[1.19.2, SOLVED] Item usage on mobs


Recommended Posts

Hello. I'm working on update for my mod from minecraft 1.12.2 to minecraft 1.19.2 and I got a problem with item usage on mobile.

In 1.12.2 I used "itemInteractionForEntity" method for it. It looks like in 1.19.2 it's called "interactLivingEntity".

Everything fine when I use it on my own mob, or some others like parrots, but for such mobs as cat and wolves it doesn't work.

I spent some time trying to investigate this problem and debug my code, and I found that item "interactLivingEntity" method doesn't trigger for those pets at all.

Could someone please help me with it? What am I doing wrong?


Here is a link on my item https://github.com/NightKosh/Sophisticated-wolves/blob/feature/1.19.2_update/src/main/java/sophisticated_wolves/item/ItemDogTag.java

That's because the interaction that happens on right click for tamed animals (like the wolf and cat) forces them to sit, which is a consumable action, preventing the stack logic from executing. Since the only hook to get around this is an event, you would need to subscribe to `PlayerInteractEvent$EntityInteract` and call the `#interactLivingEntity` method on your item stack there.

Follow the code through from Mob.interact() for a cat.

It will pretty much ignore you unless your item is food.


Unfortunately, there is no item tag for name tags.

Mob.checkAndHandleImportantInteractions() hardwires the vanilla name tag item instance for special handling instead of usiing an item tag.

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.
