[solved] Question about Forge Events


Recommended Posts

I don't personally play with mods, so I haven't run across this myself, but while coding some event stuff a question occurred to me, and I apologize if it isn't very clear.


If multiple mods or even one mod with multiple event handlers handling the same event, what happens?


I assume that's where the priority level comes in, but what if they are all the same priority? What happens if one of the handlers cancels the event?


Would it follow that if your handler has the possibility of canceling the event, you should give it high priority, whereas if your handler needs to be sure the event is going to happen it should have the lowest possible priority?


An example: Two hypothetical mods both use LivingDeathEvent at default priority. Mod 1 wants to prevent the player from dying due to a death ward ability and cancels the event, while mod 2 uses the event to transform the player into a vampire and subsequently respawn normally (as a vampire).


How is order determined in such a case, and is there anything we can do as modders to minimize potential impacts from this sort of scenario (if there are indeed any impacts)?


Thanks for reading,

public boolean post(Event event)
        IEventListener[] listeners = event.getListenerList().getListeners(busID);
        for (IEventListener listener : listeners)
        return (event.isCancelable() ? event.isCanceled() : false);

This is what happens in EventBus.

Simply, all listeners will be #invoke in registration order, for each priority list. (see ListenerList)

By "default", IEventListener is implemented by

    public void invoke(Event event)
        if (handler != null)
            if (!event.isCancelable() || !event.isCanceled() || subInfo.receiveCanceled())

in ASMEventHandler.

Note that you can receive a canceled event with @ForgeSubscribe(receiveCanceled=true). Then you can uncancel it. Only the final state of the event will be accounted for.

You can also register your own IEventListener with ListenerList#register(int, EventPriority, IEventListener).


Fast answer to each of your question:

-All will receive the event if (!event.isCancelable() || !event.isCanceled() || subInfo.receiveCanceled()) if they use the "default" IEventListener.

-Same priority method will receive the event according to the registration order.

-See EventPriority enum to check the priority order. To be sure the event is not canceled, use @ForgeSubscribe(priority=LOWEST, receiveCanceled=true) and uncancel it.

-To minimize logical conflicts, you should always have special conditions, and only "rarely" cancel an event.

    • Hello, I'm creating a mod that should have a classic config file that I create with: ModLoadingContext.get().registerConfig(ModConfig.Type.COMMON, Config.SPEC); but I want also to have into server config folder more files .yml that I handle from the plugin. How can I create that yaml files?
    • Hi, I've been having a problem with Level 4 enchants on tools and items, it will not let me enchant any weapon or item past level 4, level 3 works on somethings but when I try to enchant it will either not show up in the anvil or when using the /enchant command it will say *item does not support the enchantment. I've tried efficiency 4 on a pickaxe and axe and it will not work.
    • Hello! I am posting since I am at the end of the road in terms of googling this solution and/or pouring through github projects. As the title suggests, I am trying to spawn my custom flower into the overworld into existing biomes, nothing crazy just a flower block spawned into the world. I added an entry into forge/biome_modifier called add_dreamcap_mushroom.json. It is as follows: { "type": "forge:add_features", "biomes": [ , "minecraft:plains", "minecraft:jungle", "minecraft:birch_forest", "minecraft:sparse_jungle", "minecraft:forest" ], "features": "herbalistmod:dreamcap_mushroom_patch", "step": "vegetal_decoration" }   I have a directory worldgen/configured_feature with dreamcap_mushroom_patch.json as follows:   { "type": "minecraft:random_patch", "config": { "feature": { "feature": { "type": "minecraft:simple_block", "config": { "to_place": { "type": "minecraft:simple_state_provider", "state": { "Name": "herbalistmod:dreamcap_mushroom_block" } } } }, "placement": [ { "type": "minecraft:block_predicate_filter", "predicate": { "type": "minecraft:matching_blocks", "blocks": "minecraft:air" } } ] }, "tries": 32, "xz_spread": 7, "y_spread": 3 } }   I have a directory worldgen/placed_feature with dreamcap_mushroom_patch.json as follows: { "feature": "herbalistmod:dreamcap_mushroom_patch", "placement": [ { "type": "minecraft:count", "count": 2 }, { "type": "minecraft:in_square" }, { "type": "minecraft:heightmap", "heightmap": "WORLD_SURFACE_WG" }, { "type": "minecraft:biome" } ] }   As far as I know, these are the only files I need in order to generate blocks, etc into the world, yet despite this I have made tons of worlds searching high and low and my block is nowhere to be found. Am I doing something wrong here or missing something obvious? Thanks in advance!  
    • Please read the FAQ for information on how to properly post logs. When you just post them embedded in your message, they are harder to read, which makes it harder to help. I did notice this though, which means you are missing a mod required by a mod you have installed:
