Obtaining[]

Breaking[]

How did we get here? blocks can be broken with any tool, but they will not drop. They will directly go in the player's hands like any other block in this version.

Natural generation[]

How did we get here? blocks can be found naturally depending on the item they display.

For example, if a How did we get here? block displays an egg, the block can naturally generate because it can be laid by a chicken. If the block displays a debug stick, it cannot naturally generate because debug sticks can be obtained only by commands and normally do not generate.

How did we get here? blocks can be used as the item they display and can be thrown by the player like any other block. They are also waterloggable.
