About This Course

When players open your Minecraft mod, they should face an exciting new challenge. Why not bring to life your own seemingly-undefeatable creature, whether it’s a monsterous skeleton or a fluffy-but-evil bunny? Give players a fighting chance by developing a new weapon so they can try to take it down! Whether you’re forging a special sword or providing a carrot on a stick, you’ll take your modding knowledge to the next level while learning about creating custom entities and projectiles. Then, of course, you’ll get to design and build an arena for your creature to battle in. 

Tools: Java, IntelliJ, Minecraft Java Edition
