[1.15.2] Getting a block's color for minimap


Recommended Posts

I looked at how a filled map item gets block colors, tried something similar, but I've ran into a couple of issues.

My code:

private MaterialColor getBlockColorAt(int x, int z) {
	Chunk chunk = client.world.getChunkAt(new BlockPos(x, 0, z));
	int y = chunk.getTopBlockY(Heightmap.Type.WORLD_SURFACE, x, z);
	BlockPos pos = new BlockPos(x, y, z);
	return client.world.getBlockState(pos).getMaterialColor(client.world.getBlockReader(chunk.getPos().x, chunk.getPos().z), pos);

BlockState#getMaterialColor is deprecated and I can't find any alternatives to use

y always returns -1


What am I doing wrong? What do I need to do to get a block's color at a specific position?

based on FilledMapItem::updateMapData and BlockColors::getColorOrMaterialColor, I think you should just use World and not mess with Chunk.

It's ok to call BlockState::getMaterialColor.  Don't worry too much about the @deprecated, they are sprinkled throughout the code and usually don't actually mean anything relevant (sometimes they are suggesting a more-flexible alternative but it's nearly always fine to ignore them.)

Mojang uses these to signify that these methods shouldn't be called, but overriding them is fine.

In the case of BlockState#getMaterialColor however it seems to be a wrongly ported Forge patch.

Yeah I think you're right about BlockState#getMaterialColor.   But I had assumed that the @deprecated are put there by MCP not by Mojang?  Do annotations survive the obfuscation process? (Given that I've never seen any vanilla code using reflection)
