Submitted by Klemen on Sun, 12/27/2015 - 21:17

MCreator for Minecraft 1.8.8 is here. Make mods for the latest version of Minecraft supported by the Minecraft Forge. This update also adds custom JSON and OBJ models not only for items and blocks, but also for tools and guns. A lot of bugs were fixed too. Hit read more to check what will this update bring!

You can also find this article on the Pylo's blog.

This update adds quite a lot of things. MCreator got updated to the Minecraft Forge for Minecraft 1.8.8 which is still beta, but is stable enough to be used for modding. So in order to use MCreator's mods for Minecraft 1.8.8, one has to download Minecraft Forge for client 1650 or higher which can be found here. We have also updated MCSkin3D to the latest version. Now MCreator supports custom 3D OBJ models as previously annouced on Pylo's blog. Now I'm going to higlight some of the intercace changes with some screenshots:

OBJ model selection in item creation menu, improved information form can be seen too

New alignement of the tools menu can be seen here alongside with the new Launch blender button

Slight improvement of the variable list

MCreator now has 64 and 32 bit option so it can take advantage of all the memory available. You can now download the version you prefer as we have also improved our download page. Do you like new layout. Leave a comment if you do! We have also verified that MCreator runs on Windows 10 and this update was actually compiled on one of our Windows 10 machines.

Brilliant... A new update is coming for a mod of mine :}

Whenever I try to launch 1.6.1 and it says "No Java?". It works on pasts updates anyway like 1.5.6 - 1.6.0.
There is an update ready on 1.7.10 and I want it for 1.8.8.

Lol I've been on "installing forge" for about an hour now

Nice to use.

Unfortunately hit an issue with my custom model idea, as transparency is seemingly not available for custom uploads.

Still, great interface or someone new to modding. Top work!

@#12 Transparency should work. Check for some tutorials on the YouTube. If we are talking about custom OBJ models, we will make official tutorial soon.
