Not a Valid Mod File
Mon, 08/02/2021 - 23:20 (edited)

I exported my mod into a .zip file from the workspace, and then I renamed the extension to .jar. I placed it into my mods folder and once everything loaded, I got an error saying it was not a valid mod file. I am unsure how to make it actually usable as I am new to modding.

 

Also, I watched a tutorial on how to export it but when I did it, the only option was a .zip file and I tried extracting that (I have winRAR so I extracted there but no new file was created) and there was no .jar option.

Ah I found it, it was in a different tab and I didn't notice at first. It works now, thanks!
