Detecting if looking at an living entity.


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to find 2 functions that I can call if a player is looking at a living entity (boolean) and that it returns the living entity the player is looking at.

Example (I know it's probably wrong but only a guess):

EntityLiving targetEntity = getLivingEntityLookingAt()

Any ideas?



Update: (27/6/13 GMT 00:18)

I haven't really given the scenario for help to actually be efficient.

So I'm gonig to give a basic overview:

I'm making a sword that when I'm facing a Living Entity, it will teleport the player to the entity when I right click. I've got the right click sorted, and the method of the teleportation sorted (moveEntity()) and I could probably get the calculate coordinates to teleport me. I just need a the living entity's position which I think I could get from a LivingEntity return from some function (which I didn't find) I could call. However, if there are other methods then that might be helpful.

Thanks, Melonize

Minecraft.getMinecraft().objectMouseOver.entityHit is the client side version of which entity the player is looking at

if(Minecraft.getMinecraft().objectMouseOver.entityHit != null){
    if(Minecraft.getMinecraft().objectMouseOver.entityHit instanceof EntityLiving){
        //here you know the player is looking at a entityliving



this is only for client side, if you want server side, send a packet
