                    this.uvRotateNorth = 3;
                    this.setRenderBounds(0.0D, 0.25D, 0.0D, 1.0D, 1.0D, 1.0D);
                    break;
                case 1:
                    this.setRenderBounds(0.0D, 0.0D, 0.0D, 1.0D, 0.75D, 1.0D);
                    break;

public void onBlockPlacedBy(World world, int x, int y, int z, EntityLivingBase living, ItemStack stack)
    {
	super.onBlockPlacedBy(world, x, y, z, living, stack);
        byte dir = 0;
        int plyrFacing = MathHelper.floor_double(((living.rotationYaw * 4F) / 360F) + 0.5D) & 3;
        if (plyrFacing == 0)
            dir = 2;
        if (plyrFacing == 1)
            dir = 5;
        if (plyrFacing == 2)
            dir = 3;
        if (plyrFacing == 3)
            dir = 4;
        TileEntity tpb = world.getBlockTileEntity(x, y, z);
        if (tpb != null && tpb instanceof TEProjectBenchII)
        {
            ((TEProjectBenchII)tpb).setDirection(dir);
            world.markBlockForUpdate(x, y, z);
        }
    }

This works fine for me. Throw this in your Block class.

Well, after looking at various sources for several hours, I decided to just split it into 4 blocks facing in 4 directions

 

I believe it's something in my render code that's not working, I have an idea what's wrong so I'm just gunna work on it over time

 

Thanks for the pointers though :D

At least I know I'm headed in the right direction now

1. If you are using TileEntity you don't need ISimpleBlockRenderingHandler.

2. adjustRotatePivotViaMeta() makes no sense at all.

3. Check out the tutorial section, there's one with working rotation.

Briefly:

//This goes into onBlockPlacedBy(
int dir = MathHelper.floor_double((double)((entityLivingBase.rotationYaw * 4F) / 360F) + 0.5D) & 3;
world.setBlockMetadataWithNotify(x, y, z, dir, 0);

//This goes into renderer
int dir = world.getBlockMetadata(i, j, k);

GL11.glPushMatrix();
GL11.glTranslatef(0.5F, 0, 0.5F);
GL11.glRotatef(dir * (-90F), 0F, 1F, 0F);
/*
  * Place your rendering code here.
  */
GL11.glPopMatrix();

If i helped you, don't forget pressing "Thank You" button. Thanks for your time.

    • Hello I'm looking for help launching minecraft through curseforge. I've scoured the Internet and can't seem to find anyone with a solution to my specific situation/fix that I haven't tried. I'll post the Curseforge debug Logs below. But basically I'm on a Laptop (Lenovo Legion Slim 7 2021) And the people I've seen with the most similar scenario and found a fix they always had an AMD graphics card and were missing the correct drivers, Well i have the Nvidia geforce RTX 3060 Laptop version with all the most updated drivers, I've reinstalled the drivers so that doesn't seem to me the problem. Also, minecraft will launch in vanilla and through another modloader called modrinth. So it doesn't feel like a Java error either but I don't no how to read this debug page so I'm looking for advice. Please help?!  
    • Hello. Basically I made a custom standalone util library (https://github.com/lolhol/Pathfinder3D) and want to use it with my mod. Although I have done the normal jit pack stuff (basically the tutorial on their website) the Minecraft crashes the second it starts saying that it cannot find the name of a class inside of my library. (When I remove the implement(<my library link thingy>) mc launches normally and does not crash (if I comment out the code that uses the custom lib)). Now then, is there a quick fix for this because all of the other questions that I found on this topic were trying to load another mod (again, not what I’m trying to do). Am I doing something wrong?

    • Hello, im kind of a newbie on creating mods, and i been trying to make simples mods so far, Right now, i'm creating a mod which detect an specific type of mob and kill it if reach a certain number, by far the mod is detecting the mob and counting them but at the time it reach the limit number, it don't do anything. The Game don't tweak, don't crash, just i't don't run the method i call, which is kill().   public InteractionResultHolder<ItemStack> use(Level pLevel, Player pPlayer, InteractionHand pUsedHand) { final var TotalCows = pLevel.getNearbyEntities(Cow.class, TargetingConditions.forNonCombat(), pPlayer, pPlayer.getBoundingBox().inflate(5)); if(pLevel.isClientSide){ if(pPlayer.getItemInHand(InteractionHand.MAIN_HAND).getItem() == this.asItem()){ if(!TotalCows.isEmpty()){ if(TotalCows.get(0).isAlive()){ TotalCows.get(0).kill(); } }else{ pPlayer.sendSystemMessage(Component.literal("No hay vacas")); } } } The sendSystemMessage is get triggered, and when i change the method .kill() by any other like send a message it got called, can i get some tips, and a clue of what i'm missing
    • UPD: I DID IT   @Override public void applyEffectTick(LivingEntity livingEntity, int pAmplifier) { Level level = livingEntity.level(); if (!level.isClientSide()) { Holder<DamageType> entropyHolder = level .registryAccess() .registryOrThrow(Registries.DAMAGE_TYPE) .getHolderOrThrow(GTDamageTypes.ENTROPY_KEY); livingEntity.hurt(new DamageSource(entropyHolder), 1); } super.applyEffectTick(livingEntity, pAmplifier); }
