EntityPlayer.getName() returning null [1.12.2]

Recommended Posts

I've got a block with a tile entity. The block takes the player that placed it and passes it to the tile entity, where the tile entity saves it to NBT. When it tries to do this, though, getName() for EntityPlayer is throwing a null pointer. I know that the EntityPlayer is not null, as the tile entity was functioning correctly before I added the nbt methods. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Problematic code #11

Also you shouldn't be calling writeToNBT in your update method.

Okay but is there an explanation for why I shouldn't have any arguments in my TE constructor? How would I get the player entity that placed the block into the tileentity otherwise?

You can keep the one with the EntityPlayer parameter, but there needs to be a constructor with no arguments. This is because when the world is loaded and the TE needs to be placed it doesn't have the EntityPlayer that placed it, or anything else.

Okay, that makes sense. Thank you

I have not dealt with tile entities in a long time, but iirc you can have a field for the EntityPlayer in your TileEntity class and set it to the player that placed the block by overriding

    public void onBlockPlacedBy(World worldIn, BlockPos pos, IBlockState state, EntityLivingBase placer, ItemStack stack)
    {
    }

in your block's class.

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.

 

Exception: If you do not understand Java, I WILL NOT HELP YOU and your thread will get locked.

 

DO NOT PM ME WITH PROBLEMS. No help will be given.
