[SOLVED] addInformation method on blocks?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys! I want to add some tooltips to my new blocks. I already did this on the Items with this method:

 

 

        @Override
        public void addInformation(ItemStack itemstack, EntityPlayer player, List list, boolean par4)
        {
                list.add("Some Information");
        }

 

 

 

The same method doesn't work for the blocks, of course. I searched the Block.java for similar methods, but I ended up with nothing. I know that adding tooltips to blocks IS possible, see Factorization. Now, how can I do this?

 

Thanks in advance

Hey!

 

I had a similar issue a few weeks ago, but discovered that if you register your block as if it had metadata, then in your ItemBlock.java you can add the item lore.

 

To register your block:

GameRegistry.registerBlock(BlockCustom, ItemBlockCustom.class, "YourMod.BlockCustom";

 

In your ItemBlockCustom.java file:

@Override
public void addInformation(ItemStack itemstack, EntityPlayer player, List list, boolean par4)
{
      list.add("Some Information");
}

 


 

I wrote this code from memory, so it may not be correct. It should point you on the right track though :P

 

Hope this helped!

Luis :D

Thanks, that was exactly right! (I don't really feel like making new classes only for Information but oh, well....) :)
