I am having two problems with custom models in my resource pack. I am not sure, but I think that they are related. I have looked everywhere and found this and this.

you cannot give a solid block a model like that

Is there any way of fixing it? Here is a screenshot with both problems: tree problem

    I can't seem to infer what problem you're trying to solve. Well, at least not with 100% accuracy. Are you asking for help with the fact that your block has a base color that is not grass, and therefore stands out? That's the only issue I see. Commented Jun 24, 2021 at 17:55
  • @Tacoタコス I want to solve the problem that the diagonal sides are dark and that when you look under it you see void and not grass.

As the post you linked specifies, due to how Minecraft renders textures, blocks which should be solid will remove textures connecting to other solid blocks. It's why the post has a screenshot showing why a slab works, but not solid dirt.

Your best bet would be to, maybe, create a texture for the bottom, or simply not use that model.

  • as i said, your best bets are only to make a texture of some form for the bottom or to not use that model

  • OK. But how do I make Minecraft think that it was never a full block in the first place?
