That's true in case that you

That's true in case that you do it directlly ,but in case that you use vanilla/forge methods and Java reflections it should bel fine, because you still do not edit or remove someone else's code

If you went into Minecraft code and made it so, ie: Grass dropped stone instead of dirt then that is illegal.

You do not need edit

You do not need edit Minecraft code for it. There are simple ways that Mojang , MCP and Forge left for people. And these methods are as illegal as adding an item. (Because for adding item you must add your Item to method in Forge's class GameRegistry.class , and this method adds it to vanilla array. For replacing and making items de facto removed from game is is similiar. You have a class , that you put in method of Forge's class and it is used from there by vanilla code. (Btw , this one is for example MCreator's GUI overlays and global events))

@#2

What makes you think it's illegal? By that logic, wouldn't all mods and all resourse packs also be illegal?

Legality of Modding Minecraft Source Code
Tue, 01/03/2017 - 15:26

This is a quote straight from Mojangs EULA and Terms of Agreement. The TOA, was updated in May.

If you've bought the Game, you may play around with it and modify it by adding modifications, tools, or plugins, which we will refer to collectively as "Mods." By "Mods," we mean something original that you or someone else created that doesn't contain a substantial part of our copyrightable code or content. When you combine your Mod with the Minecraft software, we will call that combination a "Modded Version" of the Game. We have the final say on what constitutes a Mod and what doesn't. You may not distribute any Modded Versions of our Game or software, and we’d appreciate it if you didn’t use Mods for griefing. Basically, Mods are okay to distribute; hacked versions or Modded Versions of the Game client or server software are not okay to distribute

Please note this line directly:
"You may not distribute any Modded Versions of our Game or software"

So, by Changing Minecrafts source code (making a square a triangle?) You are in breach of their contract and it is illegal. But, obviously nothing will be done about those mods as they are not causing problems. But, are still effectievly illegal as they violate the ToA.

@#8 Modding the software or client isn't the same as making a mod that modifies in-game properties though.

@#8 First off editing in game things with a mod is not illegal, however as the eula states editing the minecraft code (the encrypted one) is illegal. Using forge mods to edit what happens in game is by now means against the rules, unless the specifically find the mod to be bad for the overall minecraft experience, like griefing. A mod that changes in-game things but does not access encrypted files is ok. Your example of changing a cube to a triangle also doesn't make sense they added that as a feature of resource packs so once again it is fine without breaching and editing the encrypted source code. So mcreator could have edits to vanilla through forge code in their program, as long as the don't try and use the encrypted files because they are protected by copyright and are encrypted for a reason.
