[Solved] Rendering Projectiles


Recommended Posts

So I have created this class for rendering a projectile that extends SpriteRenderer, but when I try to override getEntityTexture I get this error:

'getEntityTexture(Entity)' in 'com.aylias.minecraft.mods.modbase.client.renders.CorruptPearlRenderer' clashes with 'getEntityTexture(T)' in 'net.minecraft.client.renderer.entity.EntityRenderer'; both methods have same erasure, yet neither overrides the other

How do I override it without getting this error? I have tried googling the error, even as just "both methods have same erasure, yet neither overrides the other" but found nothing that can help. Here is the class:

package com.aylias.minecraft.mods.modbase.client.renders;

import com.aylias.minecraft.mods.modbase.ModBase;
import com.aylias.minecraft.mods.modbase.entities.CorruptPearlEntity;
import net.minecraft.client.Minecraft;
import net.minecraft.client.renderer.ItemRenderer;
import net.minecraft.client.renderer.entity.EntityRenderer;
import net.minecraft.client.renderer.entity.EntityRendererManager;
import net.minecraft.client.renderer.entity.SpriteRenderer;
import net.minecraft.entity.Entity;
import net.minecraft.util.ResourceLocation;
import net.minecraftforge.api.distmarker.Dist;
import net.minecraftforge.api.distmarker.OnlyIn;
import net.minecraftforge.fml.client.registry.IRenderFactory;

public class CorruptPearlRenderer extends SpriteRenderer<CorruptPearlEntity> {
    public CorruptPearlRenderer(EntityRendererManager renderManagerIn, ItemRenderer itemRendererIn) {
        super(renderManagerIn, itemRendererIn);

    public ResourceLocation getEntityTexture(Entity entity) {
        return new ResourceLocation(ModBase.MODID, "textures/item/corrupt_pearl.png");

    public static class RenderFactory implements IRenderFactory<CorruptPearlEntity> {

        public EntityRenderer<? super CorruptPearlEntity> createRenderFor(EntityRendererManager manager) {
            return new CorruptPearlRenderer(manager, Minecraft.getInstance().getItemRenderer());

Just override getDefaultItem in your CorruptPearlEntity class and return the corresponding item

I have already done that, but it just assumes the texture of the normal ender pearl not the one attached to the corrupt pearl item, even if I don't register the CorruptPearlRenderer it still just looks like an ender pearl.

protected Item getDefaultItem() {
	return RegistryHandler.CORRUPT_PEARL.get();

Your entity is in fact bound to an EntityType<EnderPearlEntity>, instead of your custom pearl entity type, see that in your entity constructors your are not passing in any entity type because the super class(EnderPearlEntity) already provides its own, which is not what you want..i suggest you just extend the projectile item entity class and replicate the Ender pearl behavior where needed

I have done that, but now the entity is just invisible... I uploaded the new code to the repository.

You need to override createSpawnPacket in your entity, and return NetworkHooks.getEntitySpawningPacket

    public IPacket<?> createSpawnPacket() {
        return NetworkHooks.getEntitySpawningPacket(this);

That crashed the game when I threw it.

    • My friends and I are modding to survive But recently I want to use cmd to open the server instead of making the single player game public But when I used two methods to start the server, I encountered two problems first A I used forge to install the server files Created using the original server jar The server was installed successfully and the mod was also loaded successfully. But after I replaced the world file with my survival map, I found that the mod items inside disappeared but could be taken from creation again. So I tried to install the server using forge first B I have studied forge for a long time but successfully installed it. But when I put in mods it crashed But mods can be installed on the server   我和我的朋友們正在mod為了生存 但是最近我想用cmd打開伺服器而不是把單人遊戲公開 但是當我使用兩種方法啟動伺服器時,我遇到了兩個問題 首先AI使用forge安裝伺服器檔案使用原始伺服器jar 建立伺服器已成功安裝,mod 也已成功載入。但是當我用我的生存地圖替換世界文件後,我發現裡面的mod物品消失了,但可以再次從創建中取出。所以我嘗試先使用forge安裝伺服器,BI研究了forge很久但成功安裝了它。但是當我安裝 mods 時它崩潰了但是 mods 可以安裝在伺服器上 我和我的朋友正在mod生存 但最近我想使用cmd開啟伺服器而不是單人遊戲公開   但是當我使用了兩種方法開啟伺服器時遇到了兩種問題   第1個A 我使用了forge安裝伺服器文件 在使用原版伺服器jar建立    伺服器安裝成功 mod也順利加載  但是我將我的生存地圖替換世界文件後發現裡面的mod物品消失了但可以再次從創造拿取  所以我嘗試使用forge安裝伺服器   第2個B forge我研究了很久但也成功安裝了 但是當我放入 mods 之後發生了崩潰 但是mods在1A伺服器上是可以安裝的 Ps 我用谷歌翻譯 so    
    • That’s probably not it because as I stated I’ve done it before. I did it like deadass 10 - 20 times when trying to learn to make this mod pack because I kept wanting to reset my profiles and such. So it definitely works, it looks like maybe the creephosting files were the things that couldn’t be reached I tried reading the crash log
    • I don't know if this is the right place or not, but I have put together a custom modpack and I am in need of others to help me. It's a questing modpack with a lore book i'm currently writing out through Patchouli, and i am in need of somebody who will assist me in making the quests for the pack. It's a Zombie apocalypse modpack inspired by Deceasedcraft  with a tinge of magic and RPG mechanics via Mine and slash. Is there anybody willing to assist me as i'm one person building a modpack I could also use help with optimizations since that's not really my strong suite.

    • Hello, is it possible to upgrade from server 1.16.5 forge to 1.20.1 forge without losing a thing? and how do I do it? You need to change "forge-1.16.5-36.2.35.jar, minecraft_server.1.16.5.jar" and other modes.
