[1.12.2] how to add lore to an item


Recommended Posts

1st of all, i dont know annything about java because i will only ever use it for this one mods that im making, i've just been following tutorials online, mainly loremasters tutorial.

so far all i have is 1 item called comrade , and the item has a class that extends the itembase:


this is what i got so far because of what tutorials told me to do, but now i want to add a lore to the item, i seached alot but i cant find anny tutorial that tells how to do so, some other forums here said to use:

public void addInformation(ItemStack par1ItemStack, EntityPlayer par2EntityPlayer, List par3List, boolean par4) {



but i get alot of errors:

Multiple markers at this line
	- EntityPlayer cannot be resolved to a type
	- Syntax error on token ",", ; expected
	- Syntax error on token "(", ; expected
	- void is an invalid type for the variable 
	- Syntax error on token ",", ; expected
	- Syntax error on token ")", ; expected
	- Syntax error on token ",", ; expected

i have no idea what they mean but i assume this is an outdated way because it was from a post in 2013. so if annyone can tell me how to do it, or provide me with a screenshot/tutorial.

Those errors are syntax errors, and are caused by not writing Java correctly.

They did not occur because the tutorial is outdated.


To fix such errors, please learn Java.

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TechnoVision (previously called Loremaster) and HarryTalks, due to their promotion of bad practice and usage of outdated code.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.



Programming via Eclipse's hotfixes will get you nowhere

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



The "picture that's worth 1000 words" only works if there's an obvious problem or a freehand red circle around it.

Support & Bug Reports:


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.

You haven't imported the class.

Fix this and the other errors will probably go away.

Apparently I'm a complete and utter jerk and come to this forum just like to make fun of people, be confrontational, and make your personal life miserable.  If you think this is the case, JUST REPORT ME.  Otherwise you're just going to get reported when you reply to my posts and point it out, because odds are, I was trying to be nice.


Exception: If you do not understand Java, I WILL NOT HELP YOU and your thread will get locked.


DO NOT PM ME WITH PROBLEMS. No help will be given.
