[Solved] [1.16.5] Schedule block ticks -- can't get new system to work?


Recommended Posts

In 1.12, it was easy to have things occur on a block at regular intervals without a block entity: just schedule a block tick, override the block's tick method, and everything worked. I'm trying that now in 1.16.5 and getting nowhere.

I have this in my block's class:

	public void setPlacedBy(World world, BlockPos pos, BlockState state, @Nullable LivingEntity player,
			ItemStack stack) {
		super.setPlacedBy(world, pos, state, player, stack);
		System.out.println("Placed block!");
		world.getChunk(pos).getBlockTicks().scheduleTick(pos, this, 1);
		if (world.getChunk(pos).getBlockTicks().hasScheduledTick(pos, this)) {
			System.out.println("SCHEDULED TICK");
		} else {
			System.out.println("DID NOT SCHEDULE TICK");

It always logs "DID NOT SCHEDULE TICK". I continued testing by implementing the block's tick method, which I saw is now deprecated, to log stuff, and it's never called. Since it's deprecated, it looks like I'm meant to somehow handle block ticks through the block state's tick method, but I'm not sure how to do that since block states go through layers of builders and abstraction. I tried just creating my own class that extends BlockState, except it implements the tick method, and then copying the Block class's constructor's code for registering state except using my custom class, and that also failed to get any results.

How am I meant to schedule and handle block ticks in the new version of Forge? I can't even seem to find any documentation on the changes online anywhere.

Do not use the Chunk's tick list. Use ServerWorld#getBlockTicks to schedule ticks.

Mojang uses deprecations in the block class usually to mean "do not call this", overriding th emethod is fine.

🤦‍♂️ It would be a misunderstanding like that... Thank you, it works perfectly now! You're becoming quite invaluable to my return to modding, and I fully appreciate all your help!
