[1.6.2] What am I doing wrong? (Creating custom bow)

Okay, so I'm trying to create my own custom bow for my mod.  I've gotten the textures working, but I can't get it to actually fire arrows, or render the drawing icons like with the vanilla bow.  Formatting and a few names and values aside, the code is almost verbatim what's found in the ItemBow class in vanilla.  My code is thus:

 

 

 

package KeepOfMetalAndGold.Items;

import java.util.ArrayList;

import net.minecraft.client.renderer.texture.IconRegister;
import net.minecraft.creativetab.CreativeTabs;
import net.minecraft.enchantment.Enchantment;
import net.minecraft.enchantment.EnchantmentHelper;
import net.minecraft.entity.player.EntityPlayer;
import net.minecraft.entity.projectile.EntityArrow;
import net.minecraft.item.EnumAction;

import net.minecraft.world.World;
import net.minecraftforge.common.MinecraftForge;
import net.minecraftforge.event.entity.player.ArrowLooseEvent;
import net.minecraftforge.event.entity.player.ArrowNockEvent;

public class CompositeBow
  extends Item
{
  private ArrayList<String> BowDrawingFrames = new ArrayList<String>();
  private ArrayList<Icon>   BowDrawingIcons  = new ArrayList<Icon>();
  
  public CompositeBow( int ID )
  {
    super( ID );
    
    this.setMaxStackSize( 1 );
    this.setCreativeTab( CreativeTabs.tabCombat );
    this.setUnlocalizedName( "KOMAGCompositeBow" );
    this.setMaxDamage( 500 );
    
    this.BowDrawingFrames.add( "komag:CompositeBow_drawing_1" );
    this.BowDrawingFrames.add( "komag:CompositeBow_drawing_2" );
    this.BowDrawingFrames.add( "komag:CompositeBow_drawing_3" );
  }
  
  @Override
  public EnumAction getItemUseAction( ItemStack par1ItemStack )
  {
      return EnumAction.bow;
  }
  
  
  public Icon getItemIconForUseDuration( int par1 )
  {
    return this.BowDrawingIcons.get( par1 );
  }
  
  @Override
  public void registerIcons( IconRegister register )
  {
    this.itemIcon = register.registerIcon( "komag:CompositeBow" );
    
    if ( this.BowDrawingFrames.size() >= 1 )
    {
      for ( String string : this.BowDrawingFrames )
      {
        this.BowDrawingIcons.add( register.registerIcon( string ) );
      }
    }
  }
  
  @Override
  public int getItemEnchantability()
  {
      return 12; // A little bit less than iron.
  }
  
  @Override
  public ItemStack onItemRightClick( ItemStack par1ItemStack, World par2World, EntityPlayer par3EntityPlayer )
  {
    ArrowNockEvent event = new ArrowNockEvent( par3EntityPlayer, par1ItemStack );
    MinecraftForge.EVENT_BUS.post( event );
    
    if ( event.isCanceled() == true )
    {
      return event.result;
    }
    
    if ( par3EntityPlayer.capabilities.isCreativeMode || par3EntityPlayer.inventory.hasItem( Item.arrow.itemID ) )
    {
      par3EntityPlayer.setItemInUse( par1ItemStack, this.getMaxItemUseDuration() );
    }
    
    return par1ItemStack;
  }
  
  public int getMaxItemUseDuration()
  {
    return 62000;  // Faster draw than the vanilla bow, to make it more worth the investment.
  }
  
  /*@Override
  public ItemStack onEaten( ItemStack par1ItemStack, World par2World, EntityPlayer par3EntityPlayer )
  {
      return par1ItemStack;
  }*/
  
  @Override
  public void onPlayerStoppedUsing( ItemStack par1ItemStack, World par2World, EntityPlayer par3EntityPlayer, int par4ItemInUseCount )
  {
    int charge = this.getMaxItemUseDuration() - par4ItemInUseCount;
    
    ArrowLooseEvent event = new ArrowLooseEvent( par3EntityPlayer, par1ItemStack, charge );
    MinecraftForge.EVENT_BUS.post( event );
    
    if ( event.isCanceled() == true )
    {
      return;
    }
    
    charge               = event.charge;
    boolean InfiniteUses = par3EntityPlayer.capabilities.isCreativeMode == true || EnchantmentHelper.getEnchantmentLevel( Enchantment.infinity.effectId, par1ItemStack ) > 0;
    
    if ( InfiniteUses == true || par3EntityPlayer.inventory.hasItem( Item.arrow.itemID ) )
    {
      float f = ( float ) charge / 20.0F;
      
      f = ( f * f + f * 2.0F ) / 3.0F;
      
      if ( ( double ) f < 0.1D )
      {
        return;
      }
      
      if ( f > 1.0F )
      {
        f = 1.0F;
      }
      
      EntityArrow entityarrow = new EntityArrow( par2World, par3EntityPlayer, f * 2.0F );
      entityarrow.setIsCritical( f == 1.0F );

      int k = EnchantmentHelper.getEnchantmentLevel( Enchantment.power.effectId, par1ItemStack );

      if ( k > 0 )
      {
          entityarrow.setDamage( entityarrow.getDamage() + ( double ) k * 0.5D + 0.5D );
      }

