Help to understand icons


Recommended Posts

Hello, sorry if this was created on wrong place.

I trying to automatic get icons from minecraft folder. I found a bunch of them in - ..\assets\minecraft\textures\item - BUT after some researching I noticed that not all of them are there, then I tried to search in whole folder for some items that was missing and when I type something like - cooblestone - I just got two .png, and are images from textures like:


But I`m expecting to found something like an icon:



So, my question is, how minecraft generate cobblestone icon in game? it generate an small block in runtime using textures?

Okay, I'm not modding minecraft, just using their icons for other purposed, so I want to know where their icons stay. As I said in first post, I was able to found some icons, so getting the acacia boat image is possible because I know where it exist, but for cobblestone (and other items) I cannot found their icons. I'm looking for textures in - %APPDATA%\minecraft\versions\1.18.2\1.18.2\assets\minecraft\textures\item.


And as I didnt found the icon in the whole folder, I was suspecting that it create some kind of thumbnails on runtime, but I'm not sure about it, I also tried to find in installation folder, but it does not have any image file.

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.

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