drop subitems when i harvest blocks


Recommended Posts

Hi, i got a problem and try for hrs to fix it. First i am new to the modding area.


I made ore blocks, just normal block class.

I made gems with subitems.


now when i harvest the ore blocks, i would like does they drop different gems per block.


public Item getItemDropped(int i, Random random, int j){

Item myNewStack;


      ItemStack stack = new ItemStack(GOCItems.itemGems,1,5);

      myNewStack = stack.getItem();


return this == GOCBlocks.topazOre ? myNewStack : Item.getItemFromBlock(this);



I can take what number i want into the code for the damage value, it everytime only drops the itemGem[0]


please help

If you want to drop ItemStacks (which you want, as they contain the damage value) you need to use the


method, which is added by Forge.


Ehm...isn't it getDrops? Anyway, you determine the meta value necessary for the item you want dropped, and then set the damage value accordingly.
