[1.15.2] How do I extend the attack reach of a player?

Recommended Posts

I've asked around a bunch on the discords and have gotten a lot of mixed answers. So, I'm wondering what would be the best way to extend the attack reach of a player? I've tried extending the reach attribute, but it seems to only affect blocks.

AFAIK there is no default way to increase the reach range for entity.

You will have to do your own recasting on the client side (basically simulate what vanilla Minecraft does).

Some tips:

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TechnoVision (previously called Loremaster) and HarryTalks, due to their promotion of bad practice and usage of outdated code.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

Spoiler

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.

Ah, that's unfortunate. How would I go about doing that (honestly, ray casting in general)? When I'm looking at the vanilla code, a method that I'm finding for that gets its information from the CUseEntityPacket parameter.

Can you give us some of the answers uve got from the discord servers, I'm still trying to do that but without success.

Why not use coremods?

Because it is not necessary in this case.

I think i have a better idea now: @Nozzomi, idk and not seed the vanilla method, but you can try to use a event (if the player for example use its hand) and if the RayTracing uses vectors, then add a scalar to this vector. If you dk what vectors are (and if the VanillaRaytracing uses and/or return a vector) then here is a page: https://www.mathsisfun.com/algebra/vectors-dot-product.html

New in Modding? == Still learning!
