How to render an artificial sky on a block?


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I'm hoping to create a block that renders a fake skybox, blocking anything behind it. There are a couple of mods that already do this, but they are very outdated.

One example: https://github.com/Elix-x/Skyblocks/ https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/skyblocks

I'm not familiar enough with rendering to be able to port it. Is there anyone who can point me in the right direction? Any help would be appreciated.

I could use this as well; this is an idea that's been in the back of my head for a while. Unfortunately, I know nothing about rendering. In 1.20.1, a quick look around the rendering classes seems to show that the LevelRenderer class in net.minecraft.client.renderer may be the place to look, but I don't know enough to find out. 

I took a look at the example you linked, but, as you said, it's very outdated. 

This example seems to be more recent; 1.18.2:

I also found this port of the above, which should work for 1.20.1. Unfortunately, it does not work with Optifine (and apparently never will).

Hopefully this helps someone!
