Update made MCreator useless for me without 1.12.2
Thu, 05/28/2020 - 08:14 (edited)

I was working on mod that adds alien planet covered with extremely deep ocean, and everything was fine in 2020.2 except one thing: there was no fish-like swimming AI task in that version, so all mobs was limited to crawling creatures, floating creatures like vanilla slime on top of water, and flying creatures. I was waiting for 2020.3 update because it promised fish-like swimming AI task, but now I found absolutely terrible thing: 2020.3 dropped 1.12.2 support, and is now useless for me, because mods i am working on are intended for use in 1.12.2 server modpack, and switching server to newer version is not an option at this moment, and it is unknown when it will be possible. Is there any option to add 1.12.2 code generator to 2020.3, and, if yes, will new AI task work with it?

The AI task doesn't really work like you would expect, it stays underwater, but it doesn't really move. And it's not like squid or turtle movement either. But, it is worth it. Also, I think someone is working on a generator for 1.12.2 but it's not offical.

Is there any workaround?…
Wed, 05/27/2020 - 15:18

Is there any workaround? Like writing AI task in java and add it to mcreator? Because I have some minecraft modding experience with forge and eclipse, like adding new block/item, vanilla model based mob with different texture and AI, and handling events like preventing custom monsters from suffocating in space in galacticraft-based modpack.

Change versions of what?…
Wed, 05/27/2020 - 15:42

Change versions of what?
MCrearor? But previous version has no fish-like swimming AI task, and this is why I want 2020.3.
Forge version in MCreator workspace? But 2020.3 has no 1.12.2 support :(
Change Minecraft version on server? It is not my server, I am only working on content for modpacks, and admin said 1.14 and newer are not ready to be used as that server base (something related to Sponge I thing, but not sure).

You did something wrong then I believe. Open a bug report if this is the case as in my tests, it swam just fine, it can attack too if selected.

To the OP: 1.12.2 generator is now opensource for the community to update if there is interest: https://github.com/Pylo/MCreatorGenerator-Forge-1.12.2

I am the only dev, I can't keep up with three versions.

"I am the only dev, I can't keep up with three versions."

I thought Matej was a dev. Also, the AI task seems to work now, must have been laggy.

But mod must be for 1.12.2, which is unsupported in 2020.3

Thanks, maybe this will help

He is a dev indeed but the generator part is under my work. He works mostly on resources, icons, testing, texture editor, and a secret project ;)

I want to help update the 1.12 generator but I'm on mac and plugin creation on mac is broken (not on mcreator's side, mac generates a lot of useless extra files like ".DS_STORE" and can't compress or uncompress files properly)
