Thanks so much for putting this together. I used to write mods years ago and was not looking forward to making eclipse work again, found a number of people suggesting IntelliJ and decided to try it since I found your very simple walk through. I let it run while making dinner and had it all set up.
The only hickups: It failed twice during decomp, first because I hadn't increased the amount of memory for java on this machine (but I had on my other one, I just forgot), and my connection dropped and I spent some time trying to figure out why the build failed before realizing it was my connection. So, if the build fails during the download, check those two things.
