[1.12.2] Custom Spawn Egg Creates Eggs for All Mobs


Recommended Posts

It was a bit hard to explain in the title but basically i wanted to add a recipe for a spawn egg for one of my mod's mobs, so i created a class that extended ItemMonsterPlacer. The custom spawn egg does appear in game and it does spawn my mob successfully, the issue im having is that it created a spawn egg with my texture and name added on to vanilla mobs. So under all the vanilla eggs would be a copy of all the vanilla eggs with the name "Fame Minion Blaze" for example, and those egg copies will spawn the mob that they are copied from, so the egg in the above mentioned example would spawn a blaze, its just that the name and texture of the egg are wrong. So my question is, is there something in ItemMonsterPlacer that i need to Override to get this to stop? Or am i possibly messing something else up. Now go easy on me, its been many years since ive tried to mod and ive never tried to do this in particular before, that being said, im also an idiot.


My custom spawn egg class: 


package com.varitekcibus.amazingfoodstuffs.objects.items;

import com.varitekcibus.amazingfoodstuffs.AmazingFoodStuffs;
import com.varitekcibus.amazingfoodstuffs.init.ItemInit;
import com.varitekcibus.amazingfoodstuffs.util.interfaces.IHasModel;

import net.minecraft.creativetab.CreativeTabs;
import net.minecraft.item.ItemMonsterPlacer;

public class ItemMobPlacers extends ItemMonsterPlacer implements IHasModel


    public ItemMobPlacers(String name, int id) 
    public void registerModels() 
        AmazingFoodStuffs.proxy.registerItemRenderer(this,  0,  "inventory");

Within my item initialization class, this is the entry for this item:


public static final Item FAME_MINION_EGG = new ItemMobPlacers("fame_minion_egg", Reference.ENTITY_FAME_MINION);

So if someone could tell me the stupid thing im doing, that would be great. Thanks.


P.S. Heres a pic of what it looks like in game for more reference.

could you post your itemInit class?


I believe that there is also a way to register your egg at the same time as registering your entity which could eliminate the problem

Why are you creating a custom spawn egg? Just use the one vanilla adds.

Well im trying to create a craftable egg, i figured i would need to create a new item that functioned as a "spawn egg" in order to give it a recipe. I might have been wrong in that assumption, vanilla doesnt have a precedent for creating craftable eggs so i wasnt sure exactly how that would be done.

The whole ItemInit class is like 300 lines due to the amount of items in my mod, so in the interest of space, this is the structure:


package com.varitekcibus.amazingfoodstuffs.init;

import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.List;

import com.varitekcibus.amazingfoodstuffs.Reference;
import com.varitekcibus.amazingfoodstuffs.objects.food.ItemFoodBase;
import com.varitekcibus.amazingfoodstuffs.objects.items.ItemBase;
import com.varitekcibus.amazingfoodstuffs.objects.items.ItemMobPlacers;
import com.varitekcibus.amazingfoodstuffs.objects.tools.ToolBase;

import net.minecraft.item.Item;
import net.minecraft.item.Item.ToolMaterial;
import net.minecraft.item.ItemFood;
import net.minecraftforge.common.util.EnumHelper;

public class ItemInit {
    public static final List<Item> ITEMS = new ArrayList<Item>();



Then within that i register all the items with the same format as the example i gave in the first post.

You can add a crafting recipe for a normal spawn egg just fine. You do not need to make your own item.

Hm, ok ignore my last reply, i guess i did assume incorrectly. Thank you.

Edit: it did indeed work, im mad at myself for not thinking of the nbt from the start. Thank you though diesieben.

    • I made a block entity in forge 1.20.1, I want to prevent hopper from taking input slot item, i tried to override the extractItem method, it prevented hopper from taking input slot item, but the player also unable to take/change the item in input slot unless the slot is empty. public class FluidSeparatorBlockEntity extends BlockEntity implements MenuProvider { private static final int INPUT_SLOT = 0;

    • No dice. Unfortunately this fix didn't work, thank you though.
    • Maybe you need a rayon mod. https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/rayon
    • Not sure what's going on the logs are making even less sense than usual to me. Any help would be much appreciated.   https://paste.ee/p/KBHyP#s=0
