[1.16] Need help with ProjectileItemEntity Physics


Recommended Posts

I'm making an projectile item, that when thrown, should bounce around a bit before stopping on the ground. however I'm having a really hard time with the physics of it, I've tried a few things but none of them quite worked.

I tried looking at the code for some other entities, such as the ArrowEntity, but it didn't help either. For making the item bounce, I'd probably need the normal at the hit point to be able to "reflect" it's velocity

How could I make it so the entity would behave more like a physics object?

here's the code for the entity: DSixEntity.java

For the simplest implementation, whenever the projectile interacts with the surface, you'll get the associated face that the surface interacted with. Then, invert the associated component and multiply it with some number between 0-1 to represent to loss of energy. For example, if the associated motion velocity is <3,-1,2> and the ball hits a face on the Y-axis (either UP or DOWN), it will invert the component to <3,1,2>. Let's say we want to have 80% of the energy conserved, then it would be <3,0.8,2>. Of course, you'll need probably a deadzone for the total motion to deal with ridiculously small numbers. If you want to introduce other factors, then I would suggest looking over some bouncing ball physics.

how do I get the associated face? it doesn't seem that RayTraceResult can tell me that.

note: I was/am about to implement the jBullet engine (I might as well since my projectiles have shapes more complex than a cube)

thanks for the example! but as I've said, since my entities use some more complicated shapes, I think I'm better off using a third-party physics library

    • I have created a mod which applies x shader to the player after consuming x item for a certain time, but if the player presses f5 to change the camera the shader stops working. The only way I have found to prevent the shader from being deactivated is to load it on all ticks until it is disabled but this greatly reduces the performance of the game. I have also tried to cancel the event of changing the camera but this is not cancelable. Any advice, I've been trying to solve this for several days 😵‍💫

    • EDIT: NVM, the enchantment ID was wrong and that was causing the issue. Not sure why it doesn't let me delete this post Hi, I'm trying to make a "smelting" enchantment Global Loot Modifier, but for some reason the game could not decode its related JSON file, altough is applying the Loot Modifier to every single loot When I join a world I get this error in the console   [01:08:01] [Render thread/WARN] [ne.mi.co.lo.LootModifierManager/]: Could not decode GlobalLootModifier with json id mineworld:enchantments/fiery_touch - error: Not a json array: {"condition":"minecraft:match_tool","predicate":{"enchantments":[{"enchantment":"mineworld:smelting","levels":{"min":1}}]}} The GLM Json file is the following { "type": "mineworld:fiery_touch", "conditions": [ { "condition": "minecraft:match_tool", "predicate": { "enchantments": [ { "enchantment": "mineworld:smelting", "levels": { "min": 1 } } ] } } ] } And this is the LootModifier class   package org.mineworld.loot; import com.google.common.base.Suppliers; import com.mojang.serialization.Codec; import com.mojang.serialization.codecs.RecordCodecBuilder; import it.unimi.dsi.fastutil.objects.ObjectArrayList; import net.minecraft.core.RegistryAccess; import net.minecraft.world.Container; import net.minecraft.world.SimpleContainer; import net.minecraft.world.item.ItemStack; import net.minecraft.world.item.crafting.Recipe; import net.minecraft.world.item.crafting.RecipeManager; import net.minecraft.world.item.crafting.RecipeType; import net.minecraft.world.level.Level; import net.minecraft.world.level.storage.loot.LootContext; import net.minecraft.world.level.storage.loot.parameters.LootContextParams; import net.minecraft.world.level.storage.loot.predicates.LootItemCondition; import net.minecraftforge.common.loot.IGlobalLootModifier; import net.minecraftforge.common.loot.LootModifier; import net.minecraftforge.items.ItemHandlerHelper; import org.jetbrains.annotations.NotNull; import org.mineworld.MineWorld; import java.util.List; import java.util.Optional; import java.util.function.Supplier; import java.util.stream.IntStream; /** * {@link MineWorld MineWorld} loot modifier for smelting a drop from a block */ public final class FieryTouchModifier extends LootModifier { /** * {@link Supplier<Codec> The loot codec supplier} */ public static final Supplier<Codec<FieryTouchModifier>> CODEC = Suppliers.memoize(() -> RecordCodecBuilder.create(inst -> codecStart(inst).apply(inst, FieryTouchModifier::new))); /** * Constructor.
