  1. What is the 1.17 recommended way to get the text of an inventory item NBT tag?
    Under 1.16, I used the following method to get the NBT of an inventory slot i:

    Code (Text):
    ItemStack itemStack = inv.getItem(i);
    net.minecraft.server.v1_16_R3.ItemStack CBStack = CraftItemStack.asNMSCopy(itemStack);
    NBTTagCompound itemTag = CBStack.getTag();
    String parsedString = MojangsonParser.parse(tagString).toString();
    String tagString = itemTag.toString();
    obviously net.minecraft.server.v1_16_R3.ItemStack does not work in 1.17, so how to do it then?

  2. change:
    Code (Java):
    Code (Java):
    Or use Reflection (better in my opinion).
  3. Thanks a lot, tried it but I'm getting a

    Code (Text):
    incompatible types: net.minecraft.world.item.ItemStack cannot be converted to org.bukkit.craftbukkit.v1_17_R1.inventory.CraftItemStack
  4. Are there no errors in your code and the error only occurs at build time?

    • Agree Agree x 1
  7. Code (Java):
    ItemStack spigotItem = new ItemStack(Material.DIRT);
    net.minecraft.world.item.ItemStack item = CraftItemStack.asNMSCopy(spigotItem);
    String nbt = item.getTag().toString();
  8. Oh, my bad...
  9. It works now, thanks a lot!
