(SOLVED) [1.14.4] Check if it's raining on a Block

I need to check if it's raining on a particular block. The isRaining() method checks if it's raining globally, the isRainingAt() method just doesn't seem to work, it always returns false. 

 

    @SubscribeEvent
    public void EntityPlaceEvent(EntityPlaceEvent event) {
    	
    	World world = event.getEntity().world;
    	BlockPos blockpos = event.getPos();
    	BlockState blockstate = world.getBlockState(blockpos);
    	
    	if (event.getState().getBlock() == Blocks.CAMPFIRE && world.isRainingAt(blockpos)) {
    		
    		world.setBlockState(blockpos, blockstate.with(CampfireBlock.LIT, false));
    	}
    }

 I went to look at the isRainingAt() method, and it does some other checks which is why its returning false. However, if you check what biome you are in and if it can rain in the first place, then you can get the expected result:

 

world.getBiome(position).getPrecipitation() == Biome.RainType.RAIN && world.isRaining()

 

This just checks the biome the positions in, and see if it can actually rain. If so, then check if its raining. If both are true, it must be raining at that position. If the biome doesn't allow to rain, and it is raining (as rain happens everywhere), then it'll return false (ex. in a desert).

Don't forget that blocks that are underground still need to check to see if they can see the sky.

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.

Actually not so unassigned, this doesn't account for covering. If a block is a under a tree for example, it won't get rain on it, but according to these checks it is raining.
