WHY MCREATOR IS INCOMPLETE? - AND WHAT IS NEEDED?

I was recently very active on hunting bugs for Klemen for Mcreator 2021.1 - and we where really successful with finding various bugs wich where now fixed by klemen! there where issues like Variables getting reseted by entering dimensions, entity_glowing_layer issues wich caused entities to not spawn on servers and a few other things. im happy that Klemen works really well and really fast! he's always responsible to me and I hope he'll responsible for my list too!

 

SO, WHAT IS NEEDED? AND WHY?

MCreator offers many things! procedures, blocks, entities .. even Dimensions and Biomes! that's really great! and there's already a lot of good mods! as example all mods of CAZFPS are well made!

 

SO TELL ME NOW? WHAT IS NEEDED!

 

- FULL WOOD TYPE SUPPORT

what? we already support these? not really.

it feels often really annoying to play MCreator mods... and here's why:

I found a good looking block! and I want to make wooden extensions with it! ohh... I can't make a pressure plate? no buttons? okay fine.. let my try to come away from this island.. I need to make a Boat .. oh.. well here we are!

 

MCreator needs to support at least the Wood Type extensions. Means the users needs:
- Boat Entity Types (maybe with animation)
Pressure Plates & Buttons

If these where included MCreator mods would be much enjoyable!

 

- TEXTURE VARIATIONS

huh? what's that?

Minecraft uses for some textures such as the Minecraft:stone texture, variants for textures. Variants can be made with simple .json language.

you can change Blockstates and do Variants for Textures. (what do these variants?) did you ever wondered why some vanilla blocks have some variants of it self such as the stone? it brings more "change" in the world! and that's a really simple thing!

 

- DIMENSION ANIMATION RENDER

you can actually enter dimensions really fast because these portals blink you in those.

it would be good if the consumer has the option to use the Nether Portal animation wich can be found in their render classes.

it would just be more polished and enjoyable!

 

- FOCUS ON VANILLA FEATURES IMPORTANT FOR KLEMEN AND HIS CONTRIBUTEOS SUCH AS MAX AND GOLD.

Klemen has a few contributors wich is really great! but! instead of adding new features like "Custom Background for Tabs" or anything else you should focus on working on the vanilla features I wrote above! MCreator is really great for beginners but its un-enjoyable for Serverpack makers and Other devs since we need to delete those mods because we can't even make a boat of these beautiful looking blocks!

 

Klemen listen.. before you start slowing down the progress... think of these features for 2021.2! its important! don't listen to all other requests here since they mostly dawgs**** and not needed atm. Focus on the important things before you work on things they'll need just because its not in! they need a polished version and we devs and modpackt makers need mobs wich have the basics!

 

I hope to see these features in 2021.2 since I had to delete almost 8 MCreator mods just because these "basics" where not included.
and now! don't tell them to use procedures for a button please not.

 

 

in love Mark <3

These Wood Extensions are already made in MCToolKit so its really easy to just take those and put them in Mcreator, Unless I am mistaken and Mcreator doesnt work with MCToolKit

idk what MCToolKit is and even if its a fork of MCreator then the question is: can MCToolKit convert the MCreator mods? if yes then its fine. but atm I punished 8 mods from my server where 100 players are each day.

Indeed, pressure plates and buttons have already been added to MCToolkit. To explain you quickly what it is, MCToolkit is the project to continue the development of MCreator after Klemen begins to slow down updates.

Concerning boats, they are not blocks, but entities, so it ´s a bit more complex to implement than simply add a new block base.

You asked to work on Vanilla features first and you gave the example of the custom backgrounds for creative tabs. Forge adds several small feature like this one, so it doesn't take a lot of time to implement and it can help many users.

Ah i see! and the last question is it possible for your customers to „transfer“

old projects to MCToolKit?
