MCreator 1.6.9 for Minecraft 1.9.4 - A Huge Improvement

Published by Klemen on Thu, 06/30/2016 - 13:54

MCreator for Minecraft 1.9.4 is finally here. The delay with this update was due to large amount of bugs that we decided to fix and some of them took some time to figure them out. This update is therefore not only Minecraft version update, but bug fix and performance update too. It also introduces some new and neat features. Check it out!

This MCreator is made for Minecraft 1.9.4 and uses recommended build of Minecraft Forge 1976. All mod types were updated to new version. We have cleaned up the code of MCreator and its libraries and removed large portions of unused code. As a result of this will be better performance of MCreator, smaller resource consumption and increased speed and responsiveness of the interface.

Improved outline generator in code editor

New autocomplete assistant is much smarter and better

We have improved code formatter in code editor. The code generated with MCreator is formatted by default using code formatter similar to the one found in Eclipse IDE. On top of that, we made import formatter which removes all the unused imports from generated code. As a result of this, code generated by MCreator now looks really nice, professional and is also much more readable which makes it great for new programmers to easily understand the code. Code editor was also improved. We have added back autocomplete which now works much better and is faster. We have improved the outline generator and added error bar which shows the location of the errors in the code itself.

We have also made some small interface improvements such as new colors and new icons on some sections. Due to large amount of changes in the core of MCreator, you cannot import old workspaces into this version. This is partly also due the fact that many things in Minecraft and Minecraft Forge changed and it's impossible to automate the update task.

Many mod types now support items and blocks with metadata which introduces many new options for the mod creation. Gun bullets can now also be blocks, user can now set potion effect levels as the event result, custom mobs can now wear equipment in both hands and much more. We have fixed custom sounds which didn't work, we have fixed some events and conditions, custom trees in biomes didn't work, mob equipment was not visible and many other fixes. Check the changelog below to see them all:

i highly recommend that you focus your abilities on updates for 1.9 and 1.8, not 1.10. The developers plan to release the next updates as fast as possible, and judging by how long mcreator updates take, their will probably be a new version by the time you release mcreator 1.10, and so on. I would wait until minecraft 1.11 or 1.12 before you make mcreator for a new version of minecraft. In the long run the next updates of minecraft will most likely blend together, thus people won't be mad if you skip a few versions. so instead of trying to update everything to new versions of minecraft, try to focus on new features, to the program. That is my opinion

@#16 +1 That's exactly what I was thinking
Since for the ones who don't know how to code, try to make a good mod it's reall hard due to these bugs

@#16 I totally agree with you, but the fact is that if we missed some updates, the amount of changes would cause even larger delays. Now as we follow each Minecraft version, the amount of changes between two of them is not that large and managable to update.

@#16.2 Good Point, you might still want to update 1.9 and 1.8 though, if you have time. For people doing larger mods, or mod series's, it takes a long time to update their mods, which they need to do if they want new Mcreator features.

@#16.2.1 I totally agree with you, but there is another obstacle. Many new features are added simply because such options were added to Minecraft Forge, so some of them just can't work with older versions of Minecraft.

@# don't you have different saves of mcreator? you don't need all the versions to have the same features, if you didn't update older versions they still wouldn't have the new features anyways.

@# i know so the old ones don't need to have the same features as the new ones, if you don't update them, they still won't have the new features. You can give them features that can be brought forward not backward.

when will mcreater for minecraft 1.10.2 or minecraft 1.10 be out????

Does anyone know how to make a wood variant? It would be nice if MCreator had classes for blocks so that specific blocks could have specific behaviors, like Blocks.Wood or Blocks.Stone and people don't have to create all the corresponding recipes

well I hope it will be out soon I real want to start making mod's for that version

Can you still update 1.8.9 versions of mcreator because it is annoying that custom tress don't spawn
