Help with itemInteractionForEntity()


Recommended Posts

In am trying to calculate the difference between the player using an item and the entity the item is used on, however the itemInteractionForEntity method i tried using does not include a variable for EntityPlayer. How can i get a variable for the player that is using the item? Thank you!

maybe you can use onItemRightClick(itemStack, world, entityPlayer) instead.


And inside the method body, do like this:


float f = 1.0F;
        double d0 = par3EntityPlayer.prevPosX + (par3EntityPlayer.posX - par3EntityPlayer.prevPosX) * (double)f;
        double d1 = par3EntityPlayer.prevPosY + (par3EntityPlayer.posY - par3EntityPlayer.prevPosY) * (double)f + 1.62D - (double)par3EntityPlayer.yOffset;
        double d2 = par3EntityPlayer.prevPosZ + (par3EntityPlayer.posZ - par3EntityPlayer.prevPosZ) * (double)f;
        MovingObjectPosition movingobjectposition = this.getMovingObjectPositionFromPlayer(par2World, par3EntityPlayer, true);

        if (movingobjectposition == null)
            return par1ItemStack;
        else if (movingobjectposition.entityHit instanceof EntityLiving)
                // DO STUFF HERE, Entity hit



This is using the getMovingObjectPositionFromPlayer() method which all items inherit from the Item class.

I got this code by looking at how ItemBucket get's milk from EntityCow upon using the item :)

Hope it helps ^^

If you guys dont get it.. then well ya.. try harder...
