# Getting a Player to move exactly 1 Block by holding FORWARD

## Recommended Posts

Im trying to get the Player to move Forward exactly one block from its last position. So lets say his last position was 11.54321 etc... I would like him to stop at 12.54321 if he was moving in the Positive X direction. I know I have to account for the player movement speed, and so I made a conditional, but at no point in time are the players previous X coordinate equal to its new X coordinates. Please Help!

Here is the Conditional:

```		new Timer().schedule(
@Override
public void run() {
double x = Minecraft.getMinecraft().thePlayer.posX;
System.out.println(x);
System.out.println(x+.5);
boolean atPosition = true;
Minecraft.getMinecraft().thePlayer.rotationYaw = Minecraft.getMinecraft().thePlayer.rotationYaw+rotation;
Minecraft.getMinecraft().gameSettings.keyBindForward.setKeyBindState(Keyboard.KEY_W, true);
while(atPosition){
System.out.println(Minecraft.getMinecraft().thePlayer.posX);
if(Minecraft.getMinecraft().thePlayer.getPosition().getX() == x+1){
Minecraft.getMinecraft().gameSettings.keyBindForward.setKeyBindState(Keyboard.KEY_W, false);
Minecraft.getMinecraft().thePlayer.rotationYaw = Minecraft.getMinecraft().thePlayer.rotationYaw+rotation;
atPosition = false;
}
}
atPosition = true;
}
},
0
);```

Ignore the Print statement, I was just debugging

Because the position is a float, using == will almost never be true. It especially doesn't help that timing will be less than perfect, so you need to have a tolerance allowance.

It would be better to check for having passed the desired location and aborting as soon as it is detected.

If you've ever tried to position yourself exactly in the center of a block yourself, you would know how tricky it is to be exact with key input.

Apparently I'm a complete and utter jerk and come to this forum just like to make fun of people, be confrontational, and make your personal life miserable.  If you think this is the case, JUST REPORT ME.  Otherwise you're just going to get reported when you reply to my posts and point it out, because odds are, I was trying to be nice.

Exception: If you do not understand Java, I WILL NOT HELP YOU and your thread will get locked.

Ah ok, So it will never be precise, but if I was to change the previous position to a float, would it be more accurate?

Ok so I changed them to a float to allow for a shorter range of numbers, and also added tollerance. But it will not stop, it will still go on forever.

```		new Timer().schedule(
@Override
public void run() {
float x = (float) Minecraft.getMinecraft().thePlayer.posX;
System.out.println(x);
boolean atPosition = true;
Minecraft.getMinecraft().thePlayer.rotationYaw = Minecraft.getMinecraft().thePlayer.rotationYaw+rotation;
Minecraft.getMinecraft().gameSettings.keyBindForward.setKeyBindState(Keyboard.KEY_W, true);
while(atPosition){
if(((float)Minecraft.getMinecraft().thePlayer.posX) >= x+1){
Minecraft.getMinecraft().gameSettings.keyBindForward.setKeyBindState(Keyboard.KEY_W, false);
Minecraft.getMinecraft().thePlayer.rotationYaw = Minecraft.getMinecraft().thePlayer.rotationYaw+rotation;
atPosition = false;
}
}
atPosition = true;
}
},
0
);```

Well, if the player is moving in the negative-X direction.....

• Server keeps getting near the end, then deciding the physics frame is wrong. Heavily modded server, like 170+. Java 17, Forge 40.2.0, Minecraft 18.2. First time using Github, so if the link doesn't work right, please tell me. I would appreciate it if you can solve my server issue. Logs Link  Debug Link
• Thank you for the quick response. I will check with the players, whether anyone is cramming a ton of villagers together melting the collision detection thread. I will also install spark as soon when I am in front of the server again on Friday and report back.
• Something is taking too long on the server thread.   The only clue in that crash is it was doing something with block collision detection for a villager. That does not mean that was the cause. It's just what it was doing at the 60 second timeout.   Try a mod like: https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/spark to diagnose what is taking time on the server thread or otherwise stopping the server thread from progressing. Ask them for help if you can't figure out how to use it from their wiki.
