# 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.....

• Thanks. I removed the data component from item registration and the game boots fine now. However now when I try to call the set() method on my item stack during the item's useOn method, it still throws an error that the registry object is not present. I have registered the data component along with all of my other modded content in the main mod class, so I am at a genuine loss as to why this is still happening. I am new to these forums, am I allowed to link the github repo?
• hi I don't really understand I'm not able to tell what that's for?
• Forge fires RegisterEvent (which is used internally by DeferredRegister) for each registry in a specific order, so changing the registration order in your code won't help. I haven't actually been able to run my mod since 1.20.6 because I'm waiting on Item Capabilities, so I haven't encountered this error myself. It looks like you can't use your DataComponentType during Item registration, so you probably need to get/add it on demand with getOrDefault and set, instead of in registration.
• Try posting logs per the FAQ banner at the top of the page, it might provide information that would help figure out what is going wrong. I split your comment into a new topic, because even though you said it's "the same problem" as the original poster, you have a different setup than that person, it's not the same problem.
• Unfortunately those screenshots do not provide any useful information. Try to post logs per the FAQ banner link at the top of the page, they may have information that would show what is going wrong.
