Creating my own RenderType

Recommended Posts

Hey guys.

 

As some of you might know, back in 1.5.2 I did some hacky things with the Piston's getRenderType function, in order to make my top-facing texture rotate based on meta without having to have 4 textures for every block (around 45 blocks total).

 

In 1.6, my functions broke and it stopped working. I figured I could probably fix it, but I decided I'd try another approach first; creating my own render type which does the same thing, but in a better way, using meta in the order I want it to.

 

Now, I found where the getRenderType refers to, copied it, and trimmed it all down so I've got my own class, which, if I'm right, is just be the Piston's render code. I'll trim it and modify it further to be what I need once I can get my block to use it and I can visually see what happens when I change bits.

 

I've done pretty much all of it, and I'm so close I can almost taste it. But, it's not working - I can disable the vanilla Renderer but I can't get the block to use my own one.

 

Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

 

 

UPDATE:

I got it working how it used to work, with the piston's renderer. However, I still want to use my own one if I can. Here's the updated code.

After toying around, I think the issue is really simple, I just can't resolve it.

 

I think what's happening, is because my block is extending Block, it's automatically using the default getRenderType before it can use my getRoadsRenderer, so it's using render type 0 (the default).

 

So, "simple" question; how would I stop it from doing that?

What you probably want is implement ISimpleBlockRenderingHandler in your renderer. Then get a new RenderId by using RenderingRegistry.getNextAvailableRenderId(). Register your Renderer with RenderingRegistry.registerBlockHandler() and you're good to go. Keep in mind that all this should happen in your ClientProxy.

And in my ClientProxy, I've added them like this (Is this correct?)

 

        	RenderingRegistry.getNextAvailableRenderId();
        	RenderingRegistry.registerBlockHandler(new RoadBlockRenderer());

 

To me it still seems like the renderer just isn't being used. Any changes I make to it have no effect so I'm just missing something really simple I'm sure...

 

Here's how it is when using my renderer:

And here's how it renders when using the piston renderer (How it should look.. but it also rotates :P):

Not quite sure I understand... how do I get the int from it?

 

You said it you're self earlier:

 

And in my ClientProxy, I've added them like this (Is this correct?)

 

Code: [select]

        RenderingRegistry.getNextAvailableRenderId();

If you guys dont get it.. then well ya.. try harder...

Oh, the way he said it I was expecting to have to put a physical number somewhere.

 

It's still not working though =/

 

In my block I have:

    public int getRenderType() {
    	return RenderingRegistry.getNextAvailableRenderId();
    }

 

In my rendering handler I have:

@Override
public int getRenderId() {
	return RenderingRegistry.getNextAvailableRenderId();
}

 

And same as before, in my client proxy I have:

        @Override
        public void registerRenderThings() {
        	RenderingRegistry.getNextAvailableRenderId();
        	RenderingRegistry.registerBlockHandler(new RoadBlockRenderer());
        }

 

Is there something else I need to do to register it maybe?

Not to be rude but he has done what all the other posts say. So stop being rube about knowing java.

a) No he has not

b) this is basic java knowledge. If you do not know this, stop modding and learn java first. Thats just the way it is. And I am not rude at all. Just direct.

Seriously, do you know how to write java?

example:

public int someRandomMethod() {
    return 5;
}

 

then somewhere else:

int someVar = someRandomMethod();

What are the contents of someVar?

 

I know most of the basics, from a few books I was given. I'm writing mods in order to help me learn better, because it's more fun than the boring things in the books - I know I'm not the only person who took up modding to learn Java either.

 

I know someVar would be 5. What I don't know is how to transmit from RenderingRegistry.getNextAvailableRenderId(); to getting the actual int, and more importantly which of the three classes I need to do it in. I am of course assuming that because it's getting the next available int, the method is deciding the actual number, not me?

I gotta admit, you are being a little arrogant, but I do know people here get annoyed when people know nothing about Java. It's understandable, but I'm simply not understanding one minor part, and more importantly not understanding which bits go where to make this particular thing work. I've followed what the other posts say to the best of my ability, but if you never try you never learn so hey, I'll keep trying with or without your help.

Here is how I would do it:

In your client proxy make a new int field. On preInit store the result of getNextRenderId() in there. Then make a new method in your CommonProxy and make it return 0 all the time. In the ClientProxy override it to return the stored renderId you got in preInit.

Then in your Block getRenderId call the method you created in your proxies.

Also in you ClientProxy on preInit register your rendering handler with the ID you got.

Note: Only call getNextRenderId() once for every renderer, because it will assign a new RenderId everytime it's called. That's why you need to store the result somewhere.

    • I'm researching the how to create biomes in json. There is a great tool for creating the jsons online. Using the vanilla `river` biome, I want to essentially create a custom disk feature that mixes 3 blocks instead of a single-block provider. Any ideas on where to start with that?
    • I figured out what was wrong ... you can spot it pretty quick most likely: { "type": "minecraft:smelting", "ingredient": { "item": "minecraft:gold_nugget_ore" }, "result": "minecraft:gold_nugget", "experience": 0.25, "cookingtime": 150 }   ... so, after changing `minecraft` to `foundations` for all the custom items and all the recipes work. Well that's what copy/paste will get you. One last question about recipes, though. What does the following json key/value do in the game? "group": "copper_ingot"

    • Is there a way to create a custom map marker for a custom structure/biome (same as a vanilla mansion)?
    • I’ve scrounged the Internet for solutions and found absolutely nothing that has worked for me I have posted my code in a GitHub Repository. I bet the culprit is somewhere in the Container or TileEntity classes (Furnace packages are in blocks/coke_furnace or blocks/foundry) PS I know I’m on 1.12.2 and that it’s not supported I don’t want to update my game or my code. Lol It’s my favorite version and the most widely modded. I don’t plan to release the mod, I’m just customizing my game to my will. I’ll send it to friends but that’s it.
