Tile Entity to make an Expanding Block?

Recommended Posts

Heya, I'm trying to create a shield that you place on the ground and it quickly duplicates the source block and creates a 20x20 block wall (stopping at walls and other blocks and conforms to the shape.)  I have a tile entity ready and am in the tick method right now but I'm having trouble figuring out what to type as to accomplish such a task.  Any points in the right direction would be much appreciated!  In the meantime, I'll be doing some digging myself to try and figure it out, though I can't think of another expanding block in Minecraft that I can reference for it.

(Not an actual expanding block, just creating more of the same blocks for a certain range.)

Blocks cannot be larger than 1x1x1. If you need it to fill more space, you need more blocks.

Apparently I'm a complete and utter jerk and come to this forum just like to make fun of people, be confrontational, and make your personal life miserable.  If you think this is the case, JUST REPORT ME.  Otherwise you're just going to get reported when you reply to my posts and point it out, because odds are, I was trying to be nice.

BlockPos#offset(direction, distance)

Level#setBlockState(pos, state)

It's javadoc notation, it means that the method is an instance method, not a static method.

You still use a . when calling it.
