[1.16.2] Transparent blocks with baked models are invisible when using OptiFine


Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

I have some problems with the RenderLayers when testing my mod together with OptiFine. Some backstory: I made blocks, that can take on the model of any block using a tileentity that "stores" said block, and I also created baked models for all of them. It worked fine for solid blocks but not for transparent blocks, as they lose their transparency (see below). So I decided to change the RenderLayer to "translucent" using 

RenderTypeLookup.setRenderLayer(Registration.FRAMEBLOCK.get(), RenderType.getTranslucent());

where FRAMEBLOCK is the corresponding RegistryObject and "Registration" is the class where I register all my blocks and items.

Right now it looks like that: (below you can see the "empty" frame blocks, namely cube, slab and stairs)



You can right-click them to change the texture to the texture of the block you're holding. As I said, I used baked models to achieve the "mimicking"-effect.


As you can see, it works fine, but only without OptiFine. When I use OptiFine, all my blocks are invisible and you can only see the black boundary box. I guess, it has something to do with the render layers, because I changed the RenderLayer for the "cube"-block to "solid", and the model is being rendered, again (but without transparency, see below)


(Same three blocks, but I changed the RenderLayer-Type to "solid" for the cube block, the other two blocks - glass slab and stairs - are invisible, probably because of them being "translucent" and I guess OptiFine changes something how baked models are rendered)


Now my question is: what can I do to make it work when using OptiFine? I already tried using "cutout" and "cutout-mipped" render types, but it wont change anything, the blocks stay invisible...

Any help is appreciated.

Regards, Manu

Complain to Optifine for not being compatible with Forge.
