About the plugin

Configuration FIles is a plugin that allows for the creation of mod configuration files, through which parts of your mod can be enabled, disabled or modified using variable values stored inside it. Those values can then be changed by the mod's users, allowing for more control over your mod's features.

 

How to use?

 

Configurations are very simple to use. You will first need to create a configuration element.

config

Once created, you can make a configuration category and add variable types to it. Note that registry name types are considered texts. (and entities are not supported yet, but you can manually write the registry name as a text variable)

variables

You can then use the variables in procedures by following the example below.

example

 

And that's it! The Configuration Files will generate once the game is loaded.

 

The plugin supports versions 1.16.5-1.19.2, but doesn't support 2022.2. Therefore you will need to install the forge generator 1.16.5 plugin for 2022.3 if you plan on using this with 1.16.5

 

This is a Java Plugin and therefore requires the Java Plugins feature to be enabled.

Comments

Would it be possible for you to add something along the lines of "set configuration variable" blocks? I'm aware it may be complex but would make this plugin infinitely more useful, more than it already is.

Is it possible to get access to the old 1.16.5 templates before deletion? As the 1.16.5 generator was ported to 2023.1 not too long ago.

I know what you mean but it does work for what I need it to do so was just wondering if you had like some of the latest files right before deletion you know as manually trying to add them back just resulted in it being unable to generate config files on it's own but still being able to read them.

The version 1.8 does not have support for 2023.1, it doesn't show as loaded. Use 1.7 instead, that one works

OH MY GOD I WAS LOOKING FOR SOMETHING LIKE THIS 8 MONTHS AGO IM SO HAPPY!

Plugin works but no mod element were provided in MCR 2023.4

Hey Nerdy! Is there a chance you could upload the source code on to GitHub or similar? I have some mods that heavily depend on this plugin and I was hopping of porting it myself. Cheers :D
