I wanted to get some flint in a Minecraft server and had some gravel. According to what I read, I could get flint from gravel that I placed myself.
I started trying and it was unsuccessful. I then tried for a few more times but all did not work.
I'm on Minecraft 1.12.2 Forge client and Waterfall 1.12.2 server with plugins. I don't know if this is intentional or is a feature with Waterfall or some plugins of the server. If you could get flint from mining gravel you placed, it would make no sense (at least to me)! Or is this only a feature for newer versions(eg 1.16)?
What is going on here?
Edit: I also tried this in Singleplayer on the same version and it also did not work. Are the stuff that I read lying to me or am I just very unlucky?
Edit 2: I'm not using a Silk Touch tool
