[1.14.4] Getting an item from a tag


Recommended Posts

I am attempting to get an Item from a tag (like 'Ingots/copper') to have my mod offer support for mods, but I am having an issue with my method returning null, so I assume that I have something wrong, or I am going about it the wrong way.


	public static Item getOreDict(String oreDic) {
		ResourceLocation tag = new ResourceLocation("forge", oreDic);
		Tag<Item> t = ItemTags.getCollection().get(tag);
		if(t == null) {
			return null;
		Collection<Item> tagCollection = t.getAllElements();
		for(Item item : tagCollection) {
			return item;	
		return null;

Rather than getting items from a tag, query if a given item has a given tag.

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.

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

Well, I was already told to not do this, but what I was doing, was checking if there is any items registered to a certain tag, and if so try and get the first one so I can use it in my code to enable/disable item and recipe registration, but I am now just registering the item and I need to disable the recipes if the item doesnt exist, which is my next goal. I am not too sure how to use the conditions in the recipes to check for a mod or item
