How would I go about getting the NBT tags from an entity? I know they're contained within compounds in chunk > level > entities but I'm not really sure how to go about reading the NBT data. I believe it's a bit more complicated than reading TileEntity tags and requires input and output streams? Could someone post or direct me to a code snippet that shows how to read and write nbt data from the chunk files? Any other helpful information regarding processing NBT data would be appreciated as well. Many thanks! Hmm I did some more digging in the craftbukkit files and found the following class which I managed to overlook previously: https://github.com/Bukkit/CraftBukk...ava/net/minecraft/server/WorldNBTStorage.java This looks like it handles the streaming between .dat files, so this gives me something to fiddle with. Any further guidance would still be welcome but I wanted to post my findings here in the meantime in case other people were wondering the same.
