[1.8] [SOLVED] Model Bake Event + world.getTileEntity() returns null


Recommended Posts

Currently having problems getting TEs to work and I'm out of ideas for the cause.


I've got a TEOre class extending from Tileentity featuring basically the same functions as the CustomeTileEntity in ModelBakeEventDebug.java


During the FMLInitializationEvent I do

GameRegistry.registerTileEntity(TEOre.class, ModInfo.ModID + ":orete");


My Block Class BlockOreVC extends from BlockContainer and creates the tile entity

    public TileEntity createNewTileEntity(World world, int meta) {
        return new TEOre();

    public IBlockState getExtendedState(IBlockState state, IBlockAccess world, BlockPos pos) {
        TileEntity te = world.getTileEntity(pos);
        if(te instanceof TEOre) {
        	TEOre cte = (TEOre) te;
            return cte.getState();
        } else {
        	if (te == null) {
        		System.out.println("getExtendedState() Error: tileentity is null!");
        	} else {
        		System.out.println("getExtendedState() Error: te is NOT of instance TEOre at pos " + pos);
        return state;

    protected BlockState createBlockState() {
        return new ExtendedBlockState(this, new IProperty[0], TEOre.properties);


I create the blocks in WorldGenDeposits like this:

				world.setBlockState(pos, deposit.block.getDefaultState(), 2);

				if (deposit.block instanceof BlockOreVC) {
					TEOre tileentity = (TEOre)world.getTileEntity(pos);
					if(tileentity != null) {
					} else {
						System.out.println("tileentity was not created?");



When generating a new world however the call to getExtendedState() will return null for world.getTileEntity(pos);

I dont understand why because during creation I can access the tileentity and modify it's state.


Am I missing some client <=> server stuff for tileentities to work?
