Minecraft Modern Tools and Mods
Clients | Servers | Decompilers | Libraries | Utilities | Wrappers

This is a rather incomplete list of Minecraft clients that users have worked or are working on. This page only lists clients written from scratch; for mods and wrappers, see the Utility List and the Wrapper List.

The column Game Graphics asks if your client displays in-game activity at a graphical level, such as world chunks, people or mobs moving, or any of that sort. If you are simply displaying things as text, that does not count. You can also optionally tell us the library you're using for your game graphics while providing your answer.

If you want to add your client, just append it above all others (On the bottom are projects, that are inactive (sorted by date). All active clients are sorted after version. If your client does not support the latest version, it is below the others).
