Place a chest with stuff in it using blockstates


Recommended Posts

I am using


to place blocks in the world. I want to place down a chest that has stuff in it into the world.


So far, I have found out how to place down the empty chest using this code:

world.setBlockState(pos, Blocks.chest.getDefaultState().withProperty(BlockChest.FACING, EnumFacing.NORTH));

However, I understand that I need to edit the tile entity to put stuff in the chest. But I cannot find any way to access the tile entity through the block state. I need to edit it through the block state because


will override what I put in the chest. Is there any way to get the block state without overriding chest contents, or add chest contents through the block state?
