[SOLVED] - [1.15.1] Rendering - How to determine "canRenderInLayer" based on block state.


Recommended Posts

So I started the update from 1.14.4 to 1.15.1 and got stuck pretty early with the rendering changes. I have a block which changes it's visual state when it receives a redstone signal. 

This doesn't seem to work well with the new code layout.


I found that I have to use RenderTypeLookup#setRenderLayer now instead of overriding a method on my block, good.

However while reviewing that class (RenderTypeLookup) I noticed the "canRenderInLayer" method does nothing with the block state passed in except get the block associated with the state.


client setup method

	public void clientSetup(FMLClientSetupEvent clientSetupEvent) {
		RenderTypeLookup.setRenderLayer(ModRegistry.BoundaryBlock(), BlockBoundary::canRenderInLayer);


RenderTypeLookup#canRenderInLayer - This is called in chunk rendering.

   public static boolean canRenderInLayer(BlockState state, RenderType type) {
      Block block = state.getBlock();
      if (block instanceof LeavesBlock) {
         return field_228388_c_ ? type == RenderType.func_228641_d_() : type == RenderType.func_228639_c_();
      } else {
         java.util.function.Predicate<RenderType> rendertype;
         synchronized (RenderTypeLookup.class) {
             rendertype = blockRenderChecks.get(block);
         return rendertype != null ? rendertype.test(type) : type == RenderType.func_228639_c_();



	 * Queries if this block should render in a given layer.
	public static boolean canRenderInLayer(Object layer) {
		// NOTE: This code is in a partial state. Need to find out how to get block state to determine if the block should be rendered this pass.
		boolean powered = false;// state.get(Powered);

		RenderState renderState = (RenderState)layer;

		// first part is translucent, second is for solid.
		return (layer == RenderType.func_228645_f_() && !powered) || (layer == RenderType.func_228639_c_() && powered);



I was using the canRenderInLayer method as a shortcut so the model wouldn't have to be loaded (trying to be efficient).

So I guess my question would be. Should I even worry about this or is there a hook or something that I can use instead?


Note: I have another block which becomes invisible if it receives a redstone signal (changes block state) or if it's interacted with (it phases out and then back in).


Any help or ideas would be appreciated!


Thank you!