      int l = EnchantmentHelper.getEnchantmentLevel( Enchantment.punch.effectId, par1ItemStack );

      if ( l > 0 )
      {
          entityarrow.setKnockbackStrength( l + 1 );
      }
      else
      {
        entityarrow.setKnockbackStrength( 1 );
      }

      if ( EnchantmentHelper.getEnchantmentLevel( Enchantment.flame.effectId, par1ItemStack ) > 0 )
      {
          entityarrow.setFire( 100 );
      }

      par1ItemStack.damageItem( 1, par3EntityPlayer );
      par2World.playSoundAtEntity( par3EntityPlayer, "random.bow", 1.0F, 1.0F / ( itemRand.nextFloat() * 0.4F + 1.2F ) + f * 0.5F );

      if ( InfiniteUses == true )
      {
          entityarrow.canBePickedUp = 2;
      }
      else
      {
          par3EntityPlayer.inventory.consumeInventoryItem( Item.arrow.itemID );
      }

      if ( par2World.isRemote == false )
      {
          par2World.spawnEntityInWorld( entityarrow );
      }
    }
  }
}

 

 

 

Can anyone see what I'm doing wrong, here?  I'm seriously stumped...its also not rendering in the proper position in the player's hand, but that's a secondary issue.  I just want the thing to work, at this point.  It takes the arrows from your inventory, and while it damages the bow, the damage disappears the next time I draw the string back.

Only way I've found to get the animation for the pull back is to use code from 1.5.2 combined with the newer code

 

now, you've got yours set out completely different to mine, so I'm just gunna post my code and you can extrapolate from it what you need and see if it helps

as for rendering it in the right position, you need a custom item render

there's a few places that have it posted online but they're kinda hard to find

 

from what I've seen, extending ItemBow or using .setFull3D does nothing really

I tested it with a new class that extends ItemBow with no other code than the constructor

unless there's certain code that needs to be copied over and certain code that doesn't, it doesn't work

 

if you know how to do it without having to use the method I used in my original code, why don't you just show it and/or explain it instead of being so vague? because, honestly, at this point, it kinda seems like you don't really know what you're talking about with this one...

 

 

EDIT:

Also, RavynousHunter

this is the ItemRender for the bow

https://gist.github.com/SanAndreasP/5608824

 

and you need to add

 

		MinecraftForgeClient.registerItemRenderer(YourMod.custombow.itemID, new RenderCustomBow());

 

under your load method in the main mod file

Well, you don't know anything about Java.

Did you ever asked yourself why you extend Item ?  ::)

Anyway, if you want to change the bow textures, do as you would with any item.

Override the registerIcons.

Then, to animate, override :

public Icon getIcon(ItemStack stack, int renderPass, EntityPlayer player, ItemStack usingItem, int useRemaining)

First off, thankee for the pointer with the item renderer, I'll be putting it to use soon.  As for what I've done to make it work?  Here ya go.  Basically, just copy/pasted the ItemBow code and changing the texture mapping to match the composite bow's actual texture.

 

Well, you don't know anything about Java.

Thanks for the pointer.  Yes, I've experience with Java, and your little "comment" really isn't appreciated.  I've been writing code since I was 11 (I'm 24 now); I figured that I'd inherit from Item and not ItemBow in case I wanted to do any fine-tuning that I might not be able to do if I'd inherited from ItemBow.  Yes, I'm learning modding Minecraft as I go, but not Java.  Big difference.

Yes, I know about Java. I know that extending a class means the class inherits everything from the class you've extended

I didn't need to override register icons because I use the func_111206_d way of getting icons, so the item icon was the same

 

if it hadn't been for RavynousHunter explaining in the post below yours, I would've assumed the way that the animation textures are called is the same way, as I didn't know you had to call each individual texture in the array from your location, I just assumed it took the location specified in func_111206_d and added it on, which is what the "this.func_111208_A() + "_" + bowPullIconNameArray" thing does.

 

My error using the vanilla code is simply that I didn't know you had to add the modid in front of the file names in the array, which I hardly think is indicative of me not knowing java.

 

And RavynousHunter, thanks for the code :D it is a lot more compact than my way haha

I hope the ItemRenderer works for you

I think that about inexperience with Java was aimed at me, but he really could do with making himself clearer anyway, not being as vague as possible.

as for rendering it in the right position, you need a custom item render

there's a few places that have it posted online but they're kinda hard to find

 

from what I've seen, extending ItemBow or using .setFull3D does nothing really

 

Woohoo!  That worked, thanks much!  One down, one to go!

 

Guys who copy/paste code trying to look experienced...right.  ???

 

Experience with Java, not Minecraft modding.  Besides, that's like saying you don't learn anything about drawing by tracing.  However, this isn't the place for such a debate, and I'm not looking for recognition, just assistance.

I never said that. :o

I said that taking a picture of a drawing doesn't teach you how to draw.

Write your own code. You'll get a lot more experience that way, i promise. ;)

 

I am, its just easier for me to learn by modifying things that work.  I've learned that jumping in head-long into the deep end usually only ends up with frustration, and I want this project to continue being something which I enjoy doing.  I'm not just taking the code and leaving it at that; I love poking things and seeing what makes them tick.
