[1.6.4]Random tickRate?

Recommended Posts

I have set this up and it works. (I don't know if it is the right way though)

    public void onBlockAdded(World par1World, int par2, int par3, int par4)
    {
            par1World.scheduleBlockUpdate(par2, par3, par4, this.blockID, this.tickRate(par1World));
    }

    public int tickRate(World par1World)
    {
    	return 6000;
    }

    public void updateTick(World par1World, int par2, int par3, int par4, Random par5Random)
    {
        par1World.setBlock(par2, par3, par4, Mod.Block.blockID);
                   
    }

 

Basically after about 5 minuets I am making my block change into a different block but I don't want it to be exactly 6000 ticks for each one. I have every thing setup and it works I just want to know if I can make the block change randomly after 6000 ticks.

//declare this:
public int tickcount
//in the constructor:
this.setTickRandomly(true);
//and then add:
public void updateTick(World par1World, int par2, int par3, int par4, Random par5Random)
    {
if(tickcount < 50)
//Or a different value, you'll have to play around with it.
{
       tickcount++
}
else{
par1World.setBlock(par2, par3, par4, Mod.Block.blockID);
}
    }

That should be a lot more random than you have, still not sure if it's what you're looking for.

It's essentially the same as the code that farmland uses to decide if it is going to go back to being dirt, but with a counter in order to make it last longer.

There were errors when I added it this is what I have now with no errors but nothing is happening?

//declare this
public int tickcount;

//In the Constructor
        this.setTickRandomly(true);

//----
public void updateTick(World par1World, int par2, int par3, int par4, Random par5Random)
        {
	if(tickcount < 50)
	{
		tickcount++;  // <--- it says  insert ";" to complete BlockStatements
	}
	else
	{
		par1World.setBlock(par2, par3, par4, Mod.Block.blockID);
	}
    }

Just change the value of 50 to way lower, every number will give you on average 47 seconds, so setting 5 instead of 50 will change the block in roughly 4 minutes, but it could be way less or way more than that, depending on when the random ticks get assigned to the blocks. I'm pretty tired, don't know why I put 50 there, that would take something like an hour to change.

Hi

 

Random ticks and scheduled ticks are not the same thing.  Random ticks occur randomly and are for things like leaves disappearing when not attached to a tree, farmland reverting to dirt, water turning to ice, etc.

 

Scheduled ticks are for things like water, buttons, etc.

 

I think your original code was pretty close already, i.e. you placed the block and 6000 ticks later it changes?

 

So what happened when you changed your 6000 to 6000 +Random.nextInt(100)?

is your block class extending Block?

This code is working perfect for me:

public class ExampleBlock extends Block 
	{
		public ExampleBlock (int id, Material material) 
		{
			super(id, material);
		}
		@Override
		public void onBlockAdded(World world, int x, int y, int z) {
			world.scheduleBlockUpdate(x, y, z, this.blockID, this.tickRate(world));
		}
		@Override
	    public int tickRate(World par1World)
	    {
	    	return 6000;
	    }

	    public void updateTick(World par1World, int par2, int par3, int par4, Random par5Random)
	    {
	        par1World.setBlock(par2, par3, par4, Block.dirt.blockID);
	                   
	    }
	}

Yeah but this way has a minimum value now, for instance:

public class ChemRack extends Block 
		{
			public ChemRack (int id, Material material) 
			{
				super(id, material);
			}

			@Override
			public void onBlockAdded(World world, int x, int y, int z) {

				world.scheduleBlockUpdate(x, y, z, this.blockID, this.tickRate(world));
			}

			@Override
		    public int tickRate(World par1World)
		    {
				Random random = new Random();
		    	return 4000+random.nextInt(2000);
		    }


		    public void updateTick(World par1World, int par2, int par3, int par4, Random par5Random)
		    {
		        par1World.setBlock(par2, par3, par4, Block.dirt.blockID);
		    }
		}

has a minimum tick value of 4000, and a maximum of 6000, you can adjust to what you'd like.

I was under the assumption that the tick value of 6000 worked fine, and adding the random integer made it go haywire, which is why I had you try the other way. this is much more reliable.

public int tickRate(World par1World, Random random)
    {
    	return 6000 + random.nextInt(100);
    }

You want something like that?

 

Bad modder!  No cookie!  That function is no longer an override.

 

public int tickRate(World par1World)
    {
    	return 6000 + par1World.rand.nextInt(100);
    }

 

Magic!

Apparently I'm a complete and utter jerk and come to this forum just like to make fun of people, be confrontational, and make your personal life miserable.  If you think this is the case, JUST REPORT ME.  Otherwise you're just going to get reported when you reply to my posts and point it out, because odds are, I was trying to be nice.

 

Exception: If you do not understand Java, I WILL NOT HELP YOU and your thread will get locked.

 

DO NOT PM ME WITH PROBLEMS. No help will be given.
