The simple block type is visually the same as the normal block type. It's the standard 1m x 1m cubes that are the staple of Minecraft terrain and building.
The difference between normal and simple blocks is one purely of function. Simple type blocks lack the ability to have function triggers linked to them, and are not considered when the game is automatically updating blocks (though they still cause block updates when placed, removed, or altered). As such, the simple block type's tick rate is non-existant, making this block type extremely efficient for the game's engine.
For this reason, it's recommended that any block that is purely aesthetic in nature, or has only basic attributes, be of the simple type. This is especailly true for ore blocks as large quantities of normal-type blocks can cause massive lag even when they have no real reason to be causing it.
Example Simple Block
name="Shiny Ore"; id=229; texturefile="customstuff.png"; textureindex=19; material="rock"; stepsound="stone"; hardness=2; resistance=5; harvestlevel=2; toolclass="pickaxe";
Simple Block Attributes
Below is a table of attributes available to simple-type blocks, including information on notable attributes. Note that unlike most other block types, no Function Triggers will work with simple type blocks.
This must be set to 'simple' in order for the block to be of the simple type.
