How to make New Crafting Tables???


Recommended Posts

Hello Minecraft Forge Community ,

This Question has been bothering me a while and i don't seem to find anything anywhere.

I'd like to create Machines(working like Crafting tables ) that have they're own Recipes. For example like furnaces and Crafting tables have different Recipes.

I was told that doing that is Really difficult but seeing other Mods doing things similar to what I plan just makes be go Crazy because I just cant figure it out.

Now I'm asking you if you could help me I'd appreciate it very much If you want you can even Name that new "Machine" fitting for the Mod of course.


Thanks In advance,

This can be sort of confusing...It's basically spread between three different classes.

First, the Block:

This part is fairly straight forward except that you want to be a subclass of BlockContainer.

Example: https://github.com/bau5/ProjectBench/blob/master/bau5/mods/projectbench/common/ProjectBenchBlock.java

Secondly, the TileEntity:

The TileEntity holds all the information about the ItemStacks, what index they are within the inventory, all the logic about decreasing, increasing, and moving stacks, and the NBTTags that save what is held in the inventory.

Example: https://github.com/bau5/ProjectBench/blob/master/bau5/mods/projectbench/common/TileEntityProjectBench.java

Thirdly, the Container:

Imagine this; if the GUI is what you, the client, sees and interacts with, the Container is what the server sees and interacts with. The container is where you lay out all the slots that the GUI will let the player interact with.



Mine is a little different than the Minecraft workbench because I wanted the items to stay in the crafting matrix even when you close the GUI (the regular one tosses them on the ground).


Hope this helps!
