    Hi im just testing/messing around with different things, I wanted to add my own method to the PocketMine block class...how would I go about do this. This is so I can do something like $event->getBlock->iSInArena() (example).
    Should I just create a new 'CustomBlock' which extends 'Block'?

    if you do the 'CustomClass' you would have to check if the $block is an instanceof CustomClass

    You can register a new block by extending the old block class you want to replace. or you can create a new block altogether as long as you have all the necessary functions.
    PHP:
    namespace jasonwynn10\CustomBlockClass {
        use 
    pocketmine\block\BlockFactory;
        use 
    pocketmine\block\Dirt;
        use 
    pocketmine\event\Listener;
        use 
    pocketmine\plugin\PluginBase;
        class 
    Main extends PluginBase implements Listener {
            public function 
    onEnable() {
                
    BlockFactory::registerBlock(new CustomBlock(), true);
            }
        }
        class 
    CustomBlock extends Dirt {
            public function 
    isInArena() : bool {
                return 
    true// or whatever code you have
            
    }
        }
    }
    Note: this does not add the function to all block classes. you need to check if the block from the event is an instance of your registered class before attempting to use your function.

    Thanks for the help, much appreciated, I had done that before but it hadn't occurred to me that I had to check if the block was an instance of the custom block, nonetheless thanks
