Submitted by Klemen on Sun, 12/27/2015 - 21:17

MCreator for Minecraft 1.8.8 is here. Make mods for the latest version of Minecraft supported by the Minecraft Forge. This update also adds custom JSON and OBJ models not only for items and blocks, but also for tools and guns. A lot of bugs were fixed too. Hit read more to check what will this update bring!

You can also find this article on the Pylo's blog.

This update adds quite a lot of things. MCreator got updated to the Minecraft Forge for Minecraft 1.8.8 which is still beta, but is stable enough to be used for modding. So in order to use MCreator's mods for Minecraft 1.8.8, one has to download Minecraft Forge for client 1650 or higher which can be found here. We have also updated MCSkin3D to the latest version. Now MCreator supports custom 3D OBJ models as previously annouced on Pylo's blog. Now I'm going to higlight some of the intercace changes with some screenshots:

OBJ model selection in item creation menu, improved information form can be seen too

New alignement of the tools menu can be seen here alongside with the new Launch blender button

Slight improvement of the variable list

MCreator now has 64 and 32 bit option so it can take advantage of all the memory available. You can now download the version you prefer as we have also improved our download page. Do you like new layout. Leave a comment if you do! We have also verified that MCreator runs on Windows 10 and this update was actually compiled on one of our Windows 10 machines.

If it says you do not have java, make sure you downloaded the correct version (32 or 64 bit MCreator) and if that doesn't work go to java and download the correct version of java for your computer. (preferably the latest version) of course I don't know if this would work because I did not get this error. Klemen, MCreator 1.6.1 is working fine on setup. I'll be telling you some bugs shortly. :) (that is if I find any derp)

@#13 i really dont get it really for some people it works fine but for me (and other people) it gives a no java error thing but i do have latest version of java and downloaded the right bit for my computer i even try both bits and still got error and i am using windows 10 if that could be a reason.

@#13.1 Redownload and reinstall MCreator. We have updated the download that works and doesn't have this bug. Windows 10 is not an issue as this is the recommended OS for the 1.6 verion. Read the changelog ;)

@#13 Thank you for your bug reports in the future :) BTW, this error people are reporting only happens on some computers. We have managed to replicate the bug and have already reuploaded fixed version of MCreator.

Is there a place where I can find an updated explanation on how to update my mods? The wiki seems a little outdated.

I try to make a gui where you can change items with adding and consuming items on button push but its not working... Bug or my fault?
