Checking if a block is within a radius of player?


Recommended Posts

I've done a quick test.

In the constructor add this



And then override the randomDisplayTick method like this

    public void randomDisplayTick(World worldIn, BlockPos pos, IBlockState state, Random rand)
    	EntityPlayer player = worldIn.getClosestPlayer(pos.getX(), pos.getY(), pos.getZ(), 100);
    	if(player == null)
    		System.out.println("PLAYER FAR");
    		System.out.println("PLAYER NEAR");


Unfortunately this will not work on multiplayer (it takes only the closest player, not ALL the players in that radius, but i will do more tests ;)

Don't blame me if i always ask for your help. I just want to learn to be better :)

I haven't got the exact idea down or what my "wasteland" idea is, so lets use a silly example.


Lets say the world is really hot and I have air conditioning blocks.  The closer you are to this ac block, the less hot you are.  The further away you are, the more hot you are and the more chance you have of losing health.


While that's not exactly how the player will see it, that is exactly what the code will be doing.  (Kinda like your health could be the number of potatoes you have, and if you have 0 potatoes, you die... Idek  hahaha!)
