Spear is a white box? Help!


Recommended Posts

I'm making a mod with spears in it and when I try to render the spear as just an arrow it decides it wants to be a white box (kinda fun for pixel-arting villager houses though). How would I get it to render even just as a normal arrow.


My main mod file

public class mainMod_XXX {


static EnumToolMaterial toolIRON = EnumHelper.addToolMaterial("IRON", 2, 250, 6.0F, 2, 14);

static EnumToolMaterial toolGOLD = EnumHelper.addToolMaterial("GOLD", 0, 32, 12.0F, 0, 22);

static EnumToolMaterial toolDIAMOND = EnumHelper.addToolMaterial("DIAMOND", 3, 1561, 8.0F, 3, 10);

static EnumToolMaterial toolSTONE = EnumHelper.addToolMaterial("STONE", 1, 131, 4.0F, 1, 5);

static EnumToolMaterial toolWOOD = EnumHelper.addToolMaterial("WOOD", 0, 59, 2.0F, 0, 15);



public static final Item ironSpear = new ItemSpear(9104, toolIRON, 1).setIconCoord(2, 0).setItemName("ironSpear");

public static final Item goldSpear = new ItemSpear(9106, toolGOLD, 2).setIconCoord(4, 0).setItemName("goldSpear");

public static final Item diamondSpear = new ItemSpear(9105, toolDIAMOND, 3).setIconCoord(3, 0).setItemName("diamondSpear");

public static final Item stoneSpear = new ItemSpear(9103, toolSTONE, 4).setIconCoord(1, 0).setItemName("stoneSpear");

public static final Item woodSpear = new ItemSpear(9102, toolWOOD, 5).setIconCoord(0, 0).setItemName("woodSpear");


// The instance of your mod that Forge uses.


        public static mainMod_XXX instance;



        public void preInit(FMLPreInitializationEvent event) {

                // Stub Method



        public void init(FMLInitializationEvent preEvent) {





        public void load(FMLInitializationEvent event)


        LanguageRegistry.addName(ironSpear, "Iron Spear");

        LanguageRegistry.addName(diamondSpear, "Diamond Spear");

        LanguageRegistry.addName(goldSpear, "Gold Spear");

        LanguageRegistry.addName(woodSpear, "Wood Spear");

        LanguageRegistry.addName(stoneSpear, "Stone Spear");




        public void postInit(FMLPostInitializationEvent event) {

                // Stub Method



        public void load()





        public void AddRenderer(Map map)


                map.put(EntitySpear.class, new RenderArrow());




Item Spear is pretty much sword code mixed with bow code.


EntitySpear is an exact duplicate of EntityArrow except with a bunch of renames to make it work.





public class RenderSpear extends Render


    public void renderSpear(EntitySpear par1EntitySpear, double par2, double par4, double par6, float par8, float par9)




        GL11.glTranslatef((float)par2, (float)par4, (float)par6);

        GL11.glRotatef(par1EntitySpear.prevRotationYaw + (par1EntitySpear.rotationYaw - par1EntitySpear.prevRotationYaw) * par9 - 90.0F, 0.0F, 1.0F, 0.0F);

        GL11.glRotatef(par1EntitySpear.prevRotationPitch + (par1EntitySpear.rotationPitch - par1EntitySpear.prevRotationPitch) * par9, 0.0F, 0.0F, 1.0F);

        Tessellator var10 = Tessellator.instance;

        byte var11 = 0;

        float var12 = 0.0F;

        float var13 = 0.5F;

        float var14 = (float)(0 + var11 * 10) / 32.0F;

        float var15 = (float)(5 + var11 * 10) / 32.0F;

        float var16 = 0.0F;

        float var17 = 0.15625F;

        float var18 = (float)(5 + var11 * 10) / 32.0F;

        float var19 = (float)(10 + var11 * 10) / 32.0F;

        float var20 = 0.05625F;


        float var21 = (float)par1EntitySpear.spearShake - par9;


        if (var21 > 0.0F)


            float var22 = -MathHelper.sin(var21 * 3.0F) * var21;

