How to save capability data?

Recommended Posts

I want my capability data to persist between deaths, dimensions, and when the player exits the game and returns but I'm confused as to how it works. I already have everything set up and my Mana capability works so that if the player falls, it will absorb damage. Then it regenerates after some time. However, while it's doing so, if I exit the game and return, the mana is automatically filled up because every variable is reset when the player rejoins the world. I do this in the player joining world event.

 

But where should I be retreiving this data when the player rejoins? If I set all my capability's mana variables when the object is created, how is it supposed to remember them if the player exits the world?

 

I can confirm that indeed my write and read nbt methods are called, and the data I print in writenbt are correct. It's just that when I reload the game, the value printed in readnbt is the default value 0, that's set in the constructor.

For death persisting and changing between dimensions, you should probably read over the forge documentation and look at some implementations (credits to Choonster). As for the data when the player joins, if the data is being reset to zero (assuming your write method is correct), then your error probably comes from incorrectly reading the values back. Another error I can think of has to do with logical sides, but this would have to deal with synchronization issues depending on how you call and read the information given.

I modified my mana class a bit, and now it correctly reads the saved value when the player rejoins the game (checked by printing inside readnbt), so it's being saved/read correctly now. I.e. if it's 124/256 when exiting, it's 124/256 when rejoining. But when I then fall, absorb damage, etc, the server's counter reads back to the maximum. This is definitely a server/client issue right? It's uninitialized on the client so it still prints 0 there, while it's 256 on the server.

 

So correct me if I'm wrong: I handle the mana counter on the server, and when the player falls, the event fires and if on the logical server, I decrement the mana counter. Then when I exit the game, the game writes nbt data to the client, which I must then write back to server upon rejoining the game. Is that about right?

    • I have a structure, and sometimes several mobs spawn there. This is a boss and must spawn alone. Here is the code for spawning entities in the structure { "type": "minecraft:jigsaw", "start_pool": "egyptcraft:boss_pyramid/start_pool", "size": 5, "max_distance_from_center": 80, "biomes": "#egyptcraft:has_structure/boss_pyramid", "step": "surface_structures", "start_height": { "absolute": 0 }, "project_start_to_heightmap": "WORLD_SURFACE_WG", "use_expansion_hack": false, "spawn_overrides": { "monster": { "bounding_box": "full", "spawns": [ { "type": "egyptcraft:anubis", "maxCount": 1, "minCount": 1, "weight": 100 } ] } } } Maybe it's something else?
    • I have OreGenEvent.GenerateMinable event, I need to get a chance to spawn (generate) every ore that is processed in this event. Also e.getType().name().toString() is name this is the same block name by which it can be entered in the Block.getByID?  forge 1.12.2 59(recommended)

    • Hello, my world is crashing at 0% loaded and I don't know why. (Forge 43.2.14, 1.19.2) I have two worlds that I play on, and one works and the other doesn't, even with the same mod list. Here's the crash report: https://pastebin.com/AUbRwkGj
    • Minecraft 1.12.2 Very frustrating error. only ever occurs on one device. Started yesterday without prompting (maybe java updated or something?) Says things that have been imported actually arent when running client Reinstalled Intellij, cleared cache, cleaned and rebuilt gradle, redownloaded the entire file from git. Nothing works. (I believe I have the right plugins installed, dependencies OK, and am using corretto 1.8).   One thing I did for more of the below errors was just to explicitly import them, which was working up until this little guy who literally does not exist in forge to import. the class inhereting something inhereting it refers to import net.minecraftforge.registries.IForgeRegistryEntry.Impl, not net.minecraftforge.registries.IForgeRegistryEntry$Impl as the output implies. also I didn't even have to manually import these things for it to work on my other device. (which is just importing the minecraft package that contains them), but here I did have to just to get rid of a few errors--not even make anything work?? I dont know. (edited) here's the aforementioned "below error" (one of many like it): error: cannot access net.minecraftforge.registries.IForgeRegistryEntry.Impl public class BlockBase extends Block {        ^   class file for net.minecraftforge.registries.IForgeRegistryEntry$Impl not found Here's the class BlockBase:   package com.quantum.exodus.common.blocks; import com.quantum.exodus.ExodusMod; import net.minecraft.block.Block; import net.minecraft.block.material.Material; import net.minecraft.creativetab.CreativeTabs; import net.minecraft.item.Item; import net.minecraft.item.ItemBlock; import net.minecraftforge.registries.IForgeRegistryEntry.Impl; public class BlockBase extends Block { protected String name; public BlockBase(Material material, String name) { super(material); this.name = name; setTranslationKey(name); setRegistryName(name); } public void registerItemModel(Item itemBlock) { ExodusMod.proxy.registerItemRenderer(itemBlock, 0, name); } public Item createItemBlock() { return new ItemBlock(this).setRegistryName(getRegistryName()); } @Override public BlockBase setCreativeTab(CreativeTabs tab) { super.setCreativeTab(tab); return this; } }
