What does ActionResultType.CONSUME mean?


Recommended Posts

ActionResultType has four elements, please correct me if i'm wrong.


    All the things is valid, and this action actually modified something in someway.
  • FAIL
    Some thing is invalid, so this action failed.
  • PASS
    This action is not related to me, and I didn't do anything with it.

I can't understand what does consume mean.
I looked all the place that ActionResultType.CONSUME is used in vanilla Minecraft code, but I still can't sum up what this is.

The only things I found is that it used in logical client side mostly. (Ex. ArmorStand, Bed, Cake...etc)

And it seems doesn't change anything.

Is it mean to consume the item held by player? Or is it  consume the result itself?

Success and Consume are basically identical, the only thing that makes a distinction is whether or not the player's arm swings when the action is performed.

Apparently I'm a complete and utter jerk and come to this forum just like to make fun of people, be confrontational, and make your personal life miserable.  If you think this is the case, JUST REPORT ME.  Otherwise you're just going to get reported when you reply to my posts and point it out, because odds are, I was trying to be nice.


Exception: If you do not understand Java, I WILL NOT HELP YOU and your thread will get locked.


DO NOT PM ME WITH PROBLEMS. No help will be given.
