Fix Version/s: None
Container blocks, unlike any other block entity, can contain items. This is linked to nbt data, named also Items, that updates when items are added/removed (e.g. the Chest).
So, I put it to the test to see if some block entities had the same update effect after being set with the same block state, and I discovered that certain block entities (such as containers) replace their content only in their nbt (unless they are linked to these items) and could possibly cause issues.
One example can be replicated with the Campfire during its cooking state; replacing it with identical state values result in the appearance of an error message although the food items in its nbt have been updated, the food items are still visible (which pauses the cooking process)... Here are some experiments to prove my point on this issue:
- Replacing any interactable container with the same state values removes its contents completely (despite the error message showing up). This applies to:
- Shulker boxes
- Blast furnaces
- Replacing a Lectern (wielding a book) with the same state values however, doesn't lose its content but results in the book GUI to open and instantly close.
- Replacing a Campfire with another (during its cooking process) comes back with the error message (if all its states match the previous), resulting in the cooking process to pause with its food items still displayed.
EDIT: Related issue in MC-31100
- Place a campfire containing raw food items
- Replace that block with the same state values using the command:
(now occurs the error message)
- Execute the command:
