"ParticleData cannot be cast to RedstoneParticleData"


Recommended Posts

Alright, so I decided to add particles to my Rube Ore (basically Redstone Ore but 24 /7) and while testing the particle data, I get these errors (same as title) about it being cast to RedstoneParticleData, even though I don't see it anywhere. It says the errors in the Ore Block itself, so heres the code for that: 

package com.pickleface.ruby.blocks;

import com.pickleface.ruby.particles.RubyParticleData;
import net.minecraft.block.Block;
import net.minecraft.block.BlockState;
import net.minecraft.block.OreBlock;
import net.minecraft.block.SoundType;
import net.minecraft.block.material.Material;
import net.minecraft.util.Direction;
import net.minecraft.util.math.BlockPos;
import net.minecraft.world.IWorldReader;
import net.minecraft.world.World;
import net.minecraftforge.api.distmarker.Dist;
import net.minecraftforge.api.distmarker.OnlyIn;
import net.minecraftforge.common.ToolType;

import java.util.Random;

public class RubyOre extends OreBlock {
    public RubyOre() {
                .hardnessAndResistance(3.0f, 3.5f)
    public int getExpDrop(BlockState state, IWorldReader reader, BlockPos pos, int fortune, int silktouch) {
        return 1;

    public boolean ticksRandomly(BlockState state) {
        return true;

    public void animateTick(BlockState stateIn, World worldIn, BlockPos pos, Random rand) {
            spawnParticles(worldIn, pos);

    private static void spawnParticles(World world, BlockPos worldIn) {
        Random random = world.rand;

        for(Direction direction : Direction.values()) {
            BlockPos blockpos = worldIn.offset(direction);
            if (!world.getBlockState(blockpos).isOpaqueCube(world, blockpos)) {
                Direction.Axis direction$axis = direction.getAxis();

                double d1 = direction$axis == Direction.Axis.X ? 0.5D + 0.5625D * (double)direction.getXOffset() : (double)random.nextFloat();
                double d2 = direction$axis == Direction.Axis.Y ? 0.5D + 0.5625D * (double)direction.getYOffset() : (double)random.nextFloat();
                double d3 = direction$axis == Direction.Axis.Z ? 0.5D + 0.5625D * (double)direction.getZOffset() : (double)random.nextFloat();
                world.addParticle(new RubyParticleData(1.0F, 0F, 0F, 1.0F), (double)worldIn.getX() + d1, (double)worldIn.getY() + d2, (double)worldIn.getZ() + d3, 0.0D, 0.0D, 0.0D);


and if its needed, heres the particle data:

package com.pickleface.ruby.particles;

import com.mojang.brigadier.StringReader;
import com.mojang.brigadier.exceptions.CommandSyntaxException;
import com.mojang.serialization.Codec;
import com.mojang.serialization.codecs.RecordCodecBuilder;
import java.util.Locale;
import net.minecraft.network.PacketBuffer;
import net.minecraft.particles.*;
import net.minecraft.util.math.MathHelper;
import net.minecraft.util.registry.Registry;
import net.minecraftforge.api.distmarker.Dist;
import net.minecraftforge.api.distmarker.OnlyIn;

public class RubyParticleData implements IParticleData {
    public static final Codec<RubyParticleData> field_239802_b_ = RecordCodecBuilder.create((p_239803_0_) -> {
        return p_239803_0_.group(Codec.FLOAT.fieldOf("r").forGetter((p_239807_0_) -> {
            return p_239807_0_.red;
        }), Codec.FLOAT.fieldOf("g").forGetter((p_239806_0_) -> {
            return p_239806_0_.green;
        }), Codec.FLOAT.fieldOf("b").forGetter((p_239805_0_) -> {
            return p_239805_0_.blue;
        }), Codec.FLOAT.fieldOf("scale").forGetter((p_239804_0_) -> {
            return p_239804_0_.alpha;
        })).apply(p_239803_0_, RubyParticleData::new);
    private final float red;
    private final float green;
    private final float blue;
    private final float alpha;

    public RubyParticleData(float red, float green, float blue, float alpha) {
        this.red = red;
        this.green = green;
        this.blue = blue;
        this.alpha = MathHelper.clamp(alpha, 0.01F, 4.0F);

    public void write(PacketBuffer buffer) {

    public String getParameters() {
        return String.format(Locale.ROOT, "%s %.2f %.2f %.2f %.2f", Registry.PARTICLE_TYPE.getKey(this.getType()), this.red, this.green, this.blue, this.alpha);

    public ParticleType<RedstoneParticleData> getType() {
        return ParticleTypes.DUST;

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

Have some lorem ispum.
