Modifying Forge/determining when an Enderman picks up a block


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to determine when an enderman picks up a block.

I've looked into subscribing to the EntityEvent, LivingEvent, LivingUpdateEvent, BlockEvent, EntityMobGriefingEvent, and some others. I looked a little bit into the mapped source for the EndermanEntity, and I actually found what appear to be oversights that make this task that much harder if not impossible. First, the EntityMobGriefingEvent isn't fired at the right time, and instead it's fired much earlier than when a block is actually trying to be broken/placed. Even if it were fired at the right time, then it still wouldn't be able to distinguish between and enderman picking up or placing down a block. It seems like either a new event is needed or the TakeBlockGoal should post a LivingDestroyBlockEvent.


If anyone has any ideas on how to determine if the enderman picks up a block or not, please feel free to chime in.


Otherwise, I would like to modify the Minecraft Forge EndermanEntity file myself and would appreciate any direction on this topic.

Yeah, there's no good way to detect this right now.

Its based on several random variables and the EntityMobGriefingEvent simply determines whether or not the endermen are allowed to make that random check (which can still fail).

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.
