 ==== Introduction ==== ==== Introduction ====
  
-One of the first things you'll want to do with Fabric is adding a new item. +Adding a basic item is one of the first steps in modding. You're going to need to create an ''​Item'' ​object, register it, and give it a texture. To add additional behavior to the item you will need a custom ​Item class. ​In this tutorial and all future ones, the “tutorial” namespace is used as a placeholder. If you have a separate modid, feel free to use it instead.

 ==== Registering an Item ==== ==== Registering an Item ====
  
-Just like most additions you make in Fabric, you'll need to register items to the item Registry. You can call the registry with //​Registry.register//​. The first argument is the registry type, such as Registry.ITEM or Registry.BLOCK. The second argument is the name of your addition-- remember to append it with your namespace! In most cases, the last argument is an instance of what you are registering. +First, create an instance of Item. We'll store it at the top of our initializer class. The constructor ​takes in an Item.Settings object, which is used to set item properties such as the inventory category, durability, and stack count.

-First, ​we'​ll ​create an instance of our item. We'll store it at the top of our initializer ​class, but it can be stored in any other class. The constructor ​will require ​an Item.Settings object. This is used to set properties such as the creative ​inventory category, durability, and stack count. ​In our Item.Settings we're just going to tell our item to go in the Misc category. It's useful to keep an instance so you can reference and access it later from different classes: +public class ExampleMod implements ModInitializer

-  public class ExampleMod implements ModInitializer +    // an instance of our new item 
-  +    public static final Item FABRIC_ITEM = new Item(new Item.Settings().group(ItemGroup.MISC));​ 
-      // an instance of our new item +    [...] 
-      public static final Item FABRIC_ITEM = new Item(new Item.Settings().itemGroup(ItemGroup.MISC));​ +
-      [...] +</​code>​ 
-  +You'll use the vanilla registry system for registering new content. The basic syntax is ''​Registry#​register(Registry TypeIdentifier, Content)''​. Registry types are stored as static fields ​in the ''​Registry''​ object, and the identifier is what labels ​your contentContent is an instance of whatever you're adding. This can be called anywhere ​as long as it occurs ​during initialization.

-You'​re ​probably annoyed with the black & purple missing texture, so we'll fix that now+Registering a texture for an item requires an item model .json file and a texture image. ​You'​re ​going to need to add these to your resource directoryThe direct path of each is:

-Note that my_mod is your modid. Our example ​texture ​can be found [[https://​i.imgur.com/​CqLSMEQ.png|here]].+If you registered ​your item properly in the first step, your game will complain about a missing ​texture ​file in a fashion similar to this:

-To add additonal ​behavior to the item you will need an Item class. ​We'll name our Item class '​FabricItem'​. Create a constructor ​taking ​an Item.Settings object; your class should now look like this:+To add additional ​behavior to the item you will need to create ​an Item class. ​The default ​constructor ​requires ​an Item.Settings object

 +    public FabricItem(Settings settings) 
 +    { 
 +        super(settings);​ 
 +    } 
 +
 +</​code>​
  
-  public ​class FabricItem extends Item +A practical use-case for a custom item class would be making the item play a sound when you click with it: 
-  { +<code java [enable_line_numbers="​true"​]>​ 
-      public FabricItem(Settings settings) +public class FabricItem extends Item 
-      { +
-          super(settings);​ +    public FabricItem(Settings settings) 
-      } +    
-  } +        super(settings);​ 
- +    }
-We'll make it to play a sound on use by overriding Item's use method. +
- +
-  public class FabricItem extends Item +
-  +
-      public FabricItem(Settings settings) +
-      +
-          super(settings);​ +

-      +    
-  }+} 
 +</​code>​
  
-Finally, in our mod initializer,​ we'll replace our Item instance ​with FabricItem.+Replace the old Item object ​with an instance of your new item class: 
 +<code java [enable_line_numbers="​true"​]>​ 
 +public class ExampleMod implements ModInitializer 
 +
 +    // an instance of our new item 
 +    public static final FabricItem ​FABRIC_ITEM = new FabricItem(new Item.Settings().group(ItemGroup.MISC));​ 
 +    [...] 
 +
 +</​code>​ 
 +If you did everything correctly, using the item should now play a sound.
  
-  public class ExampleMod implements ModInitializer +==== What if I want to change the stack size of my item? ====
-  { +
-      // an instance ​of our new item +
-      public static final FabricItem FABRIC_ITEM ​new FabricItem(new Item.Settings().itemGroup(ItemGroup.MISC));​ +
-      [...] +
-  }+
  
-If you did everything correctly, using the item should now play sound.+For this you would use ''​maxCount(int size)''​ inside ItemSettings to specify ​the max stack size. Note that if your item is damageable you cannot specify ​maximum stack size or the game will throw a RuntimeException. 
 +<code java [enable_line_numbers="​true"​]>​ 
 +public class ExampleMod implements ModInitializer 
 +
 +    // an instance of our new item, where the maximum stack size is 16 
 +    public static final FabricItem FABRIC_ITEM = new FabricItem(new Item.Settings().group(ItemGroup.MISC).maxCount(16));​ 
 +    [...]
