[SOLVED] [1.16.1] Block harvest level and tool is ignored.


Recommended Posts


I've set my mod block harvest tool to pickaxe and level to 1, which should cause it to drop nothing when mined with a wooden pickaxe. However this not only does not take place, but I'm even able to harvest the block by mining it with a bare hand.


Code details

Block registration:

public static final RegistryObject<Block> COPPER_ORE = BLOCKS.register("copper_ore", MetalOreBlock::new);

MetalOreBlock class:

package ...

import ...

public class MetalOreBlock extends Block {

    public MetalOreBlock() {
                .hardnessAndResistance(3.0f, 3.0f)


How to fix it?

Thanks in advance!

I am experiencing an identical problem with the exact line of code you posted above 

 and I was wondering if you could be more specific with how you implemented the solution (mentioned in your latest comment) to the problem...

My block class look like this:

package ...

import net.minecraft.block.Block;
import net.minecraft.block.SoundType;
import net.minecraft.block.material.Material;
import net.minecraftforge.common.ToolType;

public class MetalBlock extends Block {

    public MetalBlock() {
                .hardnessAndResistance(5.0f, 6.0f)
                .setRequiresTool()  //or func_235861_h_()

and I'm mining it with vanilla tools. I haven't created any tools in my mod yet to test it out. Are you experiencing the problem with vanilla tools?

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.

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

I'm using forge MDK version 32.0.74.


I  haven't gotten to trying my hand at making custom tools yet. So I am also mining it with vanilla tools to test it out...


i am currently testing out the solution:
