How do I make a mod with a dependency?

Won't fix

Issue description

I'm currently trying to make an addon for a mod I like for private use (though if I get the creator's permission, I may release the addon publicly). However, I've run into a problem in which Mcreator won't let me compile a mod with a dependency. Is there any way to get around this? If it's of any help, the errors lie when I try to import parts of the mod and have a block drop items from the mod.

Issue comments

Implementing such feature would be way too complicated. If you do custom coding with dependency, you can place the dependency the same way one would with normal mod development, but I can't provide much help there as this is more Minecraft Forge oriented topic.
