(SOLVED) [1.16.5] Item addInformatiom - Override not regonized


Recommended Posts

Hello ladies and gentlemen !

I've recently started with Minecraft Modding - Moved from C#.
And ran into several issues. One of them is what I stated in the title.

About my setup
MDK: forge-1.16.5-36.1.0-mdk
IDE: IntelliJ IDEA 2020
Minecraft: obviously 1.16.5

package com.example.examplemod.common.items;

import ...;

public class ItemTest extends Item {

    public ItemTest(Properties properties) {

  	// ERROR Method does not override method from its superclass
    public void addInformation(ItemStack stack, World worldIn, List<ITextComponent> tooltip, ITooltipFlag flagIn) {
      	// ERROR Cannot resolve method 'addInformation' in 'Item'
        super.addInformation(stack, worldIn, tooltip, flagIn);

        tooltip.add(new StringTextComponent("Example tooltip"));



I checked the Source Code, surprisingly addInformation doesn't exist?
What is the alternative for that?
I've only found a getter for Tooltip


Best regards, Carbon.

Do not override manually, use your IDE to do that for you.

I'm aware of that - Thank you. 

But is hard to understand the procedure with wrong function naming

addInformation is now called appendHoverText

Is there a list of changed things? 

I'm working by a really recent tutorial. 


Instead of removing the old function right away, maybe keep it and mark it as depreciation. 


Best wishes 😷
