[1.8] Get Position of Block / IBlockState

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to get the position of the placed block out of the PlaceEvent. How is this possible?

 

@SubscribeEvent
public void onBlockPlace(PlaceEvent e) {
if(e.player == plugin.getPlayer()) {
	if(e.placedBlock == Blocks.redstone_torch.getDefaultState()) {
		BlockPos bp = ?;
	}
}
}

Did you try looking at the source code of the

BlockEvent.PlaceEvent

class or the fields/methods you can access on the instance you've been provided? Use the

BlockEvent#pos

field (in 1.8.9 and earlier) or

BlockEvent#getPos

method (in 1.9) to get the

BlockPos

of any

BlockEvent

subclass (e.g.

BlockEvent.PlaceEvent

).

 

An

IBlockState

represents a specific state of a

Block

. If you only care about the

Block

itself, use

IBlockState#getBlock

to get the

Block

and compare that instead of the state.

 

Are you sure you want to compare the player with

==

? A new instance is created every time a player respawns, so

plugin

(whatever it is) will have to maintain a reference to the current player instance. You may want to store and compare the player's

UUID

instead: use

Entity#getUniqueID

to get it and

Object#equals

to compare it.

 

Edit: Always specify the Minecraft version you're using in the thread title.

So I tried it without the player == player but not even this code works:

 

@SubscribeEvent
public void onBlockPlace(PlaceEvent e) {
plugin.sendMessage("ASDASDSd");
}

 

It seems like the Event doesn't get called once a player places a block. But all the other Events in this class get fired... I have a KeyInputEvent who works fine

Have you registered the handler on the right event bus? In 1.8 and earlier,

KeyInputEvent

is fired on the FML bus (

FMLCommonHandler#bus

) and

BlockEvent.PlaceEvent

is fired on the Forge bus (

MinecraftForge.EVENT_BUS

). In 1.8.8 and later, the FML bus has been merged with the Forge bus.
