isn't better use the lateset versions? because as too much know the 1.8 version is finished and there's not much mods for that version.
The community of MCreator has voted for a 1.7.10 Version but the next version will be for 1.8
I think it would be nice to be able to make say a 1.7.10 mod while using the 1.8 MCreator. maybe choosing Version per workspace? :P
Always using MCreator <3
