[1.8] Registering Item Model


Recommended Posts

So updating to 1.8 was overall not that difficult for me.

Only problem i encountered was with the way rendering works now.

I am currently trying to allow my item to have a custom model.


I have created a JSON model in BDCraft Cubik PRO so im assuming there aren't any problems with the model.


The problem im having now is that i dont get any errors but the model isn't showing.

So in my client proxy i have this:

public void postInitialize(){

	registerItemModel(FishingItems.crabCage, new ModelResourceLocation(Fishing.ID + ":models/", "crab_cage"));


public void registerItemModel(Item item, ModelResourceLocation model){
	Minecraft.getMinecraft().getRenderItem().getItemModelMesher().register(item, new ItemMeshDefinition(){

		public ModelResourceLocation getModelLocation(ItemStack stack) {
			return model;



So i dont know where to start since im still new to 1.8 and got no errors and the methods are getting called aswell.


*I noted that i doesnt matter if i change the name in my model resource location, it always goes points the the unlocalized name of the item
