Custom Glazed Terracotta

easy

FORMAT & MIN ENGINE VERSION 1.20.40

This tutorial assumes a basic understanding of blocks. Check out the blocks guide before starting.

Introduction

Glazed Terracotta has its own rotation mechanism, enabling players to craft aesthetically pleasing patterns for walls, floors, and ceilings. This guide will instruct you on creating your own blocks resembling glazed terracotta.

Custom Glazed Terracotta

This will create a vanilla-like custom glazed terracotta.

Geometry

Vanilla glazed terracotta rotates certain faces of the block with some specific values, which is what gives the block it's magic. Use the following geometry to replicate that behavior.
