[1.15.2] Get EntityItem true age


Recommended Posts

I am trying to make myself an overlay to show how much time I have to pick up items before they despawns.


I found I can get the max amount of time in

EntityItem item = myItem item.lifespan

And then assumed it would be easy to find my value :

time_left_for_pickup = String.format("%d", (item.lifespan - item.ticksExisted) / 20 /*ticks per second*/);

But this value starts at 0 every time the item enters my render distance. I also found


but even this starts at 0 every time the item gets loaded. So I always have a countdown from 5 minutes, but it isn't anyhow helpful because I can't know what the actual age of the item is, I can just show how long the item has been in render distance.


Can I even get this information clientside? Or the true age of an item is reserved for the server?


I'm now using Minecraft 1.15.2 and Forge 31.2.0


Edit: it's a duplicate but last thread got closed immediately with no chance to ask further info. My mod is tiny and version doesn't matter, so yeh I am loading it in 1.15.2 now

I don't think that information is sync'd from the server to the client.

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.
