Forge 11.14.4 Minecraft 1.8

Recommended Posts

Forge Version: 1.8-

Minecraft Version: 1.8



Time for another Recomended build.

This one is a bit sparse due to cpw and myself spending most of our time re-working Fernflower to support the new systems that are in place in Minecraft 1.8.2+ namely GENERICS!

Fry has done a lot of work to add new enchancements and features to Forge while we have been slaving away on Fernflower.

However, Fernflower is now complete enough where we feel confident in working on 1.8.8 and fry has finished the features he wanted for 1.8. So we're doing a Recomended build as a tie-off for 1.8.

The next version we push out should be 1.8.8, and then when 1.9 drops that. The 1.8.8 -> 1.9 gap will be FAR less then the 1.8->1.8.8 gap because 1) It's actually changin things in the game feature wise and 2) We've done all the hard work getting Fernflower ready so we don't have to do that again!

Major New Feature:

OBJ support:

Thanks to ShadeKiller and Fry modders and resource pack creators can now use obj format model files internally and from BlockStates.json.

This allows for really fancy looking models and much more flexibility!



New lighiting system:

Fry has re-wrote a lot of the lighting engine of Minecraft. The vanilla implementation did a poor job performance wise and did not light up complex models very well.

The above image is vanilla lighting, and this one is the new system. Note: There is a config option to disable this in case you run into issues, see the in-game GUI.



Default renderer for Fluids:

If a modder so chooses, they can now use a generic integrated renderer for fluids:



Mod List GUI Changes:

I have reworked the mod list GUI, logos are now centered, the text is scrollable.

AND! Links are now clickable!

The background color has changed, so some mod logos might look weird, sorry. Deal with it ;P



Mod Update Check system:

Its been a highly requested feature, and a highly poorly implemented feature in many mods.

Forge now comes with a standard Update check system.


The updates will be displayed in the Mod List GUI, with clickable links and description if the modder provides it.

All the modder has to do is add a entry into his @Mod annotation: updateJSON pointing at a URL for a json file that follows the format specified here:


End users can disable the update checks in the config file, or by using the in-game config GUI.


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