Important Information

- Back up your workspace before updating to a newer version of the plugin.
- Mods will also require Fabric API to function properly, so when you want to play your mod, make sure you have Fabric API.


To develop with Minecraft 1.17, we need to use Java 16, but currently, MCreator only supports Java 11. I tried to add an option to use a custom JDK, but it doesn't work as the internal JVM is only with Java 11. So, as long MCreator doesn't have a JDK 16, I can't work on a 1.17.1 version.


Thanks to all of you for helping in reporting bugs, testing or anything else.

The update looks cool but when I download the new version and click to load it in MCreator nothing happens. Any ideas?

nice plugin, when i was using fabric, it was literally cool :D

I've moved the plugin into my plugins' file and it does not show up, is there any fix to it?

Is there a way to port Forge workspace into Fabric, or converter of any kind?

And if not, I have one question for manual conversion. I know I can manually drag Fabric generation files into Forge workspace, but I don't know which ones are for generation. Could anyone tell me which ones are needed, and which files should stay as they represent mods' content?

There is no converter currently between the Forge and Fabric generators, but I think Klemen will make one when the generator will have more features. Concerning doing it manually, it is a bit complex and not really recommended if you want to keep your workspace without bugs or corruption.

Indeed, I was really afraid that doing that manually would be more of a mistake than something useful, considering me being noob in such cases - though remaking my whole mod would be even more painful, considering how much blocks I already added and I am planning to add :D I hope Klemen makes converter, because that would be just perfect. Thanks for the answer! ^^

i uploaded it to the mcreator plugins thingy and i restarted the app yet the 1.16.5 not showsing up

Whats the huge difference in mod making between Fabric and Forge on MCreator, because I see, when I click on the edit button on fabric, that a lot of stuff is still missing or not complete and I really want to use Fabric for my mod, cuz its better in my opinion.
But the missing features are kinda "scaring" me. What are like the most important things you cant do in mcreator fabric compared to forge?

I know its hard for only you two to make this, so im wishing you good luck and I hope you and your families stay/are healthy.
