Hello all. I've been playing Minecraft for many years, and really enjoy all the mods the modmaking community has to offer. In the past couple years, I've learned to code in Java and have done quite a few projects in it, but would love to start modding Minecraft in my free time. How would I go about getting started?
Eventually, my goal is to make mods and APIs that drive compatibility between mods since that's always been a big problem for me and I would like to contribute towards a more compatibility modding space. Another thing I'd love to do is implement some more open and simple to use tools for adding temperature and other statuses to Minecraft.
Again, I'm completely new to modding Minecraft. I'd say my Java experience is intermediate. I already know some of the basics yadda yadda install Eclipse, what is a library. Just looking for good documentation or some tutorials.
