Changing Texture folders

Hey there folks! Back once again, Will I solve this right after I post on the forum, Probably!

But I do have an issue, 

You see my mod has a LOT of textures, over 70 thousand atm, and probably more like 500 thousand once I'm done with the first version, and due to my large amount of textures anytime I click the texture button for items in the mcreator software, it freezes :(. big sad I know.

SO! I tried to move my textures outside of the assets/textures/item/ folder, even into a subfolder in the /item/ folder is fine, butttttttttttttt when using custom model data it doesn't load these textures, If I directly change the .json to have the subfolder as the MAIN texture it works fine, but if its an override texture, It no longer works, any thoughts?

(also I'm using this method because I need a lot of tools to have more than one texture and currently mcreator only supports plain items as such)

TYVM FOR ALL FEEDBACK

Holy cow, and I thought I had a lot of textures. Oof. 

Even if you 're doing subfolders, I can't imagine replacing all the file references manually is going to be practical. The custom model thing probably just has to do with the models themselves; if you manually change the location of texture files, it won't change the directories in the models, you would also need to edit those manually. 

Not sure what to tell ya- best of luck man!

Oh hey there Mindthemoods, you're the only other person who i've seen with a large texture amount like my own, I made a python script to generate the json file edits for me, just because of the fact that yeah, its a lot. subfolders don't work which is a bit upsetting lol, I hope that mcreator will allow texture atlas changes in its next update, would be a huge help.

Oh man, I have been there. Ran into a similar thing with End Biomes. Took me ages to realize I was doing it properly and the plugin was bugged. Hope it works out!
