I'm new to Data Generators and quite unsure how they work yet. I've been taking a look at the BetterEnd mod for a reference, but I can't seem to get it working.
I've got model and blockstate files generating, but it can't seem to locate parent files which are not in the generated/resources folder like it does in the BetterEnd mod.
This is the generated model file in "src/generated/resources/assets/modid/models/block"
The parent file is just located in "src/main/resources/assets/modid/models/block"
The error I'm getting is:
[Worker-Main-9/WARN] [net.minecraft.client.renderer.model.ModelBakery/]: Unable to load model: 'modid:block/parent' referenced from: modid:block: java.io.FileNotFoundException: modid:models/block/parent.json
That error is only once, but then I get the same error for every block that has the same parent file:
[Worker-Main-9/WARN] [net.minecraft.client.renderer.model.ModelBakery/]: Unable to resolve texture reference: #missingno in modid:block/block
However, when I copy the parent file into "src/generated/resources/assets/modid/models/block" everything works fine.
Probably being really stupid. So let me know if you spot my mistakes.
