The goal: As many minecraft shop owners have probably noticed, there is no way to permanently place a held item, such as a pickaxe, in the world. If objects like these, compasses, sticks, swords, tools, armor, etc. could be placed, shop displays could be much simpler, and this would mean there would be no need of long lists of signs for objects that cannot be displayed. I searched, and found no plugins that can do this, and I understand it is no easy task. If any developers would like to take it up however, I am confident the mod will become very popular among the community. One method of doing this, besides writing completely new blocks, would be to look at the mobspawners. I don't quite know what I'm talking about, but on the inside of a mobspawner, the mob it spawn's model rotates. If it's possible to make the outer layer of the spawner transparent, maybe it'd be possible to have any model rotating, such as the model of armor held in your hand, etc. It would require some scaling, and the rotating would be a bit annoying, but I just thought this simpler method might work. Thanks for reading this.
