[1.12.2] Is there a tile entity equivelent for items?


Recommended Posts

Ok, so my problem is that My item that stores items needs to be fairly complex. It has to be able to access 3 different inventories, Its own inventory, the player's inventory, and the inventory of an item in a specified slot (this item is a specific type). The size of these inventories are larger than the guis can fit, (i was planning to use a scroll bar kinda like the creative menus) and one set of inventory slots need to be "disabled" if there isn't an item in a specific slot. this will require some form of communication between the container and the gui and I'm really not sure how to go about this with an item. If it were a block, then you could use a tile entity to handle the communication. I know this sounds kinda vague but I'm just trying to figure out the best way to accomplish what I'm going for.

@loordgek I'm aware of the forge page, that doesn't answer my question of how they work.  Like its some kind of a d v a n c e d interface, but how its actually used I've no idea from the documentation. My problem is that I don't know how to use capabilities so I don't know what I need to do in my own capability to do what it is I want. Does anyone have a more beginner friendly explanation of what capabilities are and how they're used?  Like forge provides a default item handling capability that can be used for storage, in theory, that should be all I need since I'm basically just trying to access three inventories at once. How can I get my gui and my container to talk to each other? one is server side and one is client side, but I need to update the server based on what the client does, right? If the player scrolls down in the inventory menu the container has to be updated to display the items accordingly. Can a capability extend another capability? can you implement more than one capability in an item? How does that work with attaching more than one capability to an item, block, or player? The documentation doesn't get me very far because I'm an idiot whose total modding experience can be summed up as about 5 minutes through a youtube tutorial (that's hyperbole, the point is I don't know what I'm doing nor what I'm looking for.)

A capability is pretty much the same as an interface.

Instead of

if (object instanceof Interface)

you use


and instead of


you use

    • There's a scheme I got into where they promised to trade Bitcoin for me and take a cut as a commission. Seemed like a good idea at the time. But then, things went south real fast. They ended up transferring   $190,000 worth of my Bitcoin. I was devastated and felt completely helpless. That's when I stumbled upon the Wizard Web Recovery Tool. It was like a beacon of hope amid chaos. With this tool, I could finally start digging into what went wrong and hopefully get my Bitcoin back. Using Wizard Web was surprisingly easy. I just had to plug in some details about my Bitcoin account and let it do its thing. It started scanning the internet, looking for any clues about what happened to my Bitcoin. It felt like having a detective on my side, searching for answers. And guess what? Wizard Web found some leads. It uncovered evidence of the scheme's shady dealings and helped me track down the people responsible for losing my Bitcoin. Armed with this information, I took the case to court. After a long and hard-fought legal battle, the court ruled in my favor. The perpetrators were held accountable for their actions and faced criminal charges for their involvement in the scheme. It was a victory not just for me, but for anyone who's been taken advantage of by these kinds of scams. Thanks to Wizard Web Recovery, I was able to get justice and reclaim what was rightfully mine. It showed me that even in the face of adversity, there's always a way to fight back. And with the right tools and determination, anything is possible.   The following is the contact information for Wizard Web Recovery.   Email: wizard web recovery((@))programmer . net
    • Hello, good morning. I know some programming and I'm interested in mod creation. That's why I've decided to follow a tutorial guide on YouTube by TurtyWurty. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DhoX9cmAZqA&t=160s&ab_channel=TurtyWurty I've followed the tutorial perfectly. The problem is that when checking the food, the texture doesn't load for me. However, everything seems fine no matter how much I check. I'm sure it's something trivial, the problem is that I can't find it. Could you help me solve it, please? I leave a zip of my file so you can edit it freely. forge-1.20-Civicraft.rar
    • If you have nvidia graphics, it's important that you make sure Minecraft (and anything Minecraft-related) is set to prefer high performance graphics first. If you only update your AMD drivers it might fix the issue but cause severe performance loss vs Vanilla as it'll be running on the integrated graphics instead of dedicated nvidia graphics
