    Hello , I hope this is the right place to be posting this, as I am completely new to this. Naturally, I had the brilliant idea to make a Minecraft mod(? plugin?) for a school project.

    So. What I had in mind was a plugin that would make Villagers retaliate when a player's social standing gets low enough (I was thinking -5). Basically, I want to override their AI with the bits from an Iron Golem that allows it to do that. In theory it seems pretty simple and I've seen tutorials such as this one by Jacek, but something these tutorials don't really cover is like basic background stuff.

    I've taken an intro Java class, but like I said I've never made a plugin before, so I guess what I'm asking is if anyone could instruct me on how to get set up? I've set up JDK, JRE, Forge, Eclipse, and Maven. I've got a work space set up in Eclipse and, following Loremaster's tutorial, I have a sort of blank template that runs but does nothing.

    Where do I go from here? I've tried implementing the code from Jacek's tutorial but I seem to be missing something because I get the message that entities can't be resolved as a type, etc. So is there a resource pack I'm missing? Am I just not organizing my packages correctly? Any help would be really appreciated, thanks!

    @octosquid First things first:
    Mods are client side, generally using Forge.
    Plugins are server side using Bukkit.
    You don't need Forge for this.
    Do you have Java experience?

    Just class projects and that sort of thing, no "practical" applications like this

    @octosquid This would probably require NMS, not something that you want to start with.

    Alright, I do have an easier backup project in place, but if I were to get into NMS could you recommend somewhere to start?

    @octosquid NMS is not a place to start.
    It is a place to end.
