xdecor has an "itemframe" that displays an item inside by adding an entity that uses a "wielditem" visual and has the item image as texture:

https://github.com/kilbith/xdecor/blob/ ... mframe.lua

I guess if your node is transparent, any entities inside will be displayed. Thought you would have to add/remove/update each entity every time the inventory changes.

I have thought about this for a bit but could only think of making a separate node for each item. If that item is placed in the oven then it would set the right nose. This would be similar to what the furnace does to get the flames when cooking.

Edit- programmingchicken - forget the begal and go straight for the good stuff. Coffee and doughnuts. Yummy......... Doughnuts

Then you are better off going with the same idea as item frames. The problem with that is you will get the spinning item like a dropped item.

Wouldn't it be possible to make it not spinning?

Not that I know of. Maybe someone else has something better to say.

Edit - can you post a link to the mod that the pics are from?

The items don't spin when they are displayed in the itemframe. It's added as a custom entity, not as an item entity. It starts being invisible ("air") and then the texture changes when the block is right clicked. You also have control on how big you want it to be.

I have not seen this version of itemframes. I will have to check it out. The last time I used itemframes they spun.

It's from xdecor, I haven't seen much the other implementations.
It has quickly become one of my favorite mods for basic decorative elements, homedecor is a bit too much for me.

I haven't tried xdecor yet. It looks great. I agree that homedecor is big. It is great for creative building but a bit much for regular play. I will check out xdecor today.
