[SOLVED] Can't get LootTable loading event to fire.


Recommended Posts


I know this will probably seem like a dumb question.  I'm trying to modify the vanilla loot table to make bats drop a custom item.

I am following the tutorial at mcforge.readthedocs, and it says...

public void lootLoad(LootTableLoadEvent evt) {
    if (evt.getName().toString().equals("minecraft:chests/simple_dungeon")) {
        // do stuff with evt.getTable()

Well... that doesn't work.  I originally put it in its own class called LootTables, and tried adding `@Mod.EventBusSubscriber`, but then I moved it to the main class to better troubleshoot it, so I could be sure it wasn't because the class wasn't being grabbed.


I've looked at a lot of various tutorials and Q/A sites regarding this topic, and none of the layouts they have have worked for me.  I'm trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong.

I've attached (and put in the spoiler below) my main class file.  The one where the `@EventHandler` on the preInit and postInit and init functions definitely work.  None of the `@SubscribeEvent` things I try work.  The logger does not log anything from those SubscribeEvent pieces, so I assume that the methods have not fired.


package thornecraft.apothecary;

import net.minecraft.item.Item;
import net.minecraftforge.fml.common.registry.GameRegistry.ObjectHolder;
import net.minecraft.creativetab.CreativeTabs;
import net.minecraft.init.Blocks;

public class Apothecary
    public static final String MODID = "apothecary";
    public static final String NAME = "ThorneCraft Apothecary";
    public static final String VERSION = "1.12.2-";
    public static Logger logger;

    @SidedProxy(clientSide="thornecraft.apothecary.proxies.ClientOnlyProxy", serverSide="thornecraft.apothecary.proxies.DedicatedServerProxy")
    public static thornecraft.apothecary.proxies.CommonProxy proxy;

    public void lootLoad(LootTableLoadEvent event) {
    public void lootLoadEvent(LootTableLoadEvent event) {

    public void onLootTableLoaded(LootTableLoadEvent event) {
    public void onLootTableLoadedEvent (LootTableLoadEvent event) {

    public void lootTableLoad(LootTableLoadEvent event) {
    public void lootTableLoadEvent(LootTableLoadEvent event) {
    public void LootTableLoad(LootTableLoadEvent event) {
    public void LootTableLoadEvent(LootTableLoadEvent event) {

    public void loadLootTable(LootTableLoadEvent event) {
    public void loadLootTableEvent(LootTableLoadEvent event) {
    }    @SubscribeEvent
    public void LoadLootTable(LootTableLoadEvent event) {
    public void LoadLootTableEvent(LootTableLoadEvent event) {

    public void preInit(FMLPreInitializationEvent event)
        logger = event.getModLog();

    public void init(FMLInitializationEvent event)
        // some example code
        logger.info("DIRT BLOCK >> {}", Blocks.DIRT.getRegistryName());

    public void postInit(FMLPostInitializationEvent event) {


I'm using Minecraft/Forge version 1.12.2- and mappings version stable_39

Oh my gods!  Thank you!

None of my methods were static.  I went and updated them to be static.


All five of these event methods triggered (like a thousand times)

[20:26:46] [Server thread/WARN] [apothecary]: loadLootTable
[20:26:46] [Server thread/WARN] [apothecary]: lootLoad
[20:26:46] [Server thread/WARN] [apothecary]: lootLoadEvent
[20:26:46] [Server thread/WARN] [apothecary]: onLootTableLoaded
[20:26:46] [Server thread/WARN] [apothecary]: onLootTableLoadedEvent

I was using `@SubscribeEvent`, btw.

    • { "type": "magic_overhaul:rune_inscribing", "base": { "item": "//base item" }, "template": { "item": "//template item" }, "output": { "count": 1, "item": "//output item" } } ^ Ok, where is your recipe JSON placed in your file structure? What's it called? And paste the actual JSON you're testing with, because it needs to be valid.
    • I'm trying to run Forge 1.12.2 on Minecraft  so I can use certain mods, but this error popped up. I've seen multiple errors but I just can't figure this one out.
