[1.18.2] how to create my own fluid overlay


Recommended Posts


the images above show fluid overlays for lava and water.

below is my current code for my own fluid:

package me.minioof.minimod.fluid;

import me.minioof.minimod.block.ModBlocks;
import me.minioof.minimod.fluid.custom.OrangeJuice;
import me.minioof.minimod.item.ModItems;
import me.minioof.minimod.minimod;
import net.minecraft.resources.ResourceLocation;
import net.minecraft.sounds.SoundEvents;
import net.minecraft.world.level.block.LiquidBlock;
import net.minecraft.world.level.block.state.BlockBehaviour;
import net.minecraft.world.level.material.FlowingFluid;
import net.minecraft.world.level.material.Fluid;
import net.minecraft.world.level.material.Material;
import net.minecraftforge.eventbus.api.IEventBus;
import net.minecraftforge.fluids.FluidAttributes;
import net.minecraftforge.fluids.ForgeFlowingFluid;
import net.minecraftforge.registries.DeferredRegister;
import net.minecraftforge.registries.ForgeRegistries;
import net.minecraftforge.registries.RegistryObject;

public class ModFluids {
    public static final ResourceLocation WATER_STILL_RL = new ResourceLocation("block/water_still");
    public static final ResourceLocation WATER_FLOWING_RL = new ResourceLocation("block/water_flow");
    public static final ResourceLocation WATER_OVERLAY_RL = new ResourceLocation("block/water_overlay");

    public static final DeferredRegister<Fluid> FLUIDS
            = DeferredRegister.create(ForgeRegistries.FLUIDS, minimod.MOD_ID);

    public static final RegistryObject<FlowingFluid> ORANGE_JUICE_FLUID
            = FLUIDS.register("orange_juice", () -> new OrangeJuice.Source(ModFluids.ORANGE_JUICE_PROPERTIES));

    public static final RegistryObject<FlowingFluid> ORANGE_JUICE_FLOWING
            = FLUIDS.register("orange_juice_flowing", () -> new OrangeJuice.Flowing(ModFluids.ORANGE_JUICE_PROPERTIES));

    public static final ForgeFlowingFluid.Properties ORANGE_JUICE_PROPERTIES = new ForgeFlowingFluid.Properties(
            () -> ORANGE_JUICE_FLUID.get(), () -> ORANGE_JUICE_FLOWING.get(), FluidAttributes.builder(WATER_STILL_RL, WATER_FLOWING_RL)
            .block(() -> ModFluids.ORANGE_JUICE_BLOCK.get()).bucket(() -> ModItems.ORANGE_JUICE_BUCKET.get());

    public static final RegistryObject<LiquidBlock> ORANGE_JUICE_BLOCK = ModBlocks.BLOCKS.register("orange_juice",
            () -> new LiquidBlock(() -> ModFluids.ORANGE_JUICE_FLUID.get(), BlockBehaviour.Properties.of(Material.WATER)

    public static void register(IEventBus eventBus) {


How can i make my own fluid overlay? I would like it to recolor stuff, like water, and have high fog level like lava.

Forge added support for this in 1.19 (search for rendering) - https://github.com/MinecraftForge/MinecraftForge/issues/8608

I don't think there is anything for this in 1.18.2, but somebody might correct me?

If you don't post your logs/debug.log we can't help you. For curseforge you need to enable the forge debug.log in its minecraft settings. You should also post your crash report if you have one.

If there is no error in the log file and you don't have a crash report then post the launcher_log.txt from the minecraft folder. Again for curseforge this will be in your curseforge/minecraft/Install

Large files should be posted to a file sharing site like https://gist.github.com  You should also read the support forum sticky post.
