Thank you for the ideas/difficulty. When I am done learning java I will give these a shot!Quote from jarthur36
Ok, heres a couple things to try:
Just to let you know, I dont actually want these but they are good challenges and will help you to learn yo uway aroudn the different functions,methods and precdures of every class.
1) Make leaf armour - Add a full set with a recipe that uses leaves, it would give very little protection. Difficulty: MEDIUM
2) Make a block that when stepped on triggers a lightning strike on the player that walked on it Difficulty: EASY
3) Make an Item that will absorb the nearest mob when you right click with it and can release the mob elsewhere when right clicking again Difficulty: MEDIUM - HARD
4) Make an item that will build a house at the location it is right clicked at consuming the item in the proccess. Difficulty: EASY - MEDIUM (depending on how complex the house is)
LOL I know what you mean. I don't want to make a mo 'ores mod or anything like that. I want to make something very cool. I just want some ideas to practice with like in the post above yours. I wont release these to the public, but only to practice and maybe use for reference. I am currently in the process of learning java, and modding should help me learn too. Thanks for the constructive criticism though!Quote from NukeDuck
Honestly, you shouldn't try learning to program this way. We don't need another "Mo' Ores" mod, or similar. Now that might sound a little harsh, but there are literally thousands of these "easy" mods already in existence, all made by people like you.
Instead, heed this advice; don't try to make a mod before you properly know Java. Look up some Java tutorials. Get to know your syntax, functions and operators as well as you possibly can. Then you will be truly ready to create a good mod, rather than simply wanting to create one, and you'll get a hell of a lot less errors along the way.
I know, because I started off in a similar way to you. I made small, pointless mods. But then, I realised that I should know the platform before I get on the train, you see. So, I toyed around with Java for a while. I created small applets and games, completely unrelated to Minecraft. And now, if I see an error, most of the time I will know how to fix it.
I hope I've been of help to you. I can almost promise that if you follow this your mods will be a lot better.
