Map<ResourceLocation, Object> vs forge registry for an API


Recommended Posts

It's the other way around we would need to know what you're planning to tell you the benifits. However simple answer is Forge registries do all the hard work of saving/loading/syncing/substitutes/aliases/networking for you. So if you use any of those features it's probably best to use ours. But if you're working internally and don't need numerical ids for networking or dynamic substitutions then a normal map would work.

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

My use is holding a map of classess for an RPG style mod, with the potential for other mods to add classes. The classes are required on both sides, but will be set via a GUI. How should I go about syncing the data, I am currently sending the ResourceLocation of the class as a string in my packets.
