To add enchantments to tools, for example, is the same as it was in 1.3.2 I think. Here's the code:


public int getItemEnchantability()
        return this.toolMaterial.getEnchantability();


Quoting from the ItemTool.class: Return the enchantability factor of the item, most of the time is based on material.


I find Wuppy's tutorials very helpful: http://wuppy29.blogspot.nl/2012/10/forge-modding-142.html

He's re-writing all the tutorials to 1.4.5 at the moment.


With forge, its more of a guessing and experiment game. You have to look in the minecraft files to see how to code certain things, for example, if I want to add features to my custom grass block, I'd look in the BlockGrass.class

You will spend a lot of time huffing and puffing and getting frustrating when something doesn't work and you can't find a tutorial. Useful classes are:





They contain the code that goes in the main mod class. Hope this helps :)
