Hello. I have recently started working on a mod. I want to make a tile entity similar to the Botania Runic Altar for crafting, but all the tile entity tutorials are either out of date or say conflicting things. Can someone please link me to an up-to-date version? I would like to have items float around the crafter I'm making but I guess I should get it working first before I go all fancy.
Also, how does a beacon scan to know how many tiers are built on it and how does it know when blocks on it are broken. Beacons are a big part of my mod so I need to make this efficient. If you could direct me towards the beacon's class file or something similar that would be great.
