One block different textures

How do you have a Block class were you can select what texture you want? The getIcon method doesn't work. It will change all the types of the Block. I want them to be changed interdependently.

 

I hope you can help me :D

Hi

 

You need a  TileEntity with TileEntitySpecialRenderer for this. 

 

Alternatively, you can use a block with metadata.  That will let you choose from up to 16 different textures for each block, varied independently.

 

A quick google should find you a number of tutorials on both of these.

Every block location in the world not only stores the Block ID, but also a 2nd number, called metadata. For performance and memory reasons this number can only reach from 0 to 15 inclusive (16 states). It is used by e.g. the furnace, dispenser, etc. to store which direction it is facing, but you can use it for whatever you want.

 

You can set it by using world.setBlockMetadataWithNotify to set only the metadata or pass it to world.setBlock directly, together with the Block.

 

Then in the getIcon method of your Block you get 2 parameters, one of them is the metadata, read the javadoc to find out which. Then you can return different Icons based on the metadata.

    • Hi, so I was making an item that sends info to the server to do some work, and I want the server to send the client back the results? How do I do that? Here is my code:   The snippet that sends the packet to the server SimpleChannelNetwork.CHANNEL.sendToServer(new CreateStructureCompass("fortress"));   The file that manage the traffic package io.github.bossmania.NetherandEndMaps.core.network; import io.github.bossmania.NetherandEndMaps.NetherandEndMaps; import io.github.bossmania.NetherandEndMaps.core.network.message.CreateStructureCompass; import net.minecraft.util.ResourceLocation; import net.minecraftforge.fml.network.NetworkRegistry; import net.minecraftforge.fml.network.simple.SimpleChannel; public class SimpleChannelNetwork { public static final String NETWORK_VERSION = "0.1.0"; public static final SimpleChannel CHANNEL = NetworkRegistry.newSimpleChannel( new ResourceLocation(NetherandEndMaps.MOD_ID, "network"), () -> NETWORK_VERSION, version -> version.equals(NETWORK_VERSION), version -> version.equals(NETWORK_VERSION)); public static void init() { CHANNEL.registerMessage(0, CreateStructureCompass.class ,CreateStructureCompass::encode, CreateStructureCompass::decode, CreateStructureCompass::handle); } }   the code that handle the packet receive and where I want the server to send back a packet to the client package io.github.bossmania.NetherandEndMaps.core.network.message; import java.util.function.Supplier; import io.github.bossmania.NetherandEndMaps.common.items.TemporaryItem; import net.minecraft.entity.player.ServerPlayerEntity; import net.minecraft.item.ItemStack; import net.minecraft.network.PacketBuffer; import net.minecraft.util.math.BlockPos; import net.minecraft.world.gen.feature.structure.Structure; import net.minecraft.world.server.ServerWorld; import net.minecraftforge.fml.network.NetworkEvent; import net.minecraft.item.Item; import net.minecraft.item.ItemGroup; public class CreateStructureCompass { public String structureType; public CreateStructureCompass() { } //create the constructor and store the structureType public CreateStructureCompass(String structureType) { this.structureType = structureType; } //encode the message public static void encode(CreateStructureCompass message, PacketBuffer buffer) { buffer.writeString(message.structureType); } //decode the message public static CreateStructureCompass decode(PacketBuffer buffer) { return new CreateStructureCompass(buffer.readString()); } //execute function when message is sent to server public static void handle(CreateStructureCompass message, Supplier<NetworkEvent.Context> contextSupplier) { NetworkEvent.Context context = contextSupplier.get(); context.enqueueWork(() -> { //get the player and the server ServerPlayerEntity player = context.getSender(); ServerWorld SEWorld = player.getServerWorld(); //get the location of the structure BlockPos structureLocation = SEWorld.func_241117_a_(Structure.FORTRESS, player.getPosition(),100, false); //this is where I want the server to send structureLocation back to the player }); context.setPacketHandled(true); } }  
    • I cannot get an instance of MC Forge to run with either the vanilla launcher or GDLauncher, yet vanilla MC and Fabric MC work fine in both.  I am running the latest versions of everything, and no 1.18-compatible version of Forge will launch even though they all install without fail. Using the vanilla launcher I get exit code 0 and the following logs: Debug log Latest log With GDLauncher I get the following console output:  
    • In 1.15 and before, you could get the item being held/dragged by the cursor using PlayerInventory#getItemStack. This no longer seems to be the case. How do we do this now?
