Where to start with creating Minecraft client mods [closed]

Recommended Posts

I've looked all over the net and YouTube and for some reason this is some top secret information or something but I'm trying to find out where to get started on making a Minecraft client mod, preferably something that can be put into a pack like feed the beast or technicpack for simplicity for users but either way is fine.

How would I go about creating a mod? I'm familiar with eclipse and java programming itself but I don't know where to start writing a rsa plugin .

I've tried setting up Minecraft Forge but for some reason it is so incredibly confusing and very messy. can't I just include some Minecraft library, start with a simple boilerplate and go from there? (Like developing for Bukkit)

this is the first pinned/sticky topic that you should read, that contains some helpful links

secondly there is this http://thenewboston.org/tutorials.php for learning on java programming itself

I'm gonna move this thread to Mod Makers Market

Take note, that asking "how to mod" is a useless question and revolves too many questions. Instead, explain what you know, what you have done so far and where you seem to be stuck. This will be easier for others to point out where and how to help you


Finally I should add; there aren't that many mod devs around here (barely any) so this topic might not get much replies. Forge community might be a better place for coding discussions

      I need some help with my modpack MetallicPack. I have watched two videos on how to create a modpack and have 3 folders bin, mods, and configs. I have put modpack.jar in bin and put my mods in the mods folder. Then i added those three folders to the archive and made them a zip file. I then uploaded it to copy.com. I edited my created modpack, this problem is driving me crazy because i have done this like 3 times and no matter what I have gotten errors.
      (I don't know if this fits in the Cafe Lame place, I am new here)

      The Enderverse is a new server with active staff, running "The 1.7.10 Pack". If you don't already know, this modpack is a huge, amazing creation with around 200 active mods! Whatever you like to do- there's going to be something for you. If you have any questions, we will be happy to answer them in-game! We also have an official website, which is listed below.
      Several Important Plugins: RewardVoting, GriefPrevention, Multiverse, iConomy, Essentials, BanItem, Worldguard
      Official Website: http://theenderverse.com/
      This modpack is run on the Technic Launcher.
      Modpack Link: http://www.technicpack.net/modpack/the-1710-pack.453902
      Modpack API: http://api.technicpack.net/modpack/the-1710-pack
      You can connect with mc.theenderverse.com .
      Restarts are every three hours, and the server takes about two and a half minutes to restart. If it is down and I haven't left a post on the official website about why it is down, it is just a restart.
      See you soon!

      So, I'm using a mac and I downloaded the launcher and when I open it, it tells me that I need to install the Java Runtime Environment.  I clicked on the link it gave me and downloaded and installed the latest Java, and I even checked to make sure that I had the latest version and that it was working.  After I did all that I came back and tried to open the launcher and it told me the exact same thing.  I did it a couple more times and tried re-downloading the launcher and restarting my computer and my web browser and nothing seemed to work.  Could someone please tell me what I am doing wrong?
