Topic category: Help with modding (Java Edition)
I know this got asked a lot, but I've seen that nobody really gets to the point and give a code snippet example instead of just telling the OP to code custom animations. Yes, it's obvious - just like how the sky is blue in the morning - that custom animations require coding to some extent, but how would we go about to do it exactly? I've wanted to make an arm swing animation for an entity of mine when it attacks, and as far as I've searched, what did I find? Nothing. Not even the code for custom complex animations, and I already know how to animate head, arms, and legs rotations 'coz those stuff are easy to animate. I really need help on custom, more complex animations such as arm swings, and to get better at entity animations as well... and browsing through Minecraft's deobfuscated entity models' source code does not even help me understand the animation mechanics as well. I know full well that it's not very easy, but still, I want a digestible explanation and even a straightforward elaboration of the things it requires. And I'm using Forge 1.14.4 by the way, so I can't really use the GeckoLib plugin for now 'coz I'm not planning 1.15 support for my mods anytime soon...
P.S. If you don't know the code itself, think well before even posting a comment, please. I want honest, working answers, if ever there are, and maybe also words of encouragement as well tbh.
Any working solution would be immensely appreciated :D
