[1.16] Using setBlockState with tags


Recommended Posts

With the Minecraft setblock command (in game): we can do this: 

/setblock -4 4 -132 minecraft:player_head[rotation=0]{SkullOwner:{Name:"playerName"}}

. That will place a player head of the specified player with the specified rotation.


How can I accomplish this in my mod.


I know that I can set a block to be a player head using setBlockState and having 

setBlockState( BlockPos, Blocks.PLAYER_HEAD.getBlock().getDefaultState() 

I also know that we can add a rotation to it by adding

.with(BlockStateProperties.ROTATION_0_15, 3)


But I am lost on how I would go about setting the nbt data for skull owner SkullOwner. If anyone could point me in the right direction that would be great.
