Here’s another useful tool for modders out there. Whether you’re making your own Minecraft mods or trying to utilize those created by someone else, the Render Player API mod will give you access to part of Minecraft you normally couldn’t touch, thereby allowing you to manage and change these aspects of the game (or allowing a mod you have installed to do the same thing). Many popular mods utilize this particular API, including Aether II, AssassinCraft, Sports Mod and more, so you might already have this tool installed without even realizing it. If not, it’s still worth a look, given how much fun these mods are.
When using the Render Player API mod, you will want to avoid using other modloader tools like MCPatcher, Forge, etc. These have been repeatedly reported to have compatibility issues with this tool, and that means you’ll have to pick and choose your mods carefully if you don’t want Minecraft to bug and crash out every time you try to start it. It’s possible to keep separate sets of mods and tools in their own folders and just swap them in and out of Minecraft’s MODS folder whenever you want to switch things up; this solves the problem and lets you have the best of everything at the same time.
Render Player API is a client API which provides access to
