[SOLVED] [1.8] Pillar ItemBlocks


Recommended Posts

I discovered that my problem was that I forgot to actually set iblockstate1 to equal the new value. The new code is this:


package com.henrich.epicwasteoftime.blocks;

import net.minecraft.block.Block;
import net.minecraft.block.state.IBlockState;
import net.minecraft.entity.Entity;
import net.minecraft.entity.player.EntityPlayer;
import net.minecraft.item.ItemBlock;
import net.minecraft.item.ItemStack;
import net.minecraft.util.BlockPos;
import net.minecraft.util.EnumFacing;
import net.minecraft.world.World;

public class ItemPillarBlock extends ItemBlock {

    public ItemPillarBlock(Block block) {
        if (!(block instanceof IMetaBlockName)) {
            throw new IllegalArgumentException(String.format("The given Block %s is not an instance of ISpecialBlockName!", block.getUnlocalizedName()));
     * Called when a Block is right-clicked with this Item
     * @param pos The block being right-clicked
     * @param side The side being right-clicked
    public boolean onItemUse(ItemStack stack, EntityPlayer playerIn, World worldIn, BlockPos pos, EnumFacing side, float hitX, float hitY, float hitZ)
        IBlockState iblockstate = worldIn.getBlockState(pos);
        Block block = iblockstate.getBlock();

        if (!block.isReplaceable(worldIn, pos))
            pos = pos.offset(side);

        if (stack.stackSize == 0)
            return false;
        else if (!playerIn.canPlayerEdit(pos, side, stack))
            return false;
        else if (pos.getY() == 255 && this.block.getMaterial().isSolid())
            return false;
        else if (worldIn.canBlockBePlaced(this.block, pos, false, side, (Entity)null, stack))
            int i = this.getMetadata(stack.getMetadata());
            IBlockState iblockstate1 = this.block.onBlockPlaced(worldIn, pos, side, hitX, hitY, hitZ, i, playerIn);
            switch(side) {
            case UP:
            case DOWN:
            	iblockstate1=iblockstate1.withProperty(PillarBlock.ORIENTATION, PillarBlock.EnumOrientation.Y);
            case NORTH:
            case SOUTH:
            	iblockstate1=iblockstate1.withProperty(PillarBlock.ORIENTATION, PillarBlock.EnumOrientation.Z);
            case EAST:
            case WEST:
            	iblockstate1=iblockstate1.withProperty(PillarBlock.ORIENTATION, PillarBlock.EnumOrientation.X);
            if (placeBlockAt(stack, playerIn, worldIn, pos, side, hitX, hitY, hitZ, iblockstate1))
                worldIn.playSoundEffect((double)((float)pos.getX() + 0.5F), (double)((float)pos.getY() + 0.5F), (double)((float)pos.getZ() + 0.5F), this.block.stepSound.getPlaceSound(), (this.block.stepSound.getVolume() + 1.0F) / 2.0F, this.block.stepSound.getFrequency() * 0.8F);

            return true;
            return false;

    public String getUnlocalizedName(ItemStack stack) {
        return super.getUnlocalizedName(stack);


I should probably try to make a tutorial for this so that no one else has the same problem.


I'm trying to make a pillar block that behaves like the existing log blocks. At the moment the only non-working thing seems to be the ItemBlock, because when I use /setblock nether_tree_wood <0, 1, 2> (where nether_tree_wood is the ID of the block and <0, 1, 2> are the possible metadatas) they get placed just fine with the proper rotations. This is the ItemBlock code I'm using:




If you think you need the rest of the code for this block, it's available on request. I just don't think it's necessary, though I could very well be wrong.

I'll put something here when I have something of value I need to put at the end of every post. For now it's this mostly pointless text.
