Minecraft coding and modelling

Postby Darth_Squoobus » Wed Feb 16, 2011 7:53 pm

Now that we're getting into minecraft modding, does anyone know what programs can be used to make custom mobs for minecraft? Would XSI work, or do we need anything else?

Before anyone asks, I did use Google. All I found was a bunch of useless clutter.

You have to know java and have the java SDK on you pc to modify Minecraft. But for models, you dont use XSI, but im not sure what it uses.

Well evidently there are people who have made custom mobs for minecraft so there has to be some way.

This is fairly interesting as framework. I'm sure it could be applied to other mobs.

To create a model in minecraft, you need to know the proper Java code. Basically, you say "Draw a Rectangle that is This big! Put it here! draw another rectangle that is this big! put it there! when my model guy runs, move it to here! and when he does this, put it here!"
Over and over and over...
Modeling in Minecraft is nowhere near as easy as in Battlefront. Most people re-use the human model, and just add a new texture to it, which is way, way easier.

What I have used for modelling in minecraft is a modelling engine called Techne (If you look up 'techne minecraft' on google you should be able to find it.)
