View textures on Android?

by jan6 » Thu Oct 13, 2016 21:25

I have a pixel art editor on phone and almost no access to computer(right now) so I thought about making a texturepack,
Only problem being that I want to preview the block quite often,so,
Do you know any app that works(is supposed to work) on android 2.3 and can show a rotateable and textured block?
Doesn't matter whether it's made for MT or MC.
If there isn't one, could someone make an simple app that shows a rotateable block with changeable face textures and option to toggle between "1image=all faces" & "1image=1 face"?
Shouldn't be too hard to do...right?
The "changeable" part means that it's not taking textures from inside the app, but somewhere external(internal memory is still external to the app)
The minetest app runs on 0.25 FPS or something like that and it would be a huge overhead + struggle + time to load it up...

Why don't you try with a block model, in a 3d model editor for phone?
As well i know you can import textures...

(Sorry mate, i really don't know about any app likely the one you say)
Happy new Year 2020: let's all aim finally for a clear vision of what we want to make of Minetest!

Problem with 3d viewers is that they use one image and stretch it on the model(I think) and I don't know the format...

Shouldn't be too hard to do this for cubes - the hardest part would be getting the file browser to select the file to open

I would be ok if it just opened images from a specific directory, like
$sdcard_path/texturesviewer(or smth else)/top.png etc...

Is this dead?
In the meantime, I did find C4droid and it has an SDL plugin, so if this request is dead then I guess I'll have to spend the next few months(or just the rest of my vacation...or just a day if I find the right example code) learning C and SDL...

If it's not dead then please say so, I plan to learn some C anyways... without any real reason as to why, so this would give a tiny bit of motivation...maybe?

So quiet...
If, at any time, you manage to get a 3D cube that uses different images for each side and takes these images from outside the app (sdcard), feel free to tell me, also I've probably forgot this thread by then, so remind me about this too...
