How to install/download/get MCreator
Note: You can only mod Minecraft on the PC and Mac versions, you cannot mod Minecraft on console (Playstation or Xbox) and as far as I'm aware you cannot mod the pocket edition (from the app store on windows or on tablet).
So you want to use MCreator to mod Minecraft? Before you start downloading it there are a few things you need to check first so here is a checklist for you;
- Make sure you actually have Minecraft on the computer you are using. To mod Minecraft using MCreator you need to infact own Minecraft and have it installed on the same computer. As far as I'm aware you can only mod Minecraft (using MCreator or otherwise) on the PC or Mac version of the game, NOT the console or pocket/app editions. If you need/want to purchase Minecraft you can find it on the official Mincraft.net store here.
- Make sure your Java is up to date. - visit https://www.java.com/verify if you are not running the latest version please update
