[HELP ME] Mod creation - Lack of knowledge


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone !

It's been a few weeks that I started creating a mod but I'm having some troubles right now..

I'm running Forge in 1.7.10 because "they" said it's much more easier for beginners.

I created a basic mod but didn't really understand what I was doing there.. I just copied/pasted what I was seeing at that time. I don't like that, I want to understand, create things by myself !

So I looked up for Java/Forge tutorials and just learned some basic stuff.. But I'm getting troubles with Proxys, events and advanced stuff

Si I wanted to know if you guys know some great tutorials that explain things well 


Also, I finally created my first slab and would like to create stairs but I can't find any useful codes in the referenced libraries, can you guys help me ?

Thanks a lot ! 


PS: If you want to explain something in Java please don't use complicated words, like I said I'm a very new beginner

1.7.10 really isn't that much "easier" to mod for than 1.8 is. It's just different and some people didn't like some of the changes in 1.8 and stayed on 1.7.10. Good on you for actually trying to learn rather than copying a pasting, however it is extremely helpful to be a bit more familiar with java before trying to create a mod. That said, there are plenty of tutorials online that do a great job explaining what you want. A quick google search for forge events or proxies should be enough to get the basics down. You can also get some examples and see how other people are doing things by looking at mods on Github. As for the stair, take a look at BlockStairs.

Well, I found that :


public class BlockStairs extends Block


    private static final int[][] field_150150_a = new int[][] {{2, 6}, {3, 7}, {2, 3}, {6, 7}, {0, 4}, {1, 5}, {0, 1}, {4, 5}};

    private final Block field_150149_b;

    private final int field_150151_M;

    private boolean field_150152_N;

    private int field_150153_O;

    private static final String __OBFID = "CL_00000314";


Which I believe sets the block bounds.. But I don't know what to put instead of "field_150149_b" and so on .. Can someone help me ? :-\

Unrelated, please do not center your posts.  It's annoying as fuck to read.



Apparently I'm a complete and utter jerk and come to this forum just like to make fun of people, be confrontational, and make your personal life miserable.  If you think this is the case, JUST REPORT ME.  Otherwise you're just going to get reported when you reply to my posts and point it out, because odds are, I was trying to be nice.


Exception: If you do not understand Java, I WILL NOT HELP YOU and your thread will get locked.


DO NOT PM ME WITH PROBLEMS. No help will be given.

If you're not here to help, you can go away Draco.

If you can't take a little criticism, you can go away. We are just trying to help you. If Draco18s says centering your post is annoying, you don't have to listen to that. It is just a recommendation so we can understand you better and help you better.

Don't PM me with questions. They will be ignored! Make a thread on the appropriate board for support.

1.7.10 and older versions of Minecraft are no longer supported due to it's age! Update to the latest version for support.

    • Thanks everybody! I managed to fix it. I just had some missing attributes in my OilFluid class
    • W10 Pro. Android 11 on my S20+(or is it 12 already?). My two other computers are running on W10 home, all behind G-Data security suite, and a Fritz. I'm supposed to use Linux, no? I hate making things compatible, and Linux has limited access to some games I love, so...Mac is even worth I guess? I'm buying servers btw. It's not I couldn't set one up for Linux, but I lack the skills in online security, and I'm paranoid. So not a good combo I guess?
    • Yeah, the whole registry process can be quite confusing and daunting for how MC is working nowadays, but once you get the grasp of it, it actually saves a whole lot of effort, and quantity of code. I'd spend 3 days+ to actually figure I had to apply the getter(.get())[<-- is this even named getter?], to any of the .class references, because stupid Eclipse refused to de-obfuscate the source of problems. It was just making stupid a** auto fix suggestions, that didn't help at all. Google found the answer quite often though. And don't even get me started when I was trying to implement the Oil to world generation. I was literally tearing my hair out for days. But don't give up. We're not the only ones dealing with the reinvention of MC code wheel. I mean I get it. There's always room for improvements. But a wheel is just a wheel, right?
    • Thank you everybody, I have figured out the cause. I was accidentally passing in the constructor for the Fluids instead of the RegistryObject. I changed: super(new ForgeFlowingFluid.Properties( OilFluid.Source::new, OilFluid.Flowing::new, to: super(new ForgeFlowingFluid.Properties( ModFluids.OIL, ModFluids.FLOWING_OIL, And now the fluid actually works! But it doesn't spread though, I think I'd be able to figured it out from now. Thanks a lot Luis_ST and Cratthorax!
    • Because I was used to doing it like that in the past. Also, a block is very sparse in code quantity. Also, also, I would use the blocks to check against blocks of same type at lower levels, to mark as an indicator to what can be found digging deeper into the ground. Doing that with anything but the same object type is just unnecessarily bloating code. However, I had to use creative ways to get something working. What I did was rendering my block and its voxel shape invisible, make it nonsolid and notBlockMovement, then apply the randomTick() method, and using this: worldIn.destroyBlock(pos, true);...which basically drops the item after the blocks gets randomly destroyed. The good thing about that is, with the new DataPack function, I can do all that stuff with a single block object, and then just use instances of other block registers and their properties. I can also customize the loot tables for any of them, but don't need an actual block.class for any of them. Given how I have more then 60 ore blocks in my old mod, that is a really great thing about newer MC versions. The final solution was actually found in vanilla Block.AIR, after messing around with various methods, none of them doing what was easily done in the past MC versions with onBlockAdded(), and dropBlockAsItem(). I'll just leave the block code, and register code here for reference, which should give you a picture of the many things I was trying without success:
