Unable to set Required Tool Type for Custom Block [1.17.1]


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I've just recently started getting into modding and thought I'd try to add a custom block to the game. When I was trying to set the properties for said block, I am unable to specify the .harvestTool() or the .harvestLevel() properties, they seem to simply not exist for me as they do not appear in the Tab list when entering a full-stop. Could anyone have a look at my code and see where I'm going wrong? I'm using the official 1.17.1 mappings:

package com.thebeefbai.testmod.block;

import com.thebeefbai.testmod.TestMod;
import com.thebeefbai.testmod.item.ModItemGroup;
import com.thebeefbai.testmod.item.ModItems;
import net.minecraft.world.item.BlockItem;
import net.minecraft.world.item.Item;
import net.minecraft.world.item.PickaxeItem;
import net.minecraft.world.level.block.Block;
import net.minecraft.world.level.block.Blocks;
import net.minecraft.world.level.block.SoundType;
import net.minecraft.world.level.block.state.BlockBehaviour;
import net.minecraft.world.level.material.Material;
import net.minecraft.world.level.material.MaterialColor;
import net.minecraftforge.eventbus.api.IEventBus;
import net.minecraftforge.fmllegacy.RegistryObject;
import net.minecraftforge.registries.DeferredRegister;
import net.minecraftforge.registries.ForgeRegistries;

import java.util.function.Supplier;

public class ModBlocks {

    public static final DeferredRegister<Block> BLOCKS = DeferredRegister.create(ForgeRegistries.BLOCKS, TestMod.MOD_ID);

    public static final RegistryObject<Block> SUPERSTARBLOCK = registerBlock("superstarblock", () -> new Block(BlockBehaviour.Properties.of(Material.STONE, MaterialColor.COLOR_YELLOW).strength(1.0f, 1.0f)));

    private static <T extends Block>RegistryObject<T> registerBlock(String name, Supplier<T> block){
        RegistryObject<T> toReturn = BLOCKS.register(name, block);
        registerBlockItem(name, toReturn);
        return toReturn;

    private static <T extends Block> void registerBlockItem(String name, RegistryObject<T> block){
        ModItems.ITEMS.register(name, () -> new BlockItem(block.get(), new Item.Properties().tab(ModItemGroup.TEST_GROUP)));

    public static void register(IEventBus eventBus) {
