Help Creating a Custom Machine [1.12.2]


Distinct Soul
 Share

Recommended Posts

So as kinda given by the title, I'm trying to create a custom machine. To be more specific, a machine like a furnace but instead of cooking items, it combines 2 items into one - includes 2 of the same item (actually would like this to be more prioritised over 2 different items). It will also has 1 fuel slot where redstone dust/blocks are used to power it. I have looked up tutorials on custom machines; but they all pretty much involve smelting like a furnace, which I'm not trying to do. I feel like before I finish, I must mention that this is a custom block model machine and not one like a furnace where it just has different textures on the sides. I would also ideally like the fire cooking animation to be different. I believe I have most of the code done for the block itself; but I really need help on the actual functionality of this block. Detailed instructions on what each method would be highly appreciated, as I don't want just code that I don't understand and have no idea how to customise to make different machines.

Here's my code:

(Block Machine class)

package com.distinctsoul.soulforgery.blocks.machines;

import java.util.Random;

import com.distinctsoul.soulforgery.Main;
import com.distinctsoul.soulforgery.blocks.BlockBase;
import com.distinctsoul.soulforgery.init.ModBlocks;
import com.distinctsoul.soulforgery.util.Reference;

import net.minecraft.block.SoundType;
import net.minecraft.block.material.Material;
import net.minecraft.block.properties.IProperty;
import net.minecraft.block.properties.PropertyBool;
import net.minecraft.block.properties.PropertyDirection;
import net.minecraft.block.state.BlockStateContainer;
import net.minecraft.block.state.IBlockState;

import net.minecraft.entity.player.EntityPlayer;
import net.minecraft.inventory.InventoryHelper;
import net.minecraft.item.Item;
import net.minecraft.item.ItemStack;
import net.minecraft.tileentity.TileEntity;
import net.minecraft.util.EnumBlockRenderType;
import net.minecraft.util.EnumFacing;
import net.minecraft.util.EnumHand;
import net.minecraft.util.math.AxisAlignedBB;
import net.minecraft.util.math.BlockPos;
import net.minecraft.world.IBlockAccess;
import net.minecraft.world.World;
import net.minecraftforge.items.IItemHandler;

public class BlockShardFuser extends BlockBase implements ITileEntityProvider {
	
	public static final PropertyDirection FACING = BlockHorizontal.FACING;
	
	public BlockShardFuser(String name, Material material) {
		super(name, material);
		this.setDefaultState(this.blockState.getBaseState().withProperty(FACING, EnumFacing.NORTH));
		setSoundType(SoundType.STONE);
		setHardness(3.0F);
		setResistance(20.0F);
		setHarvestLevel("pickaxe", 2);
		// setLightLevel(0.1F);
		// setLightOpacity(1);
		// setBlockUnbreakable();
	}
	
	@Override
	public Item getItemDropped(IBlockState state, Random rand, int fortune) {
		return Item.getItemFromBlock(ModBlocks.SHARD_FUSER);
	}
	
	@Override
	public ItemStack getItem(World worldIn, BlockPos pos, IBlockState state) {
		return new ItemStack(ModBlocks.SHARD_FUSER);
	}
	
	public void onBlockPlacedBy(World worldIn, BlockPos pos, IBlockState state, EntityLivingBase placer, ItemStack stack) {
		worldIn.setBlockState(pos, this.getDefaultState().withProperty(FACING, placer.getHorizontalFacing()), 2);
	}
	
	public IBlockState getStateForPlacement(World worldIn, BlockPos pos, EnumFacing facing, float hitX, float hitY,
			float hitZ, int meta, EntityLivingBase placer) {
		return this.getDefaultState().withProperty(FACING, placer.getHorizontalFacing().getOpposite());
	}
	
	public static final AxisAlignedBB SHARD_FUSER_AABB = new AxisAlignedBB(0, 0, 0, 1, 1, 1);
	
	@Override
	public boolean isOpaqueCube(IBlockState state) {
		return false;
	}
	
	@Override
	public boolean isFullCube(IBlockState state) {
		return true;
	}
	
	@Override
	public EnumBlockRenderType getRenderType(IBlockState iBlockState) {
		return EnumBlockRenderType.MODEL;
	}
	
	@Override
	public AxisAlignedBB getBoundingBox(IBlockState state, IBlockAccess source, BlockPos pos) {
		return SHARD_FUSER_AABB;
	}
	
	public IBlockState getStateFromMeta(int meta) {
		EnumFacing facing = EnumFacing.getHorizontal(meta);
		return this.getDefaultState().withProperty(FACING, facing);
	}
	
	public int getMetaFromState(IBlockState state) {
		EnumFacing facing = (EnumFacing)state.getValue(FACING);
		
		int facingbits = facing.getHorizontalIndex();
		return facingbits;
	}
	
	@Override
	protected BlockStateContainer createBlockState() {
		return new BlockStateContainer(this, new IProperty[] { FACING });
	}

	@Override
	public TileEntity createNewTileEntity(World worldIn, int meta) {
		return null;
	}
	
}

 

(BlockState json)

{
    "variants": {
        "facing=north": { "model": "soulforgery:shard_fuser" },
        "facing=south": { "model": "soulforgery:shard_fuser", "y": 180 },
        "facing=east": { "model": "soulforgery:shard_fuser", "y": 90 },
        "facing=west": { "model": "soulforgery:shard_fuser", "y": 270 }
    }
}

 

Any help would be very appreciated.

