ModelLoader 1.12.2 is a library that allows mods to load models in format mcx and gltf.

There are 2 operation modes in the library:

  • Loading models defined in the blockstate json files (ModelLoaderApi.registerDomain(MOD_ID))
  • Registering the models directly (ModelLoaderApi.registerModel(id, location))

You can get back the baked model and the original model data with (ModelLoaderApi.getModelEntry(id))

The format MCX is just a json serialization of a IBakedModel so it simple and can be changed easily.

GlTF in the other hand, it’s a complex format that uses binary encoding to optimize file size, allows animations and it’s becoming an standard in the game industry.
