Ever wanted to make mod?

Requirements for Mac:

1. A new minecraft folder
2. An installed MCP folder (Minecraft Coder Pack)
3. ModLoader installed on your minecraft.jar
4. A file Editing programme (Ex. EditRocket)
5. Terminal (To find terminal, go into applications/Utilities/terminal.

Requirements for PC:

1. A new minecraft folder
2. An Editing programme (Ex. Notepad++)
3. There will be more things you will need (see in tutorial)


These files you will need to make your mod IF you use ModLoader for your mods!
Just click on the link then copy paste the code into a new folder on your Editing programme.
Make sure you get all the code and nothing else! Don't forget the "{" at the bottom!
Remember these files depend on what mod your trying to make!

If you want to make a mob:

ModLoader Template

(Scroll down to see tutorial)

Any other ModLoder Mod:

Modloader Template

(Scroll down to see tutorial)

For the ModelMob, if you're having errors, Only put this in your modelMob:

package net.minecraft.src;
public class ModelJack extends ModelBiped
public ModelJack()
super(1, 0.0F);

And if your getting errors in your mod_Mob then change:

ModLoader.AddSpawn(EntityMob.class, 500, EnumCreatureType.creature);


ModLoader.AddSpawn(EntityMob.class, 50, 10, 10, EnumCreatureType.creature);

If you don't understand any of this, watch the tutorial!


Modding involves a lot of code and you will need patience to make a mod.
Here I will put the mods from Easiest to Hardest. Please, if you are a
beginner start with something easy! When i started modding I started with 1.

1. Make your own crafting recipe!

4. Make your own tools!
5. Make your own ore!
6. Make your own armour!

never use Notepad or any other software like that, that will take you hours unnecessarily, use a software called eclipse it takes three of the stuff that you need in 2 rows into 1 and does a lot of stuff for you please consider
