[1.16.5] move block and tileentity


Recommended Posts

Good morning,

I am trying to move a block and his attached tile entity by right-clicking it, because I need the same tile entity data but at another position.

Right now I am moving the block one to the north. Then I get the tile entity at the new position and assign the value of the old tile entity to the new one.

It works, but is there an easier way to solve this without a lot of reassigning?

I tried TileEntity#setPos as well but it doesn't work.


This is my code:

TransferTrackSensorRailTile tileEntity = (TransferTrackSensorRailTile) worldIn.getTileEntity(pos);

//Move block state to north
worldIn.setBlockState(pos.north(), state);

//Get tile entity at new pos and reassign the "old" value
TransferTrackSensorRailTile te = (TransferTrackSensorRailTile) worldIn.getTileEntity(pos.north());

//Set current pos to Air
worldIn.setBlockState(pos, Blocks.AIR.getDefaultState());
