[1.11.2] Crafting NBT


Recommended Posts

So I was bored and decided to make a mod that would allow me to craft spawn eggs. The only issue I have is that I have no clue how to edit the NBT of the output so it sets the egg to spawn a specified mob.


GameRegistry.addShapedRecipe(new ItemStack(Items.SPAWN_EGG, 1, 93), new Object[] { "FEF", "EIE", "FEF", 'E', Items.EGG, 'F', Items.EMERALD, 'I', Items.FEATHER });


The recipe is registered and works but I end up with a blank spawn egg. (The above is supposed to allow me to craft a chicken egg)

To apply the entity ID to the stack use ItemMonterPlacer::applyEntityIdToItemStack.


This method is marked as client-only in 1.11.2, so you can't call it directly. Instead, you need to create your own method that does the same thing.


It's no longer client-only in 1.12 (because Forge patches Item#getSubItems and the methods used by it to be available on both sides), so you can use it directly.

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.
