Add categories and default values to new config system

Recommended Posts

I just tried to port my old configuration to the new annotation-based system and noticed two missing features: default values and categories.

 

I understand the new system is still a WIP, so these may already be on the roadmap.

Default values are the values from the static initializes of your fields.

As for categories, you can make sub-objects. See here: https://github.com/MinecraftForge/Mercurius/blob/master/src/main/java/net/minecraftforge/mercurius/Config.java

I'm not sure i want to move things into TOP level categories. I'd more rather change the top level from "general" to "ModID" or something. But I havent decided yet.

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

Thanks, that makes sense.

Just a note, this is my test suit for this. Not the best but shows all the different data types and sub-categories:

Yes, but you have to use the internal config object that is created by the manager.

The GUI is part that I haven't gotten around to doing quite yet.

Using the GUI system is really easy it just needs to be glued together.

https://github.com/MinecraftForge/Mercurius/blob/master/1.9.4/src/main/java/net/minecraftforge/mercurius/binding/ModConfigGui.java#L40 being the example of how to use it in this style setup.

Thanks, I ended up with this. Is there a way to do this without using reflection to access

ConfigManager#CONFIGS

?

Btw, have you thought about giving modders the option to separate "global" and "user" configs? That would be especially helpful for modpacks, since users could still change some settings (like the tooltip position for Waila/OneProbe) without getting them overwritten every time the modpack gets updated.
