As someone who makes all there xp on planet minecraft legitimately, it makes me angry to see someone upload a mod, and then get a ton of xp, and then see it was made with mccreator.

First off, to those of you who are new to planet minecraft, and have not yet read the rules, and were thinking of uploading an mcreator mod, don't do it. it will get flagged, you will loose all xp gained from it, and in some cases, get temp banned from pmc.

How to tell if a mod was made with mcreator:
Im going to teach you how to tell if a mod was made with mcreator, and then flag it so you can clean up pmc.
1.) When your scrolling down planet minecraft's mod section, look for content that adds only a few things, such as a few new blocks, new items, 1 or 2 new mobs, or new crafting recipes. These are the easiest to find.
2.)When you find on that looks suspicious, click on it, and check the persons xp level on pmc. i would say if there 10 or below, that raises even more suspicion.
3.) Now, look at the description, it it well written out, or is it half a paragraph long? Does it look like the person knows what he/shes doing? Do they state in the credit, tags, or in the description that he/she made the mod in mcreator? This is the second to last suspicion raising sign that it is not legitimate.
4.) Finally, if you suspect them of making it with mcreator, download the mod. Then open up the .zip file and look for class files with mcreator in the name. If you find one, you can be sure that it was made in mcreator. Go back to the mod, and click the flag button under the download button area. Select program-generated content, and enter some information on why you suspect it of being program-generated. Finally click submit.

That's it! You helped clean up planet minecraft from people wanting to get fame from something they did not make legitimately. Remember, a moderator must review the flagged submission, and then remove it, so you may see it there for a bit.

MCreator is legal, but the 1) IS illegal. And, how would people with 1-10 level get experience to level 11?

Sorry to bump this post, but MCreator gets a lot of bad rep because of this and it's sad. Granted, I get it if some of the mods are lazy, but I made my own and spent months on it using MCreator. (I'm not that intelligent with coding. I tried learning it and for the life of me I still don't understand.) And no, I'm not posting my mod, it's for personal and friend use, but still. Shaming people for making mods with it because they aren't as smart as you isn't called for. Not trying to sound rude in any way, just wanted to get my point across. Have a great day!

I don't see what's wrong with using Mcreator to make a mod. Why be so harsh to people that spend HOURS trying to make an Mcreator mod? I personally use Mcreator to learn how to code (with the view code button).

You learn no code because it uses its own functions and variables, learn java then MC Forge Modding, then you learn somthing

You are correct, and I am now using actual code to make mods! (For some reason I think coding is easier than using MCreator!)

Well that seems unfair, especially when I use Mcreator to recompile my mods becuase my dumb JDK won't ever allow it. So I basically use it to tie my mod together.

"Then open up the .zip file and look for class files with mcreator in the name." How would I do that?

Thanks! Since I am a modder I am going to begin looking for these things. I don't want people cheating to make mods.

The only time I use MCreator is to create a preview of how I want my mods to work and then I just create the code from scratch in my preffered mod coding software which is Eclipse
