[1.7.10] Enchanted books not working in anvil


Recommended Posts



I have some trouble with some enchanted books that i've made my villagers sell.


What i do is to create my own tradehandler that implements the IVillageTradeHandler. This works, and i can make my villagers sell what i want them to. I want them to sell enchanted books and those do somehow not work in an anvil. I've noticed that the default enchanted books has a yellow name "Enchanted Book" whereas the ones i have, has a blue name.. I think it has something to do with the way i "make" the book it self. Heres my code in my trade handler showing what im doing:


Random rand = new Random();
Enchantment enchantment = Enchantment.enchantmentsBookList[random.nextInt(Enchantment.enchantmentsBookList.length)];
ItemStack enchantedBook = new ItemStack(Items.enchanted_book, 1);
int lvl = MathHelper.getRandomIntegerInRange(rand, enchantment.getMinLevel(), enchantment.getMaxLevel());
enchantedBook.addEnchantment(enchantment, lvl);


I've also tried using the Items.book instead of the Items.enchanted_book, but this gives the same results.


What im i doing wrong ?

Now im a little confused but isnt that already what im doing if you look at my code ?


I create a new itemstack with Items.enchanted_book that i call enchantedBook. And with that instance i then use enchantedBook.addEnchantment ..

You're using the ItemStack#addEnchantment method; diesieben is saying you need to use the one specific to ItemEnchantedBook - Items.enchanted_book.addEnchantment(...), because enchanted books handle enchantments differently, apparently.


Right, because the book itself is not enchanted, but rather it contains an enchantment (you can do both!)

Apparently I'm a complete and utter jerk and come to this forum just like to make fun of people, be confrontational, and make your personal life miserable.  If you think this is the case, JUST REPORT ME.  Otherwise you're just going to get reported when you reply to my posts and point it out, because odds are, I was trying to be nice.

Alright thanks for that info !


Now since im all new to this.. Could you guys maybe provide an example on the usage ? Im having a hard time understanding it i must say.. I tried it like this:


the addEnchantment method on Item.enchanted_book seems to want the first argument to be an ItemStack. But since i have no ItemStack to define here, as this is on the line where i create it, what should i write ?


ItemStack enchantedBook = new ItemStack(Items.enchanted_book.addEnchantment(enchantedBook, enchData));


The above ofcourse does not work, since the enchantedBook ItemStack i use, is being created on the same line.. This might be a noob question i hope you can handle my low skill level  ;)

You first create an ItemStack containing an Enchanted Book, like you already did. All you need to do is replace your call to ItemStack.addEnchantment with a call to Items.enchanted_book.addEnchantment. As the first parameter pass the ItemStack, as the 2nd parameter pass the EnchantmentData (Enchantment + level).
