173 - Recording of CustomNameVisible/all NBT tags

What steps will reproduce the problem?
  1. Use an NBT editor such as PowerNBT to add a CustomName tag to a mob.
  2. Use an NBT editor such as PowerNBT to add a CustomNameVisible tag to a mob in order to see the above name tag from a greater distance away.
  3. Catch the mob.
  4. Respawn the captured mob.
What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

Ideally, all NBT tags would be recorded when capturing a mob, in this specific case I want the CustomNameVisible tag to be recorded.

As it stands, the CustomNameVisible tag is not recorded, so when a mob is respawned, it retains the CustomName tag, but loses the CustomNameVisible tag.

What versions MobCatcher, CraftBukkit, and Spout (if any) are you using?
  • MobCatcher 3.17
  • CraftBukkit version git-Spigot-1543 (MC: 1.7.9) (Implementing API version 1.7.9-R0.3-SNAPSHOT)
Have you previously had any older versions of MobCatcher on your server?


Do you have an error log of what happened?
