# get player facing direction

## Recommended Posts

I found the following in GuiRender

int var24 = MathHelper.floor_double((double)(p.rotationYaw * 4.0F / 360.0F) + 0.5D) & 3;

and this gives an direction of 0/1/2/3

I was wondering how I could make this give me diagonal facing directions as well 0/1/2/3/4/5/6/7

All I know from this is that p.rotationYaw can be bigger than one rotation of a circle (more than 360) so we get it down to between 0 and 360

but after this function completes it only gives 4 possible values

0/1/2/3

note: I am not good when it comes to floating point math

Isn't the 4.0F what is giving you 4 output numbers..  So in theory if you changed it to 36.0F it would give you 36 possible outputs, each one representing a 10 degree facing..

Therefore 8.0F would give you your diagonals I think..

0 = North

1 = North East

2 = East

3 = South East

4 = South

5 = South West

6 = West

7 = North West

(Or whatever direction starts at 0 )

I tried changing it to 8.0F but it still returned 0/1/2/3 but they were not the right directions

Hmmm

If you change the &3 to &7 what happens ?

Minecraft Gui / var24 with the &7

SOUTH/NORTH

inbetween south and west/NORTHWEST

WEST/NORTHEAST

inbetween north  and west/EAST

you get the idea

Or you can use the built in feature "look"

do you a) mean the F3 information showing the F: variable if so

this only shows SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST and does not show diagonal directions

or do you mean get player.getLook(int par1) which returns float x,y,z which in no way at all helps me.

no use Vec3 look = player.getLookVec() then call look.xCoord and look.yCoord and look.zCoord and then combine those together for whatever you are doing and you have the exact pixel that the player is looking at

So basically you want something like?

int yaw = (int)ePlayer.rotationYaw;

if (yaw<0)              //due to the yaw running a -360 to positive 360

yaw+=360;    //not sure why it's that way

yaw+=22;    //centers coordinates you may want to drop this line

yaw%=360;  //and this one if you want a strict interpretation of the zones

int facing = yaw/45;  //  360degrees divided by 45 == 8 zones

System.out.println("Yaw is " + yaw + "facing is " + facing);

*note this was validated with 1.45 code base your mileage may vary

Thanks this worked absolutely perfectly.

• Provide the models and folder locations corresponding to the door in addition to its registry name.
• Either create a layer that goes above the player skin or cancel RenderPlayerEvent\$Pre and render the model yourself, though the latter is more incompatible. If this is your introduction into modding however, I would go for something simpler.
• A number of things could make your mod incompatible, but at that point it's just paranoia. Events are used to mitigate incompatibilities, but you usually don't have to use them unless you're doing something complex or are modifying vanilla in some fashion for a use case in your mod. As for chance, who knows? It's not a quantifiable thing if we have no idea what you're doing.
• Hmm, it may be better to add in the mods then one by one from the base Forge state (dependencies can be bundled). You should save performance enhancing mods for last as they tend to be incompatible with a number of mods.
