[SOLVED] Generate textures at runtime

Recommended Posts

I have an item with over 20 different subtypes, and counting. Each of them has a different texture (it's not as bad as it sounds - bear with me). I could pretty easily draw the texture for each of them and add them to the resources folder, but I intend on eventually having several hundreds of them, and I'm no good with drawing programs. Sure, I can make a reasonable texture, but not for hundreds of them.

 

Now, my item is a test tube, and the subtypes are its contents. So I could theoretically have one texture for an empty tube, and just add the contents' colors at runtime. I know how to do this, but I don't know how I would assign them to the items. Can I do this, and how?

If all that changes is the colour of the contents, use a model that extends

builtin/generated

(e.g.

item/generated

or

item/handheld

) with the tube texture as one layer and the white contents texture as another.

 

To colour the contents at runtime, you need to create an implementation of

IItemColor

and register it for your

Item

by calling

ItemColors#registerItemColorHandler

on

Minecraft#getItemColors

in init.

 

IItemColor#getColorFromItemstack

gives you the

ItemStack

and the tint index, which tells you the part of the model that's being coloured. For models that extend

builtin/generated

, the tint index is the layer index (e.g.

"layer0"

is tint index 0). For the contents layer, return the colour in

0xRRGGBB

format (you may want to store the colour of each contents type); for the tube layer, return -1 (white).

 

If the contents actually have separate textures, you'll need to generate the textures and model at runtime. See

ModelDynBucket

for an example of this.

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.

Hi

 

This example project has something very similar to what you've described

https://github.com/TheGreyGhost/MinecraftByExample

See mbe11

 

It's also possible to dynamically create textures, give them a ResourceLocation, and assign them to your item (I last tested that in 1.8 but I think it's still the same). 

Vanilla examples are with DynamicTexture and in particular in MapItemRenderer for generating a texture, which you can then stitch into the texture sheet using TextureStitchEvent.  mbe50 has an example of stitching, used for Particles.

    • I have a problem, I am trying to put two different effects to two different armors but when I run it only the emerald armor effect works. This is the code public class ModArmorItem extends ArmorItem{ private static final Map<ArmorMaterial, MobEffectInstance> MATERIAL_TO_EFFECT_MAP = (new ImmutableMap.Builder<ArmorMaterial, MobEffectInstance>()) .put(ModArmorMaterials.EMERALD, new MobEffectInstance(MobEffects.HERO_OF_THE_VILLAGE,200, 1,false,false, true)) .put(ModArmorMaterials.OBSIDIAN, new MobEffectInstance(MobEffects.FIRE_RESISTANCE,200, 1,false,false, true)).build(); public ModArmorItem(ArmorMaterial pMaterial, Type pType, Properties pProperties) { super(pMaterial, pType, pProperties); } @Override public void onArmorTick(ItemStack stack, Level world, Player player){ if (!world.isClientSide()) { if (hasFullSuitOfArmorOn(player)) { evaluateArmorEffects(player); } } } private void evaluateArmorEffects(Player player) { for (Map.Entry<ArmorMaterial,MobEffectInstance> entry : MATERIAL_TO_EFFECT_MAP.entrySet()){ ArmorMaterial mapArmorMaterial = entry.getKey(); MobEffectInstance mapStatusEffect = entry.getValue(); if (hasCorrectArmorOn(mapArmorMaterial, player)) { addStatusEffectForMaterial(player, mapArmorMaterial, mapStatusEffect); } } } private void addStatusEffectForMaterial(Player player, ArmorMaterial mapArmorMaterial, MobEffectInstance mapStatusEffect) { boolean hasPlayerEffect = player.hasEffect(mapStatusEffect.getEffect()); if (hasCorrectArmorOn(mapArmorMaterial, player) && !hasPlayerEffect) { player.addEffect(new MobEffectInstance(mapStatusEffect)); } } private boolean hasCorrectArmorOn(ArmorMaterial material, Player player) { for (ItemStack armorStack : player.getInventory().armor){ if (!(armorStack.getItem() instanceof ArmorItem)) { return false; } } ArmorItem helmet = ((ArmorItem)player.getInventory().getArmor(3).getItem()); ArmorItem breastplace = ((ArmorItem)player.getInventory().getArmor(2).getItem()); ArmorItem leggins = ((ArmorItem)player.getInventory().getArmor(1).getItem()); ArmorItem boots = ((ArmorItem)player.getInventory().getArmor(0).getItem()); return helmet.getMaterial() == material && breastplace.getMaterial() == material && leggins.getMaterial() == material && boots.getMaterial() == material; } private boolean hasFullSuitOfArmorOn(Player player){ ItemStack helmet = player.getInventory().getArmor(3); ItemStack breastplace = player.getInventory().getArmor(2); ItemStack leggins = player.getInventory().getArmor(1); ItemStack boots = player.getInventory().getArmor(0); return !helmet.isEmpty() && !breastplace.isEmpty() && !leggins.isEmpty() && !boots.isEmpty(); } } Also when I place two effects on the same armor, the game crashes. Here is the crash file. The code is the same, only this part is different   private static final Map<ArmorMaterial, MobEffectInstance> MATERIAL_TO_EFFECT_MAP = (new ImmutableMap.Builder<ArmorMaterial, MobEffectInstance>()) .put(ModArmorMaterials.EMERALD, new MobEffectInstance(MobEffects.HERO_OF_THE_VILLAGE,200, 1,false,false, true)) .put(ModArmorMaterials.EMERALD, new MobEffectInstance(MobEffects.FIRE_RESISTANCE,200, 1,false,false, true)).build(); I hope you guys can help me. Thanks.
