Hi All, I am looking for ideas for my final project and I have that crazy idea to write a mod for Minecraft as my kids love the game and play it all the time. I have no experience in modding or Forge but I am good in Java and I can spend up to 200 hours. What do you think could be done in that time? Any suggestions are very appreciated. Is Forge still the offical-unofficial API for Minecraft modding? I am a bit confused since I was reading about an official Plugin-API and addons the other day. I also asked the kids for some ideas and got the following list. Can you advise whether or not these are possible with Forge? I guess some things already exist. Also, as I should code, I am afraid that drawing textures and modelling take most of the time. What do you think from your experience? math zombies (which can only be killed by solving a math task showing above their head) - I admit this was my idea magpies stealing shiny things (like gems) from the players inventory divining rod / detector (or compass) which can be used to search for some rare ore (which can be selected in a gui) a sword that lights up when monsters are near (like Sting), made of moon stone meteor shower giving meteor stone teleporter phone booth for travelling around fireballs lembas (an elfish bread that makes you faster and full for long) poseidon's trident (or aquaman's) which can be used for letting it rain, fishing, healing in the water, breathing under water thor's hammer which can fire lightnings (unbreakable) emojis in chat messages flyable bats Thanks for any help. Kind regards
Hi! I promised my kids to make a mod for my thesis. I can spend 400 hours with this. I know Java very well, but I don't know Minecraft yet. So my plan is to start playing Minecraft and learn modding from the Forge documentation... but is it realistic? Can you give me some advise on how to get started? What are some good projects to start with, and what could be done in the given time frame by a MC/Forge newbie? Thanks for any suggestions.
