[1.15.2] Using DeferredRegistry for Tile Entities


Recommended Posts

Hello there!
So i am just starting to dabble my toes into Tile entities seeing as how I need to make some things for my mod.
I have been using Deferred Registry for my registering of items and blocks like so:
 

Spoiler

In the main items file:


public class ModItems {
    // Setup the Deferred Register.
    public static final DeferredRegister<Item> ITEMS = new DeferredRegister<>(ForgeRegistries.ITEMS, highgentech.MOD_ID);

    // Custom Item groups for creative tabs
    public static ItemGroup HGTmain = new ItemGroup("HGTmain") {
        @Override
        public ItemStack createIcon() {
            return new ItemStack(BRONZE_DUST.get());
        }
    };

    // Default item Properties
    public static Item.Properties Def = new Item.Properties().group(HGTmain);

    // Register new Items here!
    public static final RegistryObject<Item> BRONZE_DUST = ITEMS.register("bronze_dust",()->new Item(Def));
}

and in the main mod file:


@Mod(MOD_ID)
public class highgentech {
    // Set the MOD_ID here to use it in multiple places.
    public static final String MOD_ID = "highgentech";

    public static IEventBus EventBus;
    private static final Logger LOGGER = LogManager.getLogger();

    public highgentech(){
        // Get the FML EventBus the mod is on for easier use.
        EventBus = FMLJavaModLoadingContext.get().getModEventBus();
        // Setup a listener for the Setup event.
        EventBus.addListener(this::setup);
        // Register our self and all the stuff we are interested in.
        MinecraftForge.EVENT_BUS.register(this);
        ModBlocks.BLOCKS.register(EventBus);
        ModItems.ITEMS.register(EventBus);
    }

    private void setup(final FMLCommonSetupEvent event){
        // Pre-init code here
        LOGGER.info("Hello minecraft!");
    }
}

So i thought i could do something similar for Tile Entities. I made a new file, ModTileEntity, and before i could even finish typing the Deferred Registry line, i hit a snag.

Apparently it cannot be done like this:

public class ModTileEntity {
    public static final DeferredRegister<TileEntity> TILE_ENTITIES = new DeferredRegister<>(ForgeRegistries.TILE_ENTITIES, highgentech.MOD_ID);
}

and throws up a error about "Type not being within bounds", but doing it like this works fine:

public class ModTileEntity {
   public static final DeferredRegister<TileEntityType<?>> TILE_ENTITIES = new DeferredRegister<>(ForgeRegistries.TILE_ENTITIES, highgentech.MOD_ID);
}

So that is my first question. Do I use <TileEntity> and I was just using it wrong, or do I use <TileEntityType<?>>?

If it is TileEntityType, then here's my entire code so far:

package ahndreklicyri.highgentech.common.tileentities;

import ahndreklicyri.highgentech.highgentech;
import net.minecraft.tileentity.TileEntityType;
import net.minecraftforge.fml.RegistryObject;
import net.minecraftforge.registries.DeferredRegister;
import net.minecraftforge.registries.ForgeRegistries;

public class ModTileEntity {
    public static final DeferredRegister<TileEntityType<?>> TILE_ENTITIES = new DeferredRegister<>(ForgeRegistries.TILE_ENTITIES, highgentech.MOD_ID);

    //                                                                                                                                      v This is the issue
    public static final RegistryObject<TileEntityType<?>> EXAMPLE_ENTITY = TILE_ENTITIES.register("example_entity", ()->new TileEntityType<>());
}

It is asking for three arguments in the TileEntityType<>() function but i don't quite know what i am suppose to put there. It is asking for a Supplier, a Set<Block>, and a Type<?> but i am unsure as to what these are suppose to be.
Any help on this would be appreciated, thank you!

Use the TileEntityType.Builder.create method to create your TileEntityType and replace TileEntityType<?> with your TileEntityType. This should fix the issues :)

These should help :)

Correct!

 

And don't forget to register your DeferredRegister using: 

TILE_ENTITIES.register(FMLJavaModLoadingContext.get().getModEventBus());

Or something similar. I do this in the constructor of my EvileDeferredRegistry, which is called in the constructor of my main mod class.

