I had an idea for a really simple mod but i cant find a place that can teach me.

I need to know what programs i would need yo get it all done. Or if you know of a good website that will teach it to me, post a link.

Thanks for the help.

Start with the Minecraft Coder Pack (MCP). They have tutorials on their wiki.

Also see this thread, it's a pretty good tutorial

Look up a video on how to install Mcp ( Minecraft coder Pack )

things you need :

MCP ( Minecraft Coder Pack )

Any Text Editor : examples : note pad : eclipse : note++

Java JDK ( Java Development Kit ) http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk-7u4-downloads-1591156.html
make sure you choose your operating system.

Minecraft (Vanilla) http://www.minecraft.net/

Note if i were to pick the best text editor it would be eclipse. http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/
choose any download but i chose classic eclipse 3.7.2

reasons to pick eclipse :

Eclipse lets you test your mod right from the program.
tells you if there are errors or warnings.
has a tool bar for every thing you need to mod .
note : these are just some of the reasons.

Hope i helped you.Posted Image

I can't code, but if you start to make the mod, I can make textures and stuff.

I am posting this here because if the title of the topic. I am looking for first hand help (skype or teamspeak, may even try something else) in learning to make a minecraft mod and texture packs. I know there are dozens of videos out there but I will be honest, I do so much better working with someone who knows and can help me out because I cant get a video to answer my questions yet, LOL. I am willing to work with anybody or anything(you know who you are,LOL) but prefer a more mature helper, I am a gaming grandfather who is doing this to play and have fun with his great grandchildren,grandchildren and even my children(damn will they not ever grow up). If you can help give me a nudge here. Greatly appreciate anyhelp.

In order to easily make a mod, download Eclipse, and install it. If you don't already have the java JDK, install the appropriate version for your OS. After that, download MCP. In order to make a mod, you'll need some sort of mod loader. I recommend using forge's built in loader, since forge has a ton of useful hooks.

Now, extract MCP and place it somewhere convenient. Also, extract forge, and place the "forge" folder in the archive into your MCP folder. You'll also need the minecraft server jar, and client jar. Take your entire minecraft "bin" folder (I trust you know where that is), and put it into the "jars" folder in your MCP folder. Your server jar also goes into this folder.

Once you have your jars situated, open up that "forge" folder, and, depending on your system, do the following:
Macintosh/Linux:
Spoiler:

Windows:
Spoiler:

If you installed everything correctly, you should now have an extracted minecraft in your "src" folder. You could start modding from here, but it's alot easier to use an IDE like eclipse. Open up Eclipse, and wait for it to load up. Once it's loaded, click on "file" and then click on "switch workspace". In the box that appeared, click on "other". In that director box, click on "browse", and select the "eclipse" directory in your MCP directory.

I'll leave you there, since there's plenty of tutorials online on how to make a mod Posted Image

If you have any more questions, you can PM me. I'll try and reply as soon as I can.
