How can i rotate models around z axis in blockstates?

Hello

I´m working on a mod, that makes the pumpkin and melon blocks laying on the side, as long as they are attached to their stems.

I noticed, that the stem goes to the middle of the vertical side of the block, but the texture with the "stem-dot" in the center is ontop of the model.

That looks not very realistic

 

The java-stuff is ready.

i made extra block classes for the attached melon and pumpkin, to have blockstates (unable to add them to the vanilla-ones for overriding them)

 

But now i have a problem with their blockstates:

If they grow to the north or south, they look fine, with rotating the existing melon and pumpkin models around x (the stem goes exact to the rght spot).

But, if they grow to the east or west, i find no way to rotate the model in theese directions (rotate z does not exist).

I tried rotating x and y, but they appear only x rotated (identical to the north and south ones).

 

How can i rotate the east and west variants in the blockstates correctly?

I don´t want to make a new model extra fot this.

 

My actual blockstate-json:

{
    "variants":
    {
        "facing=north": { "model": "block/melon", "x": 270 },
        "facing=east": { "model": "block/melon", "x": 270, "Y" : 90 },
        "facing=south": { "model": "block/melon", "x": 90 },
        "facing=west": { "model": "block/melon", "x": 90, "Y" : 90 }
    }
}

 

For the pumpkin the same, just with "pumpkin" instead of "melon" in the four lines.

You don't. You use a combination of X rotation and Y rotation.

...what font are you using...no, I don't want to know. That's your problem to deal with. Use a better font.

I am new to modding and facing similar issue.  What I realized is that since Z axis rotation is not supported, using combination of X and Y does not always work.  I think the Block State JSON file always apply X-axis rotation first before Y-axis rotation, but I needed Y-axis to be rotated first before X-axis rotation to get to the texture face I need.  Is this a bug or an intended behavior? Am I missing something?

The game does not recognize a Z axis for rotation because the game world does not distinguish between "north/south" and "east/west" as being unique for the purpose of rendering things (that is, models should be compass orientation agnostic).
