Unnamed topic[edit]

Is there a mod to make your computer minecraft run on a controller like the xbox version? mabie even menus to match the 360 version? I love the xbox version, but I cant mod it, and it is not as far updated on your computer.

Answer: There are plenty of programs that will translate input from a controller into mouse and keyboard commands. Look into XPadder.

Outdated:[edit]

A couple of these modpacks are waaaayyyy outdated. I don't want to just edit them out though without some confirmation about whether or not there is newer versions which would justify them staying on the page. What do you guys think? –Preceding unsigned comment was added by 67.164.11.220 (Talk) 02:21, 19 November 2012 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Everything that hasn't been released for 1.3 or later has now been moved to the outdated page. -- Orthotope 10:07, 27 November 2012 (UTC)

Server "Plugins"[edit]

If a server has "Plugins," and the user doesn't, will the user still be able to use the server? Creepergoboom64 22:49, 11 December 2012 (UTC)Creepergoboom64

In general, yes, though you may not be able to use some plugin features without a related client mod installed. -- Orthotope 03:37, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

Picture of Aether Mod[edit]

In all honesty, I don't believe the picture of the Aether should be there - the first image you see when you open the mods page. A few reasons:

  • The Aether Mod is outdated (last update was 1.2.5)
  • It is free publicity - people who visit the page may be inclined to download the mod
  • Unfair on other mods and inconsistency - since we list one mod there, why not put pictures of them all there?

What do other people think? If I get no responses I might as well remove it. Goandgoo. Talk - Contribs 07:49, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

I agree (despite me being the person who originally put it there). I originally changed the image from File:Indev World Generator.png to the current one because I felt it better suited the article being a popular content mod which a lot people are familiar with. After hearing your reasons however, I agree. -- Hower64 08:12, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

A problem with page loading[edit]

The list of mods won't load. Why is that?

205.250.250.212 01:51, 4 January 2013 (UTC)

The "Load content" links work fine for me. I think you need Javascript enabled in your browser for those to work. --User:Kanegasi User_talk:KanegasiSpecial:Contributions/Kanegasi 01:58, 4 January 2013 (UTC)
I'm using an iPad. Could that be the reason?

Mod for bedrock pickaxe[edit]

I watched the video about bedrock pickaxe mod and the crafting is:

Ingredients
Bedrock [1], Sticks

  1. Only used with the /give command.

Mindofthelion I think that would be pretty cool to get that without mods... --Mindofthelion (talk) 02:14, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

Would it be possible to sort by "Latest Release"[edit]

I wish there was a way to sort by "Latest Release". --Dude17172009 21:25, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

That would be nice, but it doesn't work properly when I tested it. The last part of the version number seems to be ignored, so 1.5 and 1.5.1 are all mixed together, as are all the 1.4.* versions. -- Orthotope 08:20, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

06/01/2013: What happened to the mod list? *SOLVED*[edit]

Just was wandering around Minecraft Wiki and found that the Mods list was empty. Any idea of what happened?

--177.16.192.211 17:21, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

It's still there; the content has been split onto several subpages due to how long the article was getting. You can view it by clicking the [load] links next to the section titles. -- Orthotope talk 17:34, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

Table Format Update[edit]

I feel like the tables containing the different mods might be easier to look through if they could filter the mods that are shown by a certain criterea that the player gave, like latest release, SMP compatability, etc. With a feature like that, the Mods page could be much more encompassing while still being easy to navigate, and if my assumption that this website uses MediaWiki framework, it's not beyond the realm of possibility. I have seen wikis with sortable tables that you can easily add values to. It would be a nice project to consider --204.193.7.11 12:28, 3 September 2013 (UTC)-- Guest Oswald

How do you create mods?[edit]

I want to create a easy peaceful mod but don't know how to get started. Do you use one of the first three options on Minecraft Forge? There is a page but I don't understand it.--GamerGalGirl (talk) 16:45, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

