About the mod

copy_paste is a mod for the famous game Minecraft from Mojang. This Mod allows the player to save structures with a scan tool, manipulate regions with functions as remove, replace and delete entities. As well as paste these structures in the world. Additionally this mod adds a bunch of decorative blocks as shingles, timberframes and paperwalls.


For Users

Compiling copy_paste

IMPORTANT: Please report any issues you have, there might be some problems with the documentation! Also make sure you know EXACTLY what you're doing! It's not any of our faults if your OS crashes, becomes corrupted, etc.

Setup Java

The Java JDK is used to compile copy_paste

  1. Download and install the Java JDK 8.
    • 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 jdk8-openjdk
      • Ubuntu/Debian: apt-get install openjdk-8-jdk
      • Fedora: yum install java-1.8.0-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\jdk1.8.0_45 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. If not, either try the steps again.

Setup Gradle (Optional)

Gradle is used to execute the various build tasks when compiling CopyPaste

  1. Download and install Gradle.
    • Windows/Mac download link. You only need the binaries, but choose whatever flavor you want.
      • Unzip the package and put it wherever you want, eg C:\Gradle.
    • 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/gradle-bin
      • Archlinux: You'll have to install it from the AUR.
      • Ubuntu/Debian: apt-get install gradle
      • Fedora: Install Gradle manually from its website (see above), as Fedora ships a "broken" version of Gradle. Use yum install gradle only if you know what you're doing.
  2. Windows: Set environment variables for Gradle.
    • Go back to Environment Variables and then create a new system variable.
    • For Variable Name, input GRADLE_HOME.
    • For Variable Value, input something similar to C:\Gradle-3.0 exactly as shown (or wherever your Gradle installation is), and click Ok.
    • Scroll down to Path again, and append ;%GRADLE_HOME%\bin EXACTLY AS SHOWN and click Ok. Once again, double-check the location.
  3. Open up your command line and run gradle. If it says "Welcome to Gradle [version].", then you're good to go. If not, either try the steps again.

Setup Git

Git is used to clone CopyPaste and update your local copy.

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

Setup CopyPaste

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

  1. Open up your command line.
  2. Navigate to a place where you want to download CopyPaste source (eg C:\Github\CopyPaste\) by executing cd [folder location]. This location is known as basefolder from now on.
  3. Execute git clone This will download CopyPaste' source into basefolder.
  4. Right now, you should have a directory that looks something like:

	\-CopyPaste' files (should have `build.gradle`)

Compile CopyPaste

  1. Execute gradlew setupDecompWorkspace. This sets up Forge and downloads the necessary libraries to build CopyPaste. This might take some time, be patient.
    • You will generally only have to do this once until the Forge version in changes.
  2. Execute gradlew build. If you did everything right, BUILD SUCCESSFUL will be displayed after it finishes. This should be relatively quick.
    • If you see BUILD FAILED, check the error output (it should be right around BUILD FAILED), fix everything (if possible), and try again.
  3. Go to basefolder\CopyPaste\build\libs.
    • You should see a .jar file named CopyPaste-universal--0.0.#.jar, where # is the build_number value in
  4. Copy the jar into your Minecraft mods folder, and you are done! (~/.minecraft/mods on Linux)
  5. Alternatively, you can also run ./gradlew runClient to start Minecraft with this jar.

Updating Your Repository

In order to get the most up-to-date builds, you'll have to periodically update your local repository.

  1. Open up your command line.
  2. Navigate to basefolder 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.

  5. Click Submit New Issue, and wait for feedback!

NOTE: A video explaining how to is here.

For Developers

PR's (pull requests) are required to get code onto the develop and master branches.

To do this, the easiest way is to download sourcetree or gitkraken. Install it, and add a repository (either clone, or select working directory) Then, click on branch, and create a new one. You can push to your own branch! Make sure your branch is selected, before you push! Example So it should be big black. Once you are satisfied, go to github, and create a pull request.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
