[1.7.2] [Solved] How to make a mob attack with lightning?


Recommended Posts



It should be relatively straightforward; I imagine your attack code just needs to spawn an EntityLightningBolt at the right location (of the enemy) - on the server side only


From WorldServer:


            int i1;
            int j1;
            int k1;
            int l1;

            if (provider.canDoLightning(chunk) && this.rand.nextInt(100000) == 0 && this.isRaining() && this.isThundering())
                this.updateLCG = this.updateLCG * 3 + 1013904223;
                i1 = this.updateLCG >> 2;
                j1 = k + (i1 & 15);
                k1 = l + (i1 >> 8 & 15);
                l1 = this.getPrecipitationHeight(j1, k1);

                if (this.canLightningStrikeAt(j1, l1, k1))
                    this.addWeatherEffect(new EntityLightningBolt(this, (double)j1, (double)l1, (double)k1));

I believe summoning lightning at a player is easier.


int px = worldObj.getClosestPlayerToEntity(this, 64).posX;


That gives you the x position of the player.

Do the same with the other positions of the player (posY and posZ);


worldObj.addWeatherEffect(new EntityLightningBolt(worldObj, px, py, pz));


you could use that in your onUpdate() method.
