Minecraft Modding 11

Goal: Minecraft is a multiplayer game about placing blocks in a 3-D environment, includes modifications (known as “mods”) written in Java that can alter the game. The attendees learn how to create a variety of Minecraft mods using Forge and Bukkit. The workshop will also talk about hosting Bukkit servers.

With Forge, the following mods are typically created:

  • Bigger TNT explosions
  • Zombie drop diamonds
  • Change say, hurt, and death sounds of different entities
  • Snow golems make ice
  • New smelting recipe
  • Furnace cooking faster
  • New crafting recipe
  • Making pigs fly

Depending upon the time, we may do show-and-tell.
