Making Blocks Drop Items


Recommended Posts

So, by looking at the title you're probably passing me up as an average Joe that knows no code, but you are wrong! *dun, dun, duuuun!*


More seriously, though, I have 3 different ore blocks and I want them all to drop gems of themselves (say RubyOre drops RubyGem) but I refuse to make classes for them just to say I want them to drop these items.


rubyOre = new Block(MASS_Info.rubyOreID, Material.rock);


That is the example I want to use. I want my ores to just be basic blocks and to Extend Block and not have to create individual classes.


My question is can I change what they drop in my base classes init() method?

For example, is there a method or a function to do so?

Nope. Sorry.

I have also found that I really love making extremely long and extremely but sometimes not so descriptive variables. Sort of like what I just did there xD

So my compromise was to make one BlockOre.class and inside put the method:


public int idDropped(int par1, Random par2Random, int par3) {
	if (blockID == MyBlocks.myOre1.blockID) {
		return MyItems.myGem1.itemID;
	if (blockID == MyBlocks.myOre2.blockID) {
		return MyItems.myGem2.itemID;
	if (blockID == MyBlocks.myOre3.blockID) {
		return MyItems.myGem3.itemID;

	return blockID;
