''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.

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'''.

Minecraft Modern

Banner beta.png

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
  • PAaaS - shows differences in protocol and sounds for newer versions (1.8 and above)
