Issue description

For full advanced mod creation there are many things that Mcreator needs to be able to achieve certain things;
But that's all in the future and honestly it's developers can only do so much considering the Scale of what the program has become compared to it's Development rate.
So here is a simple list of things i think Should be added to Mcreator in the next or a future update,
These are fully within capability and i think they would drastically increase Mcreator's functionality in certain areas.


These are in no particular order.

  • Add the Ability to gain String, Boolean or Number based data from Anything as such in the clients F3 menu and use them in a procedure script, Use a set of simple blocks with Drop Down options for what data is being collected > save Block Menu space.
  • Add the Ability to create and format your own Mod Config Json in the Workspace Settings That would be created within the Client's Config Folder as normal, with a simple Creation menu and Potentially a simple Text Based markup language editor for it as of it being a form of Json already and it's already going into semi advanced forms of Mod Creation > higher experience users would enjoy this. *Supply some kind of simple tutorial along side.
  • *goes along side previous entry*  Add the ability to gain String, Boolean or Number based data from Any entry in the Mod Config Json as mentioned before, Use a set of simple blocks with Drop Down options for what data is being collected > save Block Menu space etc.
  • Add a new Element Creation Option for GameRule entries so ingame user's that have Operator Privileges can Reconfig values Ingame using the GameRule commands and a Custom Modded GameRule entry - Also Add the ability to gain String, Boolean or Number based data from Any GameRule entry can be used, this also applies to pre-existing Minecraft GameRule entries and or Modded Entries from other mods added as a dependency.

 


This is a rough list of simple statistical information blocks that i think would improve Mcreator's capabilities tenfold.
I have many more suggestions - requests as you would expect; but i shall summarize it and suggest those in another ticket some time in the future.


PS - Please apply these to your 1.12.2 Build also.

Most of these can be obtained using specific procedure block, eg. biome, dimension ID, coordinates, ... If there are specific ones needed, please open a ticket for this specific one, this right now is a bit too broad request, each ticket should be own self-contained request.

Add the Ability to create and format your own Mod Config Json in the Workspace Settings That would be created within the Client's Config Folder as normal, with a simple Creation menu and Potentially a simple Text Based markup language editor for it as of it being a form of Json already and it's already going into semi advanced forms of Mod Creation > higher experience users would enjoy this. *Supply some kind of simple tutorial along side.

I believe you meant this? https://mcreator.net/tracker/issue/53297 As above, this is own request for own ticket ;)

Add a new Element Creation Option for GameRule entries so ingame user's that have Operator Privileges can Reconfig values Ingame using the GameRule commands and a Custom Modded GameRule entry - Also Add the ability to gain String, Boolean or Number based data from Any GameRule entry can be used, this also applies to pre-existing Minecraft GameRule entries and or Modded Entries from other mods added as a dependency.

Nice idea, but a bit too complex for MCreator at this point at time, but I will note it for later down the road.

PS: Check your other ticket, I replied there and would need some feedback.
