How to set default drop in Block class?


Recommended Posts

I created a new block and I want it to drop a vanilla diorite block.  How would I go about this?


Here's my class.  Sorry, It wouldn't let me place it in a spoiler.


public class stoneBlock extends Block{


public stoneBlock(Material materialIn) {


this.setHarvestLevel("pickaxe", 0);



public Item getItemDropped(IBlockState state, Random rand, int fortune){

return new ItemStack(Item.getItemFromBlock(Blocks.stone), 1, 3);

There are 3 methods responsible for dropping.


When Block is broken, game asks "getDrops" for dropList - List<ItemStack>.

To get full control over drops you can override it and simply return List containing whatever you want.


If you don't want to override it - this method (getDrops) asks "quantityDropped" and "getItemDropped" for quantity and item of dropped item. You can override any of them to get what you want.


getItemDropped + quantityDropped



                          V  <- applies forge event



              drops ItemStacks.


You can hook yourself anywhere.

1.7.10 is no longer supported by forge, you are on your own.
