Cant get itemmodel of Block to render


Recommended Posts

Use ModelLoader.setCustomModelResourceLocation instead of the ItemModelMesher stuff, do it in preInit.

Aha, I've been seeing (frequently) the advice to use custom location, but not always the admonition "instead of mesher stuff". It's finally dawning on me that this choice is not just a personal preference. Is there an explanation somewhere of why the former is superior to the latter? (I searched, but the haystack of code excerpts swamped any hope of finding a comparison).


Having finally learned the mesher well enough to make it work in all of my mods, I'm feeling reluctant to dig them up and change them, but a good reason could persuade me to do so during my port to 1.9.


BTW, For grins, I just Googled Minecraft Forge 1.8 item model tutorial again. The top four tutorials all teach the deprecated mesher technique, so the parade of meshed up modders will continue :(  If there's a tut that teaches the model loader, I can't find it. I looked at Forge's docs, but the "Models & Rendering" section only mentions blocks, not items.

The debugger is a powerful and necessary tool in any IDE, so learn how to use it. You'll be able to tell us more and get better help here if you investigate your runtime problems in the debugger before posting.
