    • spawn

      @NotNull <T extends LivingEntity> T spawn(@NotNull @NotNull Location location, @NotNull @NotNull Class<T> clazz, @NotNull CreatureSpawnEvent.SpawnReason spawnReason, boolean randomizeData, @Nullable @Nullable Consumer<? super T> function) throws IllegalArgumentException
      Creates a new entity at the given Location with the supplied function run before the entity is added to the world.
      Note that when the function is run, the entity will not be actually in the world. Any operation involving such as teleporting the entity is undefined until after this function returns. The passed function however is run after the potential entity's spawn randomization and hence already allows access to the values of the mob, whether or not those were randomized, such as attributes or the entity equipment.
      Type Parameters:
      T - the generic type of the entity that is being created.
      Parameters:
      location - the location at which the entity will be spawned.
      clazz - the class of the LivingEntity that is to be spawned.
      spawnReason - the reason provided during the CreatureSpawnEvent call.
      randomizeData - whether or not the entity's data should be randomised before spawning. By default entities are randomised before spawning in regards to their equipment, age, attributes, etc. An example of this randomization would be the color of a sheep, random enchantments on the equipment of mobs or even a zombie becoming a chicken jockey. If set to false, the entity will not be randomised before spawning, meaning all their data will remain in their default state and not further modifications to the entity will be made. Notably only entities that extend the Mob interface provide randomisation logic for their spawn. This parameter is hence useless for any other type of entity.
      function - the function to be run before the entity is spawned.
      Returns:
      the spawned entity instance.
      Throws:
      IllegalArgumentException - if either the world or clazz parameter are null.

    • locateNearestStructure

      @Nullable @Deprecated @Nullable Location locateNearestStructure(@NotNull @NotNull Location origin, @NotNull StructureType structureType, int radius, boolean findUnexplored)
      Find the closest nearby structure of a given StructureType. Finding unexplored structures can, and will, block if the world is looking in chunks that have not generated yet. This can lead to the world temporarily freezing while locating an unexplored structure.

      The radius is not a rigid square radius. Each structure may alter how many chunks to check for each iteration. Do not assume that only a radius x radius chunk area will be checked. For example, StructureType.WOODLAND_MANSION can potentially check up to 20,000 blocks away (or more) regardless of the radius used.

      This will not load or generate chunks. This can also lead to instances where the server can hang if you are only looking for unexplored structures. This is because it will keep looking further and further out in order to find the structure.

      Parameters:
      origin - where to start looking for a structure
      structureType - the type of structure to find
      radius - the radius, in chunks, around which to search
      findUnexplored - true to only find unexplored structures
      Returns:
      the closest Location, or null if no structure of the specified type exists.

    • locateNearestStructure

      @Nullable @Nullable StructureSearchResult locateNearestStructure(@NotNull @NotNull Location origin, @NotNull @NotNull StructureType structureType, int radius, boolean findUnexplored)
      Find the closest nearby structure of a given StructureType. Finding unexplored structures can, and will, block if the world is looking in chunks that have not generated yet. This can lead to the world temporarily freezing while locating an unexplored structure.

      The radius is not a rigid square radius. Each structure may alter how many chunks to check for each iteration. Do not assume that only a radius x radius chunk area will be checked. For example, StructureType.WOODLAND_MANSION can potentially check up to 20,000 blocks away (or more) regardless of the radius used.

      This will not load or generate chunks. This can also lead to instances where the server can hang if you are only looking for unexplored structures. This is because it will keep looking further and further out in order to find the structure.

      The difference between searching for a StructureType and a Structure is, that a StructureType can refer to multiple Structures while searching for a Structure while only search for the given Structure.

      Parameters:
      origin - where to start looking for a structure
      structureType - the type of structure to find
      radius - the radius, in chunks, around which to search
      findUnexplored - true to only find unexplored structures

    • locateNearestBiome

      @Nullable @Nullable BiomeSearchResult locateNearestBiome(@NotNull @NotNull Location origin, int radius, @NotNull @NotNull Biome... biomes)
      Find the closest nearby location with a biome matching the provided Biome(s). Finding biomes can, and will, block if the world is looking in chunks that have not generated yet. This can lead to the world temporarily freezing while locating a biome.

      Note: This will not reflect changes made to the world after generation, this method only sees the biome at the time of world generation. This will not load or generate chunks.

      If multiple biomes are provided BiomeSearchResult.getBiome() will indicate which one was located.

      This method will use a horizontal interval of 32 and a vertical interval of 64, equal to the /locate command.

      Parameters:
      origin - where to start looking for a biome
      radius - the radius, in blocks, around which to search
      biomes - the biomes to search for
      Returns:

      radius - the radius, in blocks, around which to search
      horizontalInterval - the horizontal distance between each check
