A question about json files


Toost

Recommended Posts

How simple would it be to render, say, a pipe shape, with json files?

DRAGONMANG: "I'm Dragonmang, m8. Here me roar."

HERO: "Oh no... not. Dragonmang."

DRAGONMANG: "Roar, m8."

HERO: "Ahhh......"

And so the brave knight and Dragonmang fought on the mountaintop for many moons....

I don't really understand json files, so I just sorta want to know what they are for.

EDIT:

I thought they were for rendering, but appearently not.

DRAGONMANG: "I'm Dragonmang, m8. Here me roar."

HERO: "Oh no... not. Dragonmang."

DRAGONMANG: "Roar, m8."

HERO: "Ahhh......"

And so the brave knight and Dragonmang fought on the mountaintop for many moons....

But you can use JSON for pretty much anything you want.

 

Its all about how you read the data.

Apparently I'm a complete and utter jerk and come to this forum just like to make fun of people, be confrontational, and make your personal life miserable.  If you think this is the case, JUST REPORT ME.  Otherwise you're just going to get reported when you reply to my posts and point it out, because odds are, I was trying to be nice.

 

Exception: If you do not understand Java, I WILL NOT HELP YOU and your thread will get locked.

 

DO NOT PM ME WITH PROBLEMS. No help will be given.

OHHHhhh. That makes so much more sense now.

DRAGONMANG: "I'm Dragonmang, m8. Here me roar."

HERO: "Oh no... not. Dragonmang."

DRAGONMANG: "Roar, m8."

HERO: "Ahhh......"

I use Forge's blockstates format to compose the models for my pipe blocks from two basic JSON models (the centre cube and a side connection).

 

You can see the blockstates file here and the pipe models here here.

 

This is just the basic shape of a pipe, it doesn't have any sort of fancy rendering like Buildcraft pipes do.

Please don't PM me to ask for help. Asking your question in a public thread preserves it for people who are having the same problem in the future.
