Dropping an Item in a server is out of sync


Recommended Posts



I've searched through the forum, but the search engine is terrible (or is just messed up in my browser i don't know), but the thing is that i couldn't find a proper answer.


I've managed to drop an item at the player's feet with par5EntityPlayer.dropItem()...., but if I play on an actual dedicated server the item is duplicated and I can't pick it up,


I've tried use isremote && !isremote but i can't pick the item. It seems out of sync or something.


How would I go about dropping an item in a dedicated server???


NOTE: I'm using minecraft 1.4.7

dedi/integrated is the same thing


can we have code or something ?


I don't know... it seems to be working now... It's weird because sometimes works right away, sometimes you have to use the item a few times in order for the code to work properly:


boolean flushed = false;
long start = System.currentTimeMillis();
ItemStack drop;

public boolean onBlockActivated(World par1World, int par2, int par3,
		int par4, EntityPlayer par5EntityPlayer, int par6, float par7,
		float par8, float par9) {

	if (drop == null) {
		if (par5EntityPlayer.getCurrentEquippedItem() == null) {
			System.out.println("DROP NULL");
			par5EntityPlayer.sendChatToPlayer("DROP NULL");
			return true;

	if (par5EntityPlayer.worldObj.isRemote) {
		return true;

	long end = System.currentTimeMillis();

	if (!flushed) {
		flushed = true;

		drop = par5EntityPlayer.getCurrentEquippedItem().copy();

		if (!par5EntityPlayer.worldObj.isRemote)
			par1World.playSoundEffect(par2, par3, par4, "pablisMod.flush",
					1.0f, 1.0f);

	} else {

		if (end - start > 3000) {
			flushed = false;
			start = System.currentTimeMillis();
			drop = null;
		} else {
			if (drop != null) {
				par5EntityPlayer.entityDropItem(drop, 1);
				drop = null;

			par1World.playSoundEffect(par2, par3, par4, "random.click",
					0.3F, 0.6F);


	return true;


and I noticed that if I use dropItem instead of EntityDropItem the drop never drops...
