[1.15.2] Tracking when the player last put items in a tag in their inventory


Recommended Posts

For reference, here's a link to my repo.


I am adding "mercury poisoning" to the game. Starting from when the player grabs an item under the tag "vanauto:contains_mercury", every 20 seconds, they have a chance of receiving the poison effect for 10 seconds. I plan on doing this by storing an NBT tag on the player: "LastHgAcquisition", which is then used to calculated whether to tick the player or not.


The problem is, I'm not sure if this is good practice, since NBT is usually managed by capabilities, and adding an entire capability like "CanHgPoisonCapability" seems kinda clunky. Is there a simpler way to track these sorts of things?


Note: stackable items need to stay stackable.
