[1.14.2] @Mod wants "Value"


Recommended Posts

I started work on a mod but almost immediately i ran into a wall.


When trying to fill in "@Mod" it wanted me to define the attribute "Value", it wont accept any of the expected values such as modid or version

I  have made sure that I'm importing the right class, I took a quick look at the Mod.Class but my lack of experience with java hinders from making too much sense from it,

Anyone ran into a similar problem before?

What do you mean by it not accepting any of the values? Posting the code might help.


You should give it your mod ID as a String, and should match your mod ID that you've put in META-INF/mods.toml. If you haven't filled out this file yet, or there's a mismatch, this could be the problem.

You don't need the "modid = " part, this is why you're getting the second error on that line (you haven't defined the variable modid). You can simply use @Mod("bravenewworldmodid"), or better yet, do something like

public class Main {
  public static final String MOD_ID = "bravenewworldmodid";
  // rest of your code

which lets you use that variable whenever you need the mod ID.

Nope. It's not about the variables.

It's about trying to assign an attribute that doesn't exist to the annotation.

Some tips:


Modder Support:


1. Do not follow tutorials on YouTube, especially TechnoVision (previously called Loremaster) and HarryTalks, due to their promotion of bad practice and usage of outdated code.

2. Always post your code.

3. Never copy and paste code. You won't learn anything from doing that.



Programming via Eclipse's hotfixes will get you nowhere

5. Learn to use your IDE, especially the debugger.



The "picture that's worth 1000 words" only works if there's an obvious problem or a freehand red circle around it.

Support & Bug Reports:


1. Read the EAQ before asking for help. Remember to provide the appropriate log(s).

2. Versions below 1.11 are no longer supported due to their age. Update to a modern version of Minecraft to receive support.

All variable names in annotations have names and need to be specified by “@Blah(variable=value)”. However, there is default variable that can be used (called “value”). This variable name allows you to omit doing “@Blah(value=yourValue)” and to just use “@Blah(yourValue)”

Versions below 1.14.4 are no longer supported on this forum. Use the latest version to receive support.

When asking support remember to include all relevant log files (logs are found in .minecraft/logs/), code if applicable and screenshots if possible.

Only download mods from trusted sites like CurseForge (minecraft.curseforge.com). A list of bad sites can be found here, with more information available at stopmodreposts.org
