Json models of vanilla format are so limited! Such a thought occurred probably to every mod-maker. And so we had to look for new ideas and solutions. So, the authors of this post have decided that modders need the best replacement for this format! You can say that we were wrong, but let's try to think.
This is what we did not like:
The only building brick of vanilla models is a shape. Yes, this is Minecraft. He is cubic. But any tool should be universal. It's well if you like Minecraft as is. However, you need to take into consideration that other people may see Minecraft differently.
Elements of the model is difficult to rotate.This problem is hidden, but people who often created models know that the element cannot be rotated along several axes.
Lack of a comfortable 3D editor. Of course, 3D editors exist, but they allow not more that allow vanilla json format. In addition, many of them have shortcomings. But for really good projects you have to pay.
Loader json models. You still do not believe that everything is so bad? Then I will reveal to you one secret: using json models, we can use only 30% of the ability of baked models. We can only create cubes, but Minecraft can work with any polygon! Imagine how you could create models using all the features of baked models!
Oh, if we could write better loader, make better model format, design better 3D editor... But wait... We can do it!
So, we present to your attention the program - FreeQuad, a program that will change minecraft for the better!
What is FreeQuad able to do?
Create json models in a new format (This is the heart of the program)
Create and edit models with your 3D editor (This is the second heart of the program)
Edit the contents of a group of files (For example, you decided to change the id of the mod in all blockstates)
Creating models from files by template (no information )
I also want to thank hohserg for his great contribution to the development of the project. The program was not designed to create models and only thanks to hohserg I can talk about all sorts of amazing features which we planned.
