How do I import more than one custom java model into resources?
Mon, 07/04/2022 - 22:09

I am using mcreator 2022.1 to make a minecraft mod with multiple living entities. I downloaded blockbench and have built two new mob models. I exported the textures and then the models as .java

I can import all the textures into my mcreator workspace, but only one .java model into resources. I cannot find an option to import the model directly into the new mob (living entity) creation.

What am I doing wrong?

Give a unique name to each model in Blockbench.

Essentially, whereas with everything else the file name determines how the game uses it, with Java Entity models, each model also has an 'identifier' name that determines how the game uses it. By default, Blockbench sets the identifier name to 'custom_model-' this is why you should be able to import one model just fine, but just overwrite it whenever you import anything else.

In the 'file' tab of blockbench, you should be able to change the project identifier to whatever you want. As long as it's different than any existing models, it should work fine.
