hey everyone,


Tutorials Twitter: @helfullsTutoria


i am going to show and explainyou how to create mods with MinecraftForge.


You need to get MCP and MinecraftForge. Installinstructions u can find here:






Once you got Forge you are able to create mods with it since Forge has his own ModLoader.


Your base file is the mod_XXX.java file normal it should look like this:

package net.minecraft.src;
import net.minecraft.src.forge.MinecraftForge;
public class mod_XXX extends BaseMod {
public String getVersion() {

public void load() {



All sourcecodes can be found here: https://github.com/Helfull/MinecraftForge-Modding-Tutorial/

Ooo. I might learn a little something beyond ModLoader with these. It couldn't hurt to give these a whirl as I waiting for my next semester. I'll be sure to keep these pages bookmarked along with my other tutorials. :)

Check out my

Texture Packs Thread here on the Forge Forum. :)

Currently in the process of adding some mod support for JohnSmith Texture Pack.

If it would be okay for me to make a request, I have been dealing with gui's and such, and have been having a hard time grasping how TileEntities work, containers, and all that jazz.  Would it be possible to come out with a tutorial on that?  I have the basics of dealing with them down, however it would be nice to have a clear tutorial on how they work and such.


Shout out to hotrods20 :P
