    1.8.8 WASD Entity Control

    I don't know if there is a tread about this but i'm sorry if there is. I've been working for the past hour / 2 hours getting this bloody entity control down and finally I got it. Ima just leave it here for anyone that wants to be lazy (like I wanted).

    This is a pig. Pigs are cool. This can be done with any entity that extends EntityInsentient.

    import java.lang.reflect.Field;
    import net.minecraft.server.v1_8_R3.EntityHuman;
    import net.minecraft.server.v1_8_R3.EntityInsentient;

    public class RidablePig extends EntityPig{
        protected Field FIELD_JUMP = null;
        public RidablePig(World world) {
            if (FIELD_JUMP == null) {
                try {
                   FIELD_JUMP = EntityLiving.class.getDeclaredField("aY");
                } catch (NoSuchFieldException e) {
        public void g(float f, float f1) {
            if(this.passenger != null && this.passenger instanceof EntityHuman)

                        this.ai = true;
                        if (f1 > 0.0F)
                            float f2 = MathHelper.sin(this.yaw * 3.141593F / 180.0F);
                            float f3 = MathHelper.cos(this.yaw * 3.141593F / 180.0F);

                if(f4 > 1.0F)

            } else {

    Just put something about it in the OP maybe.

    @Mrs. bwfctower He stated 1.8.8. Seeing as I've seen threads for this for other version as well (I don't know if the methods are the same but I'll assume they changed since there is a new thread for the different version), I wouldn't worry about it.

    @Mrs. bwfctower @teej107 This was made because I couldn't find a 1.8.8 version as the NMS changes each time (pain in the ass). So I looked into the new horse, looked at old posts, combined, tried, tried, tried, self harmed and finally got it to work for 1.8.8. This is not a library or util its simply showing how to do WASD control.

    This thread is not for those that don't know basic NMS.

    @Mrs. bwfctower
    If you want to make a library for all versions be my guest, but I can update the code for my server when I need to. (YAY 1.9 SOON :D). I'm sure many people will find this EXTREMELY useful. So instead of telling me what to do, leave my thread alone and say something nice for once and stop hating.

    I wouldn't really call this a "tutorial", because you're not teaching anything, you're just giving people the code they need.
