    as the title says, i try to get a reference to an entity who's placed arround a given location or on a block's face. (And, of course, do something with it) I crawled trough the javadocs for a while but the only way i found is, to watch if any entity fires some events near my location.

    Is there any other way to do so? Don't look like the best to me.

    Sorry 4 bad english, it's damn late. ;)

    In the end, i solved it this way:

    public  static ArrayList<Player> players = new ArrayList<Player>();
    public void onPlayerJoin(PlayerEvent e) {
    public void someFunction(Block block){
      ArrayList<Player> players = SimpleElevators.players;
      for (int x = 0; x < players.size() ; x++){
      if(players.get(x).getLocation().getBlockX() == block.getLocation().getBlockX() &&
          players.get(x).getLocation().getBlockY() == block.getLocation().getBlockY() &&
          players.get(x).getLocation().getBlockZ() == block.getLocation().getBlockZ()
    Maybe it's useful for someone. If there's a better way, i would be happy to know.
