[1.12.2] Block rotating doesn't work


Recommended Posts


I have a problem with my End Rod like block and its facing when I'm placing it.


The difference between like a piston placing behavior and the end rod one is, that it doens't matter which way you're facing, but instead what side of a block you're aiming.

I looked at the End Rod block and tried to copy it's code and adapt it to my block, but it doesn't really work. Every time I place the block it's just upside down, whether I aim at the top side of a block or not.


When I place my block with the /setblock command and rotate it that way, everything, like the hitbox and model is fine.


This is my block code:

package com.schauweg.kruscht.objects.blocks;

import com.schauweg.kruscht.init.BlockInit;
import net.minecraft.block.SoundType;
import net.minecraft.block.material.Material;
import net.minecraft.block.properties.IProperty;
import net.minecraft.block.properties.PropertyDirection;
import net.minecraft.block.state.BlockStateContainer;
import net.minecraft.block.state.IBlockState;
import net.minecraft.entity.EntityLivingBase;
import net.minecraft.util.*;
import net.minecraft.util.math.AxisAlignedBB;
import net.minecraft.util.math.BlockPos;
import net.minecraft.world.IBlockAccess;
import net.minecraft.world.World;

import java.util.Random;

public class BlockBlazeRod extends BlockBase
    public static final PropertyDirection FACING = PropertyDirection.create("facing");

    public static final AxisAlignedBB BLAZE_ROD_VERTICAL_AABB = new AxisAlignedBB(0.375D, 0.0D, 0.375D, 0.625D, 1.0D, 0.625D);
    public static final AxisAlignedBB BLAZE_ROD_NS_AABB = new AxisAlignedBB(0.375D, 0.375D, 0.0D, 0.625D, 0.625D, 1.0D);
    public static final AxisAlignedBB BLAZE_ROD_EW_AABB = new AxisAlignedBB(0.0D, 0.375D, 0.375D, 1.0D, 0.625D, 0.625D);

    public BlockBlazeRod(String name, Material material)
        super(name, material);
        setHarvestLevel("axe", 0);
        this.setDefaultState(this.blockState.getBaseState().withProperty(FACING, EnumFacing.UP));

    public IBlockState withRotation(IBlockState state, Rotation rot)
    { return state.withProperty(FACING, rot.rotate((EnumFacing)state.getValue(FACING))); }

    public IBlockState withMirror(IBlockState state, Mirror mirrorIn)
    { return state.withProperty(FACING, mirrorIn.mirror((EnumFacing)state.getValue(FACING))); }

    public AxisAlignedBB getBoundingBox(IBlockState state, IBlockAccess source, BlockPos pos)
        switch (((EnumFacing)state.getValue(FACING)).getAxis())
            case X:
                return BLAZE_ROD_EW_AABB;

            case Z:
                return BLAZE_ROD_NS_AABB;

            case Y:
                return BLAZE_ROD_VERTICAL_AABB;

    public boolean isOpaqueCube(IBlockState state)
    { return false; }

    public boolean isFullCube(IBlockState state)
    { return false; }

    public boolean canPlaceBlockAt(World worldIn, BlockPos pos)
    { return true; }

    public IBlockState onBlockPlaced(World worldIn, BlockPos pos, EnumFacing facing, float hitX, float hitY, float hitZ, int meta, EntityLivingBase placer)
        IBlockState iblockstate = worldIn.getBlockState(pos.offset(facing.getOpposite()));

        if (iblockstate.getBlock() == BlockInit.BLOCK_BLAZE_ROD)
            EnumFacing enumfacing = (EnumFacing)iblockstate.getValue(FACING);

            if (enumfacing == facing)
                return this.getDefaultState().withProperty(FACING, facing.getOpposite());

        return this.getDefaultState().withProperty(FACING, facing);

    public void randomDisplayTick(IBlockState stateIn, World worldIn, BlockPos pos, Random rand)
        EnumFacing enumfacing = (EnumFacing)stateIn.getValue(FACING);
        double d0 = (double)pos.getX() + 0.55D - (double)(rand.nextFloat() * 0.1F);
        double d1 = (double)pos.getY() + 0.55D - (double)(rand.nextFloat() * 0.1F);
        double d2 = (double)pos.getZ() + 0.55D - (double)(rand.nextFloat() * 0.1F);
        double d3 = (double)(0.4F - (rand.nextFloat() + rand.nextFloat()) * 0.4F);

        if (rand.nextInt(5) == 0)
            worldIn.spawnParticle(EnumParticleTypes.FLAME, d0 + (double)enumfacing.getFrontOffsetX() * d3, d1 + (double)enumfacing.getFrontOffsetY() * d3, d2 + (double)enumfacing.getFrontOffsetZ() * d3, rand.nextGaussian() * 0.005D, rand.nextGaussian() * 0.005D, rand.nextGaussian() * 0.005D);

    public BlockRenderLayer getBlockLayer()
        return BlockRenderLayer.CUTOUT;

    public IBlockState getStateFromMeta(int meta)
        IBlockState iblockstate = this.getDefaultState();
        iblockstate = iblockstate.withProperty(FACING, EnumFacing.getFront(meta));
        return iblockstate;

    public int getMetaFromState(IBlockState state)
    { return ((EnumFacing)state.getValue(FACING)).getIndex(); }

    protected BlockStateContainer createBlockState()
    { return new BlockStateContainer(this, new IProperty[] {FACING}); }


This is my BlockBase code:

package com.schauweg.kruscht.objects.blocks;

import com.schauweg.kruscht.Main;
import com.schauweg.kruscht.init.BlockInit;
import com.schauweg.kruscht.init.ItemInit;
import com.schauweg.kruscht.util.IHasModel;
import net.minecraft.block.Block;
import net.minecraft.block.material.Material;
import net.minecraft.item.Item;
import net.minecraft.item.ItemBlock;

public class BlockBase extends Block implements IHasModel

    public BlockBase(String name, Material material)

        ItemInit.ITEMS.add(new ItemBlock(this).setRegistryName(this.getRegistryName()));

    public void registerModels()
    { Main.proxy.registerItemRenderer(Item.getItemFromBlock(this), 0, "inventory"); }


This is the the End Rod Block code:

[Edit: Removed copyrighted code - diesieben07]


and finally this is their BlockDirectional code:

package net.minecraft.block;

import net.minecraft.block.material.Material;
import net.minecraft.block.properties.PropertyDirection;

public abstract class BlockDirectional extends Block
    public static final PropertyDirection FACING = PropertyDirection.create("facing");

    protected BlockDirectional(Material materialIn)


Hopefully someone can help me. :D

Well the BlockDirectional isn't being used by your block classes, so what did you expect?

Apparently I'm a complete and utter jerk and come to this forum just like to make fun of people, be confrontational, and make your personal life miserable.  If you think this is the case, JUST REPORT ME.  Otherwise you're just going to get reported when you reply to my posts and point it out, because odds are, I was trying to be nice.


Exception: If you do not understand Java, I WILL NOT HELP YOU and your thread will get locked.


DO NOT PM ME WITH PROBLEMS. No help will be given.
