[Solved] getNBTShareTag is not working


Recommended Posts


I have a custom Item which needs to be synced with the client. To do that I have looked up several threads and they suggested to override getNBTShareTag.

But when I try to use it in the addInformation method the stack never has the values which are in getNBTShareTag.

Item class:

public class BasicBow extends Item {

    public void addInformation(ItemStack stack, @Nullable World worldIn, List<String> tooltip, ITooltipFlag flagIn) {
		if(stack.hasTagCompound()) {


    public boolean getShareTag() {
        return true;

    public NBTTagCompound getNBTShareTag(ItemStack stack) {
        NBTTagCompound tag = super.getNBTShareTag(stack);

        if(tag == null) {
            tag = new NBTTagCompound();

        tag.setString("test","Hello world");
        return tag;

But the "test" key specified in getNBTShareTag is always empty in addInformation.

I hope you can help me.
