[closed] Player pickup item event on Client - forge: 2705


Recommended Posts

I'm writing a client side mod. I would like to run codes when a player pickup an item.

I have tested the following

  1. net.minecraftforge.event.entity.player.EntityItemPickupEvent
  2. net.minecraftforge.fml.common.gameevent.PlayerEvent.ItemPickupEvent

both not work when I connect to a server, but work on singleplayer.

I suppose these 2 functions are logical server stuff, how can I run codes when a player pickup an item?

Moreover, what is the difference between above 2 class?


Because I don't know how Minecraft internal works, I have 2 assumptions.

  1. I failed to find the correct event to handle the event in the library.
  2. Minecraft server doesn't have a mechanism to notice client when a player pickup an item. Instead the server sends packets to client: The EntityItem disappear, update player inventory (picked up an item).

Couldn’t you look at the animation on itemstacks? If I remember correctly the animation only gets shown if you pick up an item, and not if you click or shift click it from another inventory. It’s probably going to be pretty deep in vanilla code, but it seems more efficient than keeping a copy of the inventory
