[1.8] Block state reset after right click


Recommended Posts

Title said it all actually, my block state resets when i right click on it with an empty hand.

So this is the block code.

public abstract class BlockRotateable extends BlockBaseContainer implements IRotateable{

public static final PropertyEnum DIRECTION = PropertyEnum.create("direction", EnumFacing.class);

public BlockRotateable(String name, Material material) {
	super(name, material);
	this.isBlockContainer = true;

public boolean onBlockActivated(World worldIn, BlockPos pos, IBlockState state, EntityPlayer playerIn, EnumFacing side, float hitX, float hitY, float hitZ) {
	return true;

public IBlockState onBlockPlaced(World worldIn, BlockPos pos, EnumFacing facing, float hitX, float hitY, float hitZ, int meta, EntityLivingBase placer){
	return super.onBlockPlaced(worldIn, pos, facing, hitX, hitY, hitZ, meta, placer).withProperty(DIRECTION, facing);

public final EnumFacing getDirection(World worldObj, BlockPos pos){
	return (EnumFacing) worldObj.getBlockState(pos).getValue(DIRECTION);

public void setRotation(World world, BlockPos pos, EnumFacing rotation) {
	IBlockState state = world.getBlockState(pos).withProperty(DIRECTION, rotation);
	world.setBlockState(pos, state);

public IBlockState getStateFromMeta(int meta){
	return this.getDefaultState().withProperty(DIRECTION, DirectionHelper.byIndex(meta));

public int getMetaFromState(IBlockState state){
	return ((EnumFacing)state.getValue(DIRECTION)).getIndex();

protected BlockState createBlockState(){
	return new BlockState(this, new IProperty[] {DIRECTION});


Im probally missing something but i cant figure out what.

Any help is much appreciated :)


EDIT: i am using the onItemUseFirst method in a item class to change the block state.

oops my bad :P

here it is

public boolean onItemUseFirst(ItemStack stack, EntityPlayer player, World world, BlockPos pos, EnumFacing side, float hitX, float hitY, float hitZ){
	Block block = world.getBlockState(pos).getBlock();
	if(block instanceof IRotateable){
		EnumFacing facing = ((IRotateable) block).getDirection(world, pos);
		((IRotateable) block).setRotation(world, pos, DirectionHelper.getNext(facing));
		System.out.println(((IRotateable) block).getDirection(world, pos));
		return true;
	return false;

So i put the !world.isRemote check and it turns out the method does not get called on the servers side.

I thought it would because it doesn't have a SideOnly annotation.

I already tried the onItemUse method but that doesn't seem to call when i right click the desired block.

Is there another method that does the same thing as the onItemUseFirst method?
