Quilt's (VERY LATE) October Update

ToffeeMax

10 November 2021

It is now well past the End of October and closer to Halloween then I’d like to admit. Here is some of the more fleshed out updates about the Quilt Project:

Quilt Mappings are now usable in Loom!

Have you wanted to use mappings other than Yarn or MojMap?

Quilt Mappings is a Yarn derivative that allows inspiration from MojMap. This allows for Quilt Mappings to map the obscure constants in Minecraft code and more.

However, this can mean that Quilt Mappings maybe be different from Yarn.

The provided gradle plugin allows Quilt Mappings to be used in Loom and Fabric environments. Currently, it is 1.17.1+ only; with no plans of backporting to earlier versions.

Benefits of Quilt Mappings:

  1. Faster turn around.
    • For the past couple weeks, Quilt Mappings has been out before intermediary. While this doesn’t help too much in loom, it is something to look forward to in the future.
  2. Consistent names.
    • Quilt Mapping names are never mismatched, meaning you won’t find issues where names swap between versions.
  3. Familiarity of Yarn with the completeness of MojMap.
    • While not complete, Quilt Mappings has the goal of 100% mapping coverage for Minecraft. Any help toward this goal would be appreciated as well!
