[1.11.2] Trying to filter entity attack targets

Recommended Posts

What i'm trying to achieve is a filtering system where my loyal undeads will select its next target based on a list that will get updated in updateAITasks. I think i have almost got it, but i'm still running into a few problems, such as the entity selecting a few targets that is not supposed to be targeted. To make sure this does what it's supposed to, i made a targetList which creates an aabb around the entity and then checks if there are any allies in that aabb, if there are, it adds the allies in the aabb. Or atleast is supposed to, but my problem is that i don't know how to reference all the friendly ones and then add them all at the same time. 

 

My entity class = https://github.com/triphion/Ancient-Mod/blob/master/src/main/java/ancient/entity/EntityUndead

 

Worth noting is the way i'm adding and filtering. So first of i start with checking if the current target is null and if the targetList has any loyal undeads or players in it. If it has, then it's supposed to add them all. Then i remove them from the targetList and then add all of the remaining entities in the enemyList. Then every time this method gets called, so as to not overexert anything, i remove all the entities in the enemyList and then the process continue.

You could make a for loop and check for every entity in the targetList if it is an ally or a player and then add it to your friendlyList.

    	if (this.getAttackTarget() == null && this.isAlly()) 
    	{
        	for (Entity entity : this.targetList) 
        	{
        		if (entity instanceof EntityUndead && ((EntityUndead) entity).isAlly() && !friendlyList.contains(entity)) 
        		{
        			friendlyList.add(entity);
        		}
        		
        		if (entity instanceof EntityPlayerMP && !friendlyList.contains(entity)) 
        		{
        			friendlyList.add(entity);
        		}
        	}
    	}

Did it and it works, now however i need to check for all entities in the enemy list for the one that is closest to the entity. Any suggestions? 

 

Edit: I realized that the game crashes when there's too many loyal undeads. Not sure where in the code it gets overexerted.

Probably because you set the size of your friendlyList and enemyList to 32

Tried a much higher limit aswell as no limit. But it still crashes. Any other suggestion on why it crashes? It gets called too often in updateAITasks and i should use some other update method?

        	for (Entity entity : this.friendlyList) 	
        	{
        		if (entity.isDead) 
        		{
        			this.friendlyList.remove(entity);
        		}
        	}

Noticed aswell that if an undead dies, it crashes, i tried making this method to fix it, but to no avail. 

 

Edit: fixed it. Removed the method in its entirety and it somehow solved the problem ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

 

But i still need help regarding selecting target that is closest to the entity. 

    @Override
  public void setAttackTarget(EntityLivingBase entitylivingbaseIn) 
  {
  	if (this.canTarget) 
  	{
  		this.enemyList.removeAll(this.friendlyList);
  		Entity enemy = (Entity) this.enemyList.get(0);
  		double d0 = this.getDistanceSqToEntity((Entity) enemy);
  		EntityLivingBase entityToAttack = (EntityLivingBase) enemy;
  		
  		if (d0 < 30.0D && d0 > 0) 
  		{
  			entitylivingbaseIn = (EntityLivingBase) enemy;
      		super.setAttackTarget(entitylivingbaseIn);
  		}
  		
  		else
  		{
  			super.setAttackTarget(null);
  		}
  	 }
  }

I've started with this, but it's nowhere near done. So i need a few pointers to get the target i want. 

 

Edit: I fixed it! Thanks for all your help guys! ^^

    @Override
  public void setAttackTarget(EntityLivingBase entitylivingbaseIn) 
  {
  	if (this.canTarget) 
  	{
        for (Entity entity : this.enemyList)
        {
            double d0 = this.getDistanceSqToEntity(entity);

            if (d0 < 40.0D)
            {
            	super.setAttackTarget((EntityLivingBase) entity);
            }
        }
  	}
  	
  	else 
  	{
		super.setAttackTarget(null);
  	}
  }
@Override
	protected void updateAITasks() 
	{
		this.targetList = this.world.getEntitiesWithinAABBExcludingEntity(this, new AxisAlignedBB((double)this.posX - 17.5D, (double)this.posY - 17.5D, (double)this.posZ - 17.5D, (double)this.posX + 17.5D, (double)this.posY + 17.5D, (double)this.posZ + 17.5D));
		
    	if (this.getAttackTarget() == null && this.isAlly()) 
    	{
        	
    		for (Entity entity : this.targetList) 
        	{
        		if (entity instanceof EntityUndead && ((EntityUndead) entity).isAlly() && !this.friendlyList.contains(entity)) 
        		{
        			this.friendlyList.add(entity);
        		}
        		
        		if (entity instanceof EntityPlayerMP && !this.friendlyList.contains(entity)) 
        		{
        			this.friendlyList.add(entity);
        		}
        	}
    	}
    	
    	else if (!(this.getAttackTarget() == null)) 
    	{
    		this.canTarget = false;
    		
    		if (this.friendlyList.contains(this.getAttackTarget())) 
    		{
    			this.setAttackTarget(null);
    		}
    	}
    		
    	this.targetList.removeAll(this.friendlyList);
    	this.enemyList.clear();
    	this.enemyList.addAll(this.targetList);
    		
    	if (!this.enemyList.isEmpty()) 
    	{
    		this.canTarget = true;
    	}
    	else if (this.enemyList.isEmpty())
    	{
    		this.canTarget = false;
    	}
    }

Can you post your crash report?

You could compare the distance of the first entity in the list with all the other entities in the list. And when a distance is smaller you could go on with comparing that distance.

 

And if you just need the lists of entities for setting the attack target then you could also just search for the nearest netity that is not an ally.
