CraftMod is currently in VERY early development, currently you cannot save your modding progress, you can only create items (tools, swords, etc) however you can export your mod so in essence it does work perfectly fine. It will be very buggy, so don’t expect it to work perfectly.
CraftMod is a new mod making utility tool in develop by me, Tommo. It will be a simple program for end-users to create mods with little to no work at all. I will be working on this over quite a long period of time as this is a big project of mine. I aim to add very extensive modding capabilities to this tool, it will not be a simple tool where you select a name for your new sword and it will be done, however it will support method overriding components, custom item materials, custom block rendering components, and many more. I will most likely be releasing the code as open source once this project is finished.

- Id: The id of the item, use any number bigger than the last item on this list: http://bit.ly/upDLJL
- Sprite path: The path to the sprite of the item. “/modname/texture.png” would mean the image “texture.png” in the subfolder “modname”.
- Material: The material properties the item will have.
Exporting your mod:
Once finished with your mod, clicking file > export will export your mod into the folder where you opened CraftMod.jar from.
Using your mod:
TO USE THIS MOD YOU HAVE TO HAVE SETUP MCP, WATCH THIS:
Then go back into your mcp folder and then click build.bat, your mod will then compile, you can test your mod by opening startclient.bat (DON’T FORGET TO PUT YOUR TEXTURE FILES INTO “jars\bin\minecraft.jar”).
Once you have tested your mod and if it’s working alright, click reobf.bat and then your mod files will be in the reobf folder. These mod files are then ready to be uploaded or to be put into your minecraft.jar along wirh your textures.
