[1.8] [SOLVED] Rendering a bounding box


DJD

Recommended Posts

What is the right way to render a bounding box for a selection of points on screen (with the blocks in the bounding box highlighted in some fashion (like transluscent red) ?

 

There appear to be some functions way down in the source code for handling bounding boxes and was wondering how to maybe use those to achieve the effect (e.g. area selected by the player is highlighted).....

Hi

 

I'd suggest

1) Subscribe to the RenderGameOverlayEvent.Pre event

2) Use the Tessellator in GL11.GL_LINE_STRIP to draw the edges of your box

 

I've posted some similar code from one of my mods which might help you with the key bits, there are a couple of aspects that are hard to figure out from scratch.

Thanks ! I was on the right track and looking at looking at some nifty code from: Irtimaled:

Got to reading about the tessalotor thing on the minecraft.net page and figured it was the way to go... j

 

ust couldn't figure where (which event) to fire it (still rudamentary knowledge of all the proper events at this point)....

    • im stuck in a problem whit BlockEntities i cannot solve so im trying to work around it but in the less complex way possible  i think is posible to store data to the minecraft world  in older versions people talk about  WordDataSave i dont find anything about it for 1.20.4  i find a tutorial for player capability in 1.19    here is an event      //########## ########## ########## ##########     @SubscribeEvent     public static void onAttachCapabilitiesPlayer(AttachCapabilitiesEvent<Entity> event) {         if(event.getObject() instanceof Player) {             if(!event.getObject().getCapability(PlayerThirstProvider.PLAYER_THIRST).isPresent()) {                 event.addCapability(new ResourceLocation(mercmod.MOD_ID, "properties"), new PlayerThirstProvider());             }         }     }  soo i made this      //########## ########## ########## ##########     @SubscribeEvent     public static void onAttachCapabilitiesLevel(AttachCapabilitiesEvent<Level> event) {     } i think i can do some witchcraft  here  but is many things don't understand  to start whit i dont get yet how to recall the saved data from a BlockEntity  the handler still in progress the plan is to make a Map to store nbt data using the block coordinates as index later store that map as a big nbt      ########## any way the question is if theres alredy a tutorial for 1.20.4 for this ?? or some alredy working code from someone else doing something similar ?           
    • I tried this, and found out that Oculus is the mod that is crashing the game. I have removed it, and it now works fine! Thanks!
    • Hi @DanielderErbauer, I arrived here as I have the "as it does not exist in Block{minecraft:air}" error in a modpack I am trying to start. It's a long-shot, I know, but as the post that led this to being solved is missing, can I ask if you may recall what it said? Thanks in advance
    • Hm yeah sorry, not seeing anything else that's sticking out, I'd need to debug myself probably. Do you have a github or bitbucket repo? I could poke around when I have time to see what the problem might be.
    • looking around for the capabilities thing i found a piece of code and find this piece of code  //########## ########## ########## ########## @SubscribeEvent public static void addCustomTrades(VillagerTradesEvent event) { if(event.getType() == VillagerProfession.FLETCHER) { System.out.println("\n\n### VillagerProfession.FLETCHER \n\n");//<----------- Int2ObjectMap<List<VillagerTrades.ItemListing>> trades = event.getTrades(); ItemStack stack = new ItemStack(ItemInit.ARROW_STEEL.get(), 16); int villagerLevel = 1; trades.get(villagerLevel).add((trader, rand) -> new MerchantOffer( new ItemStack(Items.EMERALD, 2), stack,1,3,0.02F)); } if(event.getType() == VillagerProfession.TOOLSMITH) { System.out.println("\n\n### VillagerProfession.TOOLSMITH \n\n");//<----------- Int2ObjectMap<List<VillagerTrades.ItemListing>> trades = event.getTrades(); ItemStack stack = new ItemStack(ItemInit.INGOT_STEEL.get(), 1); int villagerLevel = 1; trades.get(villagerLevel).add((trader, rand) -> new MerchantOffer( new ItemStack(Items.EMERALD, 2), stack,10,8,0.02F)); } } //########## ########## ########## ########## the event is aknoledge and execute when the maps load  ### VillagerProfession.FLETCHER  ### VillagerProfession.TOOLSMITH  //########## But is not working      is a random piece of code is not working  could it be than this code is old 1.18 and no valid anymore for 1.20.4 or the thing are this numbers  stack,10,8,0.02F));  i dont know what this numbers means    ########## the question is ¿how to add things to the villager traders    thanks for your attention
