but i don't know how i have to do that and in what file i have to put that





this is a part code from the oredictionary file i hope you can help me


public class OreDictionary


    private static boolean hasInit = false;

    private static int maxID = 0;

    private static HashMap<String, Integer> oreIDs = new HashMap<String, Integer>();

    private static HashMap<Integer, ArrayList<ItemStack>> oreStacks = new HashMap<Integer, ArrayList<ItemStack>>();


    static {




    public static void initVanillaEntries()


        if (!hasInit)


            registerOre("logWood",    new ItemStack(Block.wood, 1, -1));

            registerOre("plankWood",  new ItemStack(Block.planks, 1, -1));

            registerOre("slabWood",    new ItemStack(Block.woodSingleSlab, 1, -1));

            registerOre("stairWood",  Block.stairCompactPlanks);

            registerOre("stairWood",  Block.stairsWoodBirch);

            registerOre("stairWood",  Block.stairsWoodJungle);

            registerOre("stairWood",  Block.stairsWoodSpruce);

            registerOre("stickWood",  Item.stick);

            registerOre("treeSapling", new ItemStack(Block.sapling, 1, -1));

            registerOre("treeLeaves",  new ItemStack(Block.leaves, 1, -1));



        // Build our list of items to replace with ore tags

        Map<ItemStack, String> replacements = new HashMap<ItemStack, String>();

        replacements.put(new ItemStack(Block.planks, 1, -1), "plankWood");

        replacements.put(new ItemStack(Item.stick), "stickWood");


        // Register dyes

        String[] dyes =




















        for(int i = 0; i < 16; i++)


            ItemStack dye = new ItemStack(Item.dyePowder, 1, i);

            if (!hasInit)


                registerOre(dyes, dye);


            replacements.put(dye, dyes);


        hasInit = true;


        ItemStack[] replaceStacks = replacements.keySet().toArray(new ItemStack[0]);

If you want the resulting item to be bone meal / lapis

Just set up a standard crafting with the result being  ItemStack(Item.dyePowder, 1, 15) / ItemStack(Item.dyePowder, 1, 4)


But if you want the result to be a white / blue dye alternative

Create your item and recipe like normal, then register your item to the ore dictionary


OreDictionary.registerOre("dyeWhite", new ItemStack(YOUR_ITEM_ID, 1, WHITE_META));

OreDictionary.registerOre("dyeBlue", new ItemStack(YOUR_ITEM_ID, 1, BLUE_META));


Any mod that checks the ore dictionary for dye can use your item.
