[1.7.10] Entity Rotation


Recommended Posts

I am setting it directly in the entity (So client I guess).

I used the faceEntity method and changed it to faceBlock.

After the execution of the code the rotation variables are correctly set ( Fishinghook is thrown in the correct direction).

But as said the entity will still face the previous direction until an event occurs.


    public void faceBlock(ChunkCoordinates block)


        double xDifference = block.posX - this.posX;

        double zDifference = block.posZ - this.posZ;

        double yDifference = block.posY - (this.posY + (double) this.getEyeHeight() - 0.5);


        double squareDifference      = Math.sqrt(xDifference * xDifference + zDifference * zDifference);

        double intendedRotationYaw  = (Math.atan2(zDifference, xDifference) * 180.0D / Math.PI) - 90.0;

        double intendedRotationPitch = (-(Math.atan2(yDifference, squareDifference) * 180.0D / Math.PI));

        this.rotationPitch = (float) this.updateRotation(this.rotationPitch, intendedRotationPitch, 30);

        this.rotationYaw = (float) this.updateRotation(this.rotationYaw, intendedRotationYaw, 30);



    private double updateRotation(double currentRotation, double intendedRotation, double maxIncrement)


        double wrappedAngle = MathHelper.wrapAngleTo180_double(intendedRotation - currentRotation);


        if (wrappedAngle > maxIncrement)


            wrappedAngle = maxIncrement;



        if (wrappedAngle < -maxIncrement)


            wrappedAngle = -maxIncrement;



        return currentRotation + wrappedAngle;

A does not imply B here.


What calls this method?

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.


DO NOT PM ME WITH PROBLEMS. No help will be given.
