1.8 Creative Tabs?


Recommended Posts



I have been working on a creative tab for Minecraft. It shows up in the creative inventory, but it has no texture (pink and black squares). I tried:

public Item getTabIconItem() {
	return UltraCraft.steelIngot;

And here is the code for SteelIngot:


package uc.items;

import net.minecraft.item.Item;
import net.minecraftforge.fml.common.Mod.EventHandler;
import net.minecraftforge.fml.common.event.FMLInitializationEvent;
import net.minecraftforge.fml.common.registry.GameRegistry;
import uc.mainmod.UltraCraft;

public class SteelIngot extends Item {
public SteelIngot() {



Here is the .json file for SteelIngot:

"parent": "builtin/generated",
"textures": {
"layer0": "UltraCraft:textures/items/SteelIngot"
"display": {
"thirdperson": {
"rotation": [ -90, 0, 0 ],
"translation": [ 0, 1, -3 ],
"scale": [ 0.55, 0.55, 0.55 ]
"firstperson": {
"rotation": [ 0, -135, 25 ],
"translation": [ 0, 4, 2 ],
"scale": [ 1.7, 1.7, 1.7 ]

Sup bruh.

I think you also need to register the item renderer. In the init handling method of your client proxy, you need something like this:


        RenderItem renderItem = Minecraft.getMinecraft().getRenderItem();

        renderItem.getItemModelMesher().register(yourItem, 0, new ModelResourceLocation("yourmodid:" + yourItem.getUnlocalizedName().substring(5), "inventory"));

Assuming my modid is UltraCraft, and my item is called steelIngot, and the unlocalizedName is "SteelIngot", wouldn't the code be:


renderItem.getItemModelMesher().register(steelIngot, 0, new ModelResourceLocation("UltraCraft:models/item/" + yourItem.getUnlocalizedName(), "inventory"));


My .json is called SteelIngot.json, and it's located in src\main\resources\assets\UltraCraft\models\item.

Sup bruh.

    • Suddenly the installer stopped working, both forge and neoforge, I've tested it on almost all versions of java and it didn't solve my problem.] Here is the log that appears after trying to open the file: JVM info: Oracle Corporation - 21.0.2 - 21.0.2+13-LTS-58 java.net.preferIPv4Stack=true Current Time: 27/02/2024 13:55:14 Host: maven.neoforged.net [,] Host: libraries.minecraft.net [,] Host: launchermeta.mojang.com [,] Host: piston-meta.mojang.com [,] java.net.UnknownHostException: Este host nᅢᆪo ᅢᄅ conhecido (authserver.mojang.com)     at java.base/java.net.Inet6AddressImpl.lookupAllHostAddr(Native Method)     at java.base/java.net.Inet6AddressImpl.lookupAllHostAddr(Inet6AddressImpl.java:52)     at java.base/java.net.InetAddress$PlatformResolver.lookupByName(InetAddress.java:1211)     at java.base/java.net.InetAddress.getAddressesFromNameService(InetAddress.java:1828)     at java.base/java.net.InetAddress$NameServiceAddresses.get(InetAddress.java:1139)     at java.base/java.net.InetAddress.getAllByName0(InetAddress.java:1818)     at java.base/java.net.InetAddress.getAllByName(InetAddress.java:1688)     at net.minecraftforge.installer.DownloadUtils.getIps(DownloadUtils.java:296)     at net.minecraftforge.installer.SimpleInstaller.main(SimpleInstaller.java:124) Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NullPointerException: Cannot invoke "java.util.List.stream()" because the return value of "net.minecraftforge.installer.DownloadUtils.getIps(String)" is null     at net.minecraftforge.installer.SimpleInstaller.main(SimpleInstaller.java:124)   If anyone knows how to solve this please tell me.
