Lightning bolt summoned by /summon is offset +0.5x and +0.5z


    • Confirmed

      The bug

      When you summon a lightning bolt with the /summon command, it will appear +0.5x and +0.5z from the coordinates you specified.

      How to reproduce

      Easy way to test this: Stand in the centre of a block and type /summon lightning_bolt ~ ~ ~. The lightning bolt will hit the corner of the block you're on in the direction of +x and +z, instead of the centre of the block. You can type /summon lightning_bolt ~-1 ~ ~-1 to see it hit the opposite corner. The lightning bolt is not rounding off to the nearest block corner, as you can have it strike the centre of a block by standing on the corner of a block and entering the command with integer coordinates. This works with absolute coordinates as well.

      Code analysis

      Based on 1.11.2 decompiled using MCP 9.35 rc1

      The method net.minecraft.client.renderer.entity.RenderLightningBolt.doRender(EntityLightningBolt, double, double, double, float, float) offsets the x and z coordinate by 0.5. If this is removed the method net.minecraft.world.WorldServer.updateBlocks() should offset the x- and z-coordinates of the spawned lightning bolts by 0.5.
