Help with Making a Single-Use Item
Thu, 06/08/2017 - 01:07

Haldo! Just starting out making some test items with potion effects/sounds/achievements, simple stuff. Everything's been going great, until I tried making the items single-use. Then things got confusing.

I thought giving the item durability:1 and adding a Damage Item event of 1 to the right-click would do it, but every time I add the Damage Item event it just throws an exception.

So then I started looking into the difference between Max Item Usage Duration and Item Damage Count, and ... I honestly can't find any documentation that describes what that first one does. Seriously, the wiki has the same description word-for-word across those two entries. I tried giving the item 1 of either or both, but it always had infinite uses in-game. No other forum poster seems to have had this specific question/problem that I can find, hence this new topic.

TL;DR: How do I make a single-use item that gets destroyed when you right-click with it, and what does Max Item Usage Duration mean? And why does the Damage Item event break the mod? Thanks!

Also, the item is supposed to be stackable, which is probably what screws up the durability; now I feel dumb! But the question regarding "Max Item Usage Duration" remains, as does the overall point of making a single-use, stackable item, similar to how bone meal or eyes of ender get used up upon right-clicking

I would just do the affects and remove 1 of the times, so it can stay stackable you can remove its vai events :)

@#2 Nice, thanks for the suggestion! That kinda works, though it removes one of the item based on inventory position: so if I'm holding a stack of items in my hand, but there's also a stack in the inventory, it takes one from the inventory instead of my hand. But it's close enough, so again, thanks! :)
