  1. Hi there!

    The plugin listens on player right clicks. It then places a torch on the block you right clicked. Simple.


    Was wondering if there's a simple method to check wheter or not a torch can be placed on a block. Per exemple, how do I know I can't place a torch on snow, or on a bed... Is there anything existing?

    How to I attach a torch to a block face. With event.getClickedBlock() I get the block itself. With event.getClickedFace I get a BlockFace face of the block I clicked. Now, how do I attach a torch on that particular face?

    Thanks for your replies.

    Get the block on that BlockFace and use setType(Material.TORCH).
  3. Thanks for the answer. Did not yet figure out how to get the block attached to that blockface...

    And about the second question?
  4. Code:
    To get the block relative to that block face.

    Also, the attachment direction of a torch it's its data value.

    But I guess you can use something like this...
    Torch t = new Torch(); // just used to calculate the data value for the block
    And if it doesn't work try other combinations...
