Static link to whatever is the latest version?

This is more of a suggestion for the site itself, and I'm aware Lex can be quite... "you know" with suggestions he deems unworthy.

 

Soo... Something that randomly came to mind one work day was automation, because it can be quite bothersome trying to make the "checking for updates" ritual part of my morning routine since they're so frequent.

So on Curse, I've noticed the orange "Download" button for mods appears to be a static link to whatever is the latest version.

 

Now what I'm suggesting is maybe having a static address for the big red buttons to link to for downloading whatever is the latest version at the time.

I'm aware this might require uploading the latest version a second time to overwrite the previous version for the static link to lead to, but it would help immensely with automating the downloads so I don't meet with the "update available" light compelling me to close the game and launcher and going through the process.

First of all, anything like this is kinda discouraged since forge (and the servers it runs on) is payed for using the money generated by the ads that are displayed before the downloads. If you bypass this, forge makes less money.

 

There is however a JSON file being generated: http://files.minecraftforge.net/maven/net/minecraftforge/forge/json that lists all versions.

As stated, this already exists. We simply discourage people using it because it literally takes the monkey out of our hands and money is needed to make this site work and for me {and others} to be able to pay their rent.

So it exists, but you won't get help from us to use it.

If you want it as part of your 'Morning ritual' then loading up the main download page for whatever MC version you want would be good enough. As it'll have the latest version under 'Latest' promotion at the top.

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

Of course it's about money.

*takes a deep breath*

 

So if you get paid for the ads, is the Curse client also harming your income? I don't use it myself since I can't figure out how to get LiteLoader with Forge on it, but it does offer Forge itself.

mods on curse get money for downloads

Everything except Forge, it's exempt.

 

So yes, everything run through Curse I see no part of.

I used to have a deal worked out with Curse where I would be a consultant for their CurseForge system.

But nothing ever came of it.

 

So, again, they exist, and you can find them if you look for them.

However this has to come from a business/greedy side {I know I hate it but I admit it} We will not actively support you circumventing it. We won't stop you, we simply won't HELP you.

    • 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:
