Welcome to ModFest 1.17: Be Gay Do Crimes!

ModFest 1.17: Be Gay Do Crimes is a modding event that will run from Friday, June 18th thru Sunday, July 4th, 2021. ModFest is a great excuse to try something new, practice your modding abilities, get starting on a new mod you've been thinking about, or any other reason to make a mod.

Entry requirements:

  • Runs on Minecraft 1.17.x under the Fabric or Quilt loaders.
  • Cannot cause massive compatibility issues with other entries
    • No mods that drastically alter core gameplay. Do not modify any essential game mechanics in a way that makes them harder or annoying to use (no backwards controls, funny crashes, upside down menus, chat-based nausea, inverse terrain generation, or other things in the same category)
  • Mods must be created for this event in the allotted time period. This begins on the first second of June 18th UTC, and ends on the very last second of July 4th UTC.
  • Use of one of the themes is encouraged. Not doing so will put you at a disadvantage when it comes to awards
  • All team members must be present in the ModFest Discord Server
  • Using pre-created libraries, assets, or code is fine if they were not made specifically for your entry. The following are some acceptable use cases (but not all):
    • Using a library you or someone else made as long as it wasn't made with the intention of using it for your ModFest entry
    • Using public domain assets or assets you made in the past that were not made specifically for your ModFest entry
    • Using open source code (of yours or someone else) that was not made specifically for your ModFest entry
  • After submission, developers may resubmit up to five patches to fix errors or crashes. If the mod continues to cause crashes after five patches, it will be disqualified.
  • Nothing offensive or harrasive. This should go without saying: if it makes fun of someone, can reasonably be considered offensive, or crashes when somebody with a certain UUID joins the game, it is out.

You can work:

  • By yourself
  • With a team of your choosing

Themes:

  • Vehicles & Transportation
  • Myths & Legends
  • Construction & Excavation

Awards:

ModFest awards are just for fun and ModFest is not a highly competitive event. The ultimate goal of the event is simple: to make mods and have a good time doing it. If you stress about the awards the whole time, you probably won't have as much fun.
