1.13 particle enums problem

Discussion in 'Spigot Plugin Development' started by Nort721, Sep 16, 2018.

  1. so, I have decided to make an update to my plugin so it will work with 1.13 since all the sound enums have been changed (for no reason) so after updating all the sound enums I saw that the particle enums also have changed since I am using the cloud particle on my plugin so I have checked in a few websites for the new enums
    link: https://hub.spigotmc.org/javadocs/spigot/org/bukkit/Particle.html
    you can see there that the cloud enum is still called could but when I run the plugin I get errors because of the enum, so I decided to swap the library to the 1.13 library to try and find the actual name but I found nothing that has the word cloud in the name or something that sounds like a cloud effect. can someone help me with that or tell me what's going on?
    how can I use the cloud particle in 1.13 maybe there is another way that i don't know about?
    also if a spigot staff see this can you tell us why do you change the sound enums all the time what benefit does it gives now if I want my plugin to work with 1.8 - .13 I need to do tons of if statements just to play one sound :(
    Code (Text):

                        if (p.isFlying()) {
                            if (version.contains("1.13"))
                                p.spigot().playEffect(p.getLocation().add(0, -0.6, 0), Effect.valueOf("???"), 0, 0, 0f, 0f, 0f, 0.1f, 14,
                                p.spigot().playEffect(p.getLocation().add(0, -0.6, 0), Effect.CLOUD, 0, 0, 0f, 0f, 0f, 0.1f, 14,

    The issue is most likely from the fact that you have two different versions of Minecraft as dependencies in your IDE, From what I can tell, there is no Cloud effect in 1.13 or 1.13.1
  3. Reflection is your friend.

    Reflection won't actually help, as the field in that enum no longer exists, I have looked at the source code to find this information out (The one from BuildTools)
  5. The playEffect method has been removed I noticed, however, Player#spawnParticle method exists.
  6. I do not have two different versions on my IDE my plugin is made with the 1.8.8 build but my plugin will check what version is the server and make the enum changes
    stuff like that
    Code (Text):

    if (Bukkit.getVersion().contains("1.9")) {
         player.playSound(player.getEyeLocation(), Sound.valueOf("BLOCK_NOTE_PLING"), 1, 1);
    } else {
         player.playSound(player.getEyeLocation(), Sound.NOTE_PLING, 1, 1);
  7. How about your own enum?
    Cloud("1.8name", "1.12name", "1.13name")
    Than write your own send particle method and depending on the version do get1_13Particles or so and send them how each version wants it

    Actually the playEffect method has been moved from spigot() to the actual interface.

    Ah, there is the issue, the Cloud effect does not exist in 1.13, not sure if it exists above 1.8.8 even

  10. Fam there are a ton of more changed enums, and creating your own enum with the values from all versions will be the best and the easiest solution for anyone.
  11. That's not the only problem, the methods have been moved from one class to another.
  12. wait so if they moved the method classes how can I make the plugin work for 1.8.8 - 1.12.2 which has the method of the spigot class and on 1.13 which has the method on the player class?
  13. cloud effect exist on 1.8.8 - 1.12.2 with
    p.spigot().playEffect(p.getLocation().add(0, -0.6, 0), Effect.CLOUD, 0, 0, 0f, 0f, 0f, 0.1f, 14,
    and in 1.13.1 its p.spawnParticle(Particle.CLOUD, p.getLocation().add(0, -0.6, 0), 0, 0, 0, 0);
  14. Reflection is your friend.
  15. Particle and sound enigma change OFTEN, usually about every major update. With updates like 1.13 sooo much changed a lot of things broke and have to be done in very different ways. If you’re going to support ALL versions of Minecraft be prepared to write a lot of code over and over to do the same thing depending on the version.

  16. but I don't need only to import from different classes I need to use methods from different classes
  17. Not really, the only big change from 1.8 > higher are the sound enums and some particle enums, nothing more. 1.13 has a ton of new features and is basically an overhauled version of 1.12.
  18. Reflection is never your friend. It's an absolute last resort when everything else fails. In this case, any many others, there too many good alternatives to fall back to reflection (which is not only slower, it's also error prone)
