So im working on making energy into my mod i have a energy variable  set as numbers,

i have made the solar panel block and had a dabble in procedures which is new to me as i have dabbled in java coding but i thought id give MCreator a go but i cant seem to get this to work where the light level and seeing the sky generates the energy value. i think i set it up wrong? can some one help please :)

Check light level at location y + 1 so you check the above block, not light inside block.

This is basic maths man.
The NBT tag "energy" starts at 0 when u place the block. You want the energy NBT tag to set to energy^10 but 0^10 = 0 so yes it doesn't work because u suck at maths.
