Custom Blocks

This is a startup script.

onEvent('block.registry', event => {
  event.create('test_block')
  	   .material('glass')
       .hardness(0.5)
       .displayName('Test Block') // No longer required in 1.18.2+
       .tagBlock('minecraft:mineable/shovel') // Make it mine faster using a shovel in 1.18.2+
  
  // Block with custom type (see below for list of types)
  event.create('test_block_slab', 'slab').material('glass').hardness(0.5)
})


The texture for this block has to be placed in kubejs/assets/kubejs/textures/block/test_block.png.
If you want a custom block model, you can create one in Blockbench and put it in kubejs/assets/kubejs/models/block/test_block.json.
