ISimpleBlockRenderingHandler.renderInventoryBlock - Render vanilla block?


Recommended Posts

So I've used ISBRH to render my block. Is it possible to use a vanilla model of the stairs for my block for inventory rendering, or do I have to write the rendering code from scratch?


Background: I'm overriding the rendering behavior of stairs to connect glass panes to them. In case it's not obvious, I'm not quite familiar with how minecraft renders inventory items.

Ok, I figured out how to render it: renderer.renderBlockAsItem(block, metadata, modelId); (of course I'm swapping out modelId so I don't form a recursive loop of doom).


Only problem now is that the block renders in completely flat light. Looks like all other blocks have a light source above them. Mine is now entirely bright and looks flat... see screenshot below...




Anyone know how to get this shadow effect so it doesn't look like crap?

Are you making a custom block or overriding vanilla stairs? Because if you're making your stairs, you could just extend BlockStair, I don't see why having a custom renderer for stairs.

I try my best, so apologies if I said something obviously stupid!

Overriding vanilla stairs. Fixed it by locating the tesselator code in RenderBlock (renderBlockAsItem for anyone looking for this in the future) and just copying into my instance of ISBRH. Note that just calling renderBlockAsItem didn't work.... the light level was too flat.
