When you right click redstone ore with a block that cannot be placed, because a player or mob is standing there, it doesn’t play the hand animation. If you right click it with a block that can’t be placed, because it needs support (for example when trying to place a lantern without a block underneath or above it so that is would float), it also doesn’t play the hand animation. However if you try to place a block on it, when the position is occupied by a different block, the hand animation does play. Also affects the new deepslate redstone ore.
- Place a redstone ore
- Hold a solid block in your hand, for example stone
- Look at the redstone
- Stand close to the redstone ore, so that you can’t place the block, but still target the redstone ore
- Right click
→ The hand animation didn’t play, even though the redstone ore was activated and it emitted particles