If you don't understand the page on creating mods then you should try learning some Java. 19px Lennbot 19px (talk - contributions) 17:13, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

Forge compatibility with newer versions[edit]

The current version of Minecraft Forge is for 1.7.2. Does this mean it (and all mods dependent on it) will not work with newer versions? 80.61.187.95 19:41, 9 March 2014 (UTC)

The Forge server "wraps" the default Minecraft server. It's a front-end where mods connect to Forge and then Forge connects to the vanilla server. So you must have a version of Forge that is compatible with the version of Minecraft that you wish to run. To answer your question - you are correct, a v1.7.2 Forge will not work with v1.7.10 Minecraft, so you will not see any bug fixes or enhancements that are beyond the forge release. That said, most people are more interested in their mods than the version of MC, so they'll just use whatever is the latest version of Forge and sacrifice whatever fixes or enhancements they're missing. Forge now supports v1.7.10 and mods that have been updated should work with it. --KodeMonger (talk) 16:36, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

link to mod list[edit]

I for one used that mod list often until about 3 months ago and it's not there trying to find it again today! ...but there have several different people editing this page since it was removed two months ago, so I'll grudgingly accept it. There really should have been a discussion here though, or at least a post with a reason why.

However, I did change the link to the modlist on the Minecraft forum to point to the correct Minecraft forum (the one supported by Curse, same as this wiki.) It's currently pointing to the Mods forum over there, not a specific list. There is a topic for a 1.7.2 mod list, but I didn't want to be that specific. If someone wants to compile and maintain a nice list ON THE OFFICIAL FORUM that would be great. 76.115.223.159 00:28, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

What mod is this?[edit]

Hi.

I've seen some Gameplays where people just had to type the beginning of a name in the online chat and it automatically filled out the rest of the name by itself. (Mitch has it for example) –Preceding unsigned comment was added by 194.166.167.205 (talk) at 15:43, 15 June 2014 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Proposal to update MC Port Central notes[edit]

MC Port Central was commonly called MCPC, then MCPC+. That project has now been renamed Cauldron which supports the latest Forge/MC core version 1.7.10. Unless someone here objects, in a week or so I'll update the info on this. --KodeMonger (talk) 16:42, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

Move page to "Mod"?[edit]

According to the Style Guide, article names should be singular. This article's title is plural. I would move this to "Mod" myself, but because of the immense number of subpages (more then the move tool's cap of 100 subpages to auto-move when moving the parent page), I don't know the proper way to handle the subpages. Can someone either move this for me (if they support moving it), or (also if they support moving it) explain how I would handle the over 100 subpages? –Preceding unsigned comment was added by Valiec2019 (talkcontribs) at 00:16, 20 August 2014 (UTC).

Generator-Mod?[edit]

I have a question ,what is the generator mod on the first picture?--77.176.10.204 09:50, 27 September 2014 (UTC)

Extremely Outdated Mods[edit]

It seems that a lot of the mods listed in the Mods Category are very outdated (for example CamelOre is still in Beta 1.6.6). Also I don't know if people are actually updating these pages anymore, meaning that some mods that have updated to 1.6/1.7 haven't been updated for quite a while on this wiki. Many of these pages also seem very disorganized.

Many of the better known mods already have their own wikis; and besides I have yet to hear someone on the MC Forums refer to this wiki for mod information.

So the question is: should we still include pages on specific mods? Sonicwave (talk) 09:28, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

I personally do not find the mod pages very useful, as very few people actually work on the pages, and most mods should be documented on their download site anyways, otherwise who would download them? The main reason we have them might have come from the earlier days of Minecraft Wiki when there were fewer mods, and the most popular mods got documented here. We also declare at the beginning of the pages that we do not support the mods, yet we host information about them...
Largely out of date mods and mods that have had little backing on the wiki I believe should be removed. Really linking to the website, forum thread, or even mod's wiki would be better, as those would all be updated more. KnightMiner (t|c) 01:00, 13 November 2014 (UTC)
