Using something thats bugged and calling it a feature
Fri, 08/28/2020 - 06:04 (edited)

I was just wondering if anyone else comes across issues like this and how y'all feel and think about it.. What happens is when working on a mod I come across something that won't work as initially intended, or it just bugs out of your control to fix..

For example, one I'm working on right now, There is a huge bug that I can't fix and I'm either to proud or embarrassed to ask for help, and no matter what I do to try to get it to stop doing what it's doing, it keeps doing it. The only thing I can do is minimize the frequency it happens..

After many hours of getting nowhere, I'm just about to leave it the best I can, getting the bug to happen as low as possible, and just say it's a feature and come up with some lore about how and why it does what it does..

depends on what it does and wether or not it fits also don't be afraid to ask for help you might not get a solution but you might also fix it perfectly. also sometimes it's not even something mcreator or any modder can really fix cause Minecraft itself is a buggy mess when you get down into the nitty gritty

Most of the time, these bugs CAN be fixed...it just takes time and testing to do. If you don't mind could you either screenshot your issue and explain it to us, or join the Discord here: https://discord.gg/hHJTR3 and ask in the #Modding-Support channel for help? I, as well as many others will be there to help if you ever need it.

I am making a new lucky block mod, and changing around my green thorn mod to something else.. and what is happening, when you click the button for the prize, it will show up in the slot but disappear when you click on it, the only good thing about it is that you have to store up points to get a prize, and when the bug happens you don't lose points when you don't get the item..  I was going to just say that it randomly does that, and just sometimes you don't get the item :D.

Also, currently it seems to be working right, I have been clicking the prize button for 2 hours now, and can't seem to make it bug out.. I basically double wrapped my procedures with an extra if prize claimed is false then run prizewheel, it seems kind of silly to have an extra check to make sure the prize was not given, but it works...   

what's funny is some of my other mods have features that began as a bug that I couldn't fix. then learned how to fix it but kept the bug in. :D
