I can't build/compile my mod.


Recommended Posts

i have looked up tutorials on it, but i still cant figure out how to. when i try to it finishes in about 15 seconds without any errors. then, when i take a look in the jarfile, i realize that the only content inside it is a META INF folder and a MANIFEST.MF file, but no classes. i think it might be tat I've written down the wrong path to my classes, but i have checked and it is correct, so I'm not sure. my mod is located in (relative to gradlew.bat) /src/sigurd4/. the package is com.sigurd4.Bioshock. this is my build.gradle file:

buildscript {
    repositories {
        maven {
            name = "forge"
            url = "http://files.minecraftforge.net/maven"
        maven {
            name = "sonatype"
            url = "https://oss.sonatype.org/content/repositories/snapshots/"
    dependencies {
        classpath 'net.minecraftforge.gradle:ForgeGradle:1.2-SNAPSHOT'

apply plugin: 'forge'

version = "0.1.1"
group= "com.sigurd4.Bioshock"
archivesBaseName = "BioshockMod"

minecraft {
    version = "1.7.2-"
    assetDir = "eclipse/assets"

dependencies {

    inputs.property "version", project.version
    inputs.property "mcversion", project.minecraft.version

    from(sourceSets.main.resources.srcDirs) {
        include 'mcmod.info'
        expand 'version':project.version, 'mcversion':project.minecraft.version
    from(sourceSets.main.resources.srcDirs) {
        exclude 'mcmod.info'

please help? :-\

edit1: spelling

I think your path relative to your gradlew.bat-file should look like this:


Normally when you set up your workspace, forge creates automatically a /src/main/-folder which contains the java folder and the resources folder. If this is the problem, go to http://files.minecraftforge.net and download the recommended version. Then create a new workspace, put in all the files, ...

Then copy all your classes from /src/sigurd4/com/sigurd4/Bioshock to your new workspace to /src/main/java/sigurd4/...


If there is no src/main folder, the gradlew file cannot find your main class.

sigurd4, the path you specified is correct. Try running


gradlew build --stacktrace


and see if you DO get any errors. If not, I'd reinstall ForgeGradle.



Minecraft can do ANYTHING, it's coded in Java and you got the full power of Java behind you when you code. So nothing is impossible.

It may be freaking fucking hard though, but still possible ;)

Your source packages should be anchored at: <gradlew location>/src/main/java/

So, you main is .../src/main/java/com/sigurd4/bioshock/Bioshock.java is an example main class location.
