[SOLVED][1.19.2] Changing the hitbox of an entity?


Recommended Posts


So I'm creating a mob (Tuff Golem) that can stack on top of one another, and am using the mount/dismount mechanic as the way to do it.  Everything is working fine, except for the hitbox.  If the bottom entity moves under a block that the stacked entities will be inside of, they suffocate and die.

To combat this, I'm going to try to increase and decrease the hitbox of the bottom-most Tuff Golem accordingly depending on how many Tuff Golems are stacked on top of it.

I have these two methods to get the bottom-most Tuff Golem, and the number of Tuff Golems stacked on it:

// Recursively loop through whichever tuff Golem is selected, and return the lowest one.
public TuffGolemEntity getLowestTuffGolem(TuffGolemEntity tuffGolem) {
  if (!tuffGolem.isPassenger()) {
    return tuffGolem;
  } else {
    return (TuffGolemEntity) getLowestTuffGolem(tuffGolem).getVehicle();

// Recursively loop through each Tuff Golem above the selected one until the top one is reached.
public int getNumOfTuffGolemsAbove(TuffGolemEntity tuffGolem, int i) {
  if (!tuffGolem.isVehicle()) {
    return i;
  } else {
    return getNumOfTuffGolemsAbove((TuffGolemEntity) Objects.requireNonNull(tuffGolem.getPassengers()), i + 1);

I'm not quite sure if there's a method to get or change an Entity's hitbox, but if there is, I would appreciate a point in that direction.

Alternatively, if there's a better way to approach this, I'd also love to hear about it!

I appreciate any help!

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.
