Using X-Ray Vision For Debugging Purposes

Recommended Posts

Cheating in Minecraft multiplayer is deplorable. Giving yourself an unfair advantage ruins the fun for everyone, and I am not doing it nor do I intend to do it. That being said, it might be useful to use certain "cheats" to debug your mod. (I'm thinking X-ray to test ore generation – while you can go into spectator and use /fill to clear out large swaths of stone, /fill has a limit on the blocks that can be removed and getting the coordinates is tedious.) Does anyone know of anything that might allow me to do that on the Forge debug Minecraft launcher?

You would need to figure out a way to track all the blocks you want to find (i.e. record on generation, or iterate through the entire chunk when it is received by the client), and subscribe to RenderWorldLastEvent and draw wireframes around the blocks.

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TechnoVision (previously called Loremaster) and HarryTalks, due to their promotion of bad practice and usage of outdated code.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