Help with block directional placement
Wed, 11/16/2016 - 00:26 (edited)

Hello. I was wondering if there was a built in feature in MCreator to set which direction a block is facing when it is placed. Hence if the player places a block it will face towards them when the block is placed. If there isn't a predefined feature, does anyone know of an easy way to do this? It's hindering me from being able to make a nice mod because it bothers my OCD that I can't figure it out :( any help is appreciated greatly :)

There are a few reliable tutorials on the forums that cover this, just search google and type like "MCreator how to place block directions" and you sohuld get results that lead you to a tutorial on how to do it.

I looked around and most

I looked around and most methods require an extreme amount of coding. I personally am not that great and personally coding myself. I was hoping maybe there was a method to where you could put a line of code in a "On placed" method when creating a block.

Thank you, I believe this

Thank you, I believe this should work :) hopefully MCreator adds a feature to allow the block to face the player like this, so that people like me who don't have much programming experience won't have to code it out. However you made a good tutorial and I appreciate it :)
