Animated Blocks and Textures
Wed, 09/28/2016 - 01:53

Hey guys! again sorry if this question was already solved, if so plz point me the link.

 

So i was wondering how to:

 

1) Put Animated Textures on a Custom Block (like a monitor with a animated png on it) - i know MCrayFisher cant handle it, but i cant find a easy 3D Editor that export .json (for MCreator 170), any ideas or program i could use?

2) Make a animated block (like a small windmill); does it work like Mobs on techne, how can i do it? (cant find tutorials for this)

 

thank you all!

I know this may be a bit convoluted, but have you considered making multiples of that model with different textures and having the blocks change between each other with an update tick event? That way it would cycle through your different textures but still appear to be the same model in the same place. 

Like I said, its convoluted, but I used a similar method to good effect with mCreator for minecraft 1.7.10 and it looks good. (Mine was a bubbling liquid/cauldron block that would trigger an event to replace that block with a similar block with bubbles in a different position on UpdateTick, then repeat)

yes your way would be good for 'animated blocks' maybe, like do 4 diferent blocks of a windmill, with different blade positions than do, as you said, the ticks. I know Blender export what you need, and you can prb do animated blocks there, im not sure about animated textures on custom blocks thou

I know its possible with blender, just not sure if its possible to do with minecraft lol. I know 1.7.10 supported moving textures for items by uploading multiple .png images and that there was a way to edit the source code of blocks to do the same thing, but so much has changed with minecrafts code that I'm not sure if it could be done the same way.

The method I mentioned is tedious as all get out, but at least it works :/

yes i think im gonna try your method for a Cooko clock (2 models; Cukoo In, Cukoo Out) and some sound to spicy things up :D

However there is a way off corse to do true animated models, as minecraft off course support it (a lot of mods did it) and a windmill as custom animated block should be possible, the only thing we need to figger here is if MCREATOR support the block animation; maybe it does with just few parts (like the mobs), the problem is that we cannot use Techne for blocks anymore only mobs.. so the true question is; 

what software we use to make the animated blocks to MCreator? (must be a animated .json file)

......Blender :/

Although, I did some digging and did find this. I havent had time to check it out, but it seems to be what we're looking for in that it exports animated json files

Ok so i made my first model on Blender.. its a complex program, but you can learn the basic with no problems... i made a small windmill, with a animation, the thing is the animation is not 'playing' on minecraft, im gonna google for it and let u guys know, but the model itself is no problem to insert on minecraft.

@#8 To what file format did you export the windmill, and did you animate it in Blender?

The link I posted earlier allows you to animate .json models, unless you wanted to code the animation into the .json yourself manually which can be tedious.

I'm not too sure about how animations made in blender port to minecraft/mcreator as I'm not terribly familiar with the programs' animation features.
