[1.7.10] EntityItem motion problems


Recommended Posts

Hey there, so i've been trying to create a block that acts as a conveyer belt though this should have been an easy task but for some reason when the Item's collide with the block they either do nothing when I mess about with their motion x/y/z it is when I call the moveEntity code that it actually starts moving around but in a teleporting way rather then a slow paced movement.


here is my onEntityCollide from my block class:

public void onEntityCollidedWithBlock(World world, int x, int y, int z, Entity entity)
		if(entity instanceof EntityItem)
			int meta = world.getBlockMetadata(x, y, z);
			EntityItem eItem = (EntityItem) entity;
			double moveX = 0D;
			double moveY = 0D;
			double moveZ = 0D;

			case 0:
				moveZ = 0.25D;

			case 1:

			case 2: 

			case 3:

			eItem.moveEntity(moveX, moveY, moveZ);

I would take a close look at the switch block.

1. Only the south direction will do anything

2. Are you sure those are the right metadata?


Also have you tried Entity#setMotion instead of Entity#moveEntity?


The reason that the south block only had "functionallity" is because it's the first side to experiment with, yes I know for a fact that all meta data's are correct as i've got a onactivation method printing out the blocks metadata.


No, I didn't even see the setMotion method, I'll give it a try and see if it works. Thank you.

so I managed to fix the issue, its now gliding along instead of teleporting. One of the major issues was the !world.isRemote check, but now that i have removed it its instead of resting on top of the block its floating in mid air. but transport for all directions seems to work appart from the height issue. So next up is figuring out a way to disable the despawn and pickup for the EntityItems whiles they are on the transport.
