Good day skript community. Few days back i started with NMS part of Minecraft i want to add totally customizable entities. Now i only need to check from config when spawning them what behaviour set them. So i store the ID/Name of entity in it's metadata.

    public void spawnEntity(Object entity, Location loc, String ID) {
        net.minecraft.server.v1_11_R1.Entity ent = (net.minecraft.server.v1_11_R1.Entity) entity;
        ent.getBukkitEntity().setMetadata("ID", new FixedMetadataValue(AnerCraftRPG.getInstance(),ID));
        ent.setLocation(loc.getX(), loc.getY(), loc.getZ(), loc.getYaw(), loc.getPitch());
        System.out.println(ent.getBukkitEntity().getMetadata("ID").get(0).asString()); //Return ID

Before this i create a new instance of customZombie class - That's works nice. But problem is when i try to acces the MetaData value from the customZombie class.

public class customZombie extends EntityZombie {

    public customZombie(World world) {

    protected void r() {
        if (!AnerCraftRPG.mobs.getYml().getBoolean("Customer.Pushable")) {
        } else {

    protected void i() { //This trigger when the entity is initialized
        System.out.println(this.getBukkitEntity().getMetadata("ID")); //Return empty array

Can you please help me ?
Thanks for any help, HamAndRock.
I already solved the problem by adding ID to Queue and then when create a class looking into that Queue and get current ID. Problem was taht the class was initialized before the Metada was set :emoji_slight_smile:.

Sorry, for late answear.
