####Set Up Java The Java JDK is used to compile this project.

  1. Download and install the Java JDK.
    • Windows/Mac download link. Scroll down, accept the Oracle Binary Code License Agreement for Java SE, and download it (if you have a 64-bit OS, please download the 64-bit version).
    • Linux: Installation methods for certain popular flavors of Linux are listed below. If your distribution is not listed, follow the instructions specific to your package manager or install it manually here.
      • Gentoo: emerge dev-java/oracle-jdk-bin
      • Archlinux: pacman -S jdk7-openjdk
      • Ubuntu/Debian: apt-get install openjdk-7-jdk
      • Fedora: yum install java-1.7.0-openjdk
  2. Windows: Set environment variables for the JDK.
    • Go to Control Panel\System and Security\System, and click on Advanced System Settings on the left-hand side.
    • Click on Environment Variables.
    • Under System Variables, click New.
    • For Variable Name, input JAVA_HOME.
    • For Variable Value, input something similar to C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_51 EXACTLY AS SHOWN (or wherever your Java JDK installation is), and click Ok.
    • Scroll down to a variable named Path, and double-click on it.
    • Append ;%JAVA_HOME%\bin EXACTLY AS SHOWN and click Ok. Make sure the location is correct; double-check just to make sure.
  3. Open up your command line and run javac. If it spews out a bunch of possible options and the usage, then you're good to go.

  1. Download and install Git here.
    • Optional: Download and install a Git GUI client, such as SourceTree, Github for Windows/Mac, TortoiseGit, etc. A nice list is available here.

####Set Up This Project This section assumes that you're using the command-line version of Git.

####Compile This Project

  1. Execute gradlew build. If you did everything right, BUILD SUCCESSFUL will be displayed after it finishes.
    • If you see BUILD FAILED, check the error output (it should be right around BUILD FAILED), fix everything (if possible), and try again.
  2. Navigate to mcdev\ExtrabiomesXL\build\libs.
    • You should see a .jar file named [A.A.AA]ExtrabiomesXL-B.B.jar, where A.A.AA is the minecraft_version value in and B.B is the mod_version value in This is the mod file to be used with Minecraft.
    • Additionally, you should see two more .jar files named [A.A.AA]ExtrabiomesXL-deobf-B.B.jar and [A.A.AA]ExtrabiomesXL-deobf-B.B-src.jar. These are, respectively, the development modfile and the source code. The development mod file can be used when testing mods that are under development.
  3. Copy the first jar into your Minecraft mods folder, and you are done!

####Update Your Repository In order to get the most up-to-date builds, you'll have to periodically update your local repository and recompile this project.

  1. Open up your command line.
  2. Navigate to mcdev/ExtrabiomesXL in the console.
  3. Make sure you have not made any changes to the local repository, or else there might be issues with Git.
    • If you have, try reverting them to the status that they were when you last updated your repository.
  4. Execute git pull master. This pulls all commits from the official repository that do not yet exist on your local repository and updates it.
