    Default More things to read

    The idea collecting phase for the TWC Plugin has begun, and we have a forum created for that purpose.

    It is important that you read this carefully because anything that doesn't follow it will be closed.

    If you fancy helping you can fill out this form to join the Plugin Staff. Please note that you'll be required to write Java code as part of the Staff, and as such you need to know how to do that. The other staff will be on hand to help you with problems but they're not going to teach you Java from the ground up.

    I'm sure you're all bursting with ideas for the new plugin, so go forth and post!

    Their blindness will not stop them looking at the subforum, merely from making any practical use of looking at something they cannot see.

    Regarding Java knowledge, please don't feel intimidated if you have little to no programming skill. Whilst jumping straight into our projects isn't going to happen without some background knowledge, I personally am happy to lend a hand to anyone willing to spend some time to learning something like this. It's not for everyone, but if you've ever wanted to get coding and never got round to it, there's an opportunity here!

    I have a background in scripting total war games, soi can definately learn Java. Could probably help you guys, I'll code my own plugin suggestions if you teach me.

    There's a bit of a difference between "lending a hand" and teaching. I'm not going to walk someone through everything; but if you've got questions about coding or issues you're having I'm more than happy to answer them.

    There's an absolute wealth of tutorials and information out there. I highly recommend getting an IDE such as Eclipse or Netbeans though before making a start. Having to compile text files from a command prompt isn't exactly a great introduction to a language.

    Ugh Eclipse and Netbeans.

    Starting out on Java for the first time, I'd recommend using cmd prompt. Once you have Java installed, to run your program its as simple as using javac and java.

    How? In cmd prompt
    Code:
    cd Desktop (go to where your .java file is located, eg: the desktop)
    javac <file name> (compiles your .java file)
    java <compiled file> (runs the java class file. In other words, it will run your "program")
    My example:
    Code:
    cd Desktop
    javac -g mytest.java
    java mytest
    The output:


    And here is the code:
    Code:
    class mytest
    {
        public static void main (String[] args)
        {
            System.out.println("Hello TWC");
            System.out.println("Did you know MHN is a bunny?");
        }
    }
    You can type javac and java alone on the line to see what else these two programs can do for you (such as compile and give you debugging info (-g) if there's a problem).

    Admittedly though, it wouldn't hurt to use something like Elcipse to handle projects like Minecraft plugins. You just need to know how to use them, which involves a high learning curve from the start

    This brings back memories of my Java class in my first year of Uni. Good times. I wrote a program that monitored energy consumption in a house and tried to flatten out peaks by changing the time things like dishwashers and washing machines ran. It was glorious.

    I can't disagree with you more. You have your file with text editing, you have nicely annotated error messages, and all you have to do is hit "Run". Not to mention stuff like refactoring tools and a debugger. If you're really insistent on trying command line compilation, get a decent text editor at a very minimum, such as Notepad++ which can at least annotate your syntax (odds are you're doing that already, but you might be really masochistic for all I know ).

    Though frankly, with most interesting programs you'll want a few classes at a minimum and you absolutely don't want them in the same file. At that point an IDE is incredibly handy.
