Cannot make static reference: Mod.name()

I'm trying to use Mod.name() to print the name of the mod in a debug message using System.out.println but I keep getting this error:


Cannot make a static reference to the non-static method name() from the type Mod


In the past you used to be able to reference modid, name and version from the Mod class. Several tutorials I've seen use this in registerIcons() to refer to the mod package. Is this no longer possible?

That message is pretty self explanatory. Basic java: You can't call a non-static method without an instance available.


I understand the message, but how do you expose the Mod.name, Mod.modid and Mod.version information that gets set in the main class file? I would think that as soon as @PreInit is called an instance of the main class has been created.


Obviously it's available somewhere because it gets listed in the "Mods" list in the Minecraft GUI.
