I was wondering if anyone know how to make a mod? I make fairly decent models for mobs, but I don't know how to code and get the monsters and items into the game. Does anyone know where there may be tutorial videos or something where I could find that information? If I could, I'd like to make a mod for 1.7
The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
These tutorials by Logibo here on the forums are really helpful, you'll have to set up Eclipse yourself I think or whatever environment you want to code in. But he gives you all you need. It's also written out clearly with pictures so there's no rewinding 30 million times.
Also there is a whole section for help with this stuff here on this forum, but this section is for posting finished products. The forge website has some good tutorials too, but last I checked most were out of date(pre-1.7).
for beginners, I suggest using MCreator, you dont really need to know how to program and it still lets you create basic mods.
unfortunately, you have to download and install Java JDK-7... manually, and create a path. a tutorial can be found here [skip to 4:55]:
