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.

This shows me how to create the bare bones implementation, but there isn't anything pertaining to how to use it in the slightest, or if there is, it doesn't make any sense to me, at least to a tileEntity, because I can see how to send something to a server, but I can't tell how to read it or even receive it.

When the button is clicked -> send a packet to the server with the relevant information (TE's pos, what button was clicked).

Server gets the packet, reads the data, gets the TileEntity from the position encoded in the packet, and does things (if valid to perform).

You want to know what data the TE has?

Yes, you override those three methods. Yes there are three.

getDataPacket: sending

getUpdateTag: sending

onDataPacket: recieving

I'm actually trying to send a packet from the client that a button was clicked, and if so, start a process on the server, which would then set the variable on both ends back to false until the button is clicked again. But this is starting to make sense, and I think I might be able to figure it out. I'm thinking that I'd use pkt.readInt and then send one back setting the variable back to false.

I'm not sure if this is the best implementation, but I did it like so:

 

In the GUI class, when the button is pressed (checked with actionPerformed) you use your packet handler to send to server a custom message with the information you need. When the message is sent to the server, you can set the variable on the server side with a handler. Then inside the server handler you can send a packet to players.

    • I want to download Forge 1.20.6, but when I press download, it redirects me to Adfocus and does not provide any download. I have never encountered such a problem when I downloaded Forge 1.18.2 at least 12 months ago.
    • did you find any solutions? i have the same problem and also that mahito doesnt transform
    • Here's a simple example to solve this particular issue: public class ModArmorMaterials { public static final DeferredRegister<ArmorMaterial> ARMORS = DeferredRegister.create(Registries.ARMOR_MATERIAL, MyModName.MOD_ID); public static final RegistryObject<ArmorMaterial> COPPER = registerArmor("copper", Util.make(new EnumMap<>(ArmorItem.Type.class), enumMap -> { enumMap.put(ArmorItem.Type.BOOTS, 1); enumMap.put(ArmorItem.Type.LEGGINGS, 4); enumMap.put(ArmorItem.Type.CHESTPLATE, 5); enumMap.put(ArmorItem.Type.HELMET, 2); enumMap.put(ArmorItem.Type.BODY, 4); }), 12, SoundEvents.ARMOR_EQUIP_IRON, 0.0F, 0.0F, () -> Ingredient.of(Items.COPPER_INGOT)); private static RegistryObject<ArmorMaterial> registerArmor(String pGroup, EnumMap<ArmorItem.Type, Integer> pEnumMap, int pEnchantmentValue, Holder<SoundEvent> pEquipSound, float pToughness, float pKnockbackResistance, Supplier<Ingredient> pRepairIngredient) { List<ArmorMaterial.Layer> pLayerList = List.of(new ArmorMaterial.Layer(new ResourceLocation(pGroup))); return registerArmor(pGroup, pEnumMap, pEnchantmentValue, pEquipSound, pToughness, pKnockbackResistance, pRepairIngredient, pLayerList); } private static RegistryObject<ArmorMaterial> registerArmor( String pGroup, EnumMap<ArmorItem.Type, Integer> pEnumMap, int pEnchantmentValue, Holder<SoundEvent> pEquipSound, float pToughness, float pKnockbackResistance, Supplier<Ingredient> pRepairIngredient, List<ArmorMaterial.Layer> pLayerList) { return ARMORS.register(pGroup, () -> new ArmorMaterial(pEnumMap, pEnchantmentValue, pEquipSound, pRepairIngredient, pLayerList, pToughness, pKnockbackResistance)); } public static void register(IEventBus eventBus) { ARMORS.register(eventBus); } } Essentially, the TierSortingRegistry has been removed and so you now need to set up your own DeferredRegister. Please see the minecraftforge GitHub for more information; I found this solution through their issues (https://github.com/MinecraftForge/MinecraftForge/issues/9961)
    • How did I even leave that in there? I’ll try it in a bit, that very well could be it.
