Hey there. I'm interested in making mods for Minecraft, but i'm honestly not sure where to start. I have some knowledge in coding using C# since i've worked with Terraria before, but i'm not sure about Minecraft. Should I just start learning Java and then jump right into it? What will I need for developing the mod?

recently rediscovered this account and the memories have been flowing back, let me tell you. it's INSANE.
I would highly recommend learning Java before going into modding, which should not take to long since you already know C#. There are a plethora of good Java tutorials out there, both in text form and video form, just googling 'Java tutorial' should work. I also recommend properly learning how to use an IDE such as Eclipse or IntelliJ, because it will be immensely helpful when you are jumping from source file to source file trying to make sense of the vanilla Minecraft code. When you are ready to start modding, I can heartily recommend following Cadiboo's tutorial (if you are planning on using forge and not fabric that is).
I hope this will be of help to you, and good luck!
