Update 4: Now it works in 1.2.4 (We are getting a little tired of the buggy releases coming out of Mojang). Update 3: Released version for 1.2.3 Update 2: We made it so now it spawns baby cows and baby mooshrooms. Update 1: We made it do that it works with Redstone.
Hello, I am Kew. I am 10 years old. I have created a mod that enables you to create cowbells in minecraft.
My dad helped me. I want to learn how to mod, so he is teaching me. We have started small with a simple block that can do things when the user clicks on them like playsounds and spawn mobs.
We are going to make more mods in the future. Next one is a block that spawns a huge pirate ship or maybe an airplane or a t-rex or.. .. to do that we need to learn how to make our own mobs with 3D models.
What Does This Mod Do.
This mod enables you to make cowbells and when you right click on the cowbell, it will play a sound and spawn a cow, or if you are lucky, a moo-shroom.
There is a secret underneath the cowbell.
Update: Now usable with redstone.
To craft a cowbell you will need 5 gold,1 gold nugget and 1 piece of string.
Also, we managed to get the block to appear in the creative menu (CreativeContainer). That bit was harder.
Its great to see some as young as 10 getting into Java, I salute you good sir. This looks pretty good for your first mod. I wish I had gotten into Java/modding when I was your age, I'm 17, so it's getting pretty annoying to learn as I don't have time. Keep it up lad, and you may have a future in coding video games :biggrin.gif:
EDIT: I have a mod idea for you to try out if you want. Could you try and make jukeboxes redstone powered? That would be awesome
Great job. If you guys need to make your own models there is a program called Techne. I also had I seas for updates. You could make the block redstone activated, and have a vowbell item that converts the cow into a model with a cow bell. Just ideas :biggrin.gif:
