About the plugin


This plugin adds two new procedure blocks that allow to get an entity's namespaced ID and Universal Unique Identifier (UUID).

This can be useful to get an entity to use in commands, or use other mod's entities without having it as dependency. The UUID can also work for player-specific cosmetics, among other uses.


Works for Forge 1.18.2 and 1.16.5



This example procedure will use the "Player right clicks on entity" global trigger to display both UUID and namespaced ID in the player's chat.

Want to update, set the entity ID, not like McReator and name brand

You can't change an entity's UUID, as that's their Unique Universal Identifier and is different from each entity. The entity's ID also can't be changed as that's defined by the mod (ex. mymod:myentity or minecraft:pig)
