Strange division in MCreator
Tue, 11/17/2020 - 08:15

I have coal generator procedure and I want to create progress bar. The max cpacity of generator is 16000. So I want to change range from 0 to 16000 to from 0 to 20. So I am doing this: <energy> / 16000 * 20 = <progress>.

In calculator it's working, but not in MCreator. I have this block in my procedure: https://imgur.com/a/aO8jptH. But it don't work. I always get zero in "progress" tag and it changes to 20 only if block is fully charged. I created logs in console and i know that "get energy" block gives me true value. So MCreator thinks that eg. 1000 / 16000 * 20 = 0. This result is obviously incorrect becouse true result is 1,25. I am rounding it so it's should be 1. I'm doing something wrong or MCreator's division/multiplication is strange or broken?

Divide by 16000.0, or it…

Divide by 16000.0, or it will be rounded to int, which is rounded to 0.

This is how Java divides numbers.
