Placing spawn egg in creative tab


Recommended Posts

Hey all,


I'm trying to put all my spawn eggs in my mod's creative tab. Here's the code.


    public static final CreativeTabs creativeTab = new CreativeTabs(CreativeTabs.getNextID(), "modid") {
        public ItemStack getTabIconItem() {
            return new ItemStack(ModBlocks.block);

        public void displayAllRelevantItems(NonNullList<ItemStack> itemList)
            itemList.add(new ItemStack(Items.SPAWN_EGG, 1, 0, getSpawnEggNBT("mod_entity")));
    private static NBTTagCompound getSpawnEggNBT(String name)
        NBTTagCompound base = new NBTTagCompound();
        base.setString("id", "modid:" + name);

        NBTTagCompound nbt = new NBTTagCompound();
        nbt.setTag("EntityTag", base);

        return nbt;


The spawn egg is displayed in my creative tab, however, there is no NBT on the item. Pretty sure I'm screwing up the getSpawnEggNBT() method. Thanks.

I need my NBT to look like this {EntityTag:{id:"modid:mod_entity"}}
