Help with making a weapon tool
Mon, 10/02/2017 - 02:49

So, I made an Item a weapon. I made it so when you kill a mob, it strikes lightning a few blocks ahead. When I realized it was an item and not a tool (because the model doesnt look like a sword in your hand), I changed it to a tool and made the type a sword. Only problem is I can't figure out how to make it strike lightning when I kill a mob since it doesn't have the same event things. Is there a way to make it so it strikes lightning when I kill a mob with the tool? If so can someone explain to me how? Or maybe make it so the Item one appears as your wielding a sword.

For making the item wielding like a sword, try to edit the tool value of the item, but I don't know if it works.

Sooo, you can go back to that item, copy the code for striking a lightning on kill, and paste it at your desired spot. It works hopefully :3. Also, it's more fun to make mods, when u code some stuff in there aswell. I mean, they even made a "code" tab for coding :3

@#2 Well, I tried adding the thing I thought was the lightning to the weapon. Here's what I added (it was at the end):

public boolean hitEntity(ItemStack itemstack, EntityLivingBase entity, EntityLivingBase entity2) {
            int i = (int) entity.posX;
            int j = (int) entity.posY;
            int k = (int) entity.posZ;
            World world = entity.worldObj;
            if (true) {
                world.spawnEntityInWorld(new EntityLightningBolt(world, i + (0 * 1), j, k + (0 * 1), false));

 

And here's what went wrong (whatever this is):

First time (sorry its so goddamn big):

Second time (added @Override before it)

@#1 Doesnt work, already tried it. It still just looks like your holding a 2D brick or something but in the shape of a sword
