''Minecraft'' Modern (officially ''Minecraft: Java Edition'') is one of the two updated versions of Minecraft which require a paid account to download, update and play. Most of the new development projects focus on either creating entirely new programs from scratch that interoperate with Minecraft (such as a bot or server) or modding projects that wrap the client or server and provide bug fixes, new features and enhancements to existing features.

=== Documentation ===
 +
There are ongoing efforts to keep reverse engineered documentation updated, but it isn't as easy as it sounds. The protocol generally changes slightly with each release, and both the Client and Server classes get rearranged on each release. Below are links to the current documentation segments, which '''may or may not be completely up to date'''.

Custom Minecraft development is non-trivial and is not something to cut your teeth on with respect to programming.  If you cannot answer the above question, you will likely not have a very fun time.  You will also upset other people if you ask questions that demonstrate a lack of prerequisite knowledge, especially related to general software development strategy or use of the language of your choice.

Likewise, the Minecraft protocol and official client/server are widely criticized in both design and implementation.   Dealing with these issues can be painful. Worst of all, if you don't have a solid development background you may unknowingly absorb these flaws into your own development strategy - both now and down the line on future projects.

Minecraft Classic is the original version of Minecraft, available for free to the public. It's still available off of the main website today and is still played by many people, with an active development community. As it's been around for almost a year, and because it's so simplistic, there are many, many programs made to work with Classic - there are over '''18+''' servers alone, written in everything from C++ to PureBasic to Perl. It's highly recommend if you're planning to do a development project at this point to instead look into the Minecraft Beta specifications.

Minecraft Modern (officially Minecraft: Java Edition) is one of the two updated versions of Minecraft which require a paid account to download, update and play. Most of the new development projects focus on either creating entirely new programs from scratch that interoperate with Minecraft (such as a bot or server) or modding projects that wrap the client or server and provide bug fixes, new features and enhancements to existing features.

Documentation

There are ongoing efforts to keep reverse engineered documentation updated, but it isn't as easy as it sounds. The protocol generally changes slightly with each release, and both the Client and Server classes get rearranged on each release. Below are links to the current documentation segments, which may or may not be completely up to date.

Tools & Mods

  • Clients - third-party Minecraft clients.
  • Servers - third-party Minecraft servers.
  • Libraries - libraries to interface with Minecraft data files or network protocols.
  • Utilities - tools that interface with a client, server, or data files, such as proxies, bots, or inventory editors.
  • Wrappers - mods that override features in the client or server
  • Generators - tools that extract data from mojang to a readable format
  • Cheats - mods that allow you to cheat (bannable on servers)
  • Burger - a tool that generates information for arbitrary Minecraft versions
  • Pokechu22's fork - where new version development is mostly done
  • Burger Vitrine - shows differences in data and protocol between arbitrary versions
