Entity Model Texture Issues


Recommended Posts

So, I am pretty new to modding and I made an entity model for a mob and everything works except for some of the texture. The ears and hood have transparent sections in the texture .png but when it renders in game it shows the transparent parts of the texture as a solid color. Am I supposed to do something special to make the transparent parts of the texture transparent?

Yes you do need to do something different.  The "RenderTyper" determines how your textures will be drawn.

For example the Slimes have both a solid layer and a transparent (alpha blending) layer.  Have a look at SlimeRenderer and SlimeGelLayer for more inspiration, especially this bit

         IVertexBuilder ivertexbuilder = bufferIn.getBuffer(RenderType.getEntityTranslucent(this.getEntityTexture(entitylivingbaseIn)));

Browsing through RenderType will show you the various types of rendering that Vanilla uses for entities.
