How to Mod Minecraft with Add-Ons

Customize Minecraft and share it with your friends

Start Modding Minecraft Today!

Microsoft has been creating a new framework for making Minecraft mods. Minecraft Pocket Edition and Minecraft Windows 10 Edition were the first versions to support Add-Ons. This is a new way to customize Minecraft and easily share your new gameplay with anyone.

Past Minecraft Modding courses would require Java development environments and get into some difficult programming. In addition to that, it was not easily to keep mods up to date and it was difficult to share and install. Add-Ons makes it easy!

This training is created to teach you exactly how Add-Ons works and how you can create your own Minecraft gameplay by using the Add-On framework.

While Add-Ons only run on Pocket Edition and Windows 10 Edition, they can be developed on any platform.
