VCS stands for Version Control System. It is a software tool used by developers to manage changes to source code and other digital assets over time.

With a VCS, developers can track changes to their codebase, collaborate with other developers on the same project, and revert changes if necessary. VCS also allows developers to work on different versions of the codebase simultaneously and merge changes together.

In MCreator, specifically, Git(Hub) is used

Why does it crash Minecraft when you use custom Trades for a custom Villager Profession?

Well, this update has more features than a Swiss Army Knife! Now, if only we could add a corkscrew mod element...just kidding, let's stick to the basics for now.

Not sure what the issue is, but experiencing severe compilation errors trying to transfer a mod w/locked components from the previous version; seems convinced that several pretty crucial packages, (ModItems, ModEntities, etc), don't exist; and regenerating code seems to have no effect. TLDR; wait for full release if you're gonna convert something.

Most likely a plugin issue. Waiting for full release and more importantly not reporting bugs will just postpone those bugs into the full release, meaning they will be fixed in the release after, which can leave bugs in the wild for quite a while

I love this snapshot and the features that come a long with it. I think added a procedure that would enable block/items or procedures to register only when a certain mod id is loaded would be a wonderful feature. Many modern mods add compatibility features like that. Is there any plans to add something like that in this update?
