[1.7.10] Entity Name


Recommended Posts

Look at the code for render player.  I've found it helpful to limit the distance it can be seen as well as direct line of sight.  Avoids detection through wall.

@Elyon it worked :) thank you



How would i get it to say something when the custom entity dies? In my case i need it to say "Smith was killed by Player"


If it is your custom entity, you can override the onDeath() method.


For general entities you can use handle the LivingDeathEvent.

Make a list of all the player entities in the world and use a for loop to go through them and add a message to all of them.


I have something similar in my mod, and this is how I would use it in your case (put it all in the event or method of your preference):


List<EntityPlayerMP> players = world.playerEntities;

for (int i = 0; i < players.size(); i++) {
players.get(i).addChatMessage(/* Insert Message Here */);


You could probably also do:


for (EntityPlayerMP player : world.playerEntities) {
player.addChatMessage(/* Insert Message Here */);


I don't know about the second method, but the first method works fine for me.



Minecraft can do ANYTHING, it's coded in Java and you got the full power of Java behind you when you code. So nothing is impossible.

It may be freaking fucking hard though, but still possible ;)
