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- Back up your workspace before updating to a newer version of the plugin.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


I can't generate a workspace. It says the build failed.

I tried making a food item that uses the “when food eaten” trigger. Unfortunately, whenever I tried to put a procedure into the trigger, the food element would fail to compile. The procedure itself was compiling properly, and didn’t have any warnings or errors.
I looked on this page, but the only missing trigger mentioned was “on entity swing”. Is there something I am missing, or does the generator simply not support the “when food eaten” trigger?

I can't use it.
Appear to be locked.


I Can't Get It to work even after deleting the gradel cache folder please can you describe how you fixed it with more detail

So, I see you're waiting on MCreator to upgrade to java 16... Have you messaged them about that? I know that Forge hasn't updated yet, but updating the java version seems like it should be easy enough, and will be required eventually anyway. Maybe open a github issue and link it here, or something? :/

I'm already a major MCreator['s contributor and have already been in contact for several months (over 1 year and a half at least) with Klemen and Matej. Updating to a newer Java version is not always as easy as we can think because several things can change or can be improved with new features. About updating from J11 to J16, Klemen told us (contributors), he won't change the Java version before MCreator 2021.3 because Forge 1.15.2 doesn't support this Java version. In addition, he wanted to have Forge 1.16.5 at least and it's only a few days ago, Forge released a new RB supporting Forge Gradle 5 (so Java 16). Klemen already started to work on the update for J16, but he still needs to finish a few things and fix potential problems. The PR won't be merged before the 2021.3, so I don't think I will work on new features for the 1.16.5 version as it will require me to spend more time on updating to Fabric 1.17.1 (new names and systems as usual).

Oh, so 2021.3 will drop 1.15.2, do I understand correctly? :<
Also, there is no chance for any new GUI feature for it, such as customised button, since it was you working on GUI features, iirc? (sorry for asking about that here, but if I should stop hoping, I'd want to do it as early as possible)

Such a shame :< of course I will try to add that via code someday, but implementing that would save quite a lot of time (and I see it is kinda requested feature too), since I just started learning basic Java and it will take a while before I will be able to contribute to MCreator/code that myself. And custom buttons being MCreator feature would make it less buggy when changing generators back and forth, as I do to maintain all versions, I guess.
But I'm excited for 1.17.1 support anyway, so good luck with stuff you work on atm! Remember that we all appreciate your amazing work! ^^

is 3d armour supported? (if i already left this comment then sorry becus i cant seem to find my comment)
