[1.12] Mod drop loot, am I doing this right?


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to make wither bosses drop this item (ModItems.ELUCIDATOR) and its not working. What am I doing wrong?


public void loadLootTables(LootTableLoadEvent event) {
	if (event.getName().toString().equals("minecraft:entities/wither")) {
		LootFunction[] funcs = {};
		LootCondition[] conds = {};
		LootEntry[] loots = {
				new LootEntryItem(ModItems.ELUCIDATOR, 99999, 7, funcs, conds, "elucidator") //just using 99999 as a test weight to make sure its actually working and I'm not really unlucky
		LootPool pool = new LootPool(loots, conds, new RandomValueRange(1, 1), new RandomValueRange(0), "saomodpool");

If your entry is the only one then the weight does not matter.


If you want to add new drops to the pool use json, there is no need to do it from code. Read the official docs on the matter.

I have 0 understanding of json so I'm trying to avoid it as much as possible.

You need to rethink your approach. If you don't understand something you need to learn it, not avoid it like a plague. Minecraft is getting more and more data driven and utilizes json for more and more of it's things. If you wish to continue modding you need to learn to use json. It's not very difficult. You've learned to use java after all, that's way more difficult than some json.

JSON stands for JavaScript Object Notation, it’s just a serialised representation of an object. As voidwalker said, learnig java is a lot harder and you’ve already done it.

try this:

		public void mobDrop(LootTableLoadEvent event) {
	    if (event.getName().equals(LootTableList.ENTITIES_WITHER)) {
	        final LootPool main = event.getTable().getPool("main");
	        if (main != null) {
