Java logoHave you ever seen that fantastic buildings in Minecraft that the most skilled users are able to create, sometimes giving rise to a whole setting, a virtual world that reproduces scenarios and movies or novels set? To be able to recreate them over to you too much patience you have to be able to create amod”.

Actually there are many types of mod, just as there are various software that you can use if you are not a programmer can write code directlybut in all cases you have to have a minimum knowledge of Java (and then you have to download the Java Development Kit, or JDK, from here). Do not give up and know that, in the casethere are also specific forums where you can seek tutorials for any further need of youTo help you create a mod you can download Minecraft Code Pack (or MCP, download from here its releases) and Minecraft Forge (download from here its releases).

Minecraft ForgeRemember that you first have to separate each path with a semicolon. Go in Explorer, Operating System, Program Files, Java, JDK, bin. Copy the path (“URL directory“) which should be of the type: “C: \ Program Files \ Java \ jdk1.8.u_45 \ bin” (numbers and letters after identifying the version of the Java program and change in the case of new updates). Now go to the Control Panel \ Performance and Maintenance \ System. Click on “Advanced” then on “Environment Variables” and on the button “modifyafter selecting the path. Put a semicolon at the end of the variable value, then paste the URL directory that you previously copied. Now (low window) click on the button “new” of “System Variables“. Variable nam: JAVA_HOME, Variable value: C: \ Program Files \ Java \ jdk1.8.u_45 (or the name of the new version of the JDK that you downloaded). Do not touch the bin folder.

Prompt comandiNow you can proceed with the unzipping: first check that everything works properly. Click on “Start”, then on “Run”, now type “cmd” and press send, you will open a window in black background of Windows (“prompt command“), type “javac”: if it worked, well, otherwise you miss a few previous step, redo from scratchOnce everything works put the folder Forge unzipped in MCP folder. Run “Gradlew.bat”, if it works you have done everything correctly. Now you can copy the URL dir in the opened prompt command. To do this in the window of the prompt command, typecd”, then put a space and paste by pressing the right mouse button (Ctrl + V does not work in prompt command), then press send. Type “gradlew Decomp Workspace” and press send.

This will download the Forge src file. Now you can open Eclipse, select your workspace in the Forge folder you downloaded (not in the “built” or “src” folder) and create a new Java Project Name with the name you prefer and it’s done, you can start programming your mod and create your own customized virtual world. What do you say? You dont know how to programme? Then continue to follow Mondivirtuali.it even through our account on Twitter and our fanpage on Facebook (but remember: Mondivirtuali is also on Flickr, on Pinterest, on Scoop.it e su Paper.li and also on Youtube). We will explain shortly how to proceed to programm a Minecrafts mod.
