Hello, my name is jbond98, I am a YouTuber and Minecraft Modder, and welcome to my modding tutorials! You can check out my YouTube Channel, and my most popular mod, The Wolfestone Mod if you would like.

I'm going to start off fresh, and perfect for beginners, but eventually I'll have some advanced tutorials here too! My goal is to share my modding knowledge with other minecraft modders, and to eliminate some of the problems that Minecraft 1.3.1+ is causing modders. I will also try to explain everything in as much detail as possible, so not only will you be able to see what to do, you'll also learn what to do!

You can now download these tutorials in a PDF file! It's a bit of a rough copy, but I'll try to work out the kinks, and I'll update it periodically:

Minecraft modding doesn't require much previous knowledge, but before diving into the world of Minecraft modding, I highly recommend reading Kovu's general Java tutorials. All of the terminology and information that any beginner needs to know before starting an in-depth Java project.

Please STOP asking for mob tutorials. There is going to be no mob tutorial soon or in the near future. If you decide to ask for one, your comment will be ignored. If you decide to try other tutorials, I wish you the best of luck in your modding endeavors and in finding a mob tutorial that suits you.

How to get help:


IF YOU CANNOT FOLLOW THESE SIMPLE INSTRUCTIONS, YOU WILL NOT BE HELPED. This does not go for anyone else you wants to help you. If you are someone who knows what the problem is, and you would like to help out, please do. I encourage other modders to come and help others when I don't have a chance.

This is only applies to my, personal help:

I will only help you if you are following my tutorials. If it is something out of the realm of these tutorials, then I will most likely not help you, and I will know based on your error report if you are doing something from these tutorials. If you ask me for help with entities and rendering I won't help you because I am still not sure on how to fix all of those problems in 1.3.2

If you follow those instructions, please ask for help by posting the following:
  • mod_*** code

  • Brief description of what your mod is supposed to do

  • The problem

  • Other class code that is associated with the problem
If you ask for help in any other way, you WILL BE IGNORED.

Sorry if this sounds too harsh, but this is the only way for me to properly filter out who really follows directions and needs help the most. I have had an influx of questions recently, and I am too busy to answer every single question, mostly the ones that are just an error report or of the likes.

Any other comments or concerns are welcome! Want to drop in and say "Hi"? Sure! Just don't paste an error report and expect me to help you.




NO CODE, NO HELP. END OF STATEMENT


A word about proper indentation:
Whenever you program anything using any language, it is crucial to properly indent and space out your code. This help organize everything, and it makes it easier for you to see where things start and end. It is possible to write full games in java using only ONE line, but please, do not try to do this.

Proper code always starts off with the main method, this is always going to be your public class *** method. The words public class ***, and the curly braces for the method will all be on the left margin. The next function in that main method will be indented, and so on. The code tags on the minecraftforums do not properly indent your code, so what you see here is NOT proper indentation. As much as it bugs me, I really can't do anything about it. If you use my code, though, and you are in eclipse, you can always highlight what you just pasted in, and go to Source -> Correct Indentation, also Crtl + I. Make sure the code is highlighted! And eclipse will auto-indent everything correctly.

Future Tutorials

-Dimensions
-Adding New Potions

-Multi-textured Block
-New Flowers
-New Torch


Feel free to suggest new tutorials in the comments below! I will answer questions also, just be sure to include a proper error report if you want help! Other general questions are fine too.

My friend, DreadKyller is going to be doing video tutorials on 1.3.2 modding very soon. TheInstitutions is also a great choice for video tutorials, but a lot of his videos are outdated :/

I know the Wolfestone Mod is still for 1.7.3, but we're working on getting it updated. It will be released as soon as ModLoader is updated to 1.3.2

No, the PATH variable is for using the Java JDK and Eclipse. Downloading and playing mods shouldn't need that. You should be fine.

One word, ModLoader ;) It's the most helpful mod out there. It helps people make mods,  but no one can make a mod that actually "codes for you" haha.
