In today’s episode we talk about the required and additional tools you will be using throughout your mod development, with an emphasis on the ones I use.
Do not feel like you HAVE to use all of the additional tools, nor should you feel like you have to use the applications I recommend. I am just recommending the ones I like to use and are most comfortable using 🙂
Remember all you ABSOLUTELY need in order to make mods for Minecraft is just Minecraft, the Java JDK, and the Minecraft Coders Pack.
Here are some links to some of the applications I discussed in this episode;
- Java JDK
- Minecraft Coders Pack
- Minecraft Forge (Forums) (Downloads) (Javadoc)
- Apache Ant
We’ll see you next time with part 2 of Helpful Tools and Setting Up Your Development Environment!
