Item/Block Rendering Issues
Wed, 01/23/2019 - 03:17

Hello!

Everytime i try to go into the JSON files for blocks and items to change how they render (IE: changinga block to have an item style render in your hand, or an item rendered as being held like a tool) it works for about 2-3 sessions before MCreator just goes into the JSON files and reverts it back to the original format, erasing the modifications I made to it...

How fix?

You can't modify these json files because they are autogenerated. If you want to have custom JSON, make custom JSON model and set parameters there and MCreator will use these parameters.

Ok, nevermind.

I still can't get it to work, everytime I use custom models, it tells me to "Select Texture" and then doesn't use it. I also cannot figure out how to set the block and item model seperatly, as in making a block use a certain model, but a different one as an "Item". both of these are things I can do easily by altering MCreator's auto-generated JSON files, but they always revert themselves after 1-2 sessions. Is there any way to get MCreator to stop overriding it's auto-generated files? It would make more sense for them to auto-generate and not re-generate them every few sessions...
