I wrote an article recently about my initial attempts to data drive Minecraft. Since then I’ve made a lot of progress with the system. I can create block items, spawn eggs, armor, tools, and food. I’ve added a spell system and can now attach spells to items.
One thing that’s been bugging me about modding for Minecraft is how much code you need to define data. I decided to see if it’s possible to data drive item creation with Forge.