            GL11.glRotatef(var22, 0.0F, 0.0F, 1.0F);



        GL11.glRotatef(45.0F, 1.0F, 0.0F, 0.0F);

        GL11.glScalef(var20, var20, var20);

        GL11.glTranslatef(-4.0F, 0.0F, 0.0F);

        GL11.glNormal3f(var20, 0.0F, 0.0F);


        var10.addVertexWithUV(-7.0D, -2.0D, -2.0D, (double)var16, (double)var18);

        var10.addVertexWithUV(-7.0D, -2.0D, 2.0D, (double)var17, (double)var18);

        var10.addVertexWithUV(-7.0D, 2.0D, 2.0D, (double)var17, (double)var19);

        var10.addVertexWithUV(-7.0D, 2.0D, -2.0D, (double)var16, (double)var19);


        GL11.glNormal3f(-var20, 0.0F, 0.0F);


        var10.addVertexWithUV(-7.0D, 2.0D, -2.0D, (double)var16, (double)var18);

        var10.addVertexWithUV(-7.0D, 2.0D, 2.0D, (double)var17, (double)var18);

        var10.addVertexWithUV(-7.0D, -2.0D, 2.0D, (double)var17, (double)var19);

        var10.addVertexWithUV(-7.0D, -2.0D, -2.0D, (double)var16, (double)var19);



        for (int var23 = 0; var23 < 4; ++var23)


            GL11.glRotatef(90.0F, 1.0F, 0.0F, 0.0F);

            GL11.glNormal3f(0.0F, 0.0F, var20);


            var10.addVertexWithUV(-8.0D, -2.0D, 0.0D, (double)var12, (double)var14);

            var10.addVertexWithUV(8.0D, -2.0D, 0.0D, (double)var13, (double)var14);

            var10.addVertexWithUV(8.0D, 2.0D, 0.0D, (double)var13, (double)var15);

            var10.addVertexWithUV(-8.0D, 2.0D, 0.0D, (double)var12, (double)var15);








    public void doRender(Entity par1Entity, double par2, double par4, double par6, float par8, float par9)


        this.renderSpear((EntitySpear)par1Entity, par2, par4, par6, par8, par9);




Also if you could point me towards the bit in the render spear code where I could elongate the arrow/spear that would be great  ;D

Where's your proxy? Also AddRenderer doesn't get called. You have to register your stuff through RenderingRegistry. And for that you'll need to use a proxy, since you cannot use the RenderingRegistry on a server.

Look here on how to use the Proxy system: http://www.minecraftforge.net/wiki/Basic_Modding

Then look at the RenderingRegistry class or look in the wiki on how to register your renderer.

This thread makes me sad because people just post copy-paste-ready code when it's obvious that the OP has little to no programming experience. This is not how learning works.

Ok, I created a common and client proxy and put this in the client proxy


    public void load()


        RenderingRegistry.registerEntityRenderingHandler(EntityFireB.class, new RenderFireball(0.5F));


But it doesn't work, it doesn't give me any errors but my throwable item is still a white cube (I'll be using my Fireball as an example for now because the code is much skinnier)

In my mod I do the following



void registerRenders()
                EntityRegistry.registerGlobalEntityID(EntityLaserBolt.class, "LaserBolt", ModLoader.getUniqueEntityId());
                RenderingRegistry.registerEntityRenderingHandler(EntityLaserBolt.class, new RenderLaserBolt());


In my mod class

public void load(FMLInitializationEvent event) throws Exception {
EntityRegistry.registerModEntity(EntityLaserBolt.class, "LaserBolt", 2, instance, 160, 1, false);
//2 is an index - get unique for every other entity
//160 I cant really rembember what it does
//1 is refresh rate - for some other entities You may give bigger values, if you want them to render every x ticks


Also note That in Your Spear entity you will need a constructor, which takes only World as parameter (even if You don't use it in Your code) - otherwise entity will be invisible.
