Spawning lightning and big explosions


Recommended Posts

I have a block that ticks randomly and would like it so it creates lightning and explosions.

I have seen several variations of spawn lightning but none of them draw the lightning, only fire appears.

Explosions on the other hand, don't happen at all (I only want cosmetic ones)


    public void updateTick(World world, int x, int y, int z, Random rand)
        log.info("Update @ "+x+" "+y+" "+z);
    	if (rand.nextBoolean()) {
    		EntityLightningBolt lightning = new EntityLightningBolt(world, x, y+1, z);
    	else {
            world.spawnParticle("largeexplode", x, y, z, 0.0D, 0.0D, 0.0D);


The text is being displayed but nothing appears

I have never used addWeatherEffect, but I have spawned lightining using a different line.


instead try:

EntityLightningBolt lightning = new EntityLightningBolt(world, x, y+1, z);


As for the explosions:

world.createExplosion(lightning, lightning.posX, lightning.posY, lightning.posZ, <Explosion Strength, Go With A # Around 4>, false);
