onBlockAdded? (Not working)


Recommended Posts

Basically, I'm trying to make a block that spawns in one of my structures, and when it's generated, I want it to spawn an entity and replace itself with air.



I'm not sure if I'm missing something, here is my code:




package terramagna.blocks;

import java.util.Random;

import cpw.mods.fml.common.registry.GameRegistry;
import net.minecraft.block.material.Material;
import net.minecraft.creativetab.CreativeTabs;
import net.minecraft.entity.EntityLivingBase;
import net.minecraft.item.ItemStack;
import net.minecraft.world.World;

public class BlockSpawnEntity extends BlockBase

public BlockSpawnEntity(int id, Material material, String name, CreativeTabs tab)

	super(id, material, name, tab);

	GameRegistry.registerBlock(this, this.getUnlocalizedName());


public void onBlockAdded(World par1World, int par2, int par3, int par4)

None of the "onBlock..." functions are called during chunk generation, to do that you need to find and override the chunk generation code to insert your block. This is no easy task.


For reference, this is the order in which the functions are called when you place a block:

  • onBlockPlaced() client
  • onBlockPlacedBy() client
  • onBlockPlaced() server
  • onBlockAdded() server
  • onBlockPlacedBy() server

The "client" labels indicate that world.isRemote returned TRUE. Again, none of these functions are called during chunk generation.
