[1.8] AnvilUpdateEvent: Is there a way to see which player is using the anvil?


Recommended Posts

I am attempting to write an event handler for AnvilUpdateEvent (the one that fires early, so it can overrule what the output should be). Unfortunately, the player is not one of the fields provided with this event, and neither is the anvil (the anvil gets as far as the method in  ForgeHooks that fires the event, but it is not relayed to the event itself). Without knowing the player, I can't respect creative mode.


What I am trying to do is allow a few enchantments to be placed by enchanted book onto my custom shears in survival mode. I want to return without doing anything if the player is in creative mode. I also don't want to interfere with creative mode's cost and cost-limit processing.


Is there a way, on the logical server, for my event handler to figure out what player is using the anvil when an AnvilUpdateEvent fires, even though the handler has neither the player nor the anvil to work with?


If not, then some future version of Forge should add the anvil pointer to the event so reflection can be used to extract the private thePlayer field to check on creative mode (or just pass along the isCreative boolean instead).
