Block texture not loading when placed


Recommended Posts

I'm new to modding and just tried to create my first block. The block showed up successfully in my inventory as an item but when I placed the block it shows up as the black and magenta missing texture:


 I don't understand how this is possible because my models/item/tutorial_block.json file just redirects to the models/block/tutorial_block.json file like this:

    "parent": "bigbadboybob1:block/tutorial_block"

Here is my models/block/tutorial_block.json file:

    "parent": "block/cube_all",
    "textures": {
        "all": "bigbadboybob1:block/tutorial_block"

Here is my main java file for reference:

Got this in the console when launching the mod:

[m[33m[14:25:09] [Server-Worker-3/WARN] [minecraft/ModelBakery]: Exception loading blockstate definition: bigbadboybob1:blockstates/tutorial_block.json: java.io.FileNotFoundException: bigbadboybob1:blockstates/tutorial_block.json
[m[33m[14:25:09] [Server-Worker-3/WARN] [minecraft/ModelBakery]: Exception loading blockstate definition: 'bigbadboybob1:blockstates/tutorial_block.json' missing model for variant: 'bigbadboybob1:tutorial_block#'

This is my blockstates file:

    "variants": {
        "": { "model": "bigbadboybob1:block/tutorial_block" }

Thanks everyone for replying I have looked over my directories multiple times and didn't see anything wrong but in case there is anything I'm missing, here is a screenshot of my directory:

Do you have a block item setup? If so is the texture applying to that?
