Best way to texture blocks


Faistman

Recommended Posts

So I am quite new to this but Im getting along and learning pretty well so excuse me if my wording isn't perfect.

 

I am creating a mod that uses minecraft textures to texture the blocks. 

My block state for most blocks is: 

{
    "forge_marker": 1,
    "defaults": {
        "model": "cube_all",
        "textures": {"all": "minecraft:blocks/glazed_terracotta_silver"}
    },
    "variants": {
        "normal": [{}],
        "inventory": [{}]
    }
}

 

This works great until I get to blocks like logs, leaves, granite,  etc. 

Could someone enlighten me on the best way to texture blocks with different variants and sides? I read through the forge docs and used it and vanilla code as an example. I can get the log to show the texture in the hotbar and when ]\

thrown on the ground but not when placed.

Thanks!

It depends on the block, i.e. what properties it has. Usually just using the vanilla block states instead of the forge block states is easier.

Well even when I switched back and did it with a blockstate, a block, and a item json and use all the vanilla info I get this result. Which I BELIEVE just from my slow learning here lol, means the blockstate is off?

Inventory and dropped item are textured fine. 

 

{
    "variants": {
        "axis=y":  { "model": "minecraft:blocks/acacia_log" },
        "axis=z":   { "model": "minecraft:blocks/acacia_log", "x": 90 },
        "axis=x":   { "model": "minecraft:blocks/acacia_log", "x": 90, "y": 90 },
        "axis=none": { "model": "minecraft:blocks/acacia_bark" }
    }
}

This is what is wrong. It should just be minecraft:acacia_log

Correct, typically.

VANILLA MINECRAFT CLASSES ARE THE BEST RESOURCES WHEN MODDING

Exactly what I thought but that made no difference. json parses fine as well. Very odd. 

Post your log it should throw an error with information necessary to correct this.

Bunch of errors regarding other blocks but I haven't gotten to them yet. Acacia Log is the only one I have the 3 jsons in place for at the moment. 

 

Now this could be my issue but I'm not positive. If these blocks are purely for decoration will I need a BlockLog class or are they fine just using my BlockBase as is?

All blocks act like stone pretty much with no attempt at retaining any material properties.

Using a BlockBase class is an anti pattern (What if you want to extend another class?). Composition over inheritance is an OOP technique that you should be using. If you don’t need the functionalities of a class, don’t use it.

Thanks for using GitHub Gist! It makes it so easy to read your log and give you feedback.

However, “Suppressed additional 115 model loading errors for domain bb”, your log is swamped by errors for blockstates that you haven’t started to try and fix yet. Your mod id needs to be longer than 2 characters, what if another mod has the same mod id? You have 64 characters for your modid, use them!

Thank you for all the good info! I did indeed figure this out by creating a GlassBlock class and extending GlassBlock from Minecraft. 

Excellent tip on the modID I'll be sure to change that before publishing the mod. 

I prefer gist and try to get all my users to report bugs with gist if possible. So much nicer than pastebin. 

I had textured all the basic blocks with one texture first but all blocks were in my ModBlocks so it was tossing a lot of errors. Slowly chipping away at it though.
