Player API Mod is a base mod that gives third party mods managed access to the main player classes, including the client class ‘EntityPlayerSP’ aka ‘bew’, the server class ‘EntityPlayerMP’ aka ‘lf’ and the bukkit class ‘EntityPlayer’.


Player API is surely on the first place of your must-have mod list, especially if you are a mod developer. It allows users to access and change some usually-can-not-be-touched part of Minecraft, like client, server and bukkit classes. The mod is literally a base mod for others to work in. It helps to minimize incompatibility between mods, thus decrease errors such as lagging, crashes, black screen, etc. Due to the fact that Player API is quite a complicated mod, it is recommended that you have some knowledge about Java and the mod itself. Don’t just mess around without any idea of what you’re doing or your precious Minecraft world will be destroyed in seconds. So be careful.

Player API is compatible with Minecraft Forge, but remember to install it after Minecraft Forge if you want the game to run properly. Noticeably, this method only works with Minecraft 1.6.1 and earlier. For Minecraft 1.6 and later use Player API forge. For Minecraft 1.7.2 and later use Player API core.

  • Aether
  • Aether II
  • Atlantis Mod
  • Battlegear (until Minecraft 1.2.5)
