You can teach me the commands to make the block jump off the ground, but not the one from the mod, but the one from Vanilla Minecraft??, pliss

i got it working, and i tried to make the beam do damage, the link u sent says it was last modified in 1970 and it doesnt do anything

i went into workspace settings >> External APIs, i don't understand what to do next? Any Help Would Be Appreciated :}

how to make a trail that is on your video on the plugin's website?

Hey sorry for the inconvenient question but how did you go about creating the quake visual effect in the first place?

I think you should add a radius modifier to the quake so custom radii can be used (i.e. making only 1 block shake or having an entire area shake)

hello im sorry but how do i install your api i cant find it anywhere and have no experience with instaling them

Once you import the plugin in mcreator -> restart mcrearor -> reopen your workspace -> click top right (workspace settings) -> in the new pop-up that appears click the tab External API and it should be there

If you want it outside of mcreator search for Mino's Particle Presets on CurseForge

why don't you make it work without installing your api bruh, I'm sure you can do that without installing any external api.

Maybe if I have a lot of free time in the future. I am not very good at java, so I stick with what I can do for now. Is there anything specifically you wanted, I could send you procedure or java files for them so that you wouldn't have to install the entire plugin?

Anyway, of making the Quake Effect do damage. Trying to make it so when right clicking upon a block allows for any enemy in the effect to take damage? any Idea on how that would work?
