Change Item Texture On Right Click question


Recommended Posts

I have an item That I wish to change texture on right click and depending on the length that the right click is held for I want the item to change to a differnt colour. (kind of like the bow)


I have written the following but the icons are invisible

public class AcornHarvester extends CustomItem{
public AcornHarvester(){
	this.maxStackSize = 1;

private IIcon[] iconArray;

public void registerIcons(IIconRegister iconRegister){
	iconArray = new IIcon[14];
	iconArray[0] = iconRegister.registerIcon("mymodsid:acornHarvestRedOpen");
	iconArray[1] = iconRegister.registerIcon("mymodsid:acornHarvestRedClosed");
	iconArray[2] = iconRegister.registerIcon("mymodsid:acornHarvestWhiteOpen");
	iconArray[3] = iconRegister.registerIcon("mymodsid:acornHarvestWhiteClosed");
	iconArray[4] = iconRegister.registerIcon("mymodsid:acornHarvestBlueOpen");
	iconArray[5] = iconRegister.registerIcon("mymodsid:acornHarvestBlueClosed");
	iconArray[6] = iconRegister.registerIcon("mymodsid:acornHarvestBlackOpen");
	iconArray[7] = iconRegister.registerIcon("mymodsid:acornHarvestBlackClosed");
	iconArray[8] = iconRegister.registerIcon("mymodsid:acornHarvestYellowOpen");
	iconArray[9] = iconRegister.registerIcon("mymodsid:acornHarvestYellowClosed");
	iconArray[10] = iconRegister.registerIcon("mymodsid:acornHarvestGreenOpen");
	iconArray[11] = iconRegister.registerIcon("mymod:acornHarvestGreenClosed");
	iconArray[12] = iconRegister.registerIcon("mymod:acornHarvestPinkOpen");
	iconArray[13] = iconRegister.registerIcon("mymod:acornHarvestPinkClosed");

//How long it takes to use or consume an item
public int getMaxItemUseDuration(ItemStack par1ItemStack)
return 72000;
public ItemStack onItemRightClick(ItemStack itemStack, World world, EntityPlayer player) {	
	if (itemStack != null && itemStack.getItem() == CommonProxy.acornHarvester){
		itemStack.damageItem(1, player);

	return itemStack;
public IIcon getIcon(ItemStack stack, int renderPass, EntityPlayer player,
		ItemStack usingItem, int useRemaining) {
	if (usingItem == null) {
		return itemIcon;
	int ticksInUse = stack.getMaxItemUseDuration() - useRemaining;
	if (ticksInUse > 28) {
		return iconArray[13];
	} else if (ticksInUse > 26) {
		return iconArray[12];
	} else if (ticksInUse > 24) {
		return iconArray[11];

	} else if (ticksInUse > 22) {
		return iconArray[10];

	} else if (ticksInUse > 20) {
		return iconArray[9];

	} else if (ticksInUse > 18) {
		return iconArray[8];

	} else if (ticksInUse > 16) {
		return iconArray[7];

	} else if (ticksInUse > 14) {
		return iconArray[6];

	} else if (ticksInUse > 12) {
		return iconArray[5];

	} else if (ticksInUse > 10) {
		return iconArray[4];

	} else if (ticksInUse >  {
		return iconArray[3];

	} else if (ticksInUse > 6) {
		return iconArray[2];

	} else if (ticksInUse > 4) {
		return iconArray[1];

	} else if (ticksInUse > 2) {
		return iconArray[0];

	} else {
		return itemIcon;


Where in my CustomItem class I have


public class CustomItem extends Item {

public CustomItem() {


public void registerIcons(IIconRegister iconRegister) {
	this.itemIcon = iconRegister.registerIcon(MyMod.modid + ":"
			+ this.getUnlocalizedName().substring(5));


The texture shows up if I get rid of the registerIcon array and getIcon methods. Any help is appreciated

And in my Common Proxy I register the item in the following way


public static Item acornHarvester;

//this method passes stuff to the main mod class
public void preInit(){

public void registerItems(){
acornHarvester = new AcornHarvester();
		this.registerEachItem(acornHarvester, "acornHarvester", "Acorn Harvester");

public void registerEachItem(Item item, String unlocalizedItemName, String displayName){
		GameRegistry.registerItem(item, displayName);


This file is very large for my mod so I took a bunch out to keep it relevant

Show us the error log?  It should have a line something like

"texture not found".


A few things to try


This link shows where the files should go


If you still can't find it, this might help


Keep in mind that the upper/lower case must match exactly.

    • Hello I'm looking for help launching minecraft through curseforge. I've scoured the Internet and can't seem to find anyone with a solution to my specific situation/fix that I haven't tried. I'll post the Curseforge debug Logs below. But basically I'm on a Laptop (Lenovo Legion Slim 7 2021) And the people I've seen with the most similar scenario and found a fix they always had an AMD graphics card and were missing the correct drivers, Well i have the Nvidia geforce RTX 3060 Laptop version with all the most updated drivers, I've reinstalled the drivers so that doesn't seem to me the problem. Also, minecraft will launch in vanilla and through another modloader called modrinth. So it doesn't feel like a Java error either but I don't no how to read this debug page so I'm looking for advice. Please help?!  
    • Hello. Basically I made a custom standalone util library (https://github.com/lolhol/Pathfinder3D) and want to use it with my mod. Although I have done the normal jit pack stuff (basically the tutorial on their website) the Minecraft crashes the second it starts saying that it cannot find the name of a class inside of my library. (When I remove the implement(<my library link thingy>) mc launches normally and does not crash (if I comment out the code that uses the custom lib)). Now then, is there a quick fix for this because all of the other questions that I found on this topic were trying to load another mod (again, not what I’m trying to do). Am I doing something wrong?

    • Hello, im kind of a newbie on creating mods, and i been trying to make simples mods so far, Right now, i'm creating a mod which detect an specific type of mob and kill it if reach a certain number, by far the mod is detecting the mob and counting them but at the time it reach the limit number, it don't do anything. The Game don't tweak, don't crash, just i't don't run the method i call, which is kill().   public InteractionResultHolder<ItemStack> use(Level pLevel, Player pPlayer, InteractionHand pUsedHand) { final var TotalCows = pLevel.getNearbyEntities(Cow.class, TargetingConditions.forNonCombat(), pPlayer, pPlayer.getBoundingBox().inflate(5)); if(pLevel.isClientSide){ if(pPlayer.getItemInHand(InteractionHand.MAIN_HAND).getItem() == this.asItem()){ if(!TotalCows.isEmpty()){ if(TotalCows.get(0).isAlive()){ TotalCows.get(0).kill(); } }else{ pPlayer.sendSystemMessage(Component.literal("No hay vacas")); } } } The sendSystemMessage is get triggered, and when i change the method .kill() by any other like send a message it got called, can i get some tips, and a clue of what i'm missing
    • UPD: I DID IT   @Override public void applyEffectTick(LivingEntity livingEntity, int pAmplifier) { Level level = livingEntity.level(); if (!level.isClientSide()) { Holder<DamageType> entropyHolder = level .registryAccess() .registryOrThrow(Registries.DAMAGE_TYPE) .getHolderOrThrow(GTDamageTypes.ENTROPY_KEY); livingEntity.hurt(new DamageSource(entropyHolder), 1); } super.applyEffectTick(livingEntity, pAmplifier); }
