How do i check if my block has a redstone connection


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,


For my mod i am struggling with finding out: How do i check if my block has a redstone connection, and if that connection leads to another block?


I want to have my custom block transfer a signal to another specific block, to perform an action. E.g. a button click to send a signal to another block to make it explode.


Thanks for the help!

if your block extends BlockRedstoneLogic check isGettingInput. Its protected. If it doesn't extend BlockRedstoneLogic  but at least extends BlockDirectional, copy those methods to you from BlockRedstoneLogic:


isGettingInput and getInputStrength.


If your block doesn't extend either of those classes, you can still implement those, with a little more work


edit: oh sorry... you want to know if your block emits a signal? just return something from isProvidingStrongPower and isProvidingWeakPower. Both those methods are defined in Block
