Accelerate loading for big modpacks

Recommended Posts

I saw this post on r/feedthebeast and I thought it could be a good idea, I don't know if it was already suggested or if it is possible.

"When you launch the game it loads and checks everything that the mods add - but this does not need to be done at every single startup.
Do it once, and save the result. Save the item/Block IDs somewhere, what ever else is needed too. And upon startup just check if anything has changed - if not, use the already existing data."

Not possible. This has already been asked before.

The parallel mod loading in 1.14 would increase the loading speed a lot though.

Some tips:

Spoiler

Modder Support:

Spoiler

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TechnoVision (previously called Loremaster) and HarryTalks, due to their promotion of bad practice and usage of outdated code.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.

4.

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:

Spoiler

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.

To my knowledge you're describing something like a savestate system, in which case the "state" would still need to be saved and loaded back which would still take time, and depending on how the constituent mods were designed the state might need to be rebuilt entirely at any time for any number of reasons.

There is not some magic fix for this when any poorly made mod could invalidate the whole thing at any time therefore negating any benefit of the system.

This is my Forum Signature, I am currently attempting to transform it into a small guide for fixing easier issues using spoiler blocks to keep things tidy.

 

As the most common issue I feel I should put this outside the main bulk:

The only official source for Forge is https://files.minecraftforge.net, and the only site I trust for getting mods is CurseForge.

If you use any site other than these, please take a look at the StopModReposts project and install their browser extension, I would also advise running a virus scan.

 

For players asking for assistance with Forge please expand the spoiler below and read the appropriate section(s) in its/their entirety.

Spoiler

Logs (Most issues require logs to diagnose):

Spoiler

Please post logs using one of the following sites (Thank you Lumber Wizard for the list):

https://gist.github.com/100MB Requires member (Free)

https://pastebin.com/: 512KB as guest, 10MB as Pro ($$$)

https://hastebin.com/: 400KB

Do NOT use sites like Mediafire, Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive, or a site that has a countdown before offering downloads.

 

What to provide:

...for Crashes and Runtime issues:

Minecraft 1.14.4 and newer:

Post debug.log

Older versions:

Please update...

 

...for Installer Issues:

Post your installer log, found in the same place you ran the installer

This log will be called either installer.log or named the same as the installer but with .log on the end

Note for Windows users:

Windows hides file extensions by default so the installer may appear without the .jar extension then when the .log is added the log will appear with the .jar extension

 

Where to get it:

Mojang Launcher: When using the Mojang launcher debug.log is found in .minecraft\logs.

 

Curse/Overwolf: If you are using the Curse Launcher, their configurations break Forge's log settings, fortunately there is an easier workaround than I originally thought, this works even with Curse's installation of the Minecraft launcher as long as it is not launched THROUGH Twitch:

Spoiler
  1. Make sure you have the correct version of Forge installed (some packs are heavily dependent on one specific build of Forge)
  2. Make a launcher profile targeting this version of Forge.
  3. Set the launcher profile's GameDir property to the pack's instance folder (not the instances folder, the folder that has the pack's name on it).
  4. Now launch the pack through that profile and follow the "Mojang Launcher" instructions above.

or alternately, 

 

Fallback ("No logs are generated"):

If you don't see logs generated in the usual place, provide the launcher_log.txt from .minecraft

 

Server Not Starting:

Spoiler

If your server does not start or a command window appears and immediately goes away, run the jar manually and provide the output.

 

Reporting Illegal/Inappropriate Adfocus Ads:

Spoiler

Get a screenshot of the URL bar or copy/paste the whole URL into a thread on the General Discussion board with a description of the Ad.

Lex will need the Ad ID contained in that URL to report it to Adfocus' support team.

 

Posting your mod as a GitHub Repo:

Spoiler

When you have an issue with your mod the most helpful thing you can do when asking for help is to provide your code to those helping you. The most convenient way to do this is via GitHub or another source control hub.

When setting up a GitHub Repo it might seem easy to just upload everything, however this method has the potential for mistakes that could lead to trouble later on, it is recommended to use a Git client or to get comfortable with the Git command line. The following instructions will use the Git Command Line and as such they assume you already have it installed and that you have created a repository.

 

  1. Open a command prompt (CMD, Powershell, Terminal, etc).
  2. Navigate to the folder you extracted Forge’s MDK to (the one that had all the licenses in).
  3. Run the following commands:
    1. git init
    2. git remote add origin [Your Repository's URL]
      • In the case of GitHub it should look like: https://GitHub.com/[Your Username]/[Repo Name].git
    3. git fetch
    4. git checkout --track origin/master
    5. git stage *
    6. git commit -m "[Your commit message]"
    7. git push
  4. Navigate to GitHub and you should now see most of the files.
    • note that it is intentional that some are not synced with GitHub and this is done with the (hidden) .gitignore file that Forge’s MDK has provided (hence the strictness on which folder git init is run from)
  5. Now you can share your GitHub link with those who you are asking for help.

