Making a block that behaves like glow lichen/vines
Mon, 05/30/2022 - 19:36 (edited)

I apologize if this has been answered elsewhere, but I was unable to find what I was looking for (I found one other forum post, but nobody there seemed to really know how to do this either).

The main issue I am having is in creating a block that can be placed on the ceiling/wall/floor in the same 1 block space.  I've tried fiddling around but I don't even know where to begin if this is even possible through MCreator.  Is this just something that isn't possible with the tools provided by the software?

Would I need to create multiple blocks, one for each possible configuration?

Thank you.

 

EDIT: I don't want to add more comments than necessary, so I wanted to ask: if I want to try adding blockstates to my mod, am I able to just go into the source code and mess around with it like any other Forge mod, or are MCreator mods structured differently where this wouldn't be possible?

Set your recently added block's rotation (can be found in visual tab) to D/U/N/S/W/E from block face ... no additional block model needed.

That would not do what I want it to do.  I am referring to the block being able to be places on multiple faces of the same 1 block space.  From what I understand, this would require blockstates (glow lichen has up, down, north, south, east, and west all possible within the same block, for instance) which MCreator does not seem to have support for.  Would it in theory be possible for me to go into the code and add it manually if I were to figure out how to do that, or would that require coding a mod from scratch (which is way out of my depth)?

Basically, I was wondering if it would be possible to be able to place multiple of the same block in a once block space and have them merge into one block, like when you have vines both on the ceiling and wall of an area at the same time.  Again, I think I've seen from looking around a bit that this just isn't a supported feature of MCreator due to its complexity

I thought you were looking for this ...

Maybe in the future I could try to figure out how to make the tree type custom vine with MCreator. Have not tried it, yet.
