Ok this is going to be a very dumb question but do you have to code a item and then the block. For example
If you want to add a table do you have to go throught the whole itemTable then go through blockTable

Short answer: No.
Long answer: No, unless you also need it to have item functions that blocks cannot do.

If you cant tell I'm new to moding and have taken on a huge project for the first mod to be done. So thank you for replying to me so quickly so i could get back to it. I probally will be asking more questions later in this tread but real quick if its not to much of a hassel what kind of things would items be able to do that blocks can't

Do you have a repository or something that I can look at? That one snippet isn't really enough for me to help.

Override this method in your block class
Code:
@[email protected](Side.CLIENT)
public void registerBlockIcons(IIconRegister reg) {
this.blockIcon = reg.registerIcon(this.getUnlocalizedName().substring(this.getUnlocalizedName().indexOf('.') + 1));
}
Use this to register your block
Code:
public static void registerBlock(Block block,String name) {
block.setBlockName(<modid>.toLowerCase()+':'+name);
GameRegistry.registerBlock(block, name);
}
The texture should then go in the assets/<modid>/textures/blocks folder, with the name you specified when registering the block: <name>.png

EDIT: if it's an item, just do the analogous, but for items.

This is so overly complicated.

To register blocks I do:
Code:
GameRegistry.registerBlock(blockName, blockName);
And for textures, in the block's constructor:
Code:
this.setBlockTextureName("modid:texture_name");

I'm doing it the same way as you

Have you made sure your IDE has a refreshed resource folder? All of my assets get added after I make them in gimp so they don't show up in the project until after a refresh or restart. This has caused me many a heart-ache.
