Block Tags

experimental

Block Tags are used for various block properties. They can be called when testing for block arguments in commands. Some tags are prefixed with can_be, or can_hurt. One would expect these to have a boolean response.

Application

Block tags can be applied exactly as items, as seen below:

Vanilla Tags

Vanilla tags can be applied to custom blocks, and some vanilla blocks are tagged internally. This kind of tag doesn't give blocks vanilla features. The only usage of it is to tag blocks to make them have the same tags as the vanilla blocks for queries or tests.
