Drawing an image above an entity


Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

I'm trying to render an image above my entity just as the label that displays the player's name. I've searched through the entity's render class, but I did not find anything related.

When searched for this, I found a few examples but they most likely outdated, as they are from 2013.

Can anyone help me out?

I think the closest thing to what you want to achieve is to search how particles are rendered, since they are just a textures that gets draw on the screen in a certain location in most cases. Or you can always create an entity that has the texture of your image and spawn that entity when you want to see the image, but I don't think this will be the optimal approach (but it will sure get the job done quickly)

Take a look at the  EntityRenderer#renderName method...to draw an image instead of text you could just use a textured quad

Thanks for the help!

However I still have problems with the image render part of the solution.

Anywhere to go?

I actually tried this. I don't think it's how it's should be done as the texture does not render.

What am I doing wrong?

bufferbuilder.begin(7, DefaultVertexFormats.POSITION_COLOR);
bufferbuilder.pos(-i - 1, -15 + verticalShift - 10, 0.0D).color(0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, f).endVertex();
bufferbuilder.pos(-i - 1, 8 + verticalShift - 10, 0.0D).color(0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, f).endVertex();
bufferbuilder.pos(i + 1, 8 + verticalShift - 10, 0.0D).color(0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, f).endVertex();
bufferbuilder.pos(i + 1, -15 + verticalShift - 10, 0.0D).color(0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, f).endVertex();

this.mc.getTextureManager().bindTexture(location);
tessellator.draw();

    • Experienced modders, I come to you with hat in hand and request if you could share with me your thoughts and suggestions for a direction I should take on implementing a feature in my mod. First, the concept. What I would like to achieve is to provide the end user a json config file in which they can place a list of biomes and provide some addition details/criteria to apply to the world generation about those biomes. The first I would like to achieve is applying a min and max distance that a biome can spawn at from the center of the world. For example, if they wanted to make sure that desert biome was never any closer to 0, 0 then say 200 blocks they could have that in the json and then the world would skip desert as an allowed biome whenever the player is generating terrain before 200 blocks out. So far I have been able to implement my own WorldType and BiomeProvider and strong arm the getBiomeNoise function to check the distance loaded in from center against the value loaded in from the config file and just wholesale swap it for a different hardcoded biome choice, but obvious that brute force attack is not ideal at all. So I have two questions maybe you can offer advise about: 1. I would actually like this feature to allow whatever the existing generation algorithm is to do its things and just make this one additional criteria check, but obviously this seems unlikely. I have been reading up on Mixins but I am not sure yet if this will let me achieve my goals or if I even SHOULD go that route. 2. What do you think is a better strategy for replacing the chosen biome with a new one? Look for the closest neighbor biome and go that route? Whats the best way to do that?   Thanks ahead of time for anyone who even bothered to read this lol.
    • Yeah, I changed the JAVA_HOME variable to the path of my JDK (C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_281) and it worked. Thanks.
    • use NetworkHooks#openGui look how minecraft create container, but basically you need the container and a screen tutorials are not the best solution to learn something, read the forge docs and look here in the forum, then try to create a container, if you have problems creating it you can still ask
