[1.12.2] Creating a Custom 3D .OBJ Model for Minecraft


PulseBeat_02

Recommended Posts

Hi, I wanted to create a block from a .obj file and put it into Minecraft. I tried searching up on the internet about this, and I found some results, but they were for 1.8, 1.8.9, etc, and not for 1.12.2. If I use the code for 1.8, 1.8.9, etc, eclipse would give off a bunch of weird errors. I would like to have a detailed step - to - step explanation on how to do this.

Thanks!

I made sure my class names, imports, were all correct

They are not correct, otherwise there will not be the red wiggly lines under it.

These are syntax errors. These are irrelevant to your model.

Use your IDE to find out what are wrong and how to fix them (hover your cursor over the errors).

 

Moreover, you should be using GlStateManager instead of GL11.

Not true, then why is the return TileEntityKingMammoth giving off an error and this part

"        super(Material.SNOW);
        setBlockTextureName(Reference.MOD_ID + ":" + name);
        setBlockBounds(0.25F, 0, 0.25F, 0.75F, 0.5F, 0.75F);
        setBlockName(name);
        GameRegistry.registerBlock(this, name);"

giving off an error. (Everything else i get)

Additionally, some of the methods are giving off errors even though they are correct. For example, I had to remove a couple @Override annotations to get rid of some erorrs.

Here is the new code after editing some:

1. Please, check your syntax. I spotted at least 3 syntax errors from a quick glance.

2. When your IDE gives you an error, you should read the error and fix the error properly instead of simply removing @Override. The Override annotation is giving an error because the method being overridden does not exists. Removing the @Override will fix the compile-time error, but meanwhile will make the method useless.

3. Things change. The method and field names in 1.8 do not necessarily exist in 1.12.2. An example would be TileEntity#worldObj (1.8), which is changed to TileEntity#world in 1.12.2. Again, use your IDE.

4. Stop registering your items inside the constructor. Initialize and register them in the appropriate event.

 

My suggestion would be:

1. Review Java. You need to get the basic syntaxes right.

2. Names change between versions. You should use your IDE to figure out the names for methods and fields in 1.12.2.

Sentences like "Line xxx is giving an error" is not specific. You need to read the error, which is trying to tell you what is wrong.

1. Review Java.

2. Check out online documentations to familiarize yourself with the new naming (optional).

3. Fix your errors by reading the errors. They should tell you exactly what you should do, like "XXX is not a method in the parent class" means the method XXX does not exists anymore, and thus you should not be trying to override it.

 

Or even better... Check out other people's example code! Yay!

Yes. Delete them and find the 1.12.2 equivalents by using the IDE or online documentations.
