Add functionality to vanilla blocks


Yamahari

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to add functionality to vanilla blocks, e.g. I am working on a mod that adds weeds that destroy your crops. I want there to be a random chance that everytime a crop grows it can turn into weeds that spread to nearby crops over time. For that I would have to change the tick function of existing block classes. Is there an easy way to do this?

I don't know if its been added to the 1.13 codebase yet, but I added it to 1.12 a while back, so it should get moved forward soon, if it hasn't been already.

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.

Yes! That worked just fine. I subscribed to CropGrowEvent.Post and now my weeds spread like wildfire x) 

The problem now arises at a different point though. I want to change the way bonemeal works, but I can't edit the ItemBoneMeal class. Would it be best to make my own custom BoneMeal class and place that in all the recipes where normal bonemeal would needed? Or is there a way simpler way I am missing.

If you need to modify the behavior of a vanilla Item/Block, you could also create your own version of the Item/Block and replace the vanilla one with it.

This might be useful if there is no event for the behavior you would like to modify.

An example of this is done in FastWorkbench, where the author created a new crafting table and replaced the vanilla one with it.

1. Do not follow tutorials on YouTube, especially TechnoVision (previously called Loremaster) and HarryTalks, due to their promotion of bad practice and usage of outdated code.

2. Always post your code.

3. Never copy and paste code. You won't learn anything from doing that.

4.

5. Learn to use your IDE, especially the debugger.

Support & Bug Reports:

1. Read the EAQ before asking for help. Remember to provide the appropriate log(s).

2. Versions below 1.11 are no longer supported due to their age. Update to a modern version of Minecraft to receive support.

You might also want to check out my farming mod:

https://github.com/Draco18s/ReasonableRealism/tree/1.12.1/src/main/java/com/draco18s/farming

Code is still 1.12, but everything should still be possible. I did weeds and bonemeal and hoe modifications too.

Is replacing vanilla blocks and items considered good practice?

I like the way you did the spreading of weeds ! But my plan with bonemeal is to make it impossible to use on crops. You now have to bonemeal the ground before you can plant anything, basically adding a nutrition property to farmland that gets removed once a crop on it has grown to max age.

It seems like you can no longer do that in 1.13.2, I get runtime exception with the message "Illegal replacement of vanilla ... "

Its been a long time, but I was pretty sure I messed with bonemeal use too, but I can't find it now.

You should still be able to hook into the Bonemeal events and cancel it, preventing their usage on crops.

Replacing vanilla blocks is sometimes necessary if there's no event that will let you achieve the behavior you want. It can decrease mod compatibility if other mods are modifying or replacing the same block as you, so try to use events first.
