[1.7.10] Rendering enormous entities


Recommended Posts

So I'm trying to render a ludicrously big entity. Approximately 350 blocks long.


I am pretty much at a loss on how to increase it's render distance high enough for practical use. I've tried setting the tracking range to 400 and I've increased the renderDistanceWeight. It's pretty apparent that I'm running into some other limitation (or I'm missing something very obvious) but I'm rather new to this and I'm clueless as to what it is.



Now the obvious solution would be to scale down the size of the model. But that's no fun now is it?

Your entity is larger than the entire volume of world being loaded.

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.

Sorry, made a mistake, it's 280 blocks, not 350, I'm thinking of the wrong scale. Still completely ridiculous but at least it fits now with some degree (albeit very slight) of reason


That's still 17 chunks long.  The loaded size of the world is typically only 15 or so.

Even at the maximum render distance (21 chunks) your entity is still 83% of that full diameter.  There is no way in HELL you are going to make this work.

You could say that entities are capped by two things:


1. If they are loaded to world.

2. If they are being tracked.


1st one won't allow you to see entities beyond chunks loaded by server (and sent to client) simply because those chunks and their entities are not there (not loaded).

So yeah - loading is something close to 15 chunks (about 256 blocks I think).


2nd is a tracking cap, which is directly related to chunks being loaded - entity tracking is capped at 256 blocks (or something like that).


Now, one could ask if it would be possible to beat it?

You could load chunks manually and send them to clients manually. Solving 1st problem probably wouldn't require ASM (I am assuming that since in vanilla itself there is a situation, often when you have lag, when you move you don't load new chunks, but old stay far away - logically you could simply load/send ones far away).


The real problem is with 2nd since it is capped internally - you can track it back from EntityTracker#addEntityToTracker to stuff like #setViewDistance and other distance-related stuff which is directly capped by 15. So yeah - it will require ASM to override shit-ton of stuff - almost impossible to do that. :)

1.7.10 is no longer supported by forge, you are on your own.

Perhaps the best option would be to cut it to half the original size (which was oversized anyway). 175 blocks is still big but we've gotten stuff in this size range to work fine in the past. An extra 50 blocks or so on the render distance (which is apparently 200 right now but I'm not sure I believe that) would make it mostly bearable. It also looks like I'd have to make the texture at half scale anyway, don't fancy using 8k textures.


I think for now I'll take the cheap (sensible) option, hopefully it'll still function fine at a reduced size. I can only really handle banging my head against one "impossible" task at a time.


Might come back to this problem later though.

You could split the entity into multiple smaller entities.


That sounds like it could work, the model is already structured so it can be easily cut into segments. Might get a bit complicated dealing with the collision but it's certainly possible, just a bit too big of a job to be done now.


Cutting it into two, with one entity at either end should do it right?

    • Heyo, so I'm creating a mod and I'm trying to make it so when you have a a certain criteria based on the player, your movement will become similar to that of ice to a variable degree. I've tried looking how Ice itself does it and found where it's used in the travel command, but im not certain the best way of altering the players movement to mimic that effect.  Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

    • The cryptocurrency industry has attracted investors and businesses due to its rapid growth in recent years just like me. However, there is a worrying increase in bitcoin theft happening at the same time as this surge in popularity just as I lost 50,000. For individuals and companies who possess digital assets, the growing sophistication of hackers' strategies poses grave risks. Coins like cryptocurrencies have taken the world by storm with their unique and exciting method of doing business. The growing popularity of virtual currencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum is accompanied, nevertheless, with an increased risk of theft. Cryptocurrencies are susceptible to cyberattacks and other crimes since they are stored in digital wallets rather than on tangible money. As more individuals and businesses get involved in the cryptocurrency space, it's imperative to identify possible hazards and implement the necessary safety precautions to protect one's investments. Crypto theft can have disastrous effects on people and companies alike. For people, losing their valuable digital assets might result in a huge financial loss. Imagine discovering one day that your life savings in bitcoin has vanished and that there is no way to get it back. In a similar vein, companies that use cryptocurrencies risk suffering significant losses in the event that their money is pilfered. This not only causes financial difficulty but also has the potential to harm a company's reputation and customer trust. Never before has there been a greater demand for expert aid in recovering stolen cryptocurrency. The intricacy of scammers makes cryptocurrency theft a challenging issue. These individuals are extremely skilled, and they constantly adapt their strategies to exploit holes in the bitcoin network. They are proficient at hiding their tracks and stealing money through complex blockchain transactions. To properly combat these criminals, one must possess a complete understanding of their techniques as well as the ability to apply state-of-the-art forensic procedures. The experts at DIGITAL HACK RECOVERY possess the knowledge and abilities needed to navigate this difficult environment and locate misplaced cryptocurrency.
