Simple "Respawn" Item - How would you do this?


Recommended Posts


I'm trying to make a simple item that, when you hold it in your main hand and right click on a living entity, will kill the entity and spawn an entity of the same type in your location.

So if you right click on a pig, the pig will die and a second, new pig will spawn on you.

It seems to me that making such a simple item would be incredibly complicated with forge. You'd need to raytrace on the client-side to find the mob, tell the server about the mob through networking, kill the mob, then spawn a new one.

Is there something I'm missing? Do you really need to set up networking for such a simple item?

How would you do this?

Thank you!
