What happens if you get bored of playing Minecraft? Modding is the answer! From cookies to rockets, mods alter anything and everything in the Minecraft game, but wouldn’t it be fun to create your own mod?

By following these simple steps, you can get started on your own path to creating custom Minecraft mods.

Minecraft - Mod - Maker - Ever - MCreator

Advertised as “The Best Minecraft Mod Maker Ever,” MCreator is a free tool for making your own Minecraft mods. You don’t have to write any code—although you can if you’d prefer to.

Get started by visiting the MCreator download page and downloading a version to match your current version of Minecraft.

This may take some time depending on your computer and internet speed, but once it’s completed for the first time, it won’t need to do it again.

MCreator - Pylo - Account - Press - Skip

Once configured, MCreator will ask if you’d like to sign in with your Pylo account. Go ahead and press Skip if you don’t have one.

Everything is now ready to go. The screen you see is the main menu for MCreator. You can import or export current settings, install mods developed by other people, or start writing your own mods.
