Get Entity Hit by Custom Arrow.


Recommended Posts

How am I get to get the entity hit by a custom arrow.


For example, I'm going to create a fire bow (w/o enchantments) - not doing this but just an example.


Is there a method / event I can use? I am extending my arrow class to EntityArrow (also).


Any help would be appreciated! :D

Look at how I've done it (important lines are marked): https://github.com/SanAndreasP/EnderStuffPlus/blob/master/java/sanandreasp/mods/EnderStuffPlus/registry/ServerEvents.java#L122-L124


Basically you use the LivingHurtEvent and check if the event.source.getSourceOfDamage() is an instance of your custom arrow class, if yes, do your stuff.

This thread makes me sad because people just post copy-paste-ready code when it's obvious that the OP has little to no programming experience. This is not how learning works.

You could do that, but it's much cleaner (in my opinion) to take care of that inside of your projectile entity class, much like EntityThrowable etc. do. It's more difficult since EntityArrow's code is a mess, but if you break everything up into manageable pieces in your sub-class, you can avoid EntityArrow's onUpdate entirely and make your custom arrows extremely versatile.


Check it out.
