Yes, INVedit is discontinued. There will be no more updates or new features coming from my end. You can continue to use it in the feature, new items will just be missing, unless you find or take the time to update the items.txt file that comes with it, along with the images.
As for the reasons why I stopped, there's two main ones:
- This tool is now almost 3 years old, and I've learned quite a bit in all this time. I can barely even look at its code anymore, let alone update it to add additional features. INVedit probably has been useful to a lot of people, but there's a time where everything has to end. This is it.
- While all the positive feedback from you was great, there have been very few donations, and they became more and more rare over the years. Even after I put a lot of work into updating INVedit to add more features, like editing enchantments.
Now lets quickly talk about the future. The source code of this tool is open, and pretty much public domain. Anyone crazy enough and with enough time can update it. Peacem4k3r and DHIteration actually started that and made some pretty sweet changes, but I haven't heard anything of them lately.
And then there's mCraftPanel, who is working on a successor to INVedit, starting from scratch, which is probably the best idea.
I will of course update this thread when any of them release their projects.
If you know of any similar, or maybe just helpful tools which I should take note of in the helpful tools section below, please let me know!
Happy minecrafting everyone!
