[1.7.10]Applying Potion Effects when I am near a Block


Recommended Posts

So I tried mimicing the beacon code.  I know the ticker variable is working but the potion effects are not applying

is there anything wrong with my code?

Forgive me i am new to modding

public PolCanEntity()  {
double ranges = 6;

if(ticker >= 23 ) {

int pollutionlevel = 100;
AxisAlignedBB axis = AxisAlignedBB.getBoundingBox((double)xCoord-ranges, (double)yCoord, (double)zCoord, (double)xCoord + ranges, (double)yCoord + ranges, (double)zCoord + ranges);

List list = this.worldObj.getEntitiesWithinAABB(EntityPlayer.class,axis);
    Iterator ilikepie = list.iterator();
    EntityPlayer player;
    if(pollutionlevel >=100 && ilikepie.hasNext()) {
    	player = (EntityPlayer)ilikepie.next();
	player.addPotionEffect(new PotionEffect(17,1000,1,true));

	ticker = 0;

Is that code in the constructor?


The way I did potion effects for players with blocks was using an event handler class and subscribing to LivingUpdateEvent (I think there might be a PlayerUpdateEvent but I'm not sure).


Then make sure the entity from the event is an instance of EntityPlayer, and if so, check if any blocks nearby are the block you're looking for, then just apply the potion effect to the player.


I'm pretty sure if all you want to do is add a potion effect then Events are the best way to handle it. Otherwise if you want to do more I think you can use the updateEntity method in a TileEntity.



I'll help if I can. Apologies if I do something obviously stupid. :D


If you don't know basic Java yet, go and follow these tutorials.
