1. If your textures aren't loading make
sure to save/load your model first and follow folder structure that's
used in Minecraft's resource packs putting all used block textures in
"textures/block/". Even if texture used by you is the default Minecraft
texture you still have to extract it from Minecraft's files for it to be
rendered in Model Creator. Here's an example:

If a program used to browse archives like 7zip or WinRAR open when you double click the program and you're on Windows right click it and go to Open with > Java(TM) Platform SE binary.
If after doing the previous step the program doesn't open, make sure you have Java 7 or Java 8 installed. If you don't, you can download it from here.
If after following all previous steps the program still doesn't run, open console by (Windows) holding shift and right clicking in the folder the program is in (make sure you don't have any files selected) and clicking on the Open command window here option, Then type java -jar "Model Creator.jar" and run the command by pressing enter. If any error appears in the console, copy it, send it to pastebin and post a link to it in this topic.
hey, i am trying to make a 3d resource pack and this software has worked great for things like ladders but whenever i try to edit a block such as gold_ore.json it doesnt load, i believe it has something to do with the parent blocks. is there a way to be able to edit blocks like logs or ores without editing the parents and such?
hey i was looking if there was a way to rotate elements, i am trying to make things like cacti and ores so it would be great to just copy, paste, rotate then position rather than having to create multiple elements all over again
