[1.8.9] Entities models and multiple textures


Recommended Posts


I'm playing around with entities and models and I'm wondering if it is possibile to use multiple textures (from multiple files) to render each parts of the models


Let's say I have a ModelZombie (composed by the head, body, two legs and two arms) and I want to apply texture A1.png to the head, B5.png to the body, C3.png on one leg and so on. The actual texture files are chosen randomly (between A1, A2, A3 etc) when the entity is created


I known I can return a different texture in the Render class based on the entity data but that is a single texture file for the whole model

I think that they are just kind of lazy.. the zombie villager texture is the normal zombie one with a new head and cloth added below so they could have used only one texture


I may be able to pull this off my overriding RenderLivingEntity::renderModel and make it bind a texture / render the model part for each of the parts of the model (so bind+render the head with one texture, bind+render the body with another texture and so on)


I'm not sure how this will go performance wise
