Smart/quick way:

Into MyMod.class:

public static CreativeTabs MyTab = new CreativeTabs("MyTab")
	public int getTabIconItemIndex()
		return MyMod.itemID/.blockID

If you want to have InGame name:

public void load(FMLInitializationEvent event)
	LanguageRegistry.instance().addStringLocalization("itemGroup.MyTab", "en_US", "MyTabInGameName");


And here is some unknown (never watched) tutorial found just by writing 3 words into google ;p


Only thing I know that this one is way longer.

1.7.10 is no longer supported by forge, you are on your own.

Another way, in your mainmod file, have this in preinit(eventhandler),


			"itemGroup.nameoftabhere", "en_US", "Name of tabhere");


and this in the main file, anywhere works, i put it right under init personally,

public static CreativeTabs tabCustom = new CreativeTabs("nameoftabhere") {
	public ItemStack getIconItemStack() {
		return new ItemStack(
				block/itemnamehere; //such as Block.cobbleStone or myblockhere


small difference from Ernios way, either is up to you.
