Generating a structure

Recommended Posts

Go to youtube. Type in "theinstitutions" and go to his playlist for structure generation. I know they are for an older version of Minecraft, and they may be for ModLoader, but that doesn't matter. The WorldGen** file (** being the name you give it) is the same across the amount of time and API used. The only thing that changes is instead of world.setBlockWithNotify();, its world.setBlock(); Pretty easy really.

 

Another difference is the that instead of generating the structure in the world from your main mod file, you make it generate using the normal ore generation stuff.

 

 

As for the randomly shaped structures, I believe you would have to code a new structure for every "Random" structure you want, that uses a random.

 

something like this: (Note that this method will be explained in the afore mentioned tutorial)

public void generate(Random random) { // I have added the random for the 'random' structure check
    Random rand = random;
    int randomNumber = rand.nextInt(3); // this generates a random number between 0 and 3
    
    switch(randomNumber) {
    case 0:
        world.setBlock(x, y, z, Block.stone.blockID); // x, y, z variables being defined in the tutorial
        break;
    case 1:
        world.setBlock(x, y, z, Block.wood.blockID);
        break;
    case 2:
        world.setBlock(x, y, z, Block.blockDiamond.blockID);
        break;
    case 3:
        world.setBlock(x, y, z, Block.blockGold.blockID);
        break;
    }
}

 

That would be the sorta thing needed for making a "randomly shaped" generated structure. All you have to do is change the shape that the blocks that get spawned make the structure have the different shapes.

 

I hope that helps... If not I wasted 5 minutes of my life writing this xD

I have also found that I really love making extremely long and extremely but sometimes not so descriptive variables. Sort of like what I just did there xD

thanks, but i have already made the base structure. I just want it to generate like when using StructureStart. I know it would work extending it and generating it in a knew dimension but i don't know how to do it in already existing ones.

 

What do you mean, "I don't know how to do it in already existing ones."?

 

That doesn't quite make sense to me :/

Ahh. Do you know how to generate ores in the world? Overworld/Nether/End? If you do its EXACTLY the same concept, you just have to generate the structure instead. I'll explain a bit better later.

I have already made it generate, but i need to know were it is generated before it is, so that i can make a device, that points towards the closest structure.

Save a list of locations. I don't know much about this, but I think it involves either world.mapStorage or world.perWorldStorage.

    • There's a scheme I got into where they promised to trade Bitcoin for me and take a cut as a commission. Seemed like a good idea at the time. But then, things went south real fast. They ended up transferring   $190,000 worth of my Bitcoin. I was devastated and felt completely helpless. That's when I stumbled upon the Wizard Web Recovery Tool. It was like a beacon of hope amid chaos. With this tool, I could finally start digging into what went wrong and hopefully get my Bitcoin back. Using Wizard Web was surprisingly easy. I just had to plug in some details about my Bitcoin account and let it do its thing. It started scanning the internet, looking for any clues about what happened to my Bitcoin. It felt like having a detective on my side, searching for answers. And guess what? Wizard Web found some leads. It uncovered evidence of the scheme's shady dealings and helped me track down the people responsible for losing my Bitcoin. Armed with this information, I took the case to court. After a long and hard-fought legal battle, the court ruled in my favor. The perpetrators were held accountable for their actions and faced criminal charges for their involvement in the scheme. It was a victory not just for me, but for anyone who's been taken advantage of by these kinds of scams. Thanks to Wizard Web Recovery, I was able to get justice and reclaim what was rightfully mine. It showed me that even in the face of adversity, there's always a way to fight back. And with the right tools and determination, anything is possible.   The following is the contact information for Wizard Web Recovery.   Email: wizard web recovery((@))programmer . net
    • Hello, good morning. I know some programming and I'm interested in mod creation. That's why I've decided to follow a tutorial guide on YouTube by TurtyWurty. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DhoX9cmAZqA&t=160s&ab_channel=TurtyWurty I've followed the tutorial perfectly. The problem is that when checking the food, the texture doesn't load for me. However, everything seems fine no matter how much I check. I'm sure it's something trivial, the problem is that I can't find it. Could you help me solve it, please? I leave a zip of my file so you can edit it freely. forge-1.20-Civicraft.rar
    • If you have nvidia graphics, it's important that you make sure Minecraft (and anything Minecraft-related) is set to prefer high performance graphics first. If you only update your AMD drivers it might fix the issue but cause severe performance loss vs Vanilla as it'll be running on the integrated graphics instead of dedicated nvidia graphics
