FallFest 1.16 is a modding event that will run from Thursday, October 1st thru Thursday,
2020. Like all ModFest modding events, FallFest 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.
ModFest regularly runs modding events for each major Minecraft version, but 'MiniFest'
events are slightly different. While the main ModFest modding events are open enough to
essentially any mod in that follows the rules, MiniFest events require you to meet
additional criteria, usually revolving around a specific theme. This time around, the theme
FallFest will be much more display-oriented than previous ModFest events. The showcase
server will have the theme of a fall/Halloween festival, and
players can participate in fun minigames, events, and battles, while finding collectibles,
hanging out, and getting lost in mazes. While ModFest's end goal has always been about
creating more mods, we would ask that for this one, you also consider how your mod could be
used to make the FallFest showcase server a fun place to play on. Consider mechanics for
minigames and other things that players could interact with when on the server.
Time until you must stop coding:
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.
“What kind of mod should I make,” you ask? Here are a few simple ideas to
get you started (just try not to make the same mod as someone else):
Unlike past ModFest events, we aren't doing sign ups! Just make your mod within the time and
submit it at the end via our Discord server (more instructions on how that works will come
later, make sure to join our Discord server for updates).
Also, definitely come check out our Discord server if you want to see previews of the mods
people are working on or are just curious about ModFest in general. Feel free to chat, lurk,
ask questions, or participate in FallFest 1.16.
