[1.10.2] How to add custom MapColor (Solved! I am dumb)


Recommended Posts

I am trying to create a darkened version of mycelium and I found that the vanilla MapColors are not the right color. I have no trouble making an instance of MapColor but it just appears transparent on the map. 



package drmeepster.evilshrooms.util;

import java.lang.reflect.Constructor;
import java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException;

import net.minecraft.block.material.MapColor;

public final class Util {
	private Util(){}
	public static int getNextMapColor(){
		//Will only be -1 if array is full
		int out = -1;
		for(int i = 0; i < MapColor.COLORS.length; i++){
			if(MapColor.COLORS[i] == null){
			out = i;
		return out;
	public static MapColor newMapColor(int index, int color){
		Constructor<MapColor> constr;
			constr = MapColor.class.getDeclaredConstructor(int.class, int.class);
		}catch (NoSuchMethodException | SecurityException e) {
			return null;
		try {
			return constr.newInstance(index, color);
		} catch (InstantiationException | IllegalAccessException | IllegalArgumentException | InvocationTargetException e) {
			return null;

    public static final TabEvilShroom EVIL_SHROOM_TAB = new TabEvilShroom();

    public void preInit(FMLPreInitializationEvent event){
    	colorShadowMycelium = Util.newMapColor(Util.getNextMapColor(), 0x281538);
    public void init(FMLInitializationEvent event){

    public void postInit(FMLPostInitializationEvent event){
