This is a library mod for BetterEnd, BetterNether, Eden Ring and possible future mods from BetterX team. Should be installed as a separated mod. This library can be used by other developers to make their own mods.

Some features will appear in future. All documentation is in javadocs for now, but most important things will be moved into the wiki

 

Client (Standalone) Features:

  • Compatibility between Nether and End mods and datapacks biome generation
  • Emissive textures (with "_e" suffix) for solid and cutout blocks (+ resourcepack support);
  • Automatic emission shaders for Canvas (+ resourcepack support);

 

Modmakers Features:

Rendering

  • Emissive textures (with _e suffix)
    • Can be applied to Solid and Transparent blocks;
    • Can be changed/added with resourcepacks;

  • Procedural block and item models (from paterns or from code);
  • Block render interfaces.

API:

  • Simple Mod Integration API:
    • Get mod inner methods, classes and objects on runtime.
  • Structure Features API:
    • Sructure Features with automatical registration, Helpers and math stuff.
  • World Data API:
    • World fixers for comfortable migration between mod versions when content was removed;
    • Support for Block name changes and Tile Entities (WIP).
  • Bonemeal API:
    • Add custom spreadable blocks;
    • Add custom plants grow with weight, biomes and other checks;

    • Feature generation using SDF.

Helpers And Utils:

  • Custom surface builders.
  • Translation helper:
    • Generates translation template.
  • Weighted list:
    • A list of objects by weight;
  • Weighted Tree:
    • Fast approach for big weight structures;
  • Block helper:
