I saw a YouTube video on how to create a custom Minecraft client using MCP. I also know that people make their own, so I wanted to make one but I am curious if it's legal or not. So let me ask you, is it?

  • Yes they’re legal. But the servers you connect to, if they’re run by other people, may have their own rules, and may disallow custom clients. You’ll have to read the rules of that particular server. If you’re running your own server, you can do whatever you want. – Dan Bron Jul 31 at 9:32

  • Why delete the post? If it could help others, it seems prudent to leave it up. – Schism Jul 31 at 19:29
  • @DanBron Please don't answer questions in comments. – pppery Jul 31 at 19:54
  • I believe clients and servers that bypass the need for a valid account are illegal. – SF. Aug 3 at 8:34