Instead of quoting everything that’s wrong, I’m just going to link https://gist.github.com/Cadiboo/fbea89dc95ebbdc58d118f5350b7ba93. Please read it. Descriptions of most of the methods can be found in their javadocs. If those are lacking, you can find out what the method does by finding the usages of it.

 

Im not sure if it’s mentioned in the file I linked, but don’t use ITileEntityProvider, it’s legacy vanilla code and Forge has a better replacement. Simply override hasTileEntity(IBlockState) and createTileEntity(IBlockState) in your block class. To answer your question, all functionality outside of your block just sitting there is implemented through a TileEntity (usually a Tickable one)

So I looked at your conventions; but I still don't understand what I'm supposed to do for registering models and not using an object base class. Like where do I put this registry event and what exactly do I put for it? Also, what do you mean by 'extract it to a helper method'?

Loop over all your items and call the same code you would have in IHasModel. You subscribe to the registry event in the relevant EventSubscriber. Models should go in the client-only event subscriber, Object registration should go in the common/normal event subscriber.

Extract to a helper method means moving the same code that you call a lot into 1 helper method

Short version:

@SubscribeEvent
public void registerModelsWithoutIHasModelLikeAGoodBoi(ModelRegistryEvent event) {
	modItems.forEach(item -> {
		ModelLoader.setCustomModelResourceLocation(item, 0, new ModelResourceLocation(item.getRegistryName(), "inventory"));
	});
}

Something like that.

Basically loop through all your items and do what you normally do with IHasModel.

 

Cadiboo's example mod shows how to register stuff with good practices (the complete version); you might want to check that out.

The link is probably somewhere in his signature.

Some tips:

Modder Support:

1. Do not follow tutorials on YouTube, especially TechnoVision (previously called Loremaster) and HarryTalks, due to their promotion of bad practice and usage of outdated code.

2. Always post your code.

3. Never copy and paste code. You won't learn anything from doing that.

4. 

Quote

Programming via Eclipse's hotfixes will get you nowhere

5. Learn to use your IDE, especially the debugger.

1. Read the EAQ before asking for help. Remember to provide the appropriate log(s).

2. Versions below 1.11 are no longer supported due to their age. Update to a modern version of Minecraft to receive support.

I now get an error for 'ForgeRegistries', an error for the 'getNameSpace' on the 'onTextureStitchEvent' constructor, and an error for 'getPath' right after that.

What are the errors exactly? You are probably using outdated mappings as my mod was built for the latest mappings.

getResourceDomain -> getNameSpace

getResourcePath -> getPath

onTextureStitchEvent isn’t a class, it’s a method so it can’t have a constructor.

Ah. I should probably update the forge that I'm using thinking about it. But also, are these new mappings still found on the most recommended release for Forge on 1.12? Or only later versions?

Not to mention, 'ForgeDirectories' comes up with an error stating to import it. But when I do, I then get an error for MOD_ID.

Mappings are separate from Forge

 

MCP (Mod Coder Pack) Mappings are what Forge uses to deobfuscate minecraft’s code and turn it into something human-readable.

These mapping names are provided by the community and can change, so it’s relatively important to keep them up to date. You can find a list of mappings here. Simply copy the name/date of the release and put it into your build.gradle file in the minecraftblock.

You’ll need to run setupDecompWorkspace again (only on 1.12.2 & below) and then refresh the Gradle Project

What IDE do you use? In IntelliJ the gradle tasks and the refresh Gradle Project button are in the gradle pane in the right sidebar. In eclipse I have no idea where it is, but you can use the command line to run gradlew setupDecompWorkspace

Well I now got that working; but now almost all my classes have errors. Probably because of the outdated things I'm using. For example: CreativeTabs has an error.

I was assuming that you had updated to 1.13. CreativeTabs were renamed to ItemGroups in 1.13.

I also now have an error for setUnlocalizedName after the mappings update.

 MOD_ID also still has an error.

Saying “an error” doesn’t really give us any information that we can use to help you.

*UnlocalisedName -> *TranslationKey

MOD_ID should be replaced by an import of your modid from your main class or constants class.

I think that I use static imports in my 1.12.2 example mod which is apparently hard for many people so I’ve stopped using them on the 1.13 branch
