I'm new to Minecraft modding (just started picking up some tutorials today) and somewhat a beginner to Java (about 7 months experience).
The tutorial I am specifically following is this one right here (and I marked the current relevant time): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fhhMoxKSkss&t=335
I'm trying to localize the names of the items so that it shows as "Table" instead of "item.ItemTable.name" in the game. I think the problem is that he is giving the tutorial in Eclipse while I am using IntelliJ Idea. In my head there is some "extra step" I need to do because of this. I launched the project in Eclipse without making any further changes to find that it DOES in fact work in Eclipse. However, I do not prefer that IDE.

When I run the Minecraft client in IntelliJ, the name of the item remains unlocalized, but in Eclipse it does change.
There must be a missing step here that's staring me in the face. I was just hoping someone could point it out to me since I can't find the solution anywhere. Thanks in advance!
