If you’re a fan of Minecraft, you may be interested in making mods (modifications) to the game. Mods are made by the community and can add new features or change existing gameplay.

Making a mod can be a daunting task, but with a few simple steps you can create your own mod in no time. In this guide, we’ll show you how to make a mod for Minecraft Education Edition.

The first thing you’ll need to do is download theMinecraft Education Edition Modding Toolkit. This toolkit will allow you to create and edit your mods.

Once you have the toolkit, you’ll need to create a new folder for your mod. To do this, open the toolkit and click on the “Mods” tab. Then, click on the “Create New Folder” button. Give your folder a name and click “OK”.

Now that you have a folder for your mod, it’s time to start adding files to it. The first file you’ll need to add is the manifest file. This file tells Minecraft what your mod does and how it should be loaded.

To create the manifest file, open the toolkit and click on the “Manifest” tab. Then, click on the “Create Manifest” button. In the manifest editor, enter the following information:

Name: This is the name of your mod. For example, “My Awesome Mod”.

Version: This is the version number of your mod. For example, “1.0”. Minecraft will automatically increment this number when you release new versions of your mod.

Description: This is a short description of what your mod does. For example, “Adds new blocks and items to Minecraft”.
Resources: This is where you’ll specify any external resources that your mod uses (more on this later). For now, we’ll just leave this blank.

After you’ve entered all of the required information, click “Save” and then close the manifest editor.—Gamekastenaking Azumarill in Create docs

What is a Mod?

In Minecraft, a “mod” is an addition or change to the game that can drastically change how the game is played. Mods can range from small changes like adding new crafting recipes to completely overhauling the game mechanics. In Minecraft: Education Edition, mods are created using code and can be added to worlds to change or enhance gameplay.

Creating a mod involves creating files and organizing them in a specific way. The file structure for a mod is similar to that of other Java projects, such as those used in Eclipse or IntelliJ IDEA. A typical mod will have a main class, which contains the code for the mod, as well as any other classes needed by the mod. In addition, a mod will also have a resources folder, which contains any textures or other files needed by the mod.

Once a mod is completed, it can be shared with others by packaging it into a ZIP file and sharing it online or through another method.Mods can also be published on CurseForge, which allows them to be found and installed by others through the CurseForge client.

How to Make a Mod

Mods are a great way to add new content to Minecraft: Education Edition. There are two types of mods: resource packs and behavior packs. Resource packs add new textures, sounds, and models to the game. Behavior packs allow you to modify how mobs behave. You can create your own mod or download one from the internet.

Step One: Choose Your Theme

Now that you’ve gotten familiar with the basics of Minecraft, it’s time to start thinking about what kind of mod you want to create. Do you want to add new animals? New blocks? A new dimension?

Whatever you choose, it’s important to keep your mod small and focused. Trying to add too many features at once will make your mod complicated and difficult to finish. It’s better to start small and gradually add more features as you get more comfortable with the modding process.

Once you’ve decided on a general theme for your mod, it’s time to start brainstorming specific features. Write down a list of everything you want to add, no matter how big or small. This will be your roadmap as you begin coding your mod.

Step Two: Choose Your Functionality

Now that you have chosen what your mod will do, it’s time to start coding! In this step, you will use the Blockly programming language to program the behavior of your mod. If you are new to Blockly, don’t worry! The tutorials below will walk you through all the basics.

To start programming your mod, first open Minecraft Education Edition and click “Create New” in the world selection screen. Then, click “Open Code Builder” in the world options menu. This will open the Code Builder interface.

Click on the “My Mods” tab and then click “+ New Mod”. Give your mod a name (e.g. “Super Jump Mod”) and then click “OK”. This will create a new file in your project with the default code for a mod.

Step Three: Choose Your Tools

Now that you have chosen your project, it is time to gather the resources you will need to complete it. If you are planning on adding new blocks, items, or mobs to the game, you will need an image editing program like Photoshop or GIMP. If you want to edit the game itself, such as the GUI or mechanics, you will need a code editor like Visual Studio Code or Eclipse. For both types of projects, you will also need a version of Minecraft: Education Edition that is compatible with the Tweeners modding API.


Now that you know the basics of how to make a mod in Minecraft Education Edition, you can explore the many possibilities for customizing your game. There are endless possibilities for creativity, so get started and have fun!
