    Hello Community,

    I want to programm something like a catapult.

    I have y-coordinate, but the x & z coordinate is very difficult.

    Need help :


    I need to know how much z and x I must give.

    Thanks :)

    try and error, set the z and x whatever and if you like it keep it, if not put other co-ords in

    But it's not the same...
    It is the line of sight.
    so it can be different every time

    You can get a players view-direction vector via player.getLocation().getDirection();

    Where exactly are you trying to catapult the player?

    I want the hubboost from hive.
    If you know this.
    It's not a catapult.
    I only want the boost

    Nope, don't know that, never played on whatever server you're talking about. It kind of annoys me when people say "I can't explain what I'm trying to do, it's exactly what this other server does". I'm not coming down on you for unoriginality, but if you want help, you could start by explaining a little more about what you want.

    I am just trying to explain what I want -.-
    I want a boost in the air in the players direction.

    I did it alone :

    player.setVelocity(new Vector(player.getVelocity().getX(), 1.0D, player.getVelocity().getZ()));
    Thanks anyway
