you need to be more specific. like is it an entity or block/item texture, how did you make the texture, show code, etc.

oh yes of course, i am trying to make custom sword texture which is 22width and 27 height,

i made the texture through the mcreator app itself and the item it self works however the texture itself

doesn't work. for the json file it looks like this

 

{
  "parent": "item/handheld",
  "textures": {
    "layer0": "projectsword:items/treasuresword"
  }
}

try using blockbench to create the sword texture and json, then create the sword element using the json as the model. it should auto generate correctly

is there a particular tutorial video link you could show me? i'm trying to make a pixeled sword like the original minecraft sword

but more detail, and videos that i saw only had how to make 3d models using blockbench. and also what does it mean by 'create the sword element using json as the model'? it is a little bit hard to understand but first off, what's 'sword element'?

sorry for the inconvenience i am literaly a beginner from zero so everything sounds quite new to me

i believe item texture size need to be multiples of 8, like 16x16, 32x32. try making your sword 32x32 and try again.

click the "resource" tab at the left of you workspace, then click the "3D model and texture mappings" tab at the top, then click "import json 3D model" right under the tabs. now select the json file from wherever you saved it and import it, it will also want a texture for the model, so import the png file.

click the "mod elements" tab on the left of your workspace. here you see all your mod elements, including your sword element. click into it and in the item model field, choose the newly imported json model, and on the left the tool texture choose the png file (import it again if it isn't there). build it.
