Missing Texture Error


Recommended Posts

I'm having a problem with my mod because none of my textures are being loaded. For that matter neither are my localizations. My block class looks like this:


package net.richbaird.testtutorial.blocks;

import cpw.mods.fml.common.registry.GameRegistry;
//import cpw.mods.fml.common.registry.LanguageRegistry;
import net.minecraft.block.Block;
import net.minecraft.block.material.Material;
import net.minecraft.creativetab.CreativeTabs;
import net.richbaird.testtutorial.lib.constants;

public class OrangeBlock extends Block {
    private String blockName = "orangeBlock";
    public OrangeBlock() {
        this.setBlockName(constants.MODID + "_" + blockName);
        this.setBlockTextureName(constants.MODID + ":" + blockName);
        //LanguageRegistry.addName(this,"tutorial block");





here is my constants class


package net.richbaird.testtutorial.lib;
public class constants {
    public static final String MODID = "testtutorial";
    public static final String MODNAME = "Test Tutorial";
    public static final String VERSION = "1.0";


I have my texture saved at




According to the log it is unable to find my texture. Here's the message I'm getting


[08:08:14] [Client thread/ERROR]: Using missing texture, unable to load testtutorial:textures/blocks/orangeBlock.png
java.io.FileNotFoundException: testtutorial:textures/blocks/orangeBlock.png


The client loads and my item shows up but with a default black and purple texture. What have I done wrong? I'm thinking it might have to do with my naming conventions, since the .lang file never gets read either, and the only way I can give my block a friendly name is with the now depreciated LanguageRegistry.addName() method
