Creating tabs inside of a custom crafting table (1.18.2)


Recommended Posts

Heyo! To expand a little bit, I have had an idea, I just am not really sure to where to start, so some help would be great.

Idea: So, you know how the Minecraft recipe book has a button? Maybe using the code like that, but instead of opening a little recipe menu, it overlays a second gui, connecting to the same blockstate and accessing a new set of input and result crafting. So, you'd have both, for example, the furnace and the crafting table, and you'd flick between them. Issue is, I have no Idea how buttons are supposed to work in Minecraft, and I don't really know how to find the source code for the crafting table, so that locks me at a dead end right at the beginning. Unless this is some Java skill issue on my part, I'm mainly a C++ dev. Anything, even a, "you're just stupid", would be great, as it would point me in the direction of more general Java googling instead of just Forge

If you are new to minecraft modding, the crafting table (CraftingMenu/Screen) is not the place to start.

This forum is littered with people struggling to understand/emulate the crafting table.

Try something simpler first to get used to how AbstractContainerMenu/Screens work.



There are simpler examples in vanilla code.

If you don't post your logs/debug.log we can't help you. For curseforge you need to enable the forge debug.log in its minecraft settings. You should also post your crash report if you have one.

If there is no error in the log file and you don't have a crash report then post the launcher_log.txt from the minecraft folder. Again for curseforge this will be in your curseforge/minecraft/Install

Large files should be posted to a file sharing site like https://gist.github.com  You should also read the support forum sticky post.
