Spawning in entity: Error


Recommended Posts

So i'm making an entity which uses a similar model to that of a horse (so I copied everything from ModelHorse into a class which will be used by my entity and renamed everything so it would work), and I made a render class along with an entity class. In the main class I registered it and made the spawn egg, but whenever I try to spawn it into the world I just get an error message in the console.


Error message:

Could it be that i'm calling it wrong, or do you think it's something else?

Before I started anything to do with modding, I made sure to read a few java documents and do some exercises to learn some of the stuff needed, it's just abstract classes and a few other things weren't covered. Also making the class abstract was an alternative to importing net.minecraft.entity.EntityAgeable, which I was trying to avoid doing as I was trying to cut down on the amount of unnecessary imports.

Well, abstract classes can't be instanciated.

It is their main property.

This doesn't make any sense. You can also do both or neither.

One of my personal rules is: "Optimize a working code, not the other way around"

Right, so now my entity spawns in the world and has a shadow, hitbox and sounds. However it's invisible. The console is saying that my entity can't be cast to EntityHorse, and i'm sure that I must be missing something in my RenderPegasus class.
