Website update and professional version survey

After a few software updates, it was time for another website update. We have made a survey for the community about professional version of MCreator for commercial use too.

Commercial version survey

As this one is quite important for both us and you - the users of MCreator, we have decided to make this the main point of this article.

In the past, we have been asked a lot about an option to create unbranded mods and mods that can be used commercially (ads on the website of the mod, AdFly, ...). As MCreator is free, our decision was to keep it free as long as mods made by the community are free and non-commercial too.

We could change this by providing a commercial license (version) of MCreator. Users that would like to use MCreator for commercial purposes and would like to have more commercially and professionally oriented features would simply pay for the commercial license. Such license could include other services such as mod update server, more storage, no ads on the website, collaborative work support too. MCreator, as is, would stay free, but we would offer a commercial version as well.

We made the survey to find out how much interest there is for such version so we get some insight on whether we should move things in the direction of option for the commercial version.

Each answer will help us decide on how to shape the future of MCreator better

Website update

Now back to the website update. You most likely noticed that we have changed the front page a bit. The image slider has been removed and a bigger Download button has been added, so the users can now easily find the download of MCreator. Issue tracker categories and MCreator versions are now clickable. By clicking on the MCreator version or the issue category, all issues tagged with this version or category are shown, so users can now find the tickets they are looking for faster.

New wiki section pages were introduced too. These section pages group similar wiki pages together. You can jump between pages in the same section from the wiki pages themselves too. Wiki homepage has been improved with a new design and some new links were added to find important pages easier.

Bug with comments being posted multiple times in some cases was fixed and another comment bug with pagination of comments not working after posting a comment was fixed.

We have improved the design and user experience of the website under maintenance page too, but we hope you didn't notice this one and you won't have to :)

What is next?

We are working on some new interesting surprises for you, so stay tuned on our social networks for the announcements! We have some nice plans for MCreator 1.8.2 update too. Stay tuned and don't forget to help us by filling out the survey and providing us with your aspects on the commercial version of MCreator.

I really like this idea! I'd like to see it come into action in the near future.

Do you think you can say something about the results of the survey if you think the time is right? or was it just a internal thing. i really would like to know how much people would also pay for mcreator, which price, etc. :D

With a "learn to code bundle for Minecraft with it" for example I want to make a block that generates with a hidden 1 number code, that can be decoded using a 'code breaker' item.

Sorry, but even though this defeats the programs objective, I would like it to teach you how to code for
Minecraft while in the program. This also could help other players make tutorials on how to do more things
as well as learn to code in java.

Are bugs with Wiki pages like broken gifs and size of headers fixed ? :D
Also will you bring Live Chat back to the website ?

No, I am still not sure what is causing that your GIFs don't work unfortunately as I can't reproduce this as they work when I try it.

Regarding live chat, the main issue is moderation of such chat so I am not sure we will add this back. And another issue is that information is lost. Users ask the same thing all over again on live chats, but on the other side on forums, the info and findings (fixes and tips) remain public so all can learn and read the posts of users.

I guess that 1.8.2 will be released on 25 dec as Modders Christmas present lol

hey Klemen. there's a new model making program you can use for MCreator called Blockbench it's like techne but it's better

take a look for yourself :D https://blockbench.net/

I am aware of BlockBench and MCreator supports it. Just import its models in MCreator. We will remove launchers for all external software in the upcoming updates so the users are not biased into the use of one tool.

are you guy's still working on more MCreator updates for 1.7.10 Minecraft version. don't know why I like it so much but the news ones are fine :D please add in the music disk tool please :)
