[1.8] how to properly get all the info a block


DJD

Recommended Posts

What is the best way to take a block that exists in the world and generate all the known info about that block (including its current states, etc) ?

 

I can get the Base state (and then there's default state- not really sure what the real difference is but I'm sure its something crucial) and list its IProperties, but not the current value that they are set to.

 

I think it would clarify (at least in my mind) the proper way to use Blockstates and IBlockStates to do things in world.

 

Maybe its just late here for me or I really am confused... Probably both.... :D

Use

World#getBlockState

to get the current block state at the specified position, then use

IBlockState#getValue

to get the value of each property.

 

Some blocks have properties that aren't stored in the metadata (e.g. connection state of panes), you can use

Block#getExtendedState

to get an

IBlockState

with the actual values of these properties.

Please don't PM me to ask for help. Asking your question in a public thread preserves it for people who are having the same problem in the future.

I think my confusion is that since I'm new to modding this game, the previous version (1.7) did things differently and when I look for examples, I get stuff that's for the previous version.

 

The info out there seems a bit muddled right now for a newbie, and depending on which version you are modding for. I'm sure things will clear up just in time for 1.9 to hit :D

 

I've got a basic mod working (proxies, commands, extended player properties etc) and a very basic cut/paste model (that's where I need to get and save all the properties of the blockstate). Now I want to get a list of each block selected and its various properties (in vanilla of course).....

 

So much to do :D

    • Remove these mods and combine OptiFine HD U I6 with Forge 47.2.18 Start with Optifine - without any other mods - if this works, add the mods one by one or in groups until you find the mod, conflicting with Optifine
    • Ok yeah I think this might be where the problem starts. For starters, I think you can get rid of your RecipeType impl and make it a static constant instead. I'm not 100% sure this will fix it but it's posssible. RuneInscribingRecipe public class RuneInscribingRecipe implements Recipe<SimpleContainer> { public static final RecipeType<RuneInscribingRecipe> RECIPE_TYPE = new RecipeType<>(){}; // .... @Override public RecipeType<?> getType() { return RECIPE_TYPE; } // .... } RuneInscriberMenu private Optional<RecipeHolder<RuneInscribingRecipe>> getCurrentRecipe() { SimpleContainer inventory = new SimpleContainer(2); inventory.setItem(BASE_INPUT_SLOT, this.inventory.getStackInSlot(BASE_INPUT_SLOT)); inventory.setItem(TEMPLATE_INPUT_SLOT, this.inventory.getStackInSlot(TEMPLATE_INPUT_SLOT)); List<RecipeHolder<RuneInscribingRecipe>> list = this.blockEntity.getLevel().getRecipeManager().getRecipesFor(RuneInscribingRecipe.RECIPE_TYPE, inventory, this.blockEntity.getLevel()); if (list.isEmpty()) { return Optional.empty(); } return Optional.of(list.get(0)); }   Also, this here is a little suspicious where you're getting the `this.inventory.getStackInSlot` calls. I'd try and make sure those are what you expect they are with either a Debug line in IDE or print statement SimpleContainer inventory = new SimpleContainer(2); inventory.setItem(BASE_INPUT_SLOT, this.inventory.getStackInSlot(BASE_INPUT_SLOT)); System.out.printf("CHECKING BASE INPUT OF RECIPE: %s\n", this.inventory.getStackInSlot(BASE_INPUT_SLOT)); inventory.setItem(TEMPLATE_INPUT_SLOT, this.inventory.getStackInSlot(TEMPLATE_INPUT_SLOT)); System.out.printf("CHECKING TEMPLATE INPUT OF RECIPE: %s\n", this.inventory.getStackInSlot(TEMPLATE_INPUT_SLOT)); ^ See what the result of those print statements are, make sure they're right
    • Upon testing again after adding them, the game still doesn't crash however the resource packs are still unfortunately broken.
    • Hi! Can someone please point me to the correct FAQ or place? I'm not able do DuckDuckGo myself out of this one. As you can hopefully see, chunks are not rendered. I run a forge server, fresh install on a linux VM. Curseforge on the Win11 client with Embeddium, Oculus and Unbound shader. No mods. Forge 47.2.23 on server & client.  No errors, no crashes, no apparent CPU or RAM issues with the VM. This screenshot was captured while creative, but the same happens when flying in survival. Waiting (floating) for a few minutes sooner or (often) later, lets the missing chunks appear. Usually takes 5-10 minutes.  When on a local game, the chunks appear slowly, but they do appear without pause.   This must be something simple, obvious, but I can't find the correct "search words" to find my way out. "Chunks not loading / rendering" didn't help. Browsing several forums neither.
