Blaster Delay Between Firing

Recommended Posts

I followed this tutorial: http://www.minecraftforge.net/wiki/Tutorials/Basic_Shooter_Item_-_Blaster_Rifle

and it works great, but the rifle that it produces is fully automatic, you only have to hold down the mouse button and it fires every tick. I would like a gun that is semi-auto(it fires once every press of the mouse and you have to press it again to fire again) with a delay/recharge time(say 1 second) between each shot. Does anyone know how to do this? (BTW, looking at the bow class does not really help me, because it is a totally different premise. Here is my gun class:

package mods.mcenrichment.common;

import net.minecraft.entity.player.EntityPlayer;
import net.minecraft.entity.projectile.EntitySnowball;
import net.minecraft.item.Item;
import net.minecraft.item.ItemStack;
import net.minecraft.world.World;

public class ItemGun extends Item {


	public ItemGun(int id) {
                // Constructor Configuration
                maxStackSize = 1;


public ItemStack onItemRightClick(ItemStack par1ItemStack, World par2World,EntityPlayer par3EntityPlayer) {
     par2World.playSoundAtEntity(par3EntityPlayer, "blastershot", 1.0F, 0.4F / (itemRand.nextFloat() * 0.4F + 0.8F));
     if (!par2World.isRemote)
       par2World.spawnEntityInWorld(new EntityGunBolt(par2World, par3EntityPlayer));
   return par1ItemStack;

and my bullet entity class:

package mods.mcenrichment.common;

import net.minecraft.entity.EntityLiving;
import net.minecraft.entity.projectile.EntityThrowable;
import net.minecraft.util.DamageSource;
import net.minecraft.util.MovingObjectPosition;
import net.minecraft.world.World;

public class EntityGunBolt extends EntityThrowable{

private static final double speed = 5;
boolean flag = this.worldObj.getGameRules().getGameRuleBooleanValue("mobGriefing");
private float explosionRadius = 1.0F;

public EntityGunBolt(World par1World)
   public EntityGunBolt(World par1World, EntityLiving par2EntityLiving)
       super(par1World, par2EntityLiving);
   public EntityGunBolt(World par1World, double par2, double par4, double par6)
       super(par1World, par2, par4, par6);
   protected void onImpact(MovingObjectPosition par1MovingObjectPosition){
   if (par1MovingObjectPosition.entityHit != null)
           par1MovingObjectPosition.entityHit.attackEntityFrom(DamageSource.causeThrownDamage(this, this.getThrower()), 14);
   //this.worldObj.createExplosion(this, this.posX, this.posY, this.posZ, (float)this.explosionRadius, true);
   protected float getGravityVelocity(){ 
   return 0;

Thanks for the help!

make a global integer.


private int counter =20;


in your 'onItemRightClick method'



if(counter == 0){






this makes the gun fire every second at least once. (second = 20 ticks)

make it more or less as you like.

should work.

Find me on the minecraftforums : senpaisubaraki if it doesn't work. i'm a rare forge site visitor.

    • So, lately my modloader (curseforge) has been loading 162 mods instead of the 97 that my modpack only has, appart of that, when I try to join onto my public server the curseforge logs just starts spamming "OpenGL debug message: id=1280, source=API, type=ERROR, severity=HIGH, message='GL error GL_INVALID_ENUM'" and just freezes, my drivers are up to date, I've reinstalled curseforge, same with minecraft launcher, the java is updated, I've got enough ram and I got no viruses, Long after all this happened, my game could enter my online server and it didn't register as many mods, even my game was running at 40 fps, now I can't even play multiplayer, and when I try singleplayer, it goes about 20 fps to 10
    • It does but I'm struggling to see how to make it work in my recipe? (Its structure is the same as OP's, with a serializer subclass)
    • That looks pretty cool, nice!   Sure, so looking at that JSON file I posted, I pretty much made a record class for each "custom" data type in that JSON. The Input is a good example of why ``` "inputs": [ { "ingredient": { "item": "relativedimensions:aberrant_shard" }, "count": 8 } ], ``` So here's the inputs, it's an array, which we can use the Codec builder's builder.listOf to define an array. Each Item is of some arbitrary object with keys "ingredient" (which we know is an Ingredient) and a "count" which is an int. You don't have to have an intermediate class to map this to necessarily but I found that it's just easier to see the data that way, hence the 'ParticleReboundIngredient' represents one of these inputs.   Let me know if that makes sense or not. 
    • Pretty much, although all the recipes im planning to make on it are shapeless. The idea is that the chamber uses energy to "fuse" the items in each of the center slots together, in this case an ingot. The two slots at the sides are fuel. (A special kind of wood in this case). Here is an image of the interface just for reference (The center slot is the output)   As for the code- Can you elaborate a little bit on it? Seeing three different record classes has confused me a lot. (Elaborate as in why make them in three different records. I understand the code itself more or less)
    • Hello im trying to make a mod and the past few days GSON has almost killed me, when i export the mod and then launch it through minecraft launcher i get java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: com.google.gson.JsonParser.parseString(Ljava/lang/String;)Lcom/google/gson/JsonElement; i have literally tried everything here is my build config   dependencies { minecraft("com.mojang:minecraft:1.8.9") mappings("de.oceanlabs.mcp:mcp_stable:22-1.8.9") forge("net.minecraftforge:forge:1.8.9-") compileOnly("cc.polyfrost:oneconfig-1.8.9-forge:0.2.2-alpha+") shadowImpl("cc.polyfrost:oneconfig-wrapper-launchwrapper:1.0.0-beta+") { isTransitive = false exclude(module = "gson") } shadowImpl("org.spongepowered:mixin:0.7.11-SNAPSHOT") { isTransitive = false exclude(module = "gson") } annotationProcessor("org.spongepowered:mixin:0.8.5-SNAPSHOT") shadowImpl("org.javassist:javassist:3.15.0-GA") { isTransitive = false exclude(module = "gson") } shadowImpl("com.neovisionaries:nv-i18n:1.28") { isTransitive = false exclude(module = "gson") } shadowImpl("org.apache.commons:commons-lang3:3.4") { isTransitive = false exclude(module = "gson") } shadowImpl("org.apache.httpcomponents:httpcore:4.4.5") { isTransitive = false exclude(module = "gson") } compileOnly("com.google.code.gson:gson:2.8.6") { isTransitive = false } configurations.all { resolutionStrategy { force("com.google.code.gson:gson:2.8.6") } } shadowImpl(fileTree( mapOf( "dir" to "libs", "include" to listOf("*.jar"), "exclude" to listOf( "asm", "asm-commons", "asm-tree", "gson", "unspecified", "nv-i18n" ) ) )) }
