Mod supporting several versions from XXX to XXX

Hello everyone!

I am new to Forge, up to now, I used MCreator to write small mods for myself, but now, I wanted to try it with Forge.

So, I have downloaded Xray mod, and saw, that it supports several versions.

So, I wanted to know, how can I make a mod supporting several versions?

I read the tutorial for updating from 1.7.10 to 1.8 (currently on 1.8, but updating as soon as possible).

I thought that a mod can only support a single version? Because, after compiling, the mod gets compiled for version X.X.X, and can only support it.

 

Best regards,

It's only possible to make a mod that supports several Minecraft versions at once if you don't interact with any part of the Minecraft/Forge code that's changed between versions. In practice, any mod that does something substantial is unlikely to work in multiple versions.

 

The only practical way to support multiple versions is to maintain a separate copy of the code for each one. Git branches are a good way to do this.

 

The exception to this rule is 1.10.2, which is 99% backwards compatible with 1.9.4. This means that most mods built for 1.9.4 will work in 1.10.2.

 

Forge no longer supports 1.7.10 at all (threads about it are locked) and I believe support for 1.8.9 is dwindling. I would recommend updating directly to 1.10.2, the only version that's currently receiving bug fixes and enhancements.

Please don't PM me to ask for help. Asking your question in a public thread preserves it for people who are having the same problem in the future.

    • Hello! When I'm trying to get items by tag during the recipe serialization, I'm getting an empty list. I have a guess that item tags're not loaded by the time minecraft loads my recipes. Here's my code: Class that saves information about ingredient's count Recipe serializer with some aux methods: Registry: Example of the json recipe file:  
    • I tried to install client forge on my linux desktop. But after "installation" it's missing forge[version].jar file in .minecraft/versions. I tried java 11 and 8 environment with same result. Here link to log file from installation: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1vtg9NT-WX5ilb1aNUvZlOv54gKWJuaT1/view?usp=share_link. I don't know what to do. I give for every directory permissions that I don't think that is issue. I will try check older versions if universal file work. Debian 11 (kernel 5.10)
    • I recently got error 1 in the launcher, so I restarted the .minecraft. After restarting it, I can't get the Forge 1.19.2 - 43.1.1 installer to run, I tried other versions and I get the same result, it opens a black box that closes instantly and nothing happens. I already tried to restart my pc, minecraft, update and reinstall java, run vanilla 1.19.2 and more recent versions of the game, disable Windows Firewall and antivirus and I still haven't solved it. Many times I installed forge and never ran into this problem. If I could receive assistance I would be very grateful.  
    • Here's the default loot table for gravel block: { "type": "minecraft:block", "pools": [ { "rolls": 1.0, "bonus_rolls": 0.0, "entries": [ { "type": "minecraft:alternatives", "children": [ { "type": "minecraft:item", "conditions": [ { "condition": "minecraft:match_tool", "predicate": { "enchantments": [ { "enchantment": "minecraft:silk_touch", "levels": { "min": 1 } } ] } } ], "name": "minecraft:gravel" }, { "type": "minecraft:alternatives", "conditions": [ { "condition": "minecraft:survives_explosion" } ], "children": [ { "type": "minecraft:item", "conditions": [ { "condition": "minecraft:table_bonus", "enchantment": "minecraft:fortune", "chances": [ 0.1, 0.14285715, 0.25, 1.0 ] } ], "name": "minecraft:flint" }, { "type": "minecraft:item", "name": "minecraft:gravel" } ] } ] } ] } ] } This is a finicky loot table. If I add anything to it, nothing drops. I've added pools, entries, children ... you name it. Does anyone know the particulars about this table? I mean, periodically gravel drops flint instead of a gravel block. I understand the condition that could drop flint if the block survives an explosion. Otherwise, it drops the gravel block itself. I would like to further understand why the use of `children` and the set of `chance` values given in the explosion child entry. What I do understand is that `"type" : "minecraft:alternatives"` means that if this child/entry is successful, then it stops generating loot for this entry/pool. How often does the flint drop and is that taken care of in another location? Is that in a `"condition" : "minecraft:table_bonus"` loot table? Hmmm... I'll have to go take a look and see if there is something called table_bonus.json.
