New to Minecraft Modding


Recommended Posts

Hello Community,


Running through the codes of MCP, and tutorials. I do have java experience, and I would say a great deal of it through being a computer science student, going into my Junior year. Just started looking through the MCP yesterday.


I am not sure how much support I should expect out of this post, but here is my question. Does anyone have a few places for me to start looking inside of the MCP for modding my own, use of an additional bar like food for example. My idea is to make water a use, for dehydration. Possibly using the pre built water bar, but I would rather be able to import my own water droplet images. Also I would be looking for any code that may help me realize what blocks the character is near.



My idea is to add a water usage to intensify hunger games/pvp type games, where you have to stay hydrated or else over time you will get a nausea effect on your character. This hydration would be fixed by walking into a source of water, or drinking a waterbottle (kinda like darkcloud). I would be adding my own temperature to the game (unless there is one already).


But I will be looking through the forge notes, other posts, and such to find out what I can about this as well, just any additional help would be great.

yes, well if you have experience with java you probably already know that javadocs are super usefull, so if you google "minecraft forge javadoc" youll find (obviously ) the forge javadoc go there whenever you want a quick overlook of what a certain class does,

also, take a look at the tutorials on the forge wiki as a LOT of them help understand the basic mechanics of modding


to answer to your specific question


-packet handling





also feel free to naviguate the minecraft source (since you have access with mcp) because you will learn a F***ING lot from understanding the mechs of the game


and most importantly


gl hf welcome

I recommend entering the #minecraftforge channel on Esper server on IRC!

Also the mcp channel where you can use the mcp bot to search for the known deobfuscated names of methods like func_234_a.


Im on the phone so I didnt read your whole post but theres a intro to mc's code on the wiki here, which you may enjoy:


I suggest starting at the top with blocks and then you'll quickly see if its to your liking :)


Also for rendering HydroFlame posted some tutorials on tesselation and such on the wiki, be sure to check them out, he knows his stuff ;)


As for other tutorials quallity varies, the mc src will be your best way to find the truth ;)


Also WE LOVE YOU for knowing java <3

You will have no trouble finding helpfull people as long as you know oop somewhat and are willing to learn even more :)


Welcome :D

If you guys dont get it.. then well ya.. try harder...
