Custom Block Break "Overlay"


Recommended Posts

What is the block breaking animation, and how could I do something similar? 

Rather than cracks forming from center to edge, I was wanting to make it just change opacity so the "intensity" of the cracks just gets worse. I am doing this for my "Strong Blocks", but since I am going to have somewhere around 48+ total, I don't want to make 240 textures (5 crack levels each).

So, is the vanilla animation just a texture rendered over another, is it the original block texture being combined with the various stages of the break texture (a + b1, a +b2, etc), or something else?

I also want to avoid just replacing the vanilla break animation itself since I want this "overlay" to stick around rather than just when the player is breaking the block. (if so much damage is taken up until it gets to say "crack_texture_3", it won't go away unless repaired or damaged further)

Sorry for not replying until now, had some stuff to deal with.

From what I understand, wouldn't this only draw the "overlay" when the block is hovered over by the cursor? If so then perhaps a grass block would be a better example. I think it has two layers, one for the dirt, and another for the monochrome grass that has it's color changed dynamically. 

I'll look through what you said first, and then the grass block if your thing doesn't work. Thanks though

Hmm, I might just do some sort of jimmy rig to get around this.

Do something like make a block model in blockbench that is slightly large than a normal block (something like 0.01 on each side to prevent z-fighting), draw the textures and just have the blocks act as a multipart. (I really hope this can end up transparent and not just blackout the texture underneath)

Might be messy, but I really just want to get this done to move onto something else (been working on this one feature for maybe a month because IRL stuff).

Thanks for the suggestions anyways mate (I can probably use them for some other crazy idea later).

If you want a tiny fraction of offset, use float.epsilon.

0.01 will actually be noticeable. It's about 1/6th of a texture pixel.

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.

    • okay thank you for clarifying! I'll try to implement the setup method and event listeners as an extra class, maybe this works!
    • Show your code. You do not have to draw the entire texture (see above). You do not have to draw the texture at 1:1 scale.

    • I am trying to set up my first project and it says this: Unsupported Java.  Your build is currently configured to use Java 16.0.1 and Gradle 6.8.1. Possible solution:  - Use Java 15 as Gradle JVM: Open Gradle settings   - Upgrade Gradle wrapper to 7.0 version and re-import the project I know I am using Java 15 already because in the gradle settings it says gradle JVM: 15 version 15.0.2 So my question is how do I upgrade the gradle wrapper? Sorry if this is a noobie question, trying to set up my first project.  
    • Yes, I don't think you want this as a mod jar. I am not 100% on the details, but ModLauncher implements a multi-module-layer system and you need to load into a specific layer.
