[1.12] don't use json files for textures


Recommended Posts

Hi, is there a way to specify wich textures to use without the use of json files ?

personally writing tons of json files just don't makes any sense to me, if you could also put in in the [CustomBlock] method.

 

I was more thinking in the form of:

if( condition ){
	/* use [this] texture on [this face]*/
}

 

thanks in advance

Nope.

do I also have to specify wich models to use in the blockstate json file or is it also possible to drirectly refer to the textures themselves in the file ?

like:

 

{
    "multipart": [
    
        {   "apply": {

                   "north": { "bm:normal_glass_middle" },
            }

        }
        
        {   
            "when": { "condition": "true" },
            { "apply": {

                    "north": { "texture": "modid:awsome_texture" },

                    "south": {  "texture": "modid:another_awsome_texture"
                }

            }

        }
         
    ]
}

You will still need models. You may be able to define those models in the blockstate file though (I have no proof of this, and I think it’s unlikely, but MAY be possible).

You should take a look at Forge’s blockstate format. Personally I prefer vanilla because of its simplicity but Forge definitely has more features & potential.

Forge states are good for things like Fences, which have 4 different on-off properties. Vanilla format has to list out each one (so, 16 entries) whereas with Forge you can list out 4 and Forge will do the heavy lifting.

 

For example, this block I have:

https://github.com/Draco18s/ReasonableRealism/blob/master/src/main/resources/assets/expindustry/blockstates/machine_foundry.json#L18-L33

 

With a vanilla state file I'd have to list out all 8 combinations manually:

north {rotation}, lit {submodel}
north {rotation}, unlit
east {rotation}, lit {submodel}
east {rotation}, unlit
west {rotation}, lit {submodel}
west {rotation}, unlit
south {rotation}, lit {submodel}
south {rotation}, unlit

Look at how many times the {submodel} had to be retyped! And each rotation had to be specified twice as well.

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.

You could do it that way, but Vanilla provides "multipart", "when", "OR" & "AND" which you can use to achieve the same functionality

like:

To answer this question you do and always have to specify a model, however you do not need to specify the textures within the model, that can be done in the blockstate file with the forge blockstate system. This allows for easy creation of basic blocks IE fully square ones. You only have to refer to the vanilla models and specify what texture(s) to use in the blockstate, allowing for simple blocks only needing one Json file. including the ItemBlock with the inventory variant.

    • How do I go about storing custom player data such as a mana count for each individual player? I believe it has something to do with NBT however I can't find much on it for 1.16 Forge Modding.
    • Hello, Ive been having issues downloading forge 1.16, as the installer just says: "The directory is missing a launcher profile. (see image 1)" I have launched the launcher, and the files even show up in the file explorer (see image 2). So, I look in the folders, and there are no files in any of the folders that should have files for Minecraft (see images 3 and 4) I dont know of any way to this so please help
    • Hi, mi name is Nestor. I was creating a server, (magma 1.12.2) and I came up with the idea of implementing a "Radio" the server is a hybrid server, it allows spigot and forge, but I was seeing many ways to add a radio type and the only ways is to reproduce the sound directly, and What I would like is that, for example, the user will turn off the radio and stop listening, but when the radio starts it seems that the radio is live, that is, it does not pause or the sound is removed, it simply no longer listen to the player, I saw that the only forms both easy as a / playsound or with classes, what I need is to see if someone knows any class / api that helps me do that, both spigot and forge, or any idea of how to achieve that in Minecraft :C
    • My issue is that my server crashes 2-3 a day and I can’t figure out how to solve it    Here is the main portion of the crash log: ---- Minecraft Crash Report ---- // You're mean.
