Help Making a Basic Mod


Recommended Posts

Hello, i'm trying to make this: When a player presses the F12 key, they will continuously keep crouching every 1 (or few) seconds until that key is pressed again. Any ideas on how to make this? So, basically like a auto sneak. Thanks! ? (If you could, please type the code down below or make the mod and upload the file for me.) BTW, this is for Sky Factory 3. I made an auto tree farm using the Steve's Carts mod but i don't have a way to quickly grow the trees. However, when you rapidly sneak, the saplings will grow. Also, this is just for me - i won't show anyone this code or give the file to them without your permission.

Either we are in a paradox, or one of your statements are incorrect.


I do not believe anyone here will simply make a mod for you, at least not for free.
I believe Diesieben07 has stated a few times that he charges an hourly salary of 50$.
The other's, I'm not sure about.


This place is a forum to learn how to do things, or ask for help.
Requesting someone do everything, isn't asking for help, it's asking them to do everything.


However, I can tell you key points of interest:

1) Use either a Tickhandler, or subscribe to the LivingUpdateEvent

2) set sneaking with Entity::setSneaking(bool)

3) Key-presses (like pressing F12) only happen Client-Side, so you might be required to use packets to send the updated sneaking to the server ("so that the trees know that you are sneaking")

It's impolite to request free labor. The volunteers here will answer Forge and Minecraft design questions, but that's all. You're expected to know programming, Java and your IDE (e.g. Eclipse) or find other external resources to learn them.


Have you setup a Forge decomp workspace? If not, then go to the tutorials and start reading. If you're set up, then dive into the Minecraft classes and find where key-presses are processed.

Good point. My first go at this would be to define a new abstract key (that a user could reassign). Then I'd try to find a way to translate that key's  complete press (down & up) into a sneak-key-down action (if such a thing exists). If that tricks Minecraft into thinking that the sneak key is down and not yet released, then you'd be sneaking continuously until you tapped the real sneak key (its release ending the sneaking).

The debugger is a powerful and necessary tool in any IDE, so learn how to use it. You'll be able to tell us more and get better help here if you investigate your runtime problems in the debugger before posting.
