What's the deal with mcmod.info (some technical questions)

Unsure if this belongs here but *shrug*

 

I have a few questions/confusion about mcmod.info and can't find any recent documentation on these particular things.

 

I know that the purpose of it is to provide metadata on a particular mod entry, but specific questions are:

 

1) Why do we even have it when we can just specify all of these in our main class @Mod annotation? Is it just to make things easier for FML and Modders?

 

2) What's the significance of having two version fields? The one in the mcmod.info metadata appears as the first version string in the "Mods" menu, whereas the one in the @Mod annotation appears after it in parenthesis. I'm *guessing* the former is designed to be numerical, whereas the later is a string representation (e.g. "Release", or "Alpha", etc.) but I want to be sure. Personally I'd like to only use one, but if I leave the @Mod one empty then it leaves the () there and it just looks dodgy. EDIT: Oh and then *thirdly* we have version property in build.gradle too... but I realized that this is only what's used in the jar filename.

 

3) Lastly, why are "version" and "mcversion" fields in the metadata formatted as variables by default, but don't even work?

 

These might seem like pedantic questions, but the reason I ask is because I'm working on a script that automatically manages Mod versioning and builds changelogs based on Git commit messages, and other things of the sort.

 

Thanks.

0) https://github.com/MinecraftForge/FML/wiki/FML-mod-information-file

1) Launchers, web sites, anything not written in java, or anything that doesnt want to execute abritrary code to get your info.

2) They should be identical. Unless you're derping something up.

3) The replacement should be in the default build.gradle shipped with the source, if you change it then you need to change the info file.

I do Forge for free, however the servers to run it arn't free, so anything is appreciated.

    • Register your own IRecipeSerializer. It is registered like any other registry entry. However note that you should have as much as possible in the JSON. Don't just have a placeholder JSON file and then hardcode all the logic in code. That defeats the point of datapacks. You'll have to have your own repair recipe then (see above for how to make your own serializer) and override getRemainingItems. If the knife is your item, override hasContainerItem and getContainerItem in your Item class. If the knife is not your item, refer to the section about repairing. Use a GlobalLootModifier.
    • So, im kinda new to modding. Trying to make relatively complicated mod(as I see now, it breaks the api a little bit...), and faced into some problems, especially with crafting. I think I should tell a little bit about my mod, you actually can skip this part, but if you don't get something, i strongly suggest to read this part. The goal i'm chasing is to implement similar food mechanics to TFC classic(1.7.10) mechanics. In a nutshell, it's food with durrability, and when you eat, you consume as much as you need(like if you have a steak and 1 hunger, if you eat it, stake's potential wastes, in case of my mod, it shouldn't). That's it, that's already done(with little bugs thou, but done). Now I have to do crafting somehow, using that items and modify durability while crafting. And it doesn't seems to be easy.     And.. question 1 will be: is it possible to hardcode crafts in 1.16.5? I know.. it's kinda not beautifull, but I really hate the json system. I've made as much crafts as possible by using it, but now, when I need to implement some logic, it's such a headache.   2. This question is about repearing. I mean, placing two damaged items in recipe grid. If you add 2 8/10 items, you'll get just one 10/10 item, and nothing more. I'd like 6/10 item to apear in grid after crafting. 3. Also there should be a recipe for extracting seeds with knife(i don't like to loose knife and whole peace of crop after craft). 4. And the last one. Well, I should change drop of crops if it's broken by special tool. I know, it's possible to do it by adding harvest tools, but I can't modify vanilla crops(maybe only by reflection..). Seems like it's reasonable to use onBlockBroken event, or something like that, but I keep finding deprecated code examples in google, and it doesn't work for me. Maybe there is a better solution.   About crafts.. I tried to figure out how CraftSerializers works, and i think it might be a good solution for that crafting stuff. But don't understand how to bind the serializer to regular minecraft crafting. Tried to read ShapelessRecipe class, but don't understand what happens in mathes, so cant do any assumptions how should I modify it.

    • What Im trying to do is to implement a "dash" mechanic on a Shift button.   @SubscribeEvent public static void onEvent(InputEvent.KeyInputEvent event){ KeyBinding runBinding = Minecraft.getInstance().gameSettings.keyBindSprint; int key = event.getKey(); int runKey = runBinding.getKey().getKeyCode(); ClientPlayerEntity player = Minecraft.getInstance().player; if (key == runKey){ //some checks, and then: float yaw = player.rotationYaw; float x = -MathHelper.sin(yaw * 0.017453292F); float z = MathHelper.cos(yaw * 0.017453292F); double groundMotion = 5, airMotion = 2; if (player.isOnGround()) player.setMotion(new Vector3d(x * groundMotion, 0, z * groundMotion)); else player.setMotion(new Vector3d(x * airMotion, 0, z * airMotion)); } } And this code works. The problem is, it causes a lot of lag when the setMotion() is called - my fps drops from 60 to 50-40 and the dash movement looks discrete. I wonder why is it so and how it can be improved...
