Tried getting help in 2 other locations. Thought maybe someone here would answer.
So I'm debating on making a mod for minecraft, but I got stumped at something.
I have learned that using vanilla textures in your resource pack isn't allowed, makes sense, but what about mods? What if your mod requires something from vanilla minecraft? Can you use vanilla textures with your resource pack?
Very simple example: If I were to make a cosmetic mod, where you craft leather armor and flowers together, can I use the vanilla leather armor texture, and put vanilla texture flowers on it, to create the new cosmetic for the mod? Or do I have to make a completely new leather armor and flower to go with the mod? (which wouldn't look right...)
How does all this work?
