Minecraft has a deep modding community, but most Minecraft players have no idea how to create mods on their own. Normally, modding requires at least some form of coding knowledge – usually Java – and that restricts many players from customizing Minecraft the way they want to.
Fortunately, you don’t have to be a computer genius to create mods in Minecraft anymore. Thanks to Mod Maker Basic, any average Minecraft player can become a modder with a number of simple, easy to use tools.
How does Mod Maker Basic work? Well, players have access to tools like a Recipe Maker, Item Customizer, Block Customizer, and many more features. Using these tools, it’s easy to create new things in the Minecraft world.
The big selling point of the mod is that there is no Java required. Since Java is the primary coding language used to create Minecraft mods, this is Mod Maker Basic’s most popular selling feature.
Mod Maker Basic is currently a work in progress, so it’s not a perfect tool just yet. However, players who want to express their creativity without spending hours learning a coding language can effectively use the mod to create all sorts of new textures and items.
You might not be able to make a total conversion mod with Mod Maker Basic, but you can certainly add some fun new features. Whether you want to add a certain weapon into the game or you want to try adding a range of new blocks, Mod Maker Basic has opened up the world of Minecraft modding to those who have no experience in creating mods. Try it today to see what you can create!
