I haven't been prioritizing this too much, but I will be adding more to it periodically.

Edit: Just finished the Your First Item section. Sorry for the spacing problems with the code, it all seems to reset whenever I go to edit the OP. Time for some sleep.

Thank you. Thank you! Thank you, for this awesome tutorial. I have been perusing videos and forums for quite some time looking for a thorough tutorial to begin modding with forge, and all of them seemed to lead me to dead ends. After reading and completing your tutorial however, I finally got it to work. I am really looking forward to the next section.Posted Image

Wow, this looks great. Opening a spoiler looks like too much to read, but its over before you know it, and really good explained too.

I started modding a week ago, and im now looking whats the difference with Forge. As i see this, Forge looks more general instead of everything a new code, and more organized.

^ ^ Glad it helped. I didn't think many people were reading it, but I will try to update it more often from now on.

One question, where would I set up the path.

You can set the PATH variable by going to My Computer > System Properties > Advanced System Properties > Advanced > Environment Variables... Make sure you edit the User variables (top list) and not the System variables (bottom list).

If you do not have a PATH variable in User variables, create a new one by clicking the New... button under the User variables list.

If this is not clear enough, I can add a picture tutorial like the ones in the OP.

Good luck

^ ^ Glad they help. I am working on the Crafting tutorial right now and it will be posted within 30 minutes or so.
I will begin work on the texturing and icons tutorial immediately after and hope to have it done today as well.

You can follow this topic to easily catch changes and additions I make onto the tutorials. :)

Help! It's not automatically detecting the class file it needs to import and I haven't got a clue how to fix it! :o

Ok sorry about this post but i must left all this relife (spelled it wrong?) out. But i finally managed to get it to decompile minecraft!!!! ive been sitting here searching google to decompile it cause the forge thing doesnt do anything for me it just sits there doing nothing and sometimes it says the client and server jar arent there plus KyWest be a little more specific as to where the "Path" variable ends i searched it up and it needs to be where a java bin folder is (google it) (maybe im the dumb dumb here cause my pc  that im going to use for modding while at school then passing it over is very slow 1 GB RAM)
