[RESOLVED] Forge can't find my model JSON (Unable to Load Model)


Recommended Posts

I am building my first mod and am struggling to add an item to the game successfully.

I am building with Java 8,
Using MDK 1.16.5
I have uploaded the code to a Github repository [Deleted Repository] for more thorough review if desired.

 I am receiving an error related to being unable to find my JSON file. 

[net.minecraft.client.renderer.model.ModelBakery/]: Unable to load model: 'archtest:astonium#inventory' referenced from: archtest:astonium#inventory: java.io.FileNotFoundException: archtest:models/item/astonium.json

My current hierarchy --> photo here

I have attempted to rearrange the hierarchy and place the models directly into the resources directory however this has not worked either. 


  "parent": "item/generated",
  "textures": {
    "layer0": "archtest:item/astonium"


Any help is appreciated.
