[UNSOLVED] Giving Players Ability to Draw
Sun, 07/04/2021 - 12:16 (edited)

The title is weird but ill explain

 

I've had thoughts about making a magic mod but to do it in a unique way: The players have to draw the symbols themselves if they do a ritual

 

I have no idea how to make a texture or GUI system thatll allow me to do this

 

I know other mods have similar systems (like the ones with custom pumpkin carving or like Chisel and Bits)

 

How can I make this system to allow players to draw magic runes/sigils?

 

PS: I dont mean cookie cutter "click this button to place this sigil" but that they actually have to draw it themselves in full

wanna learn how to do complex stuff within MCreator just like that? here's a friendly suggestion: maybe don't spend the time to ask us... coz i don't wanna be rude but like 90% of us here have zero idea of how to that kinda stuff too and chances are high that we may not be able to answer you with an actual solution... coz truth be told, that's neither our expertise nor something that we're even toying around with. (idk if it's just me but it's a tad intimidating to see questions about how to make [x] complicated feature in MCreator sometimes)

maybe try to ask on the official Forge forums or Discord instead, where people actually code their mods including their custom systems, as they're kinda pros in those sorts of features (or, if in case you're afraid to face that, then you'd have to accept that we don't even know how to accomplish that kinda stuff without heavy coding). and even in telling you to make your own custom system by code, we cannot specifically tell you how to code it (perhaps not even the official devs like Klemen or Goldorion, i guess)

tl;dr - sorry man, i don't think there's anyone who can answer you in a way that you'd really know what to do afterward; let's face it, we're no code gods. perhaps go for an easier, less complex magic system instead? :(

wait... better yet, learn to code and/or learn from how the other mods that have done that feature do it through their code ;)

You can make a block and when placed it checks wheather the blocks around it are in a shape you want like if you want a square check it all the blocks around it are not air and do whatever you want if they are. I know this isnt the thing you wanted but I cant think of any other way
