How do you add a lore to a custom block or item (lore being the description line(s) that appear under the title when you hover over it in the inventory view)? In the mod I am developing I wish to add it to some custom items (and blocks if possible).
I don't understand why you're going to go through all this work just to add lore to a block! You could use Forge's event's to add ToolTip to an itemstack. I've used it before and it'll even add to Blocks. I think the Event is ItemTooltipEvent. You could add all the strings you want to the list in the event instance!
How could there be a "correct" and incorrect way? Does one of them not work? Creating an ItemBlock just to add lore will most likely be more CPU intensive. There's a clear, easy, and working way right in front of you and you want to go the harder, more-work way? That just does't make any sense. Please explain if I have something "incorrect'. Also, what do you mean by "Because that is more for if you want to add tooltips to things you don't add."
