That's how it looks ingame:

Minecraft doesn't render the alpha channel in-world, which makes it look weird. It's fine when it is in the inventory though.
I'd suggest using the partial transparency only for the stained shards. That's how I did it with the current textures.
FUUU!
Seems like it has to be coded in.
By the way, you can try and test your textures ingame yourself by dropping them into the .jar file, into the "assets/glass_shards/textures/items" folder
I guess I have to replace Glass_shard.png?

"Seems like it has to be coded in." - what did quote there? I never wrote that

It's actually called glass_shards.png.
Well there's one png file for each of the colors, and one for the uncolored version.

Yea noticed also linked to how to add transparancy which does allow the alpha channels to exsist aparently.
note the guy is sort of a douche

I dont understand it but im sure you do xD
You basicly take the glass properties taht is saying its a transparant texture.
The video only covers transparent blocks, which by themselves are no problem.
Rendering items ingame is a different story. If I wanted transparency to be handled properly I would have to write my own renderer for the item, which is beyond the scope of this mod IMO. I would need to see how Mojang does it, but I can't copy their code.

You can still use alpha channels, it will still show up when rendered in the inventory. Just not when dropped on the ground or held in the hand.

Yes
every color is a separate texture
Guess I'll do that when I get home tonight.
Also still missing some screenshots from the working transparancy :p

"Better textures (but only if someone goes ahead and makes them for me, I'm a terrible artist :( )"

You can remove that from the Feature's :cool:
