For some mods, the commands added to Minecraft are absolutely vital to the mod’s function. While a mod like Extra Food has no commands at all and simply features a host of new recipes for food items, others like WorldEdit, to name a popular one, come with a long list of commands. People who make mods sometimes run into problems when trying to implement commands and that’s where the Command Syntax Mod comes in to make things easier. It actually highlights elements of a command, both in the command block interface as well as the chat window, which makes those elements easier to see.
On top of that, the Command Syntax Mod also visually marks any syntax errors which might occur when trying to implement commands in Minecraft. This in turn makes debugging new commands a breeze, since it shows exactly where something is wrong in the command code. That tells the player precisely what needs to be fixed, which takes a lot of the guesswork out of making commands function as intended. While this mod does relatively little in terms of changing Minecraft gameplay, it is invaluable to map makers and those who like to craft command blocks, as it will simply help make these things work.
The Command Syntax Mod is a technical mod, not meant for the casual player. It’s more for people who have been designing their own mods and Minecraft material for some time, players who now want to speed up the process. It isn’t recommended for those who are just beginning to mod either, since they won’t know what to look for in the first place, even if this mod would put it right in front of their face. For now, the mod is compatible with Minecraft version 1.8 only, but updates are planned to backtrack and make it work with earlier versions of the game as well.
