[1.10.2] onBlockActivated while sneaking


Recommended Posts

In 1.8.9, I had a container that, when shift-right-clicked, would drop the item version of the block as if it had been broken and save the inventory. I achieved this by using the onBlockActivated method. In 1.10.2, this no longer works, as it seems onBlockActivated is no longer called when shift-right-clicking the block. What changed? How can I get this to behave like it used to?


Here's my onBlockActivated method, if it matters:


public boolean onBlockActivated(World world, BlockPos pos, IBlockState state, EntityPlayer player, EnumHand hand, ItemStack heldItem, EnumFacing side, float hitX, float hitY, float hitZ)
	if (!world.isRemote)
		if (player.isSneaking())
			PrimalTileEntitySmall te = world.getTileEntity(pos) instanceof PrimalTileEntitySmall ? (PrimalTileEntitySmall) world.getTileEntity(pos) : null;
			dropContainerWithInventory(world, pos, state, player, te);
		} else
			player.openGui(Primalcraft.instance, PrimalGuiHandler.GUI_BASKET_SMALL, world, pos.getX(), pos.getY(), pos.getZ());
	return true;

The idea is that it's a small block that the player should just be able to "pick up" whenever they want, without "breaking" it. But I also want them to be able to break it, if they really want to destroy the block. It was definitely working before, but I remember now that I had to tweak some of the other methods as well. I wonder what changed. I guess I'll try PlayerIntractEvent.

To get it to work even while holding something in the left hand, I had to use PlayerInteractEvent. It seems to be working smoothly now. In PlayerInteract, I check if the player is sneaking and if the target is an instance of my container. Then I do event.setUseBlock(Result.ALLOW) which calls onBlockActivated.
