New .jar mods are not showing up in Forge
Tue, 01/12/2021 - 18:29 (edited)

Hi,

 

My 8 year old twin sons are learning to add mods. 

They all work in the ‘demo’ mode (green triangle arrow, top right) 

I’ve managed to Export the first 10 mods as .jar files, in the ‘mods’ folder - these work fine in Forge.

 

But, he’s created 4 or 5 more mods now and these new ones are not working in the forge game, after I export them into ‘mods’.

Do I need to press something to tell forge to look for the new mods?

Last time, I fixed it by changing the name of Mod Version , changing the namespace Mod ID and changing the Mod display name - all in General Settings in ‘workspace settings’. Then I exported all the .jar mods one by one from scratch.

 

please tell me there’s a quicker way?

the problem might be that…

the problem might be that some mods are for a different version than the older mods.

 

for example, the first 10 mods were for 1.14.4 but the new ones are for 1.15.2 which wouldnt work. Make sure they are all the same version.

 

Also, you have to export them one by one. Its just how mcreator works. Unless you have Multipule mcreator tabs open.
