Some mods have types of glass (as an example) that will connect and remove borders if 2 of them are placed next to eachother (eg clear glass). How can I make my textures remove borders once they're placed next to eachother?

You need to download this mod first: https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/ctm

There are some video tutorials for creating connected textures, like this one: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=uUxozmSVn0U

When I added connected textures to my mods for the first time, there were no video tutorials, so I had to read the official guide. If you prefer reading than watching a video, you can read the guides. Don't worry, they are easy to understand and require no programming knowledge: https://github.com/Chisel-Team/ConnectedTexturesMod/wiki

If you already know how to create custom animated textures it will be very easy to learn connected textures :)

That's cool, but Optifine has issues with some mods, no? I think ctm also supports emissive textures. Very nice though

I can't work CTM. MCreator mods don't conflict with optifine, as far as I'm concerned.
