How to make banners (the whole block, not the pattern)
Tue, 09/01/2020 - 15:41

Hello,

I was wondering how to create banner blocks, but not the customizable pattern, but the whole block itself, with the hoist and stuff. Basically, I want to create new coloured banners with colours that don't originally exist in the game but that exist in my mod, which adds new dyes, wool, glasses and concretes. I don't know if there is an option to make the "cloth" part of my new banner floating in the wind, or if I can make a block which is two blocks wide. I was planning to create my own model on a dedicated software, but I don't know if this will work, as I fail to have the same numbers of pixel as the original banner block has.

Your help is welcome, thanks!

I am a little confused, are you saying you want to mix your new dyes with minecraft's vanilla banner? cause if that is the case then you will need custom code as MCreator does not (and cannot due to legal reasons) have the ability to do this, you could make your own banner model but i'm afraid thats all i can do.

I don't know what legal problems this would have- mods edit vanilla systems all the time. However, you are right that this isn't even close to being possible in MCreator. You'd have to make your own system to substitute the vanilla one from scratch.

Thanks for responding.

I'm afraid that I will not be able to create code from scratch. I mean, I know nothing to coding, and even less in coding video games mods. Do you know any documentation, tutorial, video materials, and so on, which would be a good answer to my question?
