Any way to detect when a specific entity dies?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

been trying for a while to look for a solution to this problem:

 

So i am looking for certain mobs to spawn with

entitySpawned(EntityJoinWorldEvent event)

Then when i find the mob i'm looking for i want to do something like this to it:

//Obviously just a dumbed down example
	public void entitySpawned(EntityJoinWorldEvent event) {
		Entity entity = event.getEntity();
		if (true)
		{
			entity.onDead(someFunction()); //Runs when the entity dies.
		}
	}

What would be a ideal solution to this?

Capabilities. You create one, apply it to the entity when it is spawned, then in the EntityDeathEvent you check to see if that capability is there, and if so, do something.

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.

The Capabilities systems are supplied by Forge. They're an advancement on IEntityExtendedStorage (among other things)

Capabilities are a concept from Object Oriented Programming (like Objects and Interfaces). They allow for programming in the style “composition over inheritance”. Sorry for the badly worded answer, these articles explain it well.
