Minecraft Help?

My son is getting pretty well versed at this game and we are noticing that there is pretty much chaos when it comes to finding and downloading and installing utilities such as mods for it.  This is clearly a maverick-type arena where folks sit at home and create their own worlds and mods etc and then share them via third party download utilities and use youtube as a means of providing assistance.

Our problem du jour is to download and install mcreator by pylo.  There are instructions for the older versions but nothing that I can see for the newer one. Any help or anyone know of a resource for this problem?

Are you using DE 1.1.7?  

The tutorial videos are on the Minecraft Forum home page for MCreator - you need to hit the "Show" buttons to reveal them.  Snapshots/installer instructions are here

The install process is pretty much unchanged.  Where are you stuck?

We really aren't stuck per se, we just were a little disoriented by the lack of tutorials to the new version.  I think we are using DE 1.1.6.

Do you need to connect to a server to use MCreator?

No you can create the mods just using the MCreator installation with the Minecraft .exe installed.

If you are getting " !! Can not find server sources, try decompiling !!" when trying to compile mods it's likely it's a bug in the install - try working on Tool mods to begin with & wait for the update which should fix blocks/food.
