I'll try the cntrl+shift+O next time, I got it all working by hand typing in the imports.
And yes, my modid name is ss
@Mod(modid = "ss", name = "SimpleStuff", version = "1.0")
Now, when I first went through I named it SS, I wasn't aware it couldn't have a capital. I used windows explorer to rename it ss instead. then changed the modid from SS to ss.