[Workaround line, please ignore]

    • ok, i'm not surprised i was wrong about the player, i've only ever sent in opposite direction. getSender is there and i should have checked instead of posting blindly... but how would he know the block location without including it in the message?
    • Sorry I can't find any premade tutorials for 1.17 at the moment. It really depends on the version of forge you are using. But here's the rundown: You want to look at classes such as BeaconBlock, or ChestBlock, BeaconMenu, etc. to help you with these steps, but you need to do the following: 1. Make a block extending BaseEntityBlock (BeaconBlock) 2. Make a block entity for it (BeaconBlockEntity) 3. Make a menu for it (BeaconMenu) 4. Make a screen for it (BeaconScreen) I know it's a little complex, but I'm sure you can find tutorials online, or if someone else comes in to help.
    • This usually happens because of a bad manifest (mods.toml). Can you show us what's in your src folder?
    • Don't change it, the launcher comes with it configured properly.
    • Hello all. I am trying to implement oil into my mod (I know I know, unoriginal). But I just can't seem to get it to work. (System/Minecraft information: Java 17, forge: 1.17.1-37.0.95, mappings: official) I am using DeferredRegisters. In the current configuration, the bucket doesn't do anything most of the time, the block doesn't appear and doesn't flow. I am extending "ForgeFlowingFluid". It seems in LiquidBlock there are two constructors, one deprecated taking in a Fluid, the other takes in a supplier/RegistryObject<Fluid>. Because I am using DeferredRegisters, I have to use the second one, because blocks are registered before fluids. But it seems that in the code, most of it relies on the LiquidBlock.fluid field, which never gets set in the second constructor. I tried hacking in a solution with a "Fixed" version of LiquidBlock: public class FixedLiquidBlock extends LiquidBlock { private static final List<FixedLiquidBlock> liquidBlocksNeedingFixing = new ArrayList<>(); // Check if the supplier is a registry object. If it is, and the value is not null, set the value of the fluid field, else mark it so that it gets set later. public FixedLiquidBlock(Supplier<? extends FlowingFluid> supplier, Properties properties) { super(supplier, properties); try { if (supplier instanceof RegistryObject registryObject && registryObject.get() != null) { try { Class<?> class_ = LiquidBlock.class; Field fluidField = ObfuscationReflectionHelper.findField(class_, "fluid"); fluidField.setAccessible(true); fluidField.set(this, supplier.get()); } catch (Exception e) { throw new RuntimeException(e); } } } catch (NullPointerException ignored) {} liquidBlocksNeedingFixing.add(this); } @Mod.EventBusSubscriber(bus=Mod.EventBusSubscriber.Bus.MOD) private static class FixedLiquidBlockEvents { @SubscribeEvent(priority = EventPriority.LOWEST) // Force the event to be called last // After registration of fluids is finished, set the fluids field. public static void onFluidsRegister(RegistryEvent<Fluid> fluidRegistryEvent) { for (FixedLiquidBlock fixedLiquidBlock : liquidBlocksNeedingFixing) { try { Class<?> class_ = LiquidBlock.class; Field fluidField = ObfuscationReflectionHelper.findField(class_, "fluid"); fluidField.setAccessible(true); fluidField.set(fixedLiquidBlock, fixedLiquidBlock.getFluid()); } catch (Exception e) { throw new RuntimeException(e); } } } } } But clearly what I'm doing is stupid because it still doesn't work. I even tried without my hacky solution, and it still didn't work! Am I doing something wrong? Should I be extending something else? What else should I do?   Code for fluid, OilFluid.java:   public abstract class OilFluid extends ForgeFlowingFluid { protected OilFluid() { super(new ForgeFlowingFluid.Properties( Source::new, Flowing::new, FluidAttributes.builder( new ResourceLocation(MiniTech.MODID, "block/oil_still"), new ResourceLocation(MiniTech.MODID, "block/oil_flow") ).overlay(new ResourceLocation(MiniTech.MODID, "block/oil_overlay")) .translationKey("block." + MiniTech.MODID + ".oil") .color(0xffffff))); } public static class Flowing extends OilFluid { public Flowing() { registerDefaultState(getStateDefinition().any().setValue(LEVEL, 7)); } @Override protected void createFluidStateDefinition(StateDefinition.Builder<Fluid, FluidState> p_76476_) { super.createFluidStateDefinition(p_76476_); p_76476_.add(LEVEL); } @Override public int getAmount(FluidState p_76480_) { return p_76480_.getValue(LEVEL); } @Override public boolean isSource(FluidState p_76478_) { return false; } } public static class Source extends OilFluid { @Override public int getAmount(FluidState p_76485_) { return 8; } @Override public boolean isSource(FluidState p_76483_) { return true; } } } Code for ModBlocks.java:   public class ModBlocks { private static final DeferredRegister<Block> BLOCKS = DeferredRegister.create(ForgeRegistries.BLOCKS, MiniTech.MODID); public static final RegistryObject<RefineryFurnaceBlock> REFINERY_FURNACE = BLOCKS.register("refinery_furnace", () -> new RefineryFurnaceBlock(BlockBehaviour.Properties.of(Material.STONE).requiresCorrectToolForDrops().strength(3.5F).lightLevel(litBlockEmission(13)))); // Fluids public static final RegistryObject<LiquidBlock> OIL = BLOCKS.register("oil", () -> new FixedLiquidBlock(ModFluids.OIL, BlockBehaviour.Properties.of(Material.WATER).noCollission().strength(100.0F).noDrops())); public static void register(IEventBus eventBus) { BLOCKS.register(eventBus); } private static ToIntFunction<BlockState> litBlockEmission(int lightLevel) { return (blockState) -> { return blockState.getValue(BlockStateProperties.LIT) ? lightLevel : 0; }; } }
