[1.8] Custom Liquid not working... :(


Recommended Posts

Trying to make a custom liquid, and when I instantiate the BlockLiquid I get an "InvalidMaterial" error... This happens every time I place the liquid from my custom item bucket class.


Whats happening is this:




I have my Custom Liquid/Fluid class that is constructed using a custom material:


public class BlockFluidCustom extends BlockLiquid {

public static final String name = "fluid_snow";

public BlockFluidCustom() {



And whenever I try to place the custom liquid, this method gets invoked...


    public static BlockDynamicLiquid getFlowingBlock(Material materialIn)
        if (materialIn == Material.water)
            return Blocks.flowing_water;
        else if (materialIn == Material.lava)
            return Blocks.flowing_lava;
            throw new IllegalArgumentException("Invalid material");


THUS, the error is thrown. http://minecraftforge.net/forum/Smileys/default/cry.gif

Is there a way around this?!?

Could I just change the texture of the fluid, but construct it with Material.water? heeeelllp plis.

I may have over-thunk it...

Don't use the vanilla liquid blocks. Use Forge's BlockFluidClassic.


Forgot to mention: I tried BlockFluidClassic and I couldn't figure out how to put the texture on the block. Every time I placed it minecraft crashed, giving me a NullPointer..Something about Texture Atlas and a setIcons() method... How would I Implement that method in the liquid classes I have? It that what you are talking about?
