[1.7.2][Solved]Mod looking in the wrong directory for armor.


Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone, I've tried to add some custom armor to my mod. I got the armor to work but the problem is it's not rendering because it's looking in minecraft's texture folder, not my mod's. If someone can help me fix this that would be great because I've been at this for hours.


Emerald Armor Code


package com.skullcrusher.BetterThings.Armor;


import net.minecraft.item.ItemArmor;

import net.minecraft.item.ItemStack;


import com.skullcrusher.BetterThings.BetterThings;

import com.sun.xml.internal.stream.Entity;


public class EmeraldArmor extends ItemArmor


public EmeraldArmor(ArmorMaterial armormaterial, int renderID, int partID)


super(armormaterial, renderID, partID);



public String getArmorTexture(ItemStack itemstack, Entity entity, int slot, String layer)


if((itemstack.getItem() == BetterThings.EmeraldHelmet) || (itemstack.getItem() == BetterThings.EmeraldChestplate) || (itemstack.getItem() == BetterThings.EmeraldBoots))


return "betterthings:textures/models/armor/emerald_layer_1.png";


if(itemstack.getItem() == BetterThings.EmeraldLeggings)


return "betterthings:textures/models/armor/emerald_layer_2.png";


else return null;





Error in console


Failed to load texture: minecraft:textures/models/armor/5_layer_1.png

java.io.FileNotFoundException: minecraft:textures/models/armor/5_layer_1.png


[Client thread/WARN]: Failed to load texture: minecraft:textures/models/armor/5_layer_2.png

java.io.FileNotFoundException: minecraft:textures/models/armor/5_layer_2.png



The path to my texture is "betterthings:textures/models/armor/"

My mod id is "BetterThings" all the other textures work fine, it's just the armor isn't

Did that, Still get the same error it keeps looking in minecraft:textures/models/armor for some reason. If I put the texture in that directory it'll work fine. But I don't want to do that because if someone wanted to make a texture pack with my mod in it, it would be a huge hastle because i'd have to have a minecraft folder with the betterthings folder. I don't see anything else telling it to look for a texture in that directory i'm so confused :(
