[Solved][1.16.5] A question about Blockstates JSON files


Recommended Posts

EDIT: If anyone is having the same issue as me, the log tells you the exact combinations of the missing blockstates.


I have been having issues with writing blockstates JSON files. I have searched the documentation but did not find enough information to narrow down the place that I am wrong. I have coded several items with multiple different blockstates and some of my JOSN files work fine while others never seem to work. I do not notice any major differences between the two and am writing to ask your help in figuring out how to write these files.

I have coded a lamp that has the blockstates HorizontalBlock.FACING and BlockStateProperties.AGE_3. My JSON file is below. I have checked it in several JSON validators and have a JSON editor addon added to Eclipse but still cannot see anything wrong. The Inventory icon works fine so it is not an issue with the texture.

    "variants": {
        "facing=north, age=0": { "model": "testmod:block/ceiling_light_off", "y": 180 },
        "facing=south, age=0": { "model": "testmod:block/ceiling_light_off", "y": 0 },
        "facing=west, age=0":  { "model": "testmod:block/ceiling_light_off", "y": 270 },
        "facing=east, age=0":  { "model": "testmod:block/ceiling_light_off", "y": 90 },
        "facing=north, age=1": { "model": "testmod:block/ceiling_light_1", "y": 0 },
        "facing=south, age=1": { "model": "testmod:block/ceiling_light_1", "y": 180 },
        "facing=west, age=1":  { "model": "testmod:block/ceiling_light_1", "y": 270 },
        "facing=east, age=1":  { "model": "testmod:block/ceiling_light_1", "y": 90 },
        "facing=north, age=2": { "model": "testmod:block/ceiling_light_2", "y": 0 },
        "facing=south, age=2": { "model": "testmod:block/ceiling_light_2", "y": 180 },
        "facing=west, age=2":  { "model": "testmod:block/ceiling_light_2", "y": 270 },
        "facing=east, age=2":  { "model": "testmod:block/ceiling_light_2", "y": 90 },
       	"facing=north, age=3": { "model": "testmod:block/ceiling_light_3", "y": 0 },
        "facing=south, age=3": { "model": "testmod:block/ceiling_light_3", "y": 180 },
        "facing=west, age=3":  { "model": "testmod:block/ceiling_light_3", "y": 270 },
        "facing=east, age=3":  { "model": "testmod:block/ceiling_light_3", "y": 90 }

There are better ways of handling multiple properties now instead of listing them all out.


{ "when": { "east": "true" },
  "apply": { "model": "oak_fence_side", "y": 90, "uvlock": true }

Apparently I'm a complete and utter jerk and come to this forum just like to make fun of people, be confrontational, and make your personal life miserable.  If you think this is the case, JUST REPORT ME.  Otherwise you're just going to get reported when you reply to my posts and point it out, because odds are, I was trying to be nice.


Exception: If you do not understand Java, I WILL NOT HELP YOU and your thread will get locked.


DO NOT PM ME WITH PROBLEMS. No help will be given.

Thanks. I checked the logs and solved my problem. I am not sure if multipart would help for this block but I will definingly read more about them and use them in the future! The issue was that I included a space before the age.
