i'm making my own texture pack and have changed the bow (all 4) and changed the arrow but when it fires it still looks like an arrow. ive changed the bow to a pump action shotty and the arrow to a shotty shell and id like the fired arrow to look like a pellet
You're talking about the arrow entity? If so, go to "...\textures\entity\projectiles" and there you'll have arrow, spectral arrow, and tipped arrow all in there. This is assuming you're editing for 1.9.+, I haven't gone into the .jar file of the other recent versions.
No problem. It's still around the same area for 1.7.10. This time, it's just in "...\textures\entity\" and it's a file called "arrow.png." Changing the texture in that file should change the arrow entity if I remember correctly.
