How to make my mobs spawn with armor?


Recommended Posts

So I want my mobs to always spawn with armour using an event, so I used:

package com.example.examplemod.events;

import com.example.examplemod.DirtMod;
import com.example.examplemod.util.RegistryHandling;
import net.minecraft.inventory.EquipmentSlotType;
import net.minecraft.item.ItemStack;
import net.minecraftforge.api.distmarker.Dist;
import net.minecraftforge.eventbus.api.SubscribeEvent;
import net.minecraftforge.fml.common.Mod;
import net.minecraftforge.event.entity.*;

@Mod.EventBusSubscriber(modid = DirtMod.MOD_ID, bus = Mod.EventBusSubscriber.Bus.FORGE, value = Dist.CLIENT)
public class ModClientEvents {

    public static void onMobSpawn(EntityJoinWorldEvent event) {


        if (event.getEntity().getName().getString().toLowerCase() == "zombie") {

            DirtMod.LOGGER.info("Zombie equipped (almost)");

            event.getEntity().setItemStackToSlot(EquipmentSlotType.MAINHAND, new ItemStack(() -> RegistryHandling.CDIRT_AXE.get(), 1));

            event.getEntity().setItemStackToSlot(EquipmentSlotType.HEAD, new ItemStack(() -> RegistryHandling.CDIRT_HELMET.get(), 1));

            DirtMod.LOGGER.info("Zombie equipped!");





It isn't working, and the log doesn't show "Zombie Equipped (almost)". Please help


P.S. CDIRT_HELMET and CDIRT_AXE are both custom armour, one of an armour type and one of a axe type.

First of all, remove 

value = Dist.CLIENT

The client should not be the one giving items to mobs, that is the job of the server. You can get more details about that at the official forge documentation.


Second, you should not use reference equality (==) to check if two strings are equal. In this case, you should not compare strings at all, you probably want to use event.getEntity().getType() to compare entity types.

Is this the wrong topic? I'm new here sorry.

Yes, you should have posted this in the 'Modder Support' forum and not here, but don't worry about it, a moderator can always move it.
