[1.7.10]Unknown TileEntity Knowledge?


Recommended Posts

If you really want that stacktrace...

(The "problem" was resolved (EDIT: thanks diesieben for the help!!!), but there is another one.)

There is another problem:

I intended to use some DIY funcs to print info for either debug or implementation.

But it seems the Detection / TE cant print them properly.

I mean, everytime it would just be like Radar at 0 0 0 detects 0 (this is OK) nearby.

I am not testing this at the origin point.








BTW, why there was 503 error just now?

int RadarRange; Range of radar (in blocks)

RadarRangeHoriz and RadarRangeHorizontal is same (did not clean up)

the same applies to RadarRangeVerti


public void updateRadar(int range) {...}

called every tick from mother TE class.

is it possible tha there is problem in line 39-41?


Line 50: DEBUG use only


public boolean getDanger() {...} and public int getEntityCount() {...}

called when nessesary from mother TE class to collect info


EDIT: The code may be messy, but I am trying to list out everything I was doing before simplifying the code into smaller functions. (and also try to construct a usable class.)

  • Don't implement

    . Override

    hasTileEntity(int meta)


Any particular reason why not?  They look equivalent to me in this case?


The javadoc from hasTileEntity() looks like it was written many versions ago and is no longer true.

    * Called throughout the code as a replacement for block instanceof BlockContainer

    * Moving this to the Block base class allows for mods that wish to extend vanilla

    * blocks, and also want to have a tile entity on that block, may.


The only reason now is to allow you to have TileEntity or not depending on the block metadata (block state)?

The root for "does this block+meta have a TE" is forge's hasTileEntity(World, int). If you implement ITileEntityProvider (or extend BlockContainer, comes down to the same thing) the default implementation for hasTileEntity checks that.

I understand that; my question was regarding your statement "Don't implement ITileEntityProvider" - if you don't, then your Block will not have a TileEntity regardless of what you return for hasTileEntity, so you are still stuck with either implementing ITileEntityProvider or overriding Forge's Block#createTileEntity method to return a valid TE, are you not?


Is there a reason, then, NOT to implement ITileEntityProvider?

You already have the logic part of it handled in your radar class, it looks like, though you shouldn't use Minecraft.getMinecraft().thePlayer - that's CLIENT side only player and will crash your game when run on a server.


So how is your block supposed to work? What I mean is, if I place one of these blocks, the way you have it now it will be alerting EVERY player in the game when entities get close to that block. Shouldn't it only alert me or some other player who activates the block at least?


What I would suggest is overriding onBlockPlacedBy in your Block class and storing the player who placed the block in your tile entity class, then you have a server side instance (which you can also send chat messages to, btw) and your block will only notify that one player. If you want, you could make it store a list of players and activating the block (right click) would add or remove you (the player) from the list.


Anyway, if you registered your TileEntity / Block classes and your Block overrides both hasTileEntity and createTileEntity (both Forge methods), then you should be golden.

    • My friends and I are modding to survive But recently I want to use cmd to open the server instead of making the single player game public But when I used two methods to start the server, I encountered two problems first A I used forge to install the server files Created using the original server jar The server was installed successfully and the mod was also loaded successfully. But after I replaced the world file with my survival map, I found that the mod items inside disappeared but could be taken from creation again. So I tried to install the server using forge first B I have studied forge for a long time but successfully installed it. But when I put in mods it crashed But mods can be installed on the server   我和我的朋友們正在mod為了生存 但是最近我想用cmd打開伺服器而不是把單人遊戲公開 但是當我使用兩種方法啟動伺服器時,我遇到了兩個問題 首先AI使用forge安裝伺服器檔案使用原始伺服器jar 建立伺服器已成功安裝,mod 也已成功載入。但是當我用我的生存地圖替換世界文件後,我發現裡面的mod物品消失了,但可以再次從創建中取出。所以我嘗試先使用forge安裝伺服器,BI研究了forge很久但成功安裝了它。但是當我安裝 mods 時它崩潰了但是 mods 可以安裝在伺服器上 我和我的朋友正在mod生存 但最近我想使用cmd開啟伺服器而不是單人遊戲公開   但是當我使用了兩種方法開啟伺服器時遇到了兩種問題   第1個A 我使用了forge安裝伺服器文件 在使用原版伺服器jar建立    伺服器安裝成功 mod也順利加載  但是我將我的生存地圖替換世界文件後發現裡面的mod物品消失了但可以再次從創造拿取  所以我嘗試使用forge安裝伺服器   第2個B forge我研究了很久但也成功安裝了 但是當我放入 mods 之後發生了崩潰 但是mods在1A伺服器上是可以安裝的 Ps 我用谷歌翻譯 so    
    • That’s probably not it because as I stated I’ve done it before. I did it like deadass 10 - 20 times when trying to learn to make this mod pack because I kept wanting to reset my profiles and such. So it definitely works, it looks like maybe the creephosting files were the things that couldn’t be reached I tried reading the crash log
    • I don't know if this is the right place or not, but I have put together a custom modpack and I am in need of others to help me. It's a questing modpack with a lore book i'm currently writing out through Patchouli, and i am in need of somebody who will assist me in making the quests for the pack. It's a Zombie apocalypse modpack inspired by Deceasedcraft  with a tinge of magic and RPG mechanics via Mine and slash. Is there anybody willing to assist me as i'm one person building a modpack I could also use help with optimizations since that's not really my strong suite.

    • Hello, is it possible to upgrade from server 1.16.5 forge to 1.20.1 forge without losing a thing? and how do I do it? You need to change "forge-1.16.5-36.2.35.jar, minecraft_server.1.16.5.jar" and other modes.
