1.16.5 Rotate text behind the player's camera.


Recommended Posts

Hello, I have been suffering for 6 hours and cannot find a good, working solution.

I need the text above the creature to always face the camera. I went through a lot of code examples and even tried to find the source code of the tag item in the game and render it. But I didn't find anything I needed.

As far as I understand, the new version does not have MatrixStack.rotate, I need it judging by the examples. I tried GlStateManager and don't know how to pass the required matrixStack to fontRenderer.draw (matrixStack, ...)

What should I do? Now I stopped at the option that is shown in the code below, but it does not do what I need.

@Mod.EventBusSubscriber(modid = XCraft.MODID, value = Dist.CLIENT)
public class ClientEventHandler {
    public static void potion(RenderLivingEvent.Post<? extends LivingEntity, ? extends EntityModel<?>> event) {
        HealthBar.renderInWorld(event.getMatrixStack(), event.getEntity());

public class HealthBar {
    public static void renderInWorld(MatrixStack matrixStack, LivingEntity entity) {
        ClientPlayerEntity playerEntity = Minecraft.getInstance().player;
        assert playerEntity != null;

        FontRenderer fontRenderer = Minecraft.getInstance().font;
        assert fontRenderer != null;

        ITextComponent name = entity.getName();
        fontRenderer.draw(matrixStack, name,  0, 0, 0xffffff);

I don't know how, but setting: mappings channel: 'snapshot', version: '20210309-1.16.5' build.gradlew helped me. In short, I deployed the project on a new one and it all worked. I thought it was a bug or a flaw, maybe it is
