Directional mechanic

What is this?

This mechanic allows you to place blocks and have them change their texture depending on the direction in which they are placed, like for example logs. There are 3 types of directional blocks: LOG, FURNACE and DROPPER. LOG takes up 3 custom block variations, FURNACE takes 4 and DROPPER takes 6.
Every sub-block can have a model property, which Oraxen will use to determine what to display. If there is no model property on the sub-block, Oraxen will use the model from the parent-block.
Models are also automatically rotated depending on the direction in which the block is placed. This means you can use the same model, and it will be rotated accordingly. If the sub-block has a model defined, it will not be rotated, allowing you to use different models for different directions.
