Currently, we have limited features but we plan to add more content and release stable builds as the development goes on.

  • If you are using the modification for 1.14.4 you will need to use MMP UUID 1.2.0 for "General Use"
  • If you are using the modification for 1.15.2 you will need to use MMP UUID 1.3.0 for "General Use"

Simply put newer versions will be supported for sure, but anything older is not possible with MCreator and only newer versions will get new features.

    nice mod, i like camera, and all these your blocks gonna be awesome

    I think there should be some way to disable the cameras. Like burning one and all it displays is static. Nice Mod.

    3.1.0 will allow of turning off of cameras will prevent people from viewing them, however at the moment it is only for the owner or if the block has permission set to allow this to happen by anyone. However, I have more advanced plans outside of the viewing mechanics planned for this mod which could find their place to allow overriding of this feature.
