    Hi there!

    I was working on my mod yesterday when i noticed something quite strange, it is possible to rename an item( armor, ore, bars, etc... ) but not an object( chests, chair, beds, table, etc...).

    I have seen some weird things happening though. when i pickup the item or see it as a craftable item in a crafting station interface, the name is changed on the left side but not on the right side. If you pick up or craft the object it will appear as the name you set it, but it still does not seems to work once i hover the object.

    here is what i used to test the problem on my side:
    • spawn a renamed object
      • /spawnitem claypot2 1 '{"shortdescription":"i have a new name"}'
    • spawn a renamed item
      • /spawnitem fullwood1 1 '{"shortdescription":"i have a new name"}'

        "input" : [
            { "item" : "fullwood1", "count" : 20 }
        "output" : {
            "item" : "ponystand",
            "data" : {
                "stand_sex" : "f"
            "count" : 1
        "groups" : [ "armorstandbench", "objects", "all" ]
    player.config.patch file:
        {"op":"add","path":"/defaultBlueprints/tier1/-","value":{ "item" : "claypot2", "data" : { "shortdescription" : "i have a new name" }, "count" : 1 } }

    here are some images of what happens:

    when picking up the renamed item:

    when looking at the renamed item in my inventory:

    i have made a simple mod so that you can see the bug for your self
    after some more research i also concluded that the description, and orientation elements also cannot be changed this way.

    i do not know if it is a bug or just isn't meant to change name, description, and graphics but what ever.
