Detect when block receives redstone power


Recommended Posts

I'm new to modding, and I'm working with Forge 1.16.3 in Eclipse. I made a custom block, and there's really not much to it, but I want to detect when the block receives redstone power. I've seen several old posts saying to check how vanilla blocks do this, or how the redstone diode works, but it's still pretty unclear how I would go about detecting redstone power. Would this be an event of some kind?

Your first thought when modding should always be:

"I wonder if any existing vanilla blocks have this feature. Maybe I should go look at their classes to see how they handle it..."

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.

There are a few working examples of redstone in this tutorial project

Redstone power has a few different things to understand, in particular weak power and strong power.  The link above has more explanation.
