Need help placing a fluid on the side of blocks.

Backstory: I'm currently making an SCP mod. When creating a fluid, Mcreator automatically creates the bucket if wanted. The name of the bucket will be the same same as the fluid element id. This meant that the fluid which I had named "SCP-006" would be displayed as either "S C P006" or "Scp006". This small insignificant detail bothered me enough to make an item with the correct name. The item is a bucket, and the texture is already done, and my issue comes into place with the procedure blocks.

About my problem: Due to the bucket being a custom item, I can't seem to figure out how to properly place my liquid on the side of a block that is looked at, as the "place [ ] at x, y, z" procedure seems to instead replace the block. I believe I would have to use the "block direction" procedure block, however, I have no experience using it. In summary: I need to make an item that when right-clicked on any block, it places a liquid on the side of the block, and I don't know how to do this with procedure blocks. Thanks for your time.

Nevermind, found out how to do this by myself. I used the trigger face procedure block alongside the place block procedure. and did this for every block face direction.

Hello Cru8,

 

Is possible to make the fluid not on every block face direction but only the selected face with right clicking ?

 

Thanks
