[1.5] Issue involving textures, TileEntity, and mixed slabs

Here's a screenshot of the mod for context:

Each double slab is created using a single blockID with textures assigned through a TileEntity. The main issue that I'm having is that all of the textures on the sides of the blocks are pre-made:

Because there are an exponentially large number of slab combinations added, I would much rather set things up so that the textures are created while the game is running. Ideally I would merge two preexisting textures on top of one another and use an alpha layer used to "erase" half of the top texture. Unfortunately I have very little experience with graphics programming, and so I have no idea how to start work on this, if it's the best approach to use, or if it's even possible to do in Java.

 

Please let me know if there's any other information I can provide. Any help will be greatly appreciated  :)

yeah it is, though if you have more then 16 different combinason youll have to use tile entities. then just use a tile entity special renderer and you're good to go

At the moment I already have the combinations set up with a basic TileEntity, and have the textures assigned by using an instance of IBlockAccess from the getBlockTexture(...) method in my block class. Will this work, or do I need a TileEntitySpecialRenderer in order to combine multiple images into a single texture?

id honestly suggest TESR as it is way easier to do then making texture on the spot.

Sorry if I'm missing something obvious, but I've been looking into it and I'm still completely lost as to how I can start writing the code for merging textures together. From your posts I'm guessing that there are methods I can use that are accessible with TESR? Or is there a different approach to the problem that using TESR would help with?

 

Edit: Scratch that. I'm guessing that the best way to implement the process of merging textures is to tie it to the rendering of the block, and so I need to set up a TESR for that purpose. As far as the merging itself, I need to study GL11 to find the correct methods to use. Is this correct?

well, yeah, but you wouldnt require a LOT of openGL. just a little, you could mostly do this using the tessellator. but with a TESR youwouldnt "merge texture" you would just sorta render 2 half slab on top of each other

    • I am using a modified MeleeAttackGoal to make an entity pick a random button, go to it and press it. But after a while it just stops and stares at the current button target. I found out that it's just staring at it because it's too far away to press it.  And its's not moving because the current path in the mob navigation is "done". If I move it further away it recalculates a non weird path and fixes itself. If I push it towards the button so it can press it, it sets the target to null, so it once again calculates a new path and fixes itself. What is causing the path to be "done"? And how can I fix this? This is the tick method in the custom goal class: public void tick() { if (mob.buttonTarget != null) { float x = mob.buttonTarget.getX(); float y = mob.buttonTarget.getY(); float z = mob.buttonTarget.getZ(); float hx = x + 0.5f; float hy = y + 0.5f; float hz = z + 0.5f; mob.getLookControl().setLookAt(hx, hy, hz, 30.0F, 30.0F); double distSqr = mob.distanceToSqr(hx, hy, hz); ticksUntilNextPathRecalculation = Math.max(ticksUntilNextPathRecalculation - 1, 0); if ((followingTargetEvenIfNotSeen || hasLineOfSight(mob, mob.buttonTarget)) && ticksUntilNextPathRecalculation <= 0 && ((pathedTargetX == 0.0D && pathedTargetY == 0.0D && pathedTargetZ == 0.0D) || mob.buttonTarget.distSqr(new Vec3i(pathedTargetX, pathedTargetY, pathedTargetZ)) >= 1.0D || mob.getRandom().nextFloat() < 0.05F)) { pathedTargetX = hx; pathedTargetY = hy; pathedTargetZ = hz; ticksUntilNextPathRecalculation = 4 + mob.getRandom().nextInt(7); if (distSqr > 1024.0D) ticksUntilNextPathRecalculation += 10; else if (distSqr > 256.0D) ticksUntilNextPathRecalculation += 5; Path newPath = mob.getNavigation().createPath(mob.buttonTarget, 0); if (newPath != null && !newPath.canReach()) { mob.buttonTarget = null; return; } if (!mob.getNavigation().moveTo(newPath, speedModifier)) ticksUntilNextPathRecalculation += 15; ticksUntilNextPathRecalculation = adjustedTickDelay(ticksUntilNextPathRecalculation); } ticksUntilNextAttack = Math.max(getTicksUntilNextAttack() - 1, 0); checkAndPerformAttack(mob.buttonTarget, distSqr); } }  
    • As of Forge version 44.1.5 and above, Minecraft has started crashing whenever I played it with the Create mod. Without any mods, it loads normally, but when I put in a mod, like MrCrayfish's furniture mod for example, it fails to read the mod properly. Basically I press play and it loads. When the launcher closes, it opens back up again with an Exit Code 1 error, stating that the game crashed due to an unexpected error. Here's my latest.log for more information. https://pastebin.com/pUPBjpbr  
    • The files are harmed by system flaws and glitches. Additionally, the installation procedure might cause files to be lost. The game is so terminated, and an exit code 1 error is displayed. Therefore, attempt a game reinstall.
    • Hello there!  I'm hosting a Minecraft Tekxit PI server on Minecraft 1.12.2 on my computer and I have a little issue. Everything was going great until one day my light in my house went down while a friend was inside the server. The server crashed and when I came back 2 chunks swapped but everything seemed normal. Fastforward in time my friend who was inside the server tried to come back in it but everti-me he tries to join he cannot do it and there is a crash in the server logs. If any other friend tries to join they can, but, that friend that was inside the server when that occurred cannot join. I tried rebooting, rebooting my modem, deleting his player data to start over and nothing works. I'm leaving the crash logs here. Thank you!!! ----------------------------------------------- CRASH LOGS   [10:27:10] [Netty Server IO #1/INFO]: Transforming class 'gu', alias 'net.minecraft.network.NettyCompressionDecoder' [10:27:10] [Netty Server IO #1/INFO]: Scanning method 'decode(Lio/netty/channel/ChannelHandlerContext;Lio/netty/buffer/ByteBuf;Ljava/util/List;)V' [10:27:10] [Netty Server IO #1/INFO]: Patching constant (java.lang.Integer) 2097152 [10:27:10] [Netty Server IO #1/INFO]: Patching constant (java.lang.Integer) 2097152 [10:27:10] [Netty Server IO #1/INFO]: [com.creativemd.creativecore.transformer.CreativeTransformer:transform:49]: [littletiles] Patched net.minecraft.network.NettyCompressionDecoder ...
