Topic category: Help with modding (Java Edition)
Alright, so, I'm a complete noob at coding mods. I literally have no coding experience, but I do have a vision.
In essence, I've played through essentially every Naruto-based mod out there, from actual mod to plug-in, and none of them had that *spark* that made them unique. Some were simply incomplete, others hinged on large player-bases, and others still seemed exceedingly counter-intuitive.
What I'm aiming for is a mod that creates chakra as an energy, like mana in some magic mods, and has it as a GUI/overlay (no idea what to call it. Noob, remember?) available to the player at all times. I know it can be done, through seeing these sorts of energy bars in many mods, but I've no way to go about it.
As well, while I would like to go further into detail about elements and bloodline limits and how a player would realistically obtain them, that belongs in another post. For now, I really need the base energy bar system to get "wired-in".
Finally (and this is off-topic, I know it), does anyone know how I could make 3D textures for items? I'm unsure of whether or not it just uses the 2D texture or not.
All help is appreciated!
