Reporting bugs

Please follow these rules when reporting bugs:

  • Update to the latest build from Jenkins before reporting a bug.

  • Always attach your ForgeEssentials/modlist.txt file
  • Always attach logs to your reports if you encountered crashes.
    If the client crashed, please also attach the client log if possible.
  • Each file must be clearly marked and only one url for file.
  • For feature requests, we recommend asking about it on Discord first

Any issue that does not follow the above rules will be closed!!!

Development Setup

If you are a modder and are interested in making a mod that extends the capabilities of Forge Essentials, or are looking to have increased levels of compatibility with Forge Essentials in your mod, please refer to the developer documentation.

We welcome all pull requests from anyone interested in contributing to the mod.

However, we do have a few rules to keep things organized:

  • Before making any pull request make sure to talk to the team first on discord.
    • This is doubly important for large fixes that change internals or feature additions
  • For Bug Fixes, a github issue must be created first that can be referenced in the PR itself
  • Only 1 PR per Bug Fix unless otherwise approved by the team.
