I want to make a mod without hurting another mod!

Hey guys!

So I recently created an account and decided i'd like to make a Periodic Table mod! But I then found that Tanman2001 has already made a periodic table mod!

link to his mod: https://mcreator.pylo.co/modification/6255/periodic-table-elements-mod

I still want to make the mod as i want to get a feel for what MCreator has to offer, but I don't want Tanman2001 to think i'm stealing his idea and make him feel bad!

Any tips?

ask him if it would be fine, and try to add things and change things so it isn't a "carbon" copy :P

If it is the same idea, but executed differently, that's absolutely fine imo. There are only so many ideas in the world before we start overlapping each other. I agree with letting him know you are working on your own periodic table themed mod, just for a heads up since it is a little specific. If you make a mod that is similar to another that has a wide idea like farming, transportation, decorative items, etc. I don't see a need to get a hold of the other author(s) that made those kinds. Those are very general themes, and understandably will be used for inspiration a lot. Anyway, good luck! Can't wait to see what you make. :)
