Minecraft’s Forestry Mod is, as the name implies, a mod that largely surrounds all things forest related. This includes farming equipment, machines and tools suited to the more agricultural Minecrafters. Regardless of whether you play for adventure, or play to farm, this mod is the perfect addition to your game; as it opens up so many more possibilities for you to explore.
As there are many other mods that concern themselves with agricultural work, as well as general manual labor, the Forestry mod was created with compatibility in mind. This mod is compatible with BuildCraft 3 and IndustrialCraft, to the extent where many of the machines in Forestry are reliant on BuildCraft’s RedStone Flux. Many of the machines also benefit from the pipes made available through BuildCraft, as well as the majority of BuildCraft’s structural additions. For these reasons, if you’re an avid BuildCraft user, then Forestry is the perfect addition- and likewise, if you opt for Forestry, then you should certainly opt for BuildCraft.

Ex Nihilo is a multipurpose mod that, at its core, gives you the tools to craft a variety of new items. It provides the mechanics needed to turn basic blocks of gravel and sand, for example, into essential materials needed for your survival. However, this mod also has a magical element, where it gives players the ability to summon or spawn mystical creatures – including Endermen- using interesting and unusual objects.
Where mechanics meet magic
This mod is a unique addition to Minecraft, primarily because it provides both a very functional and practical side- as well as a very magical and surreal element. Using the Ex Nihilo mod, you can spawn Blazes and Endermen, for example. These represent the more ‘magical’ side of the mod, particularly because to spawn these characters, you have to craft either an Angry or Creepy doll- and right click them inside of a barrel, filled with lava or ‘witch’ water. This is all very surreal, and strays significantly from the other function of the mod, which is crafting new items from basic blocks. Continue reading Ex Nihilo Mod for Minecraft 1.9/1.8.9/1.7.10
Thermal Expansion was originally designed to be used alongside the Minecraft mod ‘BuildCraft’. To date, however, the mod has become so much more than a companion to a better mod- and is now a whole world in its own right. Thermal Expansion, at its simplest, seeks to move items between various states of energy. If this sounds complex, it really isn’t. It’s simply a method designed to simplify the process of you moving your items, by reducing them into an easier state, for example by liquifying them.
A complex idea for a fun mod
The complexity surrounding the mod is what makes this such a fun addition to your game. Freezing water into ice, and transforming cobblestone into lava, involves scientific theories very complicated at their core. Using this mod, however, you can easily perform these tasks for your own convenience. The transformation process used to rely on BuildCraft energy, which operates using units called MJs, which stands for Minecraft Joules. Now, however, the mod is self reliant: which means that it runs on its own energy- a form called Redstone Flux (RF). Continue reading Thermal Expansion Mod for Minecraft 1.9/1.8/1.7.10
Waila Mod is a functional feature, typically used as a companion to the Not Enough Items (NEI) mod. It’s essentially a very fancy labelling tool, that allows you to easily recall the names and objects relating to your various mods. This is the perfect addition for those that favor using lots of mods during gameplay, and tend to forget relevant details pertaining to each. Waila is actually an acronym for ‘What are you looking at’, which in itself essentially sums up the mod.
A useful tool
Waila is an informational mod, that when used, will give you the details of any objects you may encounter during gameplay. It will show you this in the tooltip, that is also available to view while you’re actively playing within your world. The tooltip lists what mod the object is from, as well as any further details that the creator of the mod has supplied. This is ideal for those that enjoy playing strategically, and also perfect for those who are a little reluctant to introduce too many mods into vanilla gameplay, out of fear that the game will become too disorganized or too difficult to trace. As this is a common concern for Not Enough Items users, Waila has become the perfect solution. Continue reading Waila Mod for Minecraft 1.9/1.8.9/1.7.10
Pam’s HarvestCraft is a great mod for foodie Minecrafters, who enjoy eating their crops as much as they enjoy harvesting them. This delightful mod is suitable for players who prefer to play a more vanilla version of the game; however, it’s also well suited to the more adventurous users who tend to pursue a modified gameplay.
Revolutionize your crops
Pam’s HarvestCraft is a mod that focuses primarily on food and recipe availability. However, the mod isn’t limited to providing you with more food alone. It also gives you new varieties of crops to play around with, enabling you to experience a whole new world of harvesting. In addition to adding new crops to your Minecraft world, the mod also introduces new tools to the game, which will make harvesting new food that much easier. Continue reading Pam’s HarvestCraft Mod for Minecraft 1.9/1.8.9/1.7.10
BuildCraft Mod is such an entity that’s its almost become an essential addition to Minecraft, at least for those that shy away from the pure ‘vanilla’ experience. BuildCraft is a mod that facilitates mining, by providing new tools and equipment, that make the process much more efficient. The mod also enables users to build weird and wonderful structures- that can prove both useful and equally useless during gameplay. This mod is a longstanding addition that is constantly improving, and is always recommended by seasoned Minecrafters, particularly those that experiment with many new mods.
A varied mod
BuildCraft introduces lots of new tools to the game, but many sources cite the addition of pipes as the most important. BuildCraft adds great new pipes to your Minecraft world, that allow you to transport energy and items between your inventories and machines. It’s not so much the pipe that’s exciting, as much as the amount of different pipes available. There are wood pipes, emerald pipes, obsidian pipes and sandstone pipes- to name a few. The huge variety of pipes opens up so many more possibilities, in terms of what you can transfer. Continue reading BuildCraft Mod for Minecraft 1.8.9/1.7.10
The XRay mod introduces X-ray vision into your Minecraft world, a feature that will allow you to spot ores more easily. More than just providing you with cool vision, the mod also facilitates your mining process, and helps you to spot blocks throughout your world. This, in turn, can help you craft more items and give you an advantage over other players.
XRay mod can be used both on single and multiplayer servers, and after the initial installation, the effects are almost immediate. Minecraft provides multiple opportunities and offers many uses for players. The vision helps you ignore any unneeded blocks, and it also provides night vision; which allows you to see in mines, shafts and caves. The shortcut for night vision is the letter L, which acts the hotkey for this function. Continue reading XRay Mod for Minecraft 1.9/1.8.9/1.8
