Why can't I get an EntityDragonPart via getEntitiesWithinAABB ?

Hello guys!

 

I just discovered that the method

getEntitiesWithinAABB(Class, AxisAlignedBB)

never returns an instance of EntityDragonPart. This is pretty annoying because this prohibits me from creating some automated attacking devices.

However, for some reason the method

getEntitiesWithinAABBExcludingEntity(Entity, AxisAlignedBB)

does return instances of EntityDragonPart. But I don't want to use this method, because I don't want to exclude entities, I want to get every one.

Is there a way I can avoid this issue? And why does it happen?

Nope, it's written like that, but: you can pass null as Entity in excludingEntity, this will give you all entities, including subentities....

 

EDIT: for more info, here 2 core methods from Chunk class, that are doing that, take look at them: getEntitiesOfTypeWithinAAAB, getEntitiesWithinAABBForEntity (=excluding)
