Need Help - Grappling Whip
Tue, 01/07/2020 - 18:20

Hello there, new to this site and MCreator, but willing and wanting to learn.

Currently I wish to create a mod where you have whips, which are not just weapons but also serve as grappling hooks to attach to blocks or draw mobs near.
I have an item created, but I need help in figuring out what procedures I need to use to make the whip serve as a grappling hook:

1. When you right click it, a 3D like rope/chain extends 8 blocks out from the player. (I'm guessing I need to make that a separate texture.)
2. When the rope/chain hits a block, it will stick to it and the player will start swinging.
3. WASD would control which direction the player swings, SPACE and SHIFT would control the length of the rope/chain, allowing the player to rise or lower themselves, and pressing right click again will detach the rope/chain from the block.
4. If you were to grapple onto a mob, the player would then right click again and it would pull that mob toward the player.

Is there anyone who could give a step by step of sorts on which parameters or coding I would need to do to get that to work? I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you in advance,
TimeWarper94⌚

I don't know how to do that, if Mcreator can. RaolTheBest or Klemen might know.

And you also need Techne/ Blockbench/ Tabula to create the model for the chain.

Creating the model will be no trouble for me, I'm certain I can figure it out.
It's combining it together and coding it to do what I want that's the tricky part.
Are RaolTheBest and Klemen users on this site?
