How to effectively port a mod to other game versions?

Recommended Posts

I've recently fully finished my first mod for version 1.16.4 and was wondering what is the most efficient way of porting my mod to other game versions.

 

I suppose you wouldn't create a new project repo to port from 1.16.4 to 1.16.5? Would I need to create a new repo to make the mod compatible with different but still relevant game versions like 1.12.2)? 

 

It's all a big mystery for me...

 

PS: I am not sure if this is the correct thread to ask this question.

correct, 1.16.4 mods are compatible with 1.16.5, you just need to add to the version range in mods.toml

Yes, the vanilla and the forge code were entirely different, for 1.15 it would be easier (you'd still need a new repo), but for 1.12 you would be better off rewriting everything from scracth

 

note that: the forum currently only supports 1.15 and 1.16, don't bother asking for help with other versions

I believe this topic belongs under Modder Support, not Forge Gradle
