[1.10.2] Using PropertyEnum in a forge BlockState file?


AnZaNaMa

Recommended Posts

All of the tutorials and such I've been finding on the internet seem to be from 1.8 before there were forge blockstate files (oh the dark days) so I can't seem to figure out the format for using a PropertyEnum in the variants section of the file. The forge docs show using an integer and a boolean, but not propertyenum, so I was thinking posting here would help me figure out how to do this as well as maybe whoever maintains the forge docs might see it and add that in there to make life just a little bit easier on people in the future. Also if not this gives people something to reference if they have the same question as me. So I'm not sure if I've actually clearly stated my question or I've just been rambling on this whole time. Thus, I'll put it here again.

 

I have a block that uses a custom PropertyEnum (it's for colors, but I prefer to use a different color scheme from the 16 vanilla options, so I made my own) and I want to make variants to change the texture based on that enum. How do I format it in the variants section of the blockstate file?

- Just because things are the way they are doesn't mean they can't be the way you want them to be. Unless they're aspen trees. You can tell they're aspens 'cause the way they are.

Apparently I'm a complete and utter jerk and come to this forum just like to make fun of people, be confrontational, and make your personal life miserable.  If you think this is the case, JUST REPORT ME.  Otherwise you're just going to get reported when you reply to my posts and point it out, because odds are, I was trying to be nice.

DO NOT PM ME WITH PROBLEMS. No help will be given.

You use a

PropertyEnum

just like you would any other

IProperty

. The string returned by

IStringSerializable#getName

is used as the value in the blockstates file (whichever format you're using).

 

I have a block with two enum properties (for the colour and facing) here: code, blockstates file.

 

I have a block with a single custom enum property here: code, blockstates file.

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.

Wow I should have just tried that :P

 

Thanks for the help though. Much appreciated!
