[1.12.2] Making a Tool that Modifies block drops when used (New to Modded)


Recommended Posts

I'm pretty new to Minecraft Modding, but I've been doing well so far (I've got blocks, items, creative tabs, foods, recipes, down pat).

I'm at the stage where I want to start doing some more advanced stuff, starting with a custom tool.

My question is: How can I make a tool (called whatever, let's say a sickle), that upon breaking grass, increases the chance of seeds dropping.

Add this to your class that has @Mod.EventBusSubscriber

	public static void onHarvest(BlockEvent.HarvestDropsEvent event)
		if (event.getHarvester() != null)
			List<ItemStack> drops = event.getDrops();
			if(drops!=null && drops.size()>0) {
				BlockPos pos = event.getPos();
				IBlockState blockstate = event.getWorld().getBlockState(pos);
				Block block = blockstate.getBlock();
				if(block instanceof BlockGrass) {
					drops.add(new ItemStack(Item.REGISTRY.getObject(new ResourceLocation("minecraft", "wheat_seeds"))));

When asking support remember to include all relevant log files (logs are found in .minecraft/logs/), code if applicable and screenshots if possible.

Only download mods from trusted sites like CurseForge (minecraft.curseforge.com). A list of bad sites can be found here, with more information available at stopmodreposts.org

Please don't just vomit code into your post saying "just copy this". This helps nobody, especially someone who explicitly said they are new to modding.

Also, your code is terrible.


@intipablo Read the documentation on events. Then you can use HarvestDropsEvent to change the drops of a block.


Thanks for the help. Much appreciated!
