A few requests I have
Sun, 03/28/2021 - 00:57

After messing around with the newly released 2021.1 snapshot for 1.16.5, I have a few suggestions for additions and improvements:
 

First off, With the new ability to have folders within a workspace, I REALLY wish I could move already existing mod elements into folders or move things from folder to folder, especially since I've been using the previous snapshot to make a prototype of a relatively large mod. 

Secondly, As I have stated before in a [completely ignored] forum topic, I would like the ability to specify quantities of a given item to be used in a recipe. There's not really much more to this request.

Finally, I think it would be pretty cool to expand what we can do with custom dimensions by having an interface to edit the generation settings in the json files without having to lock the code. I've messed around with the custom dimension json files a bit, and they're fairly easy to understand as raw code, but it would be even easier, especially for those who don't want to mess with code, to have a proper interface to change these settings.

 

I've done the best I can to explain these requests, but if something is at all unclear or if you have questions, please feel free to ask.

Vanilla minecraft doesn't even support that, nor does MCreator have an easy way of making crafting blocks at all.

He is probably working on that

Messing with JSON isn't like messing with Java. JSON isn't even code, it's just a special config with a special filename and an API to go with it. The problem with this is that most people will probably be fine with what is already here and those wanting custom generation will probably already be willing to edit JSON files.
