[1.16.3] Can't register Entity with Deferred Register


Recommended Posts

I'm quite new at modding so bear with me here,

I'm trying to register my Entity using the DeferredRegister but I keep getting the error

"The type DeerEntity does not define DeerEntity(EntityType<T>, World) that is applicable here"


// RegistryHandler.java

public static final DeferredRegister<EntityType<?>> ENTITY_TYPES = DeferredRegister.create(ForgeRegistries.ENTITIES,

public static final RegistryObject<EntityType<DeerEntity>> DEER = ENTITY_TYPES.register("deer",
            () -> EntityType.Builder.create(DeerEntity::new, EntityClassification.CREATURE)
                    .size(1.0f, 1.0f)
                    .build(new ResourceLocation(HuntingUpdate.MOD_ID, "deer").toString()));
// DeerEntity.java

public class DeerEntity extends AnimalEntity {

    public static final Ingredient TEMPTATION_ITEMS = Ingredient.fromItems(Items.APPLE, Items.CARROT,
            Items.CARROT_ON_A_STICK, Items.BEETROOT);

    private EatGrassGoal eatGrassGoal;
    private int deerTimer;

    protected DeerEntity(EntityType<? extends DeerEntity> type, World worldIn) {
        super(type, worldIn);
        // TODO Auto-generated constructor stub

    public static AttributeModifierMap.MutableAttribute setCustomAttributes() {
        return AnimalEntity.func_233666_p_().func_233815_a_(Attributes.field_233818_a_, 10.0D) // Max Health
                .func_233815_a_(Attributes.field_233821_d_, 0.3D); // Movement Speed

    protected void registerGoals() {

        this.goalSelector.addGoal(0, new SwimGoal(this));
        this.goalSelector.addGoal(1, new PanicGoal(this, 1.5D));
        this.goalSelector.addGoal(2, new BreedGoal(this, 1.0D));
        this.goalSelector.addGoal(3, new TemptGoal(this, 0.5D, TEMPTATION_ITEMS, true));
        this.goalSelector.addGoal(4, new FollowParentGoal(this, 1.1D));
        this.goalSelector.addGoal(5, eatGrassGoal);
        this.goalSelector.addGoal(6, new AvoidEntityGoal<>(this, PlayerEntity.class, 15.0F, 1.25D, 0.5D));
        this.goalSelector.addGoal(7, new WaterAvoidingRandomWalkingGoal(this, 0.7D));
        this.goalSelector.addGoal(8, new LookAtGoal(this, PlayerEntity.class, 10.0F));
        this.goalSelector.addGoal(9, new LookRandomlyGoal(this));

    public AgeableEntity func_241840_a(ServerWorld p_241840_1_, AgeableEntity p_241840_2_) {
        return RegistryHandler.DEER.get().create(this.world);

    protected int getExperiencePoints(PlayerEntity player) {
        return 1 + this.world.rand.nextInt(4);

    protected SoundEvent getAmbientSound() {
        return SoundEvents.ENTITY_SQUID_AMBIENT;

    protected SoundEvent getDeathSound() {
        return SoundEvents.ENTITY_SQUID_DEATH;

    protected SoundEvent getHurtSound(DamageSource damageSourceIn) {
        return SoundEvents.ENTITY_SQUID_HURT;

    protected void playStepSound(BlockPos pos, BlockState blockIn) {
        this.playSound(SoundEvents.ENTITY_SQUID_SQUIRT, 0.15F, 1.0F);

    protected void updateAITasks() {
        this.deerTimer = this.eatGrassGoal.getEatingGrassTimer();

    public void livingTick() {
        if (this.world.isRemote) {
            this.deerTimer = Math.max(0, this.deerTimer - 1);

    public void handleStatusUpdate(byte id) {
        if (id == 10) {
            this.deerTimer = 40;
        } else {


Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Your DeerEntity(EntityType<? extends DeerEntity> type, World worldIn) is protected, it should be public.

I'm also pretty sure it needs to be DeerEntity(EntityType<T> type, World worldIn) as indicated by the error.

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.
