Hey guys. I made a wheel texture ones for this server. I wanted to replace it in the paintings for the books or curtains cuz I saw that we have real bockshelfs and real curtains now. But then I heard that we re gonna have some custom wheels soon and i was very excited. But today i saw that I can't use these wheel textures like i actually wanted to and decided to make a post with this old texture. I think that we could delete the old curtain painting and we could use the custom block instead of it. I think that my texture could be helpful at multiple things like wall deco or for smaller carts/wheelbarrows and probably more.

I would e happy to see it soon. But if you don't want to use it, I will be fine with it I still think that it would be a great idea.

The problem is i think BWOT wants to get away from paintings, as they look a bit weird (kinda hovering next to the block instead of on it) and wants to generally do more with Custom Inventory.

I guess paintings would be very impractical for whelbarrows as they show the texture only on one side. Also it would be a problem that they are 2D only. I would suggest to use redstone wire for smaller wheels.

When do they not work?
they don't work for smaller cart and wheelbarrows for example. they really look like a kinda weird so you can't really use them as interior deco or something like that

Is it sarcasm? Cuz i think that it looks very unrealistic and kinda weird
I dont understand how paintings would be better. They are completely 2d with no depth at all, only visible on one side and you cant place them on slabs

Trapdoor would also be nice for a wheel texture.

Trapdoors are to valuable to use for such a rarely used block. But could be an item block.
