I saw this MapColor thing alot in minecraft code, but i never figured out what it does exactly.

So what is it used for and when?

What does it do? Should i use it?

 

I looked into that class, i know it has something to do with colors.

I see that some blocks use this, but it looks like it doesn't do anything, yet it is there!

I wonder if someone can tell me

I might be wrong as I'm getting back into modding again, however someone will correct me if I am.

 

If you're looking at blocks the map color would be what will be used to put a "pixel" on a map (craft a map in MC and watch it render the area)

As the name suggests, its primary use is to determine the colour of a block when it's displayed on maps.

 

It's also used in two other places:

  • To colour dust particles (
    ParticleFallingDust

    /

    EnumParticleTypes.FALLING_DUST

    ) if the

    Block

    doesn't have an

    IBlockColor

    registered and doesn't extend

    BlockFalling

    .

  • To colour banner textures (
    BannerTextures

    /

    LayeredColorMaskTexture

    ) based on the

    EnumDyeColor

    .

Aha good to know. What if you don't define 1? Is there a default or will my blocks not be shown on the map?

 

If you use the

Block(Material)

constructor, the

Material

's

MapColor

will be used.
