making minecraft mods

If I were interested in making a mod for minecraft, what are the modern choices?  Is Forge Mod Loader still the goto mod framework?

Just looking for something to do in my spare time, and I don't really know where's the best place to start.

I should say, I'm looking at client mods.  For instance, I'd like coords on my screen, and a compass, without having the F3 screen open.

Forge and the deep tool changes for the current versions are still stuck in a complete rewrite mode because of massive changes in the core minecraft code base. Be warned there are A LOT OF FAKE forge downloads because of this that claim to be current


However, Java edition has data packs and resource packs that can do a lot of general mod like things. Also Data packs are officially supported and are less likely to break between minor releases.

Hmm, data packs don't let you render things on the screen, at least not something like coordinates or a facing direction.

MinecraftForge seems to have releases all the way to 1.14.4, but 1.12.2 is still the "recommended" download: https://files.minecraftforge.net/maven/net/minecraftforge/forge/index_1.14.4.html.  And from what I've read from LexManos elsewhere, the 1.13 rewrite / major upgrade seems to have been completed.  So maybe I will be able to get this running.

I think the issue is that it is incomplete.

I was going by https://www.minecraftforge.net/forum/forum/7-releases/

But go off the official sources on that site and you should be fine.

I think there is a mod that already does this, Vinny from Vinesauce uses something like what you are talking about to get around. I'll have to see if I can find out what it's called.

Yeah, but, I want to learn how to do it myself.  That's part of the journey :)

Craving the descent into madness eh? :D From what I hear Minecraft is a bit of a nonsensical mess layered on top of a maddening jumble of bad ideas cobbled together to make a game... but you're familiar with that kinda thing already so fair game haha

Let us know about your journey!

I gather that they've been cleaning things up as they go. The java version has seen so many reworks when big big releases are done. I bet its a lot cleaner now than it was.

I remember looking at earlier recompiled source and my lord. everything hard coded.
