[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.
