why are you using 1.8? thats not supported anymore,

use 1.12.2

if you really want 1.8 use the newest 1.8.9

and look up

It looks like you want the shortest distance between the player, and this entity, yes?
Call Entity::getDistanceToEntity, to find the distance between two entities.

STATEMENTS                             |                                                                 REASONS

1. Distance from player to entity is diagonal           |  1. Diagonal is a line segment that extends from one angle of the                                                                                                          |  quadrilateral to its opposite angle

|

How do you want the distance demonstrated by diagonal? Are the entities on opposite angles of a quadrilateral?

And P.S. don't use 1.8, update to 1.10.2 + please, believe me, it's way more worth it.

It's literally taking the square root of two squares. It's a formula, you plug numbers in and get numbers out. There's nothing to manipulate.

Apparently I'm a complete and utter jerk and come to this forum just like to make fun of people, be confrontational, and make your personal life miserable.  If you think this is the case, JUST REPORT ME.  Otherwise you're just going to get reported when you reply to my posts and point it out, because odds are, I was trying to be nice.

DO NOT PM ME WITH PROBLEMS. No help will be given.
