Interfacing mod power systems


Reika

Recommended Posts

I want to make an interface between my mod's power system and BuildCraft's MJ system. However, I have no idea how to do this.

I have dug into other mods' code, but they all seem to hardcode everything, using reflection to fetch classes, then variables, then values. To me, this seems like a stupid idea, as as soon as anything in the target mod changes, I need to rewrite my system.

 

Is there a better way? Note: I need full control over things like conversion ratio and behavior of converting machine. Ideally with my own TileEntity that takes in my power (already done) and produces MJ.

Maybe you should start by taking a look at the BuildCraft API. Hint: implement IPowerProvider

 

How can I use any of its classes directly without making them required for my mod to compile (and therefore making RotaryCraft dependent on BuildCraft)?

Import the API into your environment, then configure ant builds to exclude BuildCraft API packages and files.

 

For a peek at ant build configuration, look at pretty much any popular mod. A good mod to look at is EE-3, Pahimar has quite wonderfully documented how to use Ant. Start here, and follow the instructions.

You misunderstood. If I make a direct reference to a BuildCraft class, my mod becomes dependent on the existence of that class (users without will with crash with NoClassDefFound).

In fact, it won't. As long as you check to confirm that BuildCraft exists before calling any of their methods, you'll have absolutely no problems.

 

Proof:

Check out my mod's (TukMC) source. I have references to classes in the ThirstMod and IC2, and not once have I ever experienced any issues.

I cannot make an implements conditional. And that class needs to exist in "vanilla RotaryCraft" as well.

    • file:///C:/Users/Danie/Downloads/Capture.JPG I keep experiencing this error, does anyone know how to fix it here is the report: file:///C:/Users/Danie/AppData/Roaming/.minecraft/crash-reports/Bug_report1.txt
    • Hi, i am unable to join a multiplayer server my friend and i created. We started it with some mods then decided to add some others and this is when the error appeared. We are using Curseforge, the server is in 1.20.1 . The full error message is "Internal Exception: io.netty.handler.codec.DecoderException: java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException: Index 17196645 out of bounds for length 13" I am the only one with that issue, my friends can log in and out no problem. I have tried switching minecraft account but that doesn't help so i guess the bug is on my side. We use the same mod profile so i know the error doesn't come from there. Here is the latest.log file https://pastebin.com/X6J9Fnnf. If you need more informations to try and investigate, please let me know. Big thanks to anyone that will try to help
