Mob Transformation on LivingTickEvent


Recommended Posts


I am trying to make a drowned transform into a custom mod I made (called Hot Drowned) when it goes through a magma bubble column. I already have the mob fully working in game, but the code for the transformation is giving me trouble. Since I can't edit the drowned code, I tried to make it check on Living Tick Event for a drowned that is doing the ticking and check its position from there in relation to a magma block but its not working. My code is below, thank you in advance.

    @SubscribeEvent(priority = EventPriority.HIGHEST)
    public void entityJoinWorld(LivingEvent.LivingTickEvent event, ServerLevel pServerLevel) {
        System.out.println("Entity Ticked");
        Entity entity = event.getEntity();
        if (entity.isAlive() && entity instanceof Drowned) {
            Drowned drowned = (Drowned) entity;
            BlockPos bPos = BlockPos.of(drowned.blockPosition().get(Direction.Axis.Y));
            BlockState bPosBlock = pServerLevel.getBlockState(bPos);
            int dHieght = bPos.getY();
            if (bPosBlock == Blocks.WATER.defaultBlockState() || bPosBlock == Blocks.MAGMA_BLOCK.defaultBlockState()){
                if (bPosBlock == Blocks.MAGMA_BLOCK.defaultBlockState()){
                    ModEntities.HOT_DROWN.get().spawn(pServerLevel, BlockPos.of(drowned.blockPosition().get(Direction.Axis.Y)), NATURAL);
                }else {
                    for (int x = dHieght + 64; x > 0; x--) {
                        bPos = BlockPos.of(bPos.below().get(Direction.Axis.Y));
                        bPosBlock = pServerLevel.getBlockState(bPos);
                        if (bPosBlock == Blocks.MAGMA_BLOCK.defaultBlockState()) {
                            ModEntities.HOT_DROWN.get().spawn(pServerLevel, BlockPos.of(drowned.blockPosition().get(Direction.Axis.Y)), NATURAL);
                        } else {

Is the code inside the event event gets called? I believe that event listeners needs to be public static and the Level parameter should be retrieved from the event itself (not sure if you can provide it as a listener parameter, I don't think so tbh)

Don't blame me if i always ask for your help. I just want to learn to be better :)
