[1.8] External assets folder

Hello

 

I have blocks that use runtime-generated textures (with multiple "layers"), and I was wondering if I could somehow save them, since they are static textures. The idea would be to generate the .png files on the first run, and then use them as any other texture.

In 1.7, I had started messing around with the tesselator and an ISimpleBlockRenderingHandler, but I found it rather tedious and buggy (my blocks should be falling blocks, but their renderer would not render them properly when falling).

 

I think the following workflow would work, but I have no clue where to save the images, and how that would play with Minecraft's resource system.

try{
       //attempt to register the block with the texture
}catch(whatever error is thrown when the texture dosen't exist){
       //generate the image using Java's standard image processing stuff
       //register the block with the texture
}

 

Is this a good idea? and how do the minecraft resource system translates to the "usual" Java file/image paths?

Thanks for the fast reply!

 

Do you have suggestions for where I should put this in the minecraft folder tree?

I still have a few things to fix before trying this (1.8 changed a lot of things in my code, and the compiler errors make things hard to test  :-\ ) but I feel a pointer to an example of something similar would make things easier  ;D

    • Hello. I'm using IntelliJ IDEA and making a mod for Forge 1.20.1 and I'm trying to make a GUI. I found that the Minecraft-related codes are all obfuscated and when setting up the workspace, Gradle did not execute Deobfuscation tasks like createMcpToSrg. Is this normal or a bug? Can anyone help me with this?
    • Hello! I'm trying to get a list of all entries registered in the infusion upgrade registry. Code can be found in github: https://github.com/ChamoisEST/MiningMadness/tree/1.20.1 Registry in common/registries/MMRegistries.java Event that calls the registry is in MiningMadness.java List of registered entries should be called in common/capabilities/infusion/InfusionCapabilityImplementation.java:getActiveInfusions() in the for loop. Is there any way to accomplish that? Thanks in advance!  
    • So, I am trying to create and add tags to my custom damage type, but looks like I made something wrong, since it crashing with error that "cannot register" damage type. Im trying to register it, and in datagen add tags, but it everytime crashing due to not register "grimtales:entropy". Full code there - https://github.com/undertakerJ/Grim-Tales-Forge ModDamageTypes class public class ModDamageTypes { public static final DeferredRegister<DamageType> DAMAGE_TYPES = DeferredRegister.create(Registries.DAMAGE_TYPE, GrimTales.MOD_ID); public static final ResourceKey<DamageType> ENTROPY_KEY = ResourceKey.create(Registries.DAMAGE_TYPE, new ResourceLocation(GrimTales.MOD_ID, "entropy")); public static final RegistryObject<DamageType> ENTROPY = DAMAGE_TYPES.register( "entropy", () -> new DamageType("entropy_effect", DamageScaling.ALWAYS, 1f, DamageEffects.HURT)); // // public static final DamageSource ENTROPY_SOURCE = new DamageSource(Holder.direct(ENTROPY.get())); public static void register(IEventBus eventBus) { DAMAGE_TYPES.register(eventBus); } } Datagen for damageTags public class ModDamageTagsProvider extends DamageTypeTagsProvider { public ModDamageTagsProvider( PackOutput p_270719_, CompletableFuture<HolderLookup.Provider> p_270256_, @Nullable ExistingFileHelper existingFileHelper) { super(p_270719_, p_270256_, GrimTales.MOD_ID, existingFileHelper); } @Override protected void addTags(HolderLookup.Provider pProvider) { this.tag(DamageTypeTags.BYPASSES_INVULNERABILITY).add(ModDamageTypes.ENTROPY_KEY); } } Datagen class it self   @Mod.EventBusSubscriber(modid = GrimTales.MOD_ID, bus = Mod.EventBusSubscriber.Bus.MOD) public class DataGenerators { @SubscribeEvent public static void gatherData(GatherDataEvent event){ DataGenerator generator = event.getGenerator(); PackOutput packOutput = generator.getPackOutput(); ExistingFileHelper helper = event.getExistingFileHelper(); CompletableFuture<HolderLookup.Provider> lookupProvider = event.getLookupProvider(); generator.addProvider(event.includeServer(), new ModDamageTagsProvider(packOutput, lookupProvider, helper)); } } And register class in main class public GrimTales() { IEventBus modEventBus = FMLJavaModLoadingContext.get().getModEventBus(); ModDamageTypes.register(modEventBus); modEventBus.addListener(this::commonSetup); MinecraftForge.EVENT_BUS.register(this); modEventBus.addListener(this::addCreative); }

    • Hi. I'm trying to play RLCraft with Optifine but my game keeps crashing on startup with Exit Code 1. The modpack was working fine yesterday, not sure what changed to make it not wanna work anymore. I was hoping someone here could help me figure out what's going wrong. If I remove Optifine, nothing changes, I still get the same errors. Thanks in advance. Crash Report (I only included the errors+fatal, I’m not sure if more is needed, please let me know): https://pastebin.ai/66ivknz0f4
