TorchBlock and WallTorchBlock


Recommended Posts

I have a fairly simple question. In later versions of Forge -- 1.13 and 1.14 -- BlockTorch seems to have become separated into TorchBlock and WallTorchBlock. The former seems to be a vanilla torch placed on top of a block; the latter, a torch which is placed against a block. How would I create an item which places either a TorchBlock or WallTorchBlock depending on how it's placed? I've tried creating an item from a TorchBlock, which does place a block on a wall, but not beside it. Out of curiosity, I tried doing the same with a WallTorchBlock, but doing this simply crashes the game once the item is summoned. Is there an established way of handling this? A pointer to the part of the Minecraft source that handles this would also be useful -- I'm somewhat new to Java, and so I've been having trouble searching within my IDE.
