[1.10.2][SOLVED]Creating a method for spawning particles on the server side


Recommended Posts

I want to spawn particles based on a given item stack (




), trouble is, particles are client sided and the places in the code where I want the effects are all server sided. I created a method to spawn them so I didn't have to type out the code over and over, but that doesn't help the fact that it's the wrong side. I'm aware of


s, although since I need a given


and they only take booleans, ints, floats etc. (right?), I don't think they will be much use.


Here's the method so far, please help improve upon it :)

public void spawnEatParticles(ItemStack stack) {
if(stack.getItem() instanceof ItemBlock) {
	Block block = ((ItemBlock)stack.getItem()).getBlock();
	for(int i = 0; i < 20; i++) {
		this.worldObj.spawnParticle(EnumParticleTypes.BLOCK_CRACK, this.headPosition.getX() + (double)this.rand.nextFloat() - (this.getPosition().getX() - this.posX) - 0.5, this.headPosition.getY() + (double)this.rand.nextFloat() - (this.getPosition().getY() - this.posY), this.headPosition.getZ() + (double)this.rand.nextFloat() - (this.getPosition().getZ() - this.posZ) - 0.5, (this.rand.nextInt(6) - 3) / 5, 0.1, (this.rand.nextInt(6) - 3) / 5, new int[] {Block.getIdFromBlock(block)});
else {
	for(int i = 0; i < 20; i++) {
		this.worldObj.spawnParticle(EnumParticleTypes.ITEM_CRACK, this.headPosition.getX() + (double)this.rand.nextFloat() - (this.getPosition().getX() - this.posX) - 0.5, this.headPosition.getY() + (double)this.rand.nextFloat() - (this.getPosition().getY() - this.posY), this.headPosition.getZ() + (double)this.rand.nextFloat() - (this.getPosition().getZ() - this.posZ) - 0.5, (this.rand.nextInt(6) - 3) / 5, 0.1, (this.rand.nextInt(6) - 3) / 5, new int[] {Item.getIdFromItem(stack.getItem()), stack.getMetadata()});

If you want code running on the server to trigger something on the client (or vice versa), you need to send a packet.


In this case, vanilla already has a method to do this for you:



Please don't PM me to ask for help. Asking your question in a public thread preserves it for people who are having the same problem in the future.

    • Remove these mods and combine OptiFine HD U I6 with Forge 47.2.18 Start with Optifine - without any other mods - if this works, add the mods one by one or in groups until you find the mod, conflicting with Optifine
    • Ok yeah I think this might be where the problem starts. For starters, I think you can get rid of your RecipeType impl and make it a static constant instead. I'm not 100% sure this will fix it but it's posssible. RuneInscribingRecipe public class RuneInscribingRecipe implements Recipe<SimpleContainer> { public static final RecipeType<RuneInscribingRecipe> RECIPE_TYPE = new RecipeType<>(){}; // .... @Override public RecipeType<?> getType() { return RECIPE_TYPE; } // .... } RuneInscriberMenu private Optional<RecipeHolder<RuneInscribingRecipe>> getCurrentRecipe() { SimpleContainer inventory = new SimpleContainer(2); inventory.setItem(BASE_INPUT_SLOT, this.inventory.getStackInSlot(BASE_INPUT_SLOT)); inventory.setItem(TEMPLATE_INPUT_SLOT, this.inventory.getStackInSlot(TEMPLATE_INPUT_SLOT)); List<RecipeHolder<RuneInscribingRecipe>> list = this.blockEntity.getLevel().getRecipeManager().getRecipesFor(RuneInscribingRecipe.RECIPE_TYPE, inventory, this.blockEntity.getLevel()); if (list.isEmpty()) { return Optional.empty(); } return Optional.of(list.get(0)); }   Also, this here is a little suspicious where you're getting the `this.inventory.getStackInSlot` calls. I'd try and make sure those are what you expect they are with either a Debug line in IDE or print statement SimpleContainer inventory = new SimpleContainer(2); inventory.setItem(BASE_INPUT_SLOT, this.inventory.getStackInSlot(BASE_INPUT_SLOT)); System.out.printf("CHECKING BASE INPUT OF RECIPE: %s\n", this.inventory.getStackInSlot(BASE_INPUT_SLOT)); inventory.setItem(TEMPLATE_INPUT_SLOT, this.inventory.getStackInSlot(TEMPLATE_INPUT_SLOT)); System.out.printf("CHECKING TEMPLATE INPUT OF RECIPE: %s\n", this.inventory.getStackInSlot(TEMPLATE_INPUT_SLOT)); ^ See what the result of those print statements are, make sure they're right
    • Upon testing again after adding them, the game still doesn't crash however the resource packs are still unfortunately broken.
    • Hi! Can someone please point me to the correct FAQ or place? I'm not able do DuckDuckGo myself out of this one. As you can hopefully see, chunks are not rendered. I run a forge server, fresh install on a linux VM. Curseforge on the Win11 client with Embeddium, Oculus and Unbound shader. No mods. Forge 47.2.23 on server & client.  No errors, no crashes, no apparent CPU or RAM issues with the VM. This screenshot was captured while creative, but the same happens when flying in survival. Waiting (floating) for a few minutes sooner or (often) later, lets the missing chunks appear. Usually takes 5-10 minutes.  When on a local game, the chunks appear slowly, but they do appear without pause.   This must be something simple, obvious, but I can't find the correct "search words" to find my way out. "Chunks not loading / rendering" didn't help. Browsing several forums neither.
