While editing my resource pack recently I discovered that I was using a very old version of Blockbench (1.11.x if not earlier). After updating to the latest version, textures will no longer load properly when opening most models. Specifically...

  • All textures on the model will be replaced by the default multicolored missing texture
  • The textures will still appear on the left panel, but all of the variables will be reset to the default numbering instead of what is set in the model file
  • Upon saving the model, the textures block will be removed entirely and all of the texture variables on the model will be set to #missing

This affects all models which don't use the default texture naming scheme (a.k.a pretty much every model). This seems to affect both the desktop app and the web app, though I wasn't able to fully test the latter. Operating system is Windows 10. Nothing unusual appeared in the console.

Aslo, changing the names of missing textures to #missing just seems like bad design. There are so many cases when a texture might be "missing" as far as Blockbench is concerned but appear fine in-game. What if the model is used as a parent? What if the texture is from another resource pack? The older version of Blockbench I was using prior to installing the update didn't do this, and I cannot figure out why you would decide to implement this "feature".

For reference, here is a model before opening it in Blockbench and here is the same model after. The fact that such a major bug hasn't been reported yet makes me think that either something's wrong on my end, or it has been reported and I just didn't see the issue.
