Alright so its not a Fabric specific issue, it does a similar thing on Forge, doesnt flatten the file but it still messes with the formatting missing a } at the end

Hi, im trying to save blocks in area of 10 blocks and save them into a .json file is this possible?

Do you have an update coming for the 1.20.1 snapshot or will you be waiting for the 2023.3 full release?

I would like them to add a block that deletes the files since I noticed that it does not have a procedure that does and I had to do it manually with (custom code snippet) when they update it I would like them to add that.


I don't add it on purpose because if someone uses the block incorrectly because the user doesn't know how everything works or if the person wants to delete files from the players' computers, I don't want to help this. So I just let users that need it to do it themself.
