MCreator Max Mod Elements

Issue description

Hello Klemen,

I know your busy and do not want to bug you with possible bugs, but felt this one was a bit warranted!

So My mod is basically very large as it has become 2 in one and I will be splitting it apart to manage it better and resolve the following issue. However, before I did that I came across this a Gradle Error which I posted below. I have noted that this error occurs when I hit 1395 Mod Elements, if I delete one element the Gradle can preform as required.

Now I can provide you with a copy of the file if you like but am uncertain you would need it to recreate the bug, but if you do tell me where to send it as I would rather not share my file with everyone.

Also due to the fact that I have come across this issue, I had a few questions that might be considered ideas for future releases.

1. is there a way to delete multiple elements from the work-space at once as to speed the process of separating the mod?

2. Is it possible to make multiple Mods dependent of one another, example Mod1 has elements that Mod2 would need in order to function?

Thank you for all you time and effort

Issue comments

This is a very critical bug. I am not sure how we will fix this yet, but it would help me a lot if you could share your workspace file with me. You can send it to support (at) so we can use it for testing. Thanks!

Regarding a way to delete multiple elements at once, we will consider implementing this too.

I have fixed this bug. New mod element limit is 65535 mod elements which is the number of elements where this will be the last issue to worry about. The fix will be released in MCreator 1.8.1.

Keep in mind that this change affects the format of mod elements, so mod elements with code locked will have to be manually updated to extend ModElement class like this:

public class mcreator_customModElement extends testenvironmentmod.ModElement {


so any element code we locked, will have to have this snippet of code (public class mcreator_customModElement extends testenvironmentmod.ModElement {) put into the element manually. 

Is this CORREECT?  if so is there a specific area the code need to be placed or will it be at the end of element code?

No, this was just example. If you had this line before:

public class mcreator_customModElement {

you will have to change it to

public class mcreator_customModElement extends testenvironmentmod.ModElement {

But keep in mind this won't work in 1.8.0, this will be the change in 1.8.1.

As far as locking goes, in case of your workspace, you have a lot of unnecessary code locks. You should only lock code if you have a very good reason for this because if you lock code, the mod won't be able to update, fix all the bugs that are fixed in updates and upgrade to new versions of Minecraft.

okay, so I have unlocked all elements and when I update to 1.8.1 I will need to check every element, if it has the following line of code

public class mcreator_customModElement {

I will need to change that old code to the following new one.

public class mcreator_customModElement extends testenvironmentmod.ModElement {

Thank you

No, there is no limit in recent versions.

In reallity, there is a theoretical limit of 2147483647 and a bit smaller true limit due to Java limitations.
