Forge 34.1 Minecraft 1.16.3


Recommended Posts

Forge Version: 34.1.0
Minecraft Version: 1.16.3

Hello everyone, it's finally that time. A recommended 1.16 build is here. We had to wait longer then I wanted to because there were a lot of problems with the initial 1.16 release from Mojang, enough that it was obvious that a .1/.2 was needed. So we waited for Mojang to stabilize the 1.16 branch, out came .1, .2, and .3. Each one same with its own surprises, the main one we have to mention is 1.16.2's major re-write to biomes. Allowing them to now be data driven. This is a very powerful thing that moves Minecraft to a more flexible state, but it also meant all our old hooks had to be re-designed. Every Minecraft version moves towards a better engine, but unfortunately that means we have to work with the interim steps. So if there are any issues modders face with Biomes/Worlds now being mostly data driven, speak up an expect a few iterations of the tools Forge provides you for these things. But remember, now that we are in a Recommended Build it means Forge will stay stable API wise for the rest of the 1.16 lifecycle.

Mod License:

There has always been little skirmishes about what license a particular mod is released under. To try and help address that, we have now made it mandatory that mods specify a "license" value in their mods.toml. That is the text file containing metadata about the mod, such as version, name, author, etc. This is a simple text entry, it can be anything the modder wishes as long as it is present. The MDK ships with it filled in for you with "All Rights Reserved" which is the default copyright stance in almost every jurisdiction. I highly encourage modders to take a moment and think about how they want their mod to be used, modified, and distributed. And then pick a license that properly expresses their wishes. If you want a open source license https://choosealicense.com/ can help you pick. However, it is your mod, so whatever license you want is fine. Please do not take this as a push to one style or another. Simple as a reminder to choose something and let your users know.

With this being released, it officially triggers our support policies as described in the LTS post. This means that 1.14 is now EOL. It can still be used and developed for. It just means that we no longer provide active support for it. And we encourage all users/modders to update to a more modern version.
