Forge breaking scoreboard objective "used.chest" with NBT set


Recommended Posts

I'm the author of a datapack that uses vanilla scoreboard objectives to track the placement of chests and barrels, such as:

scoreboard objectives add placed_chest minecraft.used:minecraft.chest "Player placed chest"

This objective updates for default chests/barrels, but if the item has any NBT set the objective doesn't update.

This is different from vanilla and completely breaks my datapack when on Forge (tested in 1.14.3 and 1.14.4)


I so hope this is a bug that will be fixed and not an intentional patch!

provide your data pack or one that illustrates the issue and the steps to reproduce.

As it sits, pretty sure we don't mess with anything scoreboard related except to fire a few events around it.

I do Forge for free, however the servers to run it arn't free, so anything is appreciated.

I did some more testing and it's not NBT that's the issue, it's stack size!

The scoreboard objective is only incremented if the selected items stack size is greater than 1.


To reproduce run these commands:

/scoreboard objectives add used_chest minecraft.used:minecraft.chest
/scoreboard objectives setdisplay sidebar used_chest
Add a single chest to a hotbar slot and place it - the objective isn't incremented.
Add 2 or more chests to a hotbar slot and place them - all but the last item will increment the objective.
This is true even in creative where items aren't used.
It seems to happen for stackable items that can be placed.
From my testing it happens with:
chest, barrel, oak_planks, oak_sapling, sheep_spawn_egg (weird)
But not with:
acacia_boat, ender_pearl, flint_and_steel
