Damage the player on sword swing


DHerls

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am trying to make a sword that damages the player when they swing the sword.  So far, I have been unable to figure out how to do that.  If anyone could help point me in the right direction, that would be great.

 

Thanks!

 

EDIT: I figured out how to check if the player is swinging the sword.  You use the method

 

@Override
public boolean onEntitySwing(EntityLivingBase entityLiving, ItemStack stack) {

//What you want here

return false;
}

 

in the new sword class.  However, I still need to figure out how to damage the player.

Hi,

    Hmm... Well I don't think there is a way to stop the sword from damaging the person you swing it at i.e. if you swing it at a zombie, you will damage the zombie. But there should be 2 such methods-

 

onSwordSwing() - something like that

damageEntity(Entity entity) - something like that

 

I'll look up the sword classes and other classes. Will try to help you ASAP.

Thanks for that, but that only registers when I'm swinging at an entity.  I was looking for something that happens whenever I swing the sword, regardless of what I'm pointing at.  Thank you for your help though.

 

If you're using this:

public boolean onEntitySwing(EntityLivingBase entityLiving, ItemStack stack) {...}

 

Then you've got the swinging entity.

 

From there, would something like "EntityLivingBase.attackEntityFrom(DamageSource.generic, (float)dmg)" do what you're trying to do?

If I am not mistaken, if you want it to be a player:

 

public boolean onEntitySwing(EntityLivingBase entityLiving, ItemStack stack) {

if (entityLiving instanceof EntityPlayer)
{
// Insert Damage Code Here (I'm trying to remember on the spot) It's obvious if you look through the ItemSword class. The damage is getDamageVsEntity, I believe
}

}

Minecraft can do ANYTHING, it's coded in Java and you got the full power of Java behind you when you code. So nothing is impossible.

It may be freaking fucking hard though, but still possible ;)

That's another way to do it. OP didn't specify whether he wanted it to count as a sword hit on the wielder, or just have a "punishment" for swinging it (like a cursed sword). The other reason I went with directly damaging the entity was that it would beat down a zombie who managed to pick up the sword. :)