No surprises here :) ... It isn't very intuitive (I think). Somewhere on this forum is me asking this exact question xD!

You have to use TileEntityBuilder.Builder#create:

public static final RegistryObject<TileEntityType<AmethystCrystalTileEntity>> TILE_ENTITY_AMETHYST_CRYSTAL = TILE_ENTITIES.register("tile_entity_amethyst_crystal", () -> TileEntityType.Builder.create(AmethystCrystalTileEntity::new, EvileDeferredRegistry.AMETHYST_CRYSTAL.get()).build(null));

You pass a new instance of your TileEntity (which must have a 0 argument constructor), and the Block you want to bind the TileEntity to. Then you have to call build(null) on the created Object.

How to ask a good coding question: https://stackoverflow.com/help/how-to-ask

Give any applicable of: logs, code, desired effects, and actual effects. Be thorough or we can't help you, and don't post code without putting it in a code block (the <> button on the post - select "C-type Language"): syntax highlighting makes everything easier, and it keeps the post tidy.

Thank you guys so much i very much appreciate it! I was able to get it working. :D

Okay so, it works, but it doesn't seem to actually apply the TileEntity to the block?
The tile Entity does exist, and I can see that in the logs, but for some reason, when I place the block, it doesn't seem to place as a tile entity.

TileEntity code:

package ahndreklicyri.highgentech.common.tileentities;

import ahndreklicyri.highgentech.highgentech;
import net.minecraft.tileentity.ITickableTileEntity;
import net.minecraft.tileentity.TileEntity;

public class FurnGenTin_TE extends TileEntity implements ITickableTileEntity {
    public int tickCount = 0;

    public FurnGenTin_TE() {
        super(ModTileEntity.FURN_GEN_TIN_TE.get());
    }

    // Required by ITickableTileEntity
    @Override
    public void tick() {
        tickCount++;
        if(tickCount == 60){
            highgentech.LOGGER.debug("Ticker working!");
            tickCount = 0;
        }
    }
}

DeferredRegistry file code:

package ahndreklicyri.highgentech.common.tileentities;

import ahndreklicyri.highgentech.common.blocks.ModBlocks;
import ahndreklicyri.highgentech.highgentech;
import net.minecraft.tileentity.TileEntityType;
import net.minecraftforge.fml.RegistryObject;
import net.minecraftforge.registries.DeferredRegister;
import net.minecraftforge.registries.ForgeRegistries;

public class ModTileEntity {
    public static final DeferredRegister<TileEntityType<?>> TILE_ENTITIES = new DeferredRegister<TileEntityType<?>>(ForgeRegistries.TILE_ENTITIES,highgentech.MOD_ID);

    public static final RegistryObject<TileEntityType<FurnGenTin_TE>> FURN_GEN_TIN_TE = TILE_ENTITIES.register("tile_entity_furnace_gen_tin",()->TileEntityType.Builder.create(FurnGenTin_TE::new, ModBlocks.TIN_FURN_GEN.get()).build(null));
}

Main file code:
 

@Mod(MOD_ID)
public class highgentech {
    // Set the MOD_ID here to use it in multiple places.
    public static final String MOD_ID = "highgentech";

    public static IEventBus EventBus;
    public static final Logger LOGGER = LogManager.getLogger();

    public highgentech(){
        // Get the FML EventBus the mod is on for easier use.
        EventBus = FMLJavaModLoadingContext.get().getModEventBus();
        // Setup a listener for the Setup event.
        EventBus.addListener(this::setup);
        // Register our self and all the stuff we are interested in.
        MinecraftForge.EVENT_BUS.register(this);
        ModBlocks.BLOCKS.register(EventBus);
        ModItems.ITEMS.register(EventBus);
        ModTileEntity.TILE_ENTITIES.register(EventBus);
    }

    private void setup(final FMLCommonSetupEvent event){
        // Pre-init code here
        LOGGER.info("Hello Minecraft!");
    }
}

Some help would be nice. I feel like it's something simple I'm just missing but i can't tell.
