How to make an API for my mod


Jonessc2016

Recommended Posts

Essentially what you need to do is make some Interface classes that your actual mod implements (each function in the Interface being one that other mods can call), then provide an access class (basically the main API class) that holds null references to your actual blocks (type of these variables is each Interface class).

 

Package all those up and release it as the API.

 

Finally in the Init function of your mod you access your base API class and turn those null references into actual block/item references.

 

The best way to learn how to do this kind of stuff is to take a look at an existing API.  I'd suggest Mystcraft's because it's set up in a fairly simple manner, but it's not freely available.

Apparently I'm a complete and utter jerk and come to this forum just like to make fun of people, be confrontational, and make your personal life miserable.  If you think this is the case, JUST REPORT ME.  Otherwise you're just going to get reported when you reply to my posts and point it out, because odds are, I was trying to be nice.

ex:

public list<String> lol = new ArrayList<String>();

 

//blablablala

 

 

@IMCCallBack

public void onMsg(FMLInterModComms.IMCEvent e){

for(IMCMessage e : e.getMessages()){

if(e.key.equals("addtolol")){

lol.add(e.getValue());

}

}

}

////// on the other mods

@onsomething

onsomevoid {

FMLInterModComms.sendMessage("modid", "addtolol", "addthisstringtolistplzzz");

}

add this code to the explanation above (u can also use itemstack as value like sendMessage(modid, key, newItemStack value) ).

 

 

nah i prefer spoilers, this isnt working code it need changes

Gah, use the code tag please.  It makes examples a lot easier to read. >..X
