About the Minecraft Mods
Tinkers’ Construct is a mod about putting tools together in a wide variety of ways, then modifying them until they turn into something else. The tools never disappear and can be named and changed to your heart’s desire. Once you make them, they’re yours forever. Any world generation included in the mod is more efficient, but not required to progress.
Galacticraft allows you to explore the solar system in your own spaceship.
- Travel throughout the solar system!
- Create and customize your very own spaceship (customization coming soon)!
- Explore new planets and moons!
- Electrical and Oxygen System!
- SMP Support – Explore with your friends!
- Multiple language support!
- New mobs!
- Lots of new items and blocks!
- Dungeons (coming soon)!
- API to allow modders to add more content, including whole new solar systems and galaxies!
ExtrabiomesXL is a collaborative open source mod for Minecraft which adds new biomes and an assortment of natural blocks and items that enhance gameplay and make exploring fun and interesting.

The official ExtrabiomesXL wiki is the best place to read any kind of information regarding ExtrabiomesXL.
The most notable release is Treecapitator 2.0! This release of Treecapitator adds a few awesome new features: auto tree detection and auto axe detection! That’s right! No mucking around with the config file is needed to get trees and axes from other mods to work (provided the other mods are coded correctly). When you use an axe to try and chop a log of any kind Treecapitator will try to determine if the item you’re using is an axe and whether the block you’re breaking is a log (and also is part of a tree). If those conditions are met the axe will be registered as such, the tree will be registered as such, and all of that will be automagically added to your local config file! Neato!
Not Enough Items (NEI)
NEI is a successor to both Too Many Items and Recipe Book. It arose around the same time as Craft Guide when Alexandria and a few others on the IRC suggested that I merge both Too Many Items and Recipe Book to remove their greatest flaws, ironically too many items, or in the case of recipe book, too many recipies. Too Many Items was great, but the one thing it lacked was an easy way to search and sort your items. When you had a mod like Red Power coming along with 10000 items both TMI and Recipe Book were racking up the pages. Even if you don’t want to use NEI for cheating in items, you will likely feel right at home with the Recipe component of the mod.
