I want gold nugget drop from vanilla stone using pickaxe from my mod. I thought it was possible to add pools to vanilla loot table, but honestly, I have no idea how to do this in new version. Maybe this can be configured through events? What is the best way to do this? I would be appreciated, if you help me. Minecraft version: 1.16.1, Forge version: 32.0.93.
in 1.16, block drops are controlled through loot tables. To add drops to vanilla blocks you have to override the loot tables with a datapack (which can be part of the resources for a mod).
I don't think that HarvestDropsEvent works properly in 1.16 (used to be how you would do this sort of thing, it doesn't appear to work in 1.15), so your best bet may be to try to spawn an item entity from BreakEvent (as I'm not certain if you can specify the tool required to drop a certain item in loot tables), since this does work properly (at least in 1.15).
