Topic category: Help with modding (Java Edition)
I'm sorry I had to create a separate thread but for some reason I can't reply to any existing posts (or at least I can't find a way to)
the only way i can think of doing this is to make an aniamated model in blockbench and export it into MCreator. there are plenty of tutorials out there to help you learn. it might take a bit of work, but you can definitely make what you want that way.
Can you please refer me to an up-to-date tutorial? I read things about using a GeckoLib plugin for Blockbench and MCreator, but I think the plugin hasn't been updated for 2021.1 yet.
