[1.14.4] Custom signs

Daniel Rollins

Recommended Posts


I am trying to make a custom sign but it isn't working. I'm not really trying to make a fully custom sign, I just want to have a new additional sign that uses a different texture but behaves the same as the regular signs. (I don't want to override the textures of the regular signs because I want them too). The 2 problems I have with my sign are: 1. No texture (not sure where the texture for signs is declared but blockstate and model jsons do not have them and I haven't been able to find them in code), 2. When placing the sign, it doesn't open the sign GUI.

The way I coded it was as follows:

Registered blocks:

MyBlocks.metal_sign = new StandingSignBlock(Block.Properties.create(Material.WOOD).doesNotBlockMovement().hardnessAndResistance(1.0F).sound(SoundType.WOOD)).setRegistryName(location("metal_sign")),
MyBlocks.metal_wall_sign = new WallSignBlock(Block.Properties.create(Material.WOOD).doesNotBlockMovement().hardnessAndResistance(1.0F).sound(SoundType.WOOD)).setRegistryName(location("metal_wall_sign"))

Registered item:

MyItems.metal_sign = new SignItem((new Item.Properties()).maxStackSize(16).group(ItemGroup.DECORATIONS), MyBlocks.metal_sign, MyBlocks.metal_wall_sign).setRegistryName(MyBlocks.metal_sign.getRegistryName())         

Created blockstate json for metal_sign & metal_wall_sign, created model json for metal_sign (I did this exactly like how acacia signs, oak signs, etc are done), created model item json as well.

I found the sign textures in textures/entities/signs and tried putting mine in the same folder (both under minecraft and under my mod's folder), but that didn't help. I get no errors in the debug log so I'm really confused why this isn't working. I did verify (using data get block) that my invisible sign does have a tile entity of the right type. Any help would be appreciated.

You need to show more of your code, preferably as a working git repo

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.


Exception: If you do not understand Java, I WILL NOT HELP YOU and your thread will get locked.


DO NOT PM ME WITH PROBLEMS. No help will be given.
