[SOLVED][1.8.9]Custom TNT Entity is a white cube

Recommended Posts

I have searched the forums for this issue, and after looking at about 10 different threads, I have only found a single answer that (should have) helped me with this issue:



I suspect that your fuse counter (variable within your entity class) does only change within the serverside scope, which means the fuse won't be visible to the client and thus rendering your entity white all the time.

You need to sync the fuse with the client and the easiest way to do this is to use a DataWatcher.

Define a new DataWatcherObject (with this.dataWatcher.addObject(...)) within entityInit

on the server side (if worldObj.isRemote == false) set the object's value to the fuse variable in your onUpdate method after it gets updated with dataWatcher.updateObject(...)

on the client side (if worldObj.isRemote == true)  set the value of the fuse variable to the dataWatcherObject's value with getWatchableObjectInt(...)


If you don't understand what I mean, here have some pseudocode:

Entity Class
    dataWatcher->addObject(id, Integer.valueOf(0))    | id must be unique! If you get a crash because an already given ID, try another one
                                                      | second param must be casted to the datatype you wanna put in there, here Integer (BTW, the cast is not pseudocode)

onUpdate(): (at the end within the method)
    if world is not remote:
        dataWatcher->updateObject(id, fuse)    | id must be the same as the above defined one
        fuse = dataWatcher->getWatchableObjectInt(id)    | id, same as above




After following these instructions, my entity is still a white cube. Here is my code:

RenderingRegistry#registerEntityRenderingHandler(Class<T>, IRenderFactory<? super T>)

You should also use
