[1.7.10] How to add gold?

Recommended Posts

Hey! So, to get right to the point I am trying to add a currency to my mod that will be saved digitally. What I mean is when you pick up a coin it will add it to your overall amount and such. I easily did this in 1.6.4 but in 1.7.10 that's not the case. I just need someone to explain to me how to use the new packet system to communicate with the server about how many coins a specific player has and to add or subtract accordingly. I'm not asking to be hand-fed code here, just for someone to explain how to use the packet system in 1.7.10 with maybe a few examples.

 

Thank you in advance,

 

- Joey

I have seen that tutorial before but, I still couldn't figure out how to tell the server the player got a coin then, add it to their overall amount and update them. I'm sorry if I seem ignorant towards programming; packets just always go over my head.

So, to add gold to someone; I'd send a packet to the server to run the "addGold" method in my GoldKeeper class and that's it?

Ok that's what slightly confuses me. When someone picks up an item, I would use that event and send the packet to the server, correct?

You don't.

 

To send entity reference through packet you want to use entity ID.

 

On IMessage (on server)

entity.getEntityId();

And write it into buffer (int).

 

On receiver client: (read from buffer)

Entity e = world.getEntityByID(msg.entityId);

 

As to your main question - UUID is a 2x long, you can get UUID.getLeastSignificant() and MostSignificant. Those are 2 longs, you can write them to NBT.

1.7.10 is no longer supported by forge, you are on your own.
