[1.19.2] Spawn Feature only in certain chunks


Recommended Posts

I have a feature that I want to spawn only in specific chunk coordinates. The way the coordinates are determined is a little complicated, but I have a function f(chunkX, chunkZ, seed) that determines whether the feature is allowed to spawn, without any reference to world information, just the coordinates. For the sake of example, suppose I want to spawn the feature only in chunks where the X coordinate is equal to the Z coordinate.

My current solution is to create a subclass of PlacementFilter, which for the example I gave would look like

    protected boolean shouldPlace(PlacementContext context, RandomSource rand, BlockPos pos) {
        //return true if ChunkPos(pos) has the same X and Z

This then goes in the List of PlacementModifiers for the PlacedFeature. This approach works, in that it generates correctly in the intended chunks and not at all in the other chunks.

However, I am concerned that this approach may cause issues, as I don't think it will "intelligently" apply the filter, and instead re-check for each instance in the chunk. If I am trying to generate the feature 100 times in the chunks it is supposed to be in, I suspect it will also pick out 100 positions in every other chunk and try to generate them there before getting individually filtered by my PlacementFilter. This could become a significant waste of resources if I have many such features.

Is there a better way to have a feature only spawn in a small minority of chunks, based only on chunk coordinates and seed (not contents)?

You're making a PlacementModifier correct? Regardless of what you choose to do with the feature, it will attempt to generate for every chunk. The placement modifier determines which block positions to apply your feature at within the chunk. So, if you return an empty stream, your feature won't be applied in the chunk. If you return a stream of one or more positions, it will attempt to apply the feature at those positions.

    • Losing a significant amount of money to scammers can be a bizarre experience that leaves you feeling helpless and betrayed. This was the situation I found myself in after investing over a hundred thousand dollars in a crypto platform that turned out to be a scam. I was introduced to this platform by a friend of my cousin, and everything seemed legitimate until it was too late for me to realize that I had been duped. The days following the realization of my loss were some of the darkest I have ever experienced. I was consumed by feelings of depression and desperation as I tried everything in my power to retrieve my hard-earned money. I reached out to various authorities and sought advice from friends and family, but it seemed like there was no way to recover what I had lost. It was during this time that a friend mentioned a platform called Wizard Web Recovery that specialized in recovering funds lost to scams. At first, I was skeptical and hesitant to trust another company with my money, but I was running out of options and decided to give them a chance. Looking back, this decision turned out to be the best one I could have made. From the moment I contacted Wizard Web Recovery, I was impressed by their dedication to helping me recover my funds. Their team of experts guided me through the process step by step, explaining each stage clearly and answering all of my questions along the way. They kept me informed of their progress and worked tirelessly to ensure that my case was given the attention it deserved. I was amazed at how quickly Wizard Web Recovery was able to track down the scammers and retrieve my money. Within a relatively short period, I received the news that my funds had been successfully recovered, and I couldn't believe it. It felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders, and I was filled with gratitude for the team at Wizard Web Recovery who had made it possible.    
    • my game crashed and I have no idea why here is a link to the pastebin of the crash https://pastebin.com/vv89r9vC
    • ok apparently the issue is even stupider than that. the folder the server was in was called "𝓯𝓻𝓮𝓪𝓴𝔂 server" and apparently the special characters in the folder name break the whole damn thing. this is the stupidest thing in the history of ever
    • Thanks, but now I have the 3d model in hand (and in inventory bcz I won't need that anymore) but now when I try to throw it, it doesnt rotate and its just the end of the trident not the head part. Edit: I removed the 3d custom model. I use the original minecraft files. Json and etc. In minecraft the rendering is made in code. I sent the code in the first message. I have mostly the code. But I don't know how to register the renderers like minecraft do. For example, in minecraft there are 2 jsons: trident_in_hand and trident_throwing , I have both of them. They don't render while I have the item in hand. That's the main problem. I checked the code but I still can't figure out how to register and render the entity basically, in hand
