I'm writing a Minecraft module using Minecraft Forge.
I can retrieve a Block object from the world, using
Block b = world.getBlock(x,y,z);
however, now that I have the block, how do I find out the metadata? If the block is a StoneSteps block, then I want to know it's orientation, which is held in the metadata.
Similarly, how do I set this value? I can create a new block simply enough:
Block b = Blocks.stone_stairs;
but again, how do I now set this block to a particular orientation? I know you can do this when creating an ItemStack, but in this case, I want a Block object that can be passed on to
There does not appear to be any way I can find to get and set this value.
You can use
world.getBlockState(BlockPos); for Minecraft 1.8 or
getBlockMetadata(int x, int y, int z); for Minecraft 1.7.10.
