[Solved] Entity render method not being called

Recommended Posts

I have an entity extending EntityThrowable, I made a special renderer for it and I can't seem to let it work, the doRender method doesn't even get called.

I should mention that I didn't call super.onUpdate(), but I rather copied the code in it (and called onEntityUpdate which is called in the Entity class), because I wanted to change some things in the original update call.

 

Here's my EntityThrowable class:

 

public class EntityElementCharge extends EntityThrowable {

protected EntityPlayer thrower;
protected float speed;
protected double initialX, initialY, initialZ;

public EntityElementCharge(World world) {
	super(world);
}

public EntityElementCharge(World world, EntityPlayer player, float maxDistance, int tickAge) {
	super(world);
	this.thrower = player;

	float radian = (float)Math.PI / 180.0F; 

	MovingObjectPosition playermop = Utilities.getEntityMOP(world, player, maxDistance, true, true);
	double[] pitchYaw = Utilities.calculatePitchYawFromCoords(
			player.posX, player.posY + player.getEyeHeight(), player.posZ,
			playermop.blockX + 0.5, playermop.blockY + 0.5, playermop.blockZ + 0.5);
	double pitch = pitchYaw[0];
	double yaw = pitchYaw[1];

	setLocationAndAngles(player.posX, player.posY + player.getEyeHeight(), player.posZ, (float)yaw, (float)pitch);

	// copied from setPosition (since we're not using it).
        double bw = (double)this.width / 2.0;
        double bh = (double)this.height;
        this.boundingBox.setBounds(posX - bw, posY - (double)this.yOffset + (double)this.ySize, posZ - bw, posX + bw, posY - (double)this.yOffset + (double)this.ySize + bh, posZ + bw);

        this.initialX = this.posX;
        this.initialY = this.posY;
        this.initialZ = this.posZ;
        
	this.yOffset = 0;

	this.speed = 0.2;

	this.motionX = -Math.sin(this.rotationYaw * radian) * Math.cos(this.rotationPitch * radian) * this.speed;
	this.motionY = -Math.sin(this.rotationPitch * radian) * this.speed;
	this.motionZ = Math.cos(this.rotationYaw * radian) * Math.cos(this.rotationPitch * radian) * this.speed;
	this.setThrowableHeading(this.motionX, this.motionY, this.motionZ, 1.5F, 1.0F);
}

@Override
protected void onImpact(MovingObjectPosition mop) { }

@Override
public void onUpdate() {
	this.lastTickPosX = this.posX;
        this.lastTickPosY = this.posY;
        this.lastTickPosZ = this.posZ;
        this.onEntityUpdate();
        //... a lot of lines copied from super.onUpdate() and modified ...
       	}

@Override
public boolean handleWaterMovement() {
	return false;
}

@Override
protected float getGravityVelocity() {
	return 0;
}
}

 

 

Here's the renderer class (nothing fancy, just testing):

 

public class RenderElementCharge extends Render {

@Override
public void doRender(Entity entity, double x, double y, double z, float f1, float f2) {
	System.out.println("test"); // should get spammed with test even for my entity existing in 5 tick only, but I don't
}

@Override
protected ResourceLocation getEntityTexture(Entity entity) {
	return null;
}
}

 

 

Registering code:

 

Registering entity in base mod's preInit:

EntityRegistry.registerModEntity(EntityElementCharge.class, EntityNames.ENTITY_ELEMENT_CHARGE, eid++, Magematica.instance, 75, 3, true);

 

Registering renderer in ClientProxy's init:

RenderingRegistry.registerEntityRenderingHandler(EntityElementCharge.class, new RenderElementCharge());

The Entity spawns correctly, and goes where it should go (I made it print where it is every update), could it be because it is server-side only?

 

Entity spawn code:

EntityElementCharge charge = new EntityElementCharge(player.worldObj, player, 5, 5); // server-sided only
player.worldObj.spawnEntityInWorld(charge);

 

Common Proxy (nothing is done here):

public class CommonProxy {

public void preInit() {

}

public void init() {

}
}

 

Client Proxy:

public class ClientProxy extends CommonProxy {

@Override
public void preInit() {
	RenderingRegistry.registerBlockHandler(new TestRenderer());
}

@Override
public void init() {
	FMLCommonHandler.instance().bus().register(new KeyInputHandler());
	RenderingRegistry.registerEntityRenderingHandler(EntityElementCharge.class, new RenderElementCharge());
	Initialization.registerKeyBindings();
}
}

 

Proxy's declaration and base mod's init-preinit:

@SidedProxy(clientSide="insnmods.client.ClientProxy", serverSide="insnmods.common.CommonProxy")
public static CommonProxy proxy;

@EventHandler
public void preInit(FMLPreInitializationEvent event){
	//... registering blocks and items ...
EntityRegistry.registerModEntity(EntityElementCharge.class, EntityNames.ENTITY_ELEMENT_CHARGE, eid++, Magematica.instance, 75, 3, true);
	proxy.preInit();
}	

@EventHandler
public void init(FMLInitializationEvent event){
	//... registering crafting recipes ...
	proxy.init();
}

Strangely enough, it gets called perfectly when spawned client-side. It means everything is registered correctly, just that the server is not notifying the clients.

Also I now noticed that onUpdate is called only once, since anything printed there is printed once even if it is called in both sides.
