Custom Market Entries

Data packs are now used to configure the market. You can place JSON files inside a farmingforblockheads_compat folder (so the resulting path would be data/<namespace>/farmingforblockheads_compat/{files}.json) within a datapack which will be loaded. For simple scenarios, you can also use the MarketRegistry.json file under config/farmingforblockheads/MarketRegistry.json.

See here for an example:

Java API

If the IMC API is not enough for you, you can build against Farming for Blockheads' Java API. The Java API allows everything the IMC API does, and certain tasks can only be achieved via the Java API. However, if you don't need that extra control, it is recommended to use the IMC API.

Adding the dependency to your build.gradle

repositories {
    maven {
        url ""

dependencies {
    compile "farming-for-blockheads:FarmingForBlockheads_1.12.2:3.1.26"
