    I want to save large areas of blocks to files for later use.

    What information do I need to save about a Block in memory such that when I reload the block into a different location in the world, it has exactly the same attributes (same material, same biome, etc.)?

    It appears I just have to save the Material and the Biome. Is there additional data I need to save beyond this?

    Thanks!

    You should probably also save the block's data so that blocks like wood and leaves can be different types. Maybe also special data for things like sign text.

    Why would you save the biome? That isn't a property of a block...

    Suggestion: Check how other plugins (e.g. WorldEdit) do it. Learning from examples is a great way to get to know new stuff ^^
