Can I use a resource pack that makes flower pots fatter?

Discussion in 'Block Hunt' started by MC_DELTA_T, May 3, 2020.

  1. Can I use a resource pack that makes flower pots fatter?

    Or is that against the rules because you can see flower pots more easily?

    Or is that not against the rules because the hitbox size is the same?

    I don't know help please

  2. It's not against the rules to modify the texture of a flower pot, since it would still have the same sort of hitbox regardless of whatever texture you would use. It won't really guarantee any sort of advantage since it is something you can do in minecraft through simply editing texture packs. For example, I adjusted the model of my diamond sword so that it is very small in first person, but very big in third person point of view, so. I can tell when someone is using a sword. I did the same with a bow and adjusted the model of how people shoot bows in third persons and it doesn't give you any sort of advantage, only maybe a slight advantage. If you have any more questions related to the rulebook and what if questions regarding punishments, you could always contact an RC member given in the list below through the forums or through discord if you are able to find them:
    Edit: I am not sure about a model, but I would again ask RC for that.

    Toki - RC admin
    Wanderer_ - RC member
    zdemon98 - RC member
    HuskieALS - RC member
    Arjun - RC member
    Nolawn - RC member

    If these following people aren't able to contact you, you could always contact a staff member regarding if certain punishments are bankable/mutable, which you can find the list of them at www.mineplex.com/staff . You will usually find a staff member through Lobby-1, or you could join the community staff request through /com request StaffRequest and when you are allowed to join, you could ask questions about certain rules. Other than that, feel free to check out the rulebook for more info at www.mineplex.com/rules .

  3. Yes, it is punishable. I have asked Toki in the past, and she said it would count under unapproved mod. This is because 2 blocks tall pots give a completely unfair advantage to the hunter as they can be seen from a much further distance, as well as from spots that other hunters wouldn't be able to see straight away without a retexture. This also applies to other retexturing, such as 3 blocks long and tall chickens for example.

  4. Hello!

    I'm not sure if this method would even work. From my understanding of game mechanics, I would imagine that changing the size of the textures wouldn't affect hitboxes. If you press f3+b in-game, it allows you to see the genuine size of hitboxes for entities regardless of what texture pack you may have on. You could compare changing the size of a flowerpot to changing the size of your sword. You can make your minecraft sword cover a larger or smaller portion of your screen, and it would never change how far you can reach. In the same sense, I imagine that changing the visuals of the flowerpot wouldn't affect the size of hitboxes.

    This is only my personal opinion, but I would recommend asking a staff member.

  5. What if you change the color of flower pots? They can also easily be seen through leaves, such as purple and yellow flower pots get it?

  6. Depends on how much you change them. As long as you don't make the models ridicously different like increase the height to like 14 blocks, then you should be good. And since different color textures are minecraft-able meaning it doesn't require modding, then yes, you can change color since all you do is change the png file for that block or mob.

  7. Could I make it the size of a cake? or is that too much

  8. Pretty sure if you keep the width and length to a 1 block minimum (fits within a 1 x h x 1 box you should be good, just make sure "h" or height isn't a lot)

  10. I'd get it approved first though which is what I did

  11. To be honest, even if you do do it, no one would notice probably as it's a texture pack but from what I can see above apparently it's not allowed so better not use it.

  12. If all you are doing is changing the TEXTURE, you should NEVER be banned. If you are changing MORE than the TEXTURE, such as model, then I would get that part approved first.

  14. Yeah and if you want leaves semi-transparent turn on fancy graphics and it will change the leaves so you can sort of see through them

  15. Would you just want to change the colour of flower pots, or would it involve something else? I asked Toki, she would like to know more precisely what you wanna do with it!

  16. Oh my god I want to do that as well
