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When searched for this, I found a few examples but they most likely outdated, as they are from 2013.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

    • hm... when I had a similar issue the discord pointed me towards using baked models. but multiparts does seem way simpler, and with datagen I could even do it proceduraly
    • You don't need a custom baked model for this. Look at the composter model for an example.
    • whenever you find a solution by yourself, you can leave the original question, but add a comment mentioning that you fixed it, and how. so that if anyone comes accross the same problem, they can find your solution and try it without needing to make a new topic. also, I don't see how intellij syncing with github has anything to do with forge
    • you need to create a new class which implements IBakedModel, overwrite getQuads (the one which takes an IModelData) an make it return the quads for your model, the IModelData shouls contain the info on the list and you set the info on the IModelData by overwriting getModelData in your tile entity. you need to sync the data from, the Server tile entity, to the client, which you can do by overwriting getUpdatePacket (Server sends updated data to the client), and onDataPacket  (Client handles an update packet received). then, whenever that data changes you can call World#notifyUpdate, and whenever the client receives an update (so in the end of onDataPacket) you call requestModelUpdate().   for the BakedModel, what I do is: I pass in an existing IBakedModel (that works as a base that I can add quads to) to the constructor, and store it in a field. then I can call IBakedModel#getQuads on the base model, which gives a list of BakedQuads, and add any new quads to it. and you can create your quads by using FaceBakey#bakeQuad, it takes the start and end positions of the quad (in block space, so 0 -> 16), an instance of a BlockPartFace, the sprite you want to use, which you can get from an AtlasTexture, the Direction of that quad, a transform (I just use SimpleModelTransform.IDENTITY), a rotation, which you can just pass null, a boolean that tells wether that face should be shaded or not, and then a throwaway ResourceLocation. and you can decide on all those properties, and on what faces to add, given the IModelData   EDIT: oh, and to register it you can do so through the modelRegistry in the ModelBakeEvent (this event is client-side only (I think)) if you need some examples, I used this repo to learn how to use BakedModels: https://github.com/TheGreyGhost/MinecraftByExample/tree/master/src/main/java/minecraftbyexample/mbe04_block_dynamic_block_models
    • Your code works well, I should have used the yaw player instead of taking yaw from my projectile. Thank you again
