Code a block to harvest blocks around it and store harvests maybe replant

Recommended Posts

Hi all. My next goal is to make a block that I can place in a field of crops.

It will periodically check the surrounding blocks for fully matured plants and harvest them.

It will collect the plants and the seed and also replant the soil.

 

I have no idea where to start here. I have a basic mod with working ore blocks and ingots.

I can use the ores to build recipes but once I have my custom AutoFarmer I don't know how to use timers or access surrounding blocks. Any tutorial suggestions or videos I should check out to help get started?

 

Also yes I have been googling the crap out of this topic for awhile to no avail.

 

Thanks

since you're asking about automatic digger/drill/excavator/farmer, let me give you a piece of advice (even if you know it, it could be useful to others)...

 

there are right ways to do it and wrong ways to do it.

 

wrong ways... let's take gravel block for example (doesn't matter could have been something else)... one wrong thing to do is get a block instance from the world instance and ask the block "what do you drop?". now, when you read that, it doesn't sound wrong but it's wrong. the gravel block object would answer that it drops 1 gravel block and depending on a dice roll and the fortune level, zero or more flint items. but what if a player has a mod that replaces flint pieces with smaller flint chips as a drop? or a mod that adds copper pieces as a possible drop? or what if some mod wants to prevent breaking of blocks under some conditions? you are supposed to play nice with all of these cases.

 

right ways... one way to do it would be to invoke forge events (just as these calls are inserted into vanilla code) and if the event chain says that it's ok that you break a block, you take a list of items from it. another way would be to create a FakePlayer (yes, that's a thing) and tell it to break blocks at given coordinates, one by one. that way, you can give the FakePlayer an iron pickaxe if your machine has an iron drill, etc. and you get correct times for breaking block with whatever tool you gave him.

 

edit: to clarify, doesn't matter if it's a mining machine or a farming machine; same principle applies.

    • Hi, you guys are probably all tired of having to deal with the same topic everytimes. I want to play mods, but forge doesn't want me to. And after days of videos and forum, i have no choices to ask before giving up.. The classic Error code 1 ( here's my debug.log : https://paste.ee/p/0WMSP). I tryed everything. The Forge version fit the mod version. I have java jdk 17 and the path to java is set. My mods folder is empty. My Minecraft luncher path has been changed. Java, Minecraft and Forged has been reinstalled 3 times. I tryed with the curseforge luncher. The only thing i didn't do, and I think it might be the problem, is updating my graphic card drivers. For the only reason that my computer is an Ace Magician ( Tiny pc) that don't have a graphic card. But then I went with Fabric. And it works just fine.  Anyway I can't find anything so thank you for your help. Sorry for my english if there's any mistake. Razziel.  
    • I am trying to make my own modpack and at the moment it crashes before I can get to the main menu. I have been trying to google and figure it out myself but would really appreciate some help. I've been using CurseForge to install mod and think I've gotten all the dependencies but I'm not 100% sure. I hope I got the paste.ee thing right Thanks in advance! https://paste.ee/p/NXdSO
