1.12 How do I make the third person zoom farther when riding my custom entity, my dragon is kind of big.


Recommended Posts

My tameable dragon is kind of big, that's why when I watch it  via third person, its kinda "zoomed in" a bit closer, how do I make it zoom out? 

In older versions the EntityRenderer used a "double field" called EntityRenderer.thirdPersonDistance, since it was protected we used reflection helpers to access it and change it's values. since it was removed we cant access it so now I need alternate methods.


ReflectionClass: https://github.com/TheRPGAdventurer/dragonmounts2-1.12/blob/master/src/main/java/com/TheRPGAdventurer/ROTD/util/PrivateFields.java


EntityTameableDragon usage: https://github.com/TheRPGAdventurer/dragonmounts2-1.12/blame/master/src/main/java/com/TheRPGAdventurer/ROTD/server/entity/EntityTameableDragon.java

        try {
            ReflectionHelper.setPrivateValue(EntityLiving.class, this, new DragonLookHelper(this), PrivateFields.ENTITYLIVING_LOOKHELPER);
        } catch (Exception ex) {
            L.warn("Can't override EntityLookHelper", ex);


I onced issued it here:

I submitted a PR for this, you'll have to wait if/when it gets accepted and released.

1.7.10 and older versions of Minecraft are no longer supported due to it's age! Update to the latest version for support.
