1.8.9 trying to understand ISmartItemModel[solved]


Recommended Posts

I've been looking at examples and reading any tutorials I can find but it's just not clicking for me.


I am trying to generate an ItemModel from nbt. I have a set of parts, each part has information about its location(relative to a 16x16x16 cube), it's RGBA and eventually its quad once I figure out how this works. I am trying to stitch this information together to create the model.


I am unsure what other information would be need to for someone to actually help, so I will either provide whatever people ask for or do my best implement what I am missing and then bring it back here.

Ok, so right now I have a registry of all available Draftable items that gets maintained server side and a client side registry that gets updated by the server. So I will probably want to generate my model for each Draftable when it gets updated from the server.


public DraftableSmartItemModel implements ISmartItemModel{

   public IFlexibleBakedModel handleItemState(ItemStack stack) {
      IFlexibleBakedModel model = null;
      if(stack.getTagCompound().hasKey(Refs.DRAFTABLE) && stack.model == null)
         model = DraftableReg.GetModel(stack.getTagCompound().getString(Refs.DRAFTABLE));
      return model;



I assume that this is not unique per ItemStack, meaning that I would have to do it this way and not have model as a private class variable.


Next part:

From what I can tell I will still need to used BakedQuads for my model. So I looked into BakedQuads and FaceBakery for the vertex information, but what is happing with shadecolor and is this where I would store my RGBA information?

This is what is getting stored in shade color from FaceBakery, which appears to be a range of magenta - blue but I really don't know what is going on in that return. I recognize the shift left but thats it.

private int getFaceShadeColor(EnumFacing facing)
        float f = this.getFaceBrightness(facing);
        int i = MathHelper.clamp_int((int)(f * 255.0F), 0, 255);
        return -16777216 | i << 16 | i << 8 | i;

I am planning something like this:

DraftableBakedModel implements IFlexibleBakedModel{

   private List<BakedQuad> quads = new ArrayList<BakedQuad>();

   public DraftableBakedModel(IDraftable draft){
      HashMap<String, IPartType> parts = draft.getParts();
      for(int i = x; x < 16; x++)
         for(int y = 0; y < 16; y++)
            for(int z = 0; z < 16; z++)
               if(parts.contain(x + "," + y + "," z))
                  quads.addAll(getQuadFrom(parts.get(x + "," + y + "," z), x, y, z);


   //x, y, z specify the relative top, left, front, for the part to base it's vertices from.
   private List<BakedQuad> getQuadFrom(IPartType part,int x, int y, int z){
      // part has relative vertex information and RGBA for the color and transparency
      // that this part should render with.
      // each part can be thought of as a semi transparent, single color cube
      // although they may not actually be cubes


1. is this the correct place to be specifying a color to render with?

2. it seems like each vertex of Baked Quad only has 1 variable for color, so how do I store the color?

    • I've been trying to give a little transparency to a block and a custom model, but I'm running into the same issue with the transparency of the block Some guides say I use ItemBlockRenderTypes.setRenderLayer in a ClientEvent class but its deprecated, I already tried to set a Properties in Properties.copy(Blocks.FLOWERPOT) But the render in game still doesn't has transparency, only as an Item  
    • My friends and I are modding to survive But recently I want to use cmd to open the server instead of making the single player game public But when I used two methods to start the server, I encountered two problems first A I used forge to install the server files Created using the original server jar The server was installed successfully and the mod was also loaded successfully. But after I replaced the world file with my survival map, I found that the mod items inside disappeared but could be taken from creation again. So I tried to install the server using forge first B I have studied forge for a long time but successfully installed it. But when I put in mods it crashed But mods can be installed on the server   我和我的朋友們正在mod為了生存 但是最近我想用cmd打開伺服器而不是把單人遊戲公開 但是當我使用兩種方法啟動伺服器時,我遇到了兩個問題 首先AI使用forge安裝伺服器檔案使用原始伺服器jar 建立伺服器已成功安裝,mod 也已成功載入。但是當我用我的生存地圖替換世界文件後,我發現裡面的mod物品消失了,但可以再次從創建中取出。所以我嘗試先使用forge安裝伺服器,BI研究了forge很久但成功安裝了它。但是當我安裝 mods 時它崩潰了但是 mods 可以安裝在伺服器上 我和我的朋友正在mod生存 但最近我想使用cmd開啟伺服器而不是單人遊戲公開   但是當我使用了兩種方法開啟伺服器時遇到了兩種問題   第1個A 我使用了forge安裝伺服器文件 在使用原版伺服器jar建立    伺服器安裝成功 mod也順利加載  但是我將我的生存地圖替換世界文件後發現裡面的mod物品消失了但可以再次從創造拿取  所以我嘗試使用forge安裝伺服器   第2個B forge我研究了很久但也成功安裝了 但是當我放入 mods 之後發生了崩潰 但是mods在1A伺服器上是可以安裝的 Ps 我用谷歌翻譯 so    
    • That’s probably not it because as I stated I’ve done it before. I did it like deadass 10 - 20 times when trying to learn to make this mod pack because I kept wanting to reset my profiles and such. So it definitely works, it looks like maybe the creephosting files were the things that couldn’t be reached I tried reading the crash log
    • I don't know if this is the right place or not, but I have put together a custom modpack and I am in need of others to help me. It's a questing modpack with a lore book i'm currently writing out through Patchouli, and i am in need of somebody who will assist me in making the quests for the pack. It's a Zombie apocalypse modpack inspired by Deceasedcraft  with a tinge of magic and RPG mechanics via Mine and slash. Is there anybody willing to assist me as i'm one person building a modpack I could also use help with optimizations since that's not really my strong suite.
