    posted a message on How do I show text while holding an item and make a global variable?

    The way I do it is by subscribing to the RenderGameOverlayEvent. Since this is only called client side, you can safely use Minecraft.getMinecraft() to access any client side information (like the player). You can then check the player is holding the desired item, and get whatever information you need.

    About data tied to each player, I suggest you use Capabilities (have a search for it). I've not played with it much yet, but you can attach capabilities to players to store whatever data you want. You could then retrieve it in your overlay rendering to show the data on the screen.

    Thanks for the help so far, but what class should I put the first part in?

    I have an item in my mod called the Endowing Rod. It is similar to Botania's divining rod. I want to make it show some on screen text when holding the item, but I don't know how.


    if holding item

    showtextonscreen(Network Energy: + player's energy)

    if not holding item


    I need player's energy to be a variable that is for each player, so they all can have an individual energy value.

    I'm guessing the on-screen text needs to be in the loop of the game's logic so the energy value can be updated when it goes up or down.

    Thanks in advance!

    Just wondering, how does someone learn everything they need to know about forge to make a mod like Botania. I looked at botania's github and I don't understand much of it. Most tutorials don't go into detail for the exact stuff I'm looking to add to my mod.

    posted a message on Making a Tile Entity & Beacons

    Hello. I have recently started working on a mod. I want to make a tile entity similar to the Botania Runic Altar for crafting, but all the tile entity tutorials are either out of date or say conflicting things. Can someone please link me to an up-to-date version? I would like to have items float around the crafter I'm making but I guess I should get it working first before I go all fancy.

    Also, how does a beacon scan to know how many tiers are built on it and how does it know when blocks on it are broken. Beacons are a big part of my mod so I need to make this efficient. If you could direct me towards the beacon's class file or something similar that would be great.
