[1.10] Trying to read schematic files {SOLVED}


Recommended Posts



I'm new to modding. Been learning a lot but I hit a roadblock. I can't seem to read information from schematic files. I want to make structures but not if i have to code it one block at a time. I want to be able to automate it. All of the code examples i've found don't appear to work. It might just be my lack of knowledge. Can anyone provide me with assistance?


Thank you in advance

JNBT is a library that allows you to read them. i've been able to read, length,width,height, the array of block IDs, and the array of meta data IDs. I'm still trying to figure out entities and tileentities. I'm kind of lost on those. Here's the code example i found to use with JNBT.



import java.io.File;

import java.io.FileInputStream;

import java.util.List;

import java.util.Map;

import org.jnbt.ByteArrayTag;

import org.jnbt.CompoundTag;

import org.jnbt.ListTag;

import org.jnbt.NBTInputStream;

import org.jnbt.ShortTag;

import org.jnbt.Tag;


public class HelloWorld {


    private static Tag getChildTag(Map<String, Tag> items, String key, Class<? extends Tag> expected) {

        Tag tag = items.get(key);

        return tag;



    public static void main(String[] args) {

        try {

            File f = new File("Small Temple.schematic");

            FileInputStream fis = new FileInputStream(f);

            NBTInputStream nbt = new NBTInputStream(fis);

            CompoundTag backuptag = (CompoundTag) nbt.readTag();

            Map<String, Tag> tagCollection = backuptag.getValue();


            short width = (Short)getChildTag(tagCollection, "Width", ShortTag.class).getValue();

            short height = (Short) getChildTag(tagCollection, "Height", ShortTag.class).getValue();

            short length = (Short) getChildTag(tagCollection, "Length", ShortTag.class).getValue();


            byte[] blocks = (byte[]) getChildTag(tagCollection, "Blocks", ByteArrayTag.class).getValue();

            byte[] data = (byte[]) getChildTag(tagCollection, "Data", ByteArrayTag.class).getValue();


            List entities = (List) getChildTag(tagCollection, "Entities", ListTag.class).getValue();

            List tileentities = (List) getChildTag(tagCollection, "TileEntities", ListTag.class).getValue();




        } catch (Exception e) {
