MCreator is intended to create and customize Minecraft. As you probably know, Minecraft is a popular game that allows not only playing but also participating in the design process. One way to do this is by creating mods, which add content to the game, change interaction modes and give the game a new look-and-feel.

The interface is MCreator is quite similar to that of an IDE; however, it is actually a WYSIWYG environment, in which you create items and add interactions without writing a single line of code. Even considering that it does not require any programming skills, the tool may look somewhat overwhelming to beginners. Needless to say, you have to be familiar with Minecraft as well. Fortunately, there is a lot of online documentation to consult as well as forums to interact with other modders (mod creators).

The program supports the whole process that starts when you create custom elements and ends with packing and sharing them with other members of the Minecraft community. It has an integrated resource browser that lets you manage the different assets, such as pictures, sounds, models and textures.

MCreator supports creating various types of mods, including blocks, resources and machines. It also comes with a texture maker, which lets you start from presets to create animated textures. Likewise, it allows managing events to create complex actions. Finally, you will surely appreciate its support of full screen mode, custom armor models and personalized potion effects.

All in all, MCreator is one of the most popular mod creators available. It is flexible enough to let the users put all their ideas into practice. Luckily, the product is completely free to use.
