How to make entity have a 70% chance of being struck by lightning
Tue, 10/19/2021 - 18:45

Hello so I am remaking the copper golem in Minecraft, and I wanna figure out how to make it so if the copper golem is out in the open if it is thundering, it has a 70% chance of getting struck by lightning. Any help?

then check the checkbox Effect Only

and change 0.7 to 0.5

delete all and put this:

if is thundering in the provided world

  do if random 0, 1 <= 0.5

       do wait 100 ticks on server side and do Striker Lightning at X Y Z effect only

3 errors. 

First. on your Entity put the procedure on Update Tick. and don't put anything on Global Triggers

Second. it is <= not < (< but with a line under it)

Third. don't specify the entity, just put the Wait block on random 0 , 1

I changed all the things but now like before, after 100 ticks pass, lightning is just spammed on the copper golem. I want any lightning that strikes nearby to strike him instead, not to generate new ones also

Thu, 10/21/2021 - 17:26

then use NBT Number Tags

remove the wait button. and instead put this: Set NBT Number Tag Timer of entity to Get NBT Number Tag Timer + 1

and then: if NBT Number Tag Timer of entity = 100

do strike lightning at X Y Z

inside Random 0, 1 <= 0.5

if not even that works, you could try setting the 0.5 even lower.
