BukkitForge Save

The world's first __opensource__ coremod. Also a port of the Bukkit server API to MinecraftForge.

Project README

BukkitForge - a Minecraft mod that ports the Bukkit plugin API to minecraft.

This is very WIP. Since i started doing this, i was mostly aiming for a server that didn't crash. It can load plugins, commands work, lots of things work, permissions should work, etc.

Most of this mod is a fairly straight port from Craftbukkit, but I've had to modify parts (and i anticipate modifiying more).

This is ported to 1.5.2.

See a list of working plugins here.

  7. Then run the install.cmd/install.sh in forge.

  17. You should have no errors at this time.

COMPILING (to get all that good stuff)

You need Apache Ant and the JDK. To build, run 'git submodule init' and 'git submodule update' in the root folder. cd back up one level and simply type 'ant' in the folder with build.xml inside it.


This is a core mod, and the jar should live in the 'coremods' directory of your server. If you put it uinder 'mods' it will try and fail to load, with an uninformative message.


If your mod does NOT use guava, you're fine, it should work.

If your mod DOES use guava, you need to add 'guava10' before all of your guava imports. The reason this is required is FML uses guava 12 which is not compatible with guava 10. So BukkitForge ships with guava 10 in 'guava10.com.google.xxx' rather than 'com.google.xxx'.
