Developer Mode (Beta)

The developer mode aims to help the creation of add-ons, giving some useful data for the creators, for the moment you can only find the identifier of the entities and blocks and the current value of the following components:

variant, skin_id, mark_variant.

To see the values you should activate the developer mode with the waio!configuration command.

You can leave suggestions on the discord server or in the comments section what you would like to see in this mode!

When you type it, the following interface will appear, where you can choose what you want, to save the changes you must click on the submit button.

Personalized Name to Your Add-on

The add-on uses .lang files to place the add-on names for a more personalized experience, so if you don't follow these guidelines, your block and entity names may look like this: waio.identifier:description.name

To avoid that, in a lang file (preferably in en_US.lang), you must define the name of your add-on, placing its name like this: waio.IDENTIFIER OF YOUR ADD-ON:description.name

It shouldn't be in my addon file, it should be in yours!


How to Set Custom Addon Name

That way, the name of your add-on will be displayed correctly!

Custom Addon Name Example


For the add-on to work properly you must activate the following experimental options offered by Minecraft.
