[SOLVED] FML doesn't recognize my mod


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

first off i'm really new to modding Minecraft so i'm a complete noob and the first thing i was doing was for testing purposes, just to see if it was working at all.

So i made a simple testing block with a new texture and a recipe. I was reading tutorials about all that stuff just to make sure that everything was done completely right.


Now to my problem, when i put my .zip mod file into the mods folder that is created by the newest forge mod loader version, the forge mod loader simply doesn't recognize my mod, it  completely ignores it, it doesn't even show an error message.

Client> 2013-07-05 20:37:25 [iNFO] [ForgeModLoader] Forge Mod Loader has identified 3 mods to load
Client> 2013-07-05 20:37:25 [iNFO] [mcp] Activating mod mcp
Client> 2013-07-05 20:37:25 [iNFO] [FML] Activating mod FML
Client> 2013-07-05 20:37:25 [iNFO] [Forge] Activating mod Forge

So apparently as you can see it loads the standart forge mod loader parts, but not my own mod. I looked through the entire development console output but it doesn't even mention my mod.


The thing is, that my mod works completely fine when i start minecraft in eclipse and when i put other 1.6.1 mods into the mods folder FML recognizes them. Of course i recompiled, reobfuscated and ziped the stuff i coded just like it was mentioned in the tutorials.

Since i can't figure out what i'm doing wrong i thought i might get some help from you guys.


It would be great if you could help me, and please don't be too hard on me, as i said i am completely new to these things.

Thanks in advance!

Ok, since it seemed like no one was able to help me, i got back to it and played a little bit around with the folders. First i came to the conclusion that for some reason i have to but the unziped folder into the mods folder, I don't know why but that is uncommon, isn't it?

So now the block was in the game but it had the purple/black (missing texture) texture. The good thing was that the development console now helped me and told me in which folder it couldn't find the texture.

When i programmed the code in eclipse i put the texture in src/minecraft/assets/%modname%/textures/blocks/.

Now i knew it wouldn't work if i created an assets folder in the mods folder, so i came to the conclusion that i had to put the .png into /mods/%modname%/assets/%modname%/textures/blocks/.


I know this seems somehow wrong but it works and i'm glad it does. I don't know why it doesn't work when i use the same directory structure in a .zip file but i guess i have to be happy with what i got.

If someone knows how to solve the .zip issue, please let me know, i'd appreciate it.

do you have a mcmod.info file?


  "modid": "",
  "name": "",
  "description": "",
  "version": "",
  "mcversion": "",
  "url": "",
  "updateUrl": "",
  "authors": [ "" ],
  "credits": "",
  "logoFile": "",
  "screenshots": [],
  "dependencies": []


Is the zip structure correct?



<yourzip>/%modpackage%/<mod files>    <= I figure this is correct as it works unziped

<yourzip>/%modpackage%/<mod files>    <= I figure this is correct as it works unziped


I tried that out but it didn't work.

    • Hi fellow minecrafter,   We've got exciting news from the Pacific Laboratory for Artificial Intelligence (PLAI) at UBC! We're merging the worlds of Minecraft and AI research, and you're invited to join through our platform, plaicraft.ai, to aid our data collection process. It's not just playing games; it's contributing to cutting-edge AI research.   BetterStructures and more!!: We want to make the server as fun as possible for everyone so we recently added a bunch of structural plugins that adds over a hundred of new structures and sites for you to explore and challenge. We are also working on PVP, bedwars and skyblock content, which will make the server even more fun!   Here’s how you can get involved! -Register on plaicraft.ai with your email(you can fake one, as long as you can receive email from it it's fine). -Complete a consent form. -Play Minecraft and contribute to science! (all you need is a Chrome browser and a steady internet, you'll be playing on VM)   Why You Should Participate? -Support AI Research: Your gameplay directly contributes to important AI advancements.  -Free Minecraft Access: Enjoy the game without any cost. -We have shaders and a bunch of cool mods loaded on our instances  -Great Community: Our server currently has a fantastic community, with many awesome players you can meet.   Elephant in the room: Now I want to address some obvious concerns, I sure did a good job making us sound like a scam by the above content. I know that the "free Minecraft" thing has always been taboo in the Minecraft community. So how can I prove to you that this is not a scam? - The easiest way and most official way is that we are approved by the University of British Columbia ethics board, our BREB number is H23-02389. You can verify this case number yourself. - The harder way is that I'll explain the technical details of this project and why we choose to provide free Minecraft. So the goal of this project is very similar to the paper MineDojo or MineRL, we want to collect a multi-modal dataset that consists of video, audio, keyboard and mouse movement. Minecraft has been a very important simulation environment for the ML community and there are tons of papers related to it. Now we obviously don't have enough money like those big tech companies who can just pay people to play, so we have to turn to the Minecraft community. To record all the data mentioned, there needs to be a lot of setup and coding, and it's definitely impossible for us to ask people to run these recording programs on their personal computers. So we carefully configured the AWS EC2 instance to run Minecraft alongside the programs. And that's where and why we also provide you with free Minecraft licenses, of course, we are not giving the account to you, just allowing you to be able to play Minecraft on these instances. You might ask, "Why can't I log in with my account on the instances?", that's because first login with your personal Minecraft account is another privacy risk; second not all our target audiences have an account; and lastly we restricted a lot on what you can do on the instance, basically all you can do is play Minecraft and that's all the data we want, allowing you to log in will make things complicated to control.   For more information on the project and the team, visit Dr. Frank Wood’s website or follow @frankdonaldwood on Twitter. You can also learn more about PLAI lab research on our website (just search ubc plai). Join us in transforming your gaming experience into a meaningful contribution to AI research. Let’s push the boundaries of what gaming can achieve together! Happy plaiing!   Best,  The PLAI Team
