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:

Can someone please tell me why every time when using the program and I have an element that adds an item/block the game crashes.

Every time it only gives me this "Process 'command 'C:\Users\***\Desktop\MCreator 1.6.9 [1.9.4] Windows 32bit (1)\jdk32\bin\java.exe'' finished with non-zero exit value -1"

In next version add: Custom name for parts of armor, import techne block model (.java or .tcn), custom tab for plant, portal igniter and spawn mob egg, add shapless recipe in block, item creating.

(I am from Poland...)

@#89.1 But , please add the import block model of techne to mcreator . How does block there is the 3d model but please add import block of techne . When modeling a tired and just now I noticed that I can not do this with techne .

everything is great in this update but I have 1 question: For "if right clicked on block" I want to use "remove item from inventory" but I can't select a block, how can I fix this?

Oh and if ranged mobs are implemented, it would be nice to also choose between arm animation of using a bow and an arm swinging animation (like for wands). Then I could make an a really good Herobrine Mob that shoots fireballs with a scythe. xD

@#91 We might implement this. It depends on the time required to fix mandatory bugs first and to update MCreator to Minecraft 1.10.2. I was really busy in the past two weeks and I will have limited internet connection next week but I hope I will manage to release this update as soon as possible.

This is great! I am still getting into the features of MCreator but this update is very good! (I had 1.6.8 before) Luckily, I didn't have any important mods, so I reinstalled the whole thing.

I can't make a mob chase you.The game just chrashes. Pls help

This Update doesn't work! A lot of player noticed it! The test doesn't work and the Export too!
Please fix this D:
