[1.7.10]Block update?

Recommended Posts

I am trying to do some block updates per tick. Something like when the tile entity component detects something (rain) it sends redstone / signal to the block and the block lights up.

 

Problem is:

Lighting is done in Block.

Detect is done in TileEntity.

Any idea how these 2 mix together?

A TileEntity is still supplied by the block.  You can set the TE's block's metadata and use that to change the lighting.

Apparently I'm a complete and utter jerk and come to this forum just like to make fun of people, be confrontational, and make your personal life miserable.  If you think this is the case, JUST REPORT ME.  Otherwise you're just going to get reported when you reply to my posts and point it out, because odds are, I was trying to be nice.

You should never need to call readFromNBT or writeToNBT yourself.

 

Remember that a TileEntity has a block in the world, and if you know how to make a block change its light value, you do the same thing for TileEntities.
