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- Back up your workspace before updating to a newer version of the plugin.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


Klemen won't support J16 in the next update because 1.15.2 and surely 1.16.5 will not work. However, Klemen explained me I can download and use another JDK using Gradle. I already started to work on that, but as long as I don't make it work, I will not make other updates. Fabric 1.17 changed mappongs to official ones, so a lot of things have changed and more features = more work to update.

I would appreciate ranged item support so much... as long as Fabric generator don't support it, there's no possibility of me porting my mod to Fabric API, as it massively relies on ranged items ;-;

When will it support everything that forge supports? I need to have my mod available for Fabric too.

As I explained several times, I'm alone working on this plugin. In addition, I also need to update and maintain my other plugins and work on new features for MCreator, but I don't even have the time to update all plugins I would like to. I worked a lot recently on the Fabric generator to implement custom entities and block & plant generation. However, it took me about 45 hours to implement them. Working on a whole new generator of this size is a big job, even more, when you are alone. Updates would be quicker or bigger with some contributions, but sadly, I don't have contributors. I try to put more effort into this plugin/generator as I know a lot of users want multiple things, but I can't do more than what I'm doing currently. Implementing everything the Forge generators have will take time due to those reasons, but also since Forge is a modding API based on events, while Fabric is based on mixins and is still in a development phase. Most events can’t be implemented currently.

Thank you

We know you are busy updating Fabric Generator
I'm sorry that most people here can't help this.
Many users have no JAVA or technical expertise.
Even people with relevant knowledge may not be able to help such complex project development.

Please ignore everyone’s urging,
A small number of people don’t understand how difficult the development of Fabric Generator is.
But most people are willing to wait for the moment when Fabric Generator is completed.

Thank you very much to the Fabric Generator development team,
Has been helping us module creators who don’t understand programming languages,
Developed such a great Explore plugins

Thank you for your message! I really appreciate it. 💙 I know most users don't have an idea of how works Java or another programming language. It's the reason they use, I used, MCreator. When I started to develop this plugin, back in April 2020, I only wanted to make it to practice myself with custom generators. Originally, I didn't want to make a Fabric generator, but a Spigot generator. Today, I've much more fun developing this generator than my Spigot generator. File Manager and the Fabric generator are my two preferred plugins. I love developing them, even if I'm alone. I would love to work with a team helping me with my plugins or simply creating and developing the biggest MCreator plugins together, but until this day happens, I take comments of users happy with new updates as my reward.

As long as I will love making new features and plugins for MCreator, I will always have some motivation someday to make, I hope, new amazing updates. This plugin also helped me a lot, helping me to learn Java and being one of the biggest members of MCreator. From the beginning, it was a great adventure and I hope it will continue in the future.

uh I didn't wanna sound annoying so I read comments first to see if there was someone with the same problem and your reply said read description and I need a little help cuz ive tried everything :')
I downloaded the file, I installed it but it doesn't show up in the plugins tab, ive tried compressing the file, im on the right version of everything, I tried cloth commons that won't even show up idk I need help hah ive tried even switching versions and that doesn't work :(

Let's take it step by step

Click on the New workspace, is there an option for FABRIC?

Have you uninstalled MCreator and re-downloaded MCreator to reinstall?

Also ask about the computer operating system you are using.

Sorry to interrupt your development time

I want to ask about the license of MOD
(Sorry I am not very familiar with this)
I know that the license of Fabric Generator is "GNU Lesser General Public License, version 3.0"

If I want to release the mod made by Fabric Generator

What kinds of licenses can I use?

I think the license used by curseforge mod creators is "All Rights Reserved".

I cannot edit the content again.
Correct the last sentence:
I have seen many creators developed by Curseforge using Fabric Generator, and most of the used licenses are All Rights Reserved.

The license I selected and other statements I wrote allow you to use the license you want. You are not restricted to a specific one. If you see several people using an "All Rights Reserved" license, it simply means they don't want to have it open-source (so everything is their own work and nobody can do something with their code).
