Now, in just 24 lessons of one hour or less, you can learn all the mod development skills you'll need, even if you've never programmed before. Each short, easy lesson builds on all that's come before, as you learn through a complete, book-length project: creating a complex mod including a mob users will have to fight with unique new tools and armor. Sams Teach Yourself Minecraft Mod Development in 24 Hours covers all this, and much more:

  • Setting up the environment where you'll write your mod

  • Building the components that make up Minecraft

  • Crafting your own tools and armor
  • Making custom blocks and textures
  • Generating entire worlds, including ores, plants, and MCEdit structures
  • Creating Entity Models with Techne
  • Making Throwables
  • Editing Minecraft indirectly
  • Using Tile Entities to create complex and unique mods
  • Structuring, packaging, and releasing your mod

Step-by-step instructions walk you through common questions, issues, and tasks; Q-and-As, Quizzes, and Exercises build and test your knowledge; "Did You Know?" tips offer insider advice and shortcuts; and "Watch Out!" alerts help you avoid problems. All code will be available online, and the author intends to provide continuous updates for new Minecraft releases.
