Proper way to heal a player

What is the proper way to heal a player. I can’t use HealthData because it’s an abstract class.

HealthData is the correct thing to use, your heal method would look something like this:

public void heal(Player player) {
    HealthData health = player.getHealthData();

I think it would actually be living.setHealthData. Living is the only class I can find with any health function, but you can’t set it. Looked through the API code myself

Nope the snipit that I wrote is correct. There is no ‘Living.setHealthData’ all data manipulators are set back to their holders with the offer method.

If you are basing the fact that I am incorrect on it throwing an AbstractMethodError that is because it is not yet implemented, but will be soon.

As far as I understand, Entity.offer is used to set the changed data of an entity or is it just for the health data?

Offer is for all data.

Abstract class just means that it is not implemented yet.

Uhm, no? Abstract class means that you cannot instantiate it. It means you’ll have to use a subclass that is not abstract to create an instance.
An abstract class is very much implemented.


That’s strange, I thought you had to do


or something

That is the same thing, getHealthData is just a short-cut


So I saw that the Health Data got implemented and decided to test it out but I still get the abstraction error. This is what I am trying to do.


This is the error I am getting.


I am using Sponge Forge, the latest build.

It Looks like it’s not implemented yet.

hmm, how can I use this?

It’s implemented, but the entity.getHealthData shortcut method isn’t.

Try the full Player.getData(HealthData.class).get()
