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- Back up your workspace before updating to a newer version of the plugin.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.

Fabric Generator 1.5.2 - 1.16.5296.2 KB 296.2 KB


In v.1.0.2, checking the "Does item stay in crafting grid when when crafted?" checkbox does not actually keep the items in the crafting grid. Can we please get a fix on this? Thanks!

i just have one question and that is: how do i use the plugin?

The plugin never and will never support it. Minecraft and Fabric have a newer version which is called "1.16.5". I have no reason to make a version for an older 1.16.x version (and all other older versions too).


When version 1.17 was released,
How do we change the 1.165 version module that we made to version 1.17?

I don’t mean to get the new content of version 1.17 in mcreator,
I just want to change the mod version.

living entity does not show up on add element is this normal?

how do i install snapshot?
Because it wont let me do it the same way

Is there any chance for the 1.17 generator soon after the official release ?

"I tried to update the generator to Minecraft 1.17, but without the support of Java 16 by MCreator I won't be able to update the plugin for Minecraft 1.17."
As in descripiton, when MCreator will support Java 16. I guess it means at earliest while second snapshot for 2021.2 is released. I think even Klemen doesn't know when it will be released, developing software isn't something you can plan easily.
Please read description, answering for something already written is frustrating. Don't force developers for doing unnecessary things on which you can get answer already.
