  1. Hello,
    I'dd really like to learn to program my own plugins.
    I already learned visual basic programming, and when I go to youtube watch a tutorial how to make plugins with java I see that the coding isn't much different. Also on the internet these 2 languages are pretty simular. I want to know if it is possible to write a plugin with visual basic, cause that would make it lots easier for me cause I don't have to learn java that way, and I won't get confused by the 2 different languages.
    Because they are very simular, and on internet there are tools to convert visual basic to java, it should be possible.
    Does anyone know how to do this?
    Thanks a lot

    I first started (seriously) programming with vb.NET. I can tell you they are different enough not to mix them up but similar enough to let you easily learn java. If you are good with VB java will be no hassle for you. I highly suggest getting heavy into Java because the job market for it is HUGE compared to those who want VB programmers. Things can get jacked up with those VB - > Java tools real easy as they are not directly linear to each other. Only rule you gotta force yourself to remember is ---> " ; " <--- and your set!
  3. Unfortunaly, no. Bukkit (or minecraft) don't work with VB and never will. Your best bet is to just learn Java. after all, you said they looked pretty similar.
  4. Ok, thanks. Then I will need to learn java to...
    Thanks anyways.
  5. you can make an plugin that read those virtuel basic files (wait then you also need to learn java to, nvt)
  6. lol ferry, would be a nice idea if i didnt need to learn java for it :p

    If you don't want to learn Java, and you just want to do simple things, check out Skript.
