Interfacing With EntityPlayer to render effects when swimming

Recommended Posts

Ok i am making a mod that overhauls the fluid system.  I have figured out how to make a block 'swimmable' the only problem is that when swimming in said block it spawns water particles and if you are submerged under it it renders an underwater overlay this will not work if i want fluids besides water. is there a way to interface with EntityPlayer in a way i can manipulate the ability to swim and what particles spawn/ overlays rendered? 

 

Here is how i make a block 'swimmable'

@Override
	public Boolean isEntityInsideMaterial(IBlockAccess world, BlockPos pos, IBlockState state, Entity entity, double y, Material material, boolean testingHead){
		if(material.equals(Material.WATER)){
			return true;
		}
		return false;
	}

That's not a good solution. What if there's some block....say....molten iron that when entities are inside it it sets them on fire?

Your block would say "nope, not inside!"

 

And besides, all the swimming code is inside the Entity class (for players, EntityPlayer) and explicitly checks for Material.WATER so again, your code double-fails because if someone wants to have a material other than water this code doesn't make the block swimmable.

You would have to use the LivingUpdateEvent.  And you'd have to write the swimming mechanics yourself.
