I was wondering how, if possible at the moment, and how hard/easy it would be, to create totally new blocks. And a few other questions. I didn't really find much by looking around some.
1: Create plain decorative blocks?
1a: blocks with a little animation like a blinking light?
2: Create a new rotation or angle for the corner slabs?
3: Create a new type of wedge/corner piece? Such as a smaller wedge.
3a: Where wedges/corners even are in the files?
4: How to make/set up a texture to use with new block?
5: How to get new blocks to work in multiplayer? Is it just getting the other people playing with me to download the files I have and into the right files?
6: For retextureing existing blocks, do you just edit the t000 image or is it something weird you do with t002?
6a: If not the latter, what is t002 even for? I'v seen it used for textures of a mod adding new blocks.
7: Could you add your new block to factory recipes or at least the shop? If you can make new blocks in the first place; how?
8: How come I get a null-pointer-exception anytime I try to run a mod or texture someone on here made?
I'v messed with the block editor but either I'm doing it wrong or it doesn't work, because no matter what file I save it to and select it from I get an error in singleplayer and multiplayer(I'v tried the main folder, almost all in server-skins/database, and client-skins/database). I know I'v seen a couple people with mods they made of new blocks, not just textures.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
