[1.8] getMetadataFromState & getStateFromMetadata is confusing me.


Recommended Posts



After reading


I still have problems understanding how to use/write getMetadataFromState and getStateFromMetadata.


I want to have my block updated on the outside depending on how much fuel (in my case, ice) is left, actually I want to show kind of a progress bar on the outside of my block by using different textures. At the moment I am using JSON blockstate files with variants: 'facing=north,ice=ice2',...

But I don't get it to work.


Does anyone know how to do this or has any tips to get started again? Thanks in advance.


JSON blockstate file:




IceCreamMaker.java: (Block class)
