Mods for Minecraft 1.8

Discover some of the wonderful mods for Minecraft version :version. These will make your Minecraft world even more fascinating to explore by adding a whole bunch of new functionalities, items, blocks and even new landscapes.

MixerLogger

1.20.41.20.31.20.21.20.11.20+ 41

This is a tool used for debugging modpacks which scans your mods for mods which have annotations associated with common Mixer APIs such as SpongeMixin, Tuna-Bytes (soon), PizzaMixin(soon), and AssistMixer(soon) as well as some Aspect Orientated Programming APIs. For all the files that meet these criterias, it lists the name, the jar file it is in, the known targets (except for ones which do not specify the targets in the file itself like AssistMixer), the Class References, the Method References, and the Field References, with the possibility to add even more information in the future. On launchers which support System.out.println it will show the information in the console, the logs are also saved in (.)minecraft/logs/MixerLogger.log so you can access it. This is helpful if you are making a very large modpack and one of these breaks the game, this will allow you to have a better idea where it can be coming from. It loads itself before or during SpongeMixin or similar tools in most cases. The code for this is largelly loader independent meaning with a basic entrypoint it can be supported on most loaders and even most games in Java. Same Jar is used in more than 1 loader. Should work with Abstraction layer mods like Special Compatibility Operation, NeoFromTheMatrix, or Sintrya Connector just fine.The logs will be a tiny bit hard to read, but ideally anyone who is using this will be using ⌘+F or Ctrl+F to find specific peices of information. An example of a individual mixer class's info is as followsClass Name: net.fabricmc.fabric.mixin.client.model.BakedModelManagerMixinTargets: [net.minecraft.class_1092]ClassRef: [net.minecraft.class_1087, org.spongepowered.asm.mixin.Mixin, java.util.Map, net.minecraft.class_1092, net.fabricmc.api.Environment, net.fabricmc.fabric.mixin.client.model.BakedModelManagerMixin, net.fabricmc.api.EnvType, org.spongepowered.asm.mixin.Shadow, java.lang.Object, net.fabricmc.fabric.impl.client.model.BakedModelManagerHooks, net.minecraft.class_2960]MethodRef: [java.util.Map.get(Ljava/lang/Object;)Ljava/lang/Object;]FieldRef: [net.fabricmc.fabric.mixin.client.model.BakedModelManagerMixin.field_5408:Ljava/util/Map;]Originating JAR: fabric-api-0.75.1+1.19.2.jar-------------------- But it can be more daunting for much larger ones LimitationsAt the moment only Sponge Mixin is supported but others are soon planned and we also plan to list more info about modified methods and RefMap parsing. This also only goes 1 level deep for nested jars and javassist is bundled (which could conflict with a few mods but most other mods run AFTER this one so you would already have your information by the time such package conflict could happen). This only scans existing Mixer classes not ones created during runtime. This can make the game possibly unstable and also makes the game take longer to load so if you are not using it I would not suggest keeping it in your mods folder. Also atm only the folder called "mods" is supported but this will change. Platform support.FeatureCreepFeatureCreep 4.0 Pre Release 18 will come with this built in but it will need to be enabled in the FeatureCreep config (in the etc directory in your Minecraft Folder). However this jar supports FeatureCreep 4 Pre Release 17 to an extent if not being run on one of the other mentioned platforms. If you are on MCForge and have FeatureCreep this mod will confict due to both having the same packages at least on 1.17 due to Module changes. On platforms which do not come with SpongeMixin or a supported mixer it will need to be installed normally. The FeatureCreep built-in version will be the best maintained. The Pre-17 and earlier version of the mod will duplicate on Pre-18 or newer and is generally unsupported. Works on games outside of Minecraft written in Java and can be used on other loaders like LiteLoader and Rift and NeoForge and possibly older versions of MC Forge if FeatureCreep is installed. MinecraftForgeShould work on 1.17+, 1.16.5 and earlier has changes in the ITransformationService making it hard to do in the same file. FabricMCShould work on any version and in non-Minecraft games. May work on QuiltMC and other FabricMC derivatives but it is untested. Legacy and Cursed Legacy Fabric should also work.

Random Things

1.14.41.12.21.121.11.21.11+ 10

One of the remarkable aspects of the Random Things mod is its versatility. Unlike other mods that focus on a specific theme or concept, Random Things offers an amazing mix of features that cater to a wide range of playstyles. From quirky gadgets and handy tools to whimsical creatures and enchanting potions, this mod adds an element of surprise and discovery to your gameplay. The number of features offered by this mod are too long to be listed here, so let's take a look at some of the cooler features that will elevate your gameplay.Turn your game world into a vibrant paradise by dyeing grass in any of the vanilla colours! Follow these simple steps: use a silk touch shovel to collect grass, craft grass seeds from the harvested grass by placing the grass block in a crafting table. Then place the grass seed and a vanilla dye to craft a coloured grass seed. Then, by right-clicking with a coloured grass seed on a patch of dirt, watch as it magically transforms into grass matching the seed's hue. The coloured grass spreads naturally, adding a pop of colour everywhere it goes, while respectfully not overshadowing the normal grass. Bring life to your landscapes with this exciting feature! The Advanced Redstone Repeater is a redstone repeater with configurable turn on / turn off delay. Unlike a normal redstone torch which just emits either a redstone signal of 15 or 0 with an advanced one you can configure the signal strength for the two states freely. It’s green while powered and red while unpowered. All of these Biome Blocks change their color depending on the biome they are in. The Biome Crystals needed to craft them can be found in all dungeon chests.The Fluid Display is a decorative block that can take on the textures of fluids. Just right click one with any kind of fluid container to set the fluid displayed. Right clicking it with something else will switch it between the flowing and stationary fluid texture. Shift right clicking it with an empty hand will rotate it.The Online Detector is a block that emits a redstone signal when a player you specify is online. Simply right click the block to open up its gui and input the name of the player you want to detect. While the specified player is online the block will emit a redstone signal, otherwise it won’t. The Sided Block of Redstone works like a normal Block of Redstone except it only outputs power on one side. The Quartz Lamp emits a light level of 15. However the light of this lamp is not actually visible. It still prevents stuff like mob spawning though. Quartz Glass is a block that is not solid for players and solid for every other entity. For crafting recipes and information on dozens of other features added by this mod, checkout this wiki.Discover the exciting features of this exceptional Forge mod by exploring the captivating screenshots provided below.

Fabric Language Kotlin

1.19.31.19.21.19.11.191.18.2+ 35

Fabric Language Kotlin is one of the many Fabric Language adapters for Kotlin. Language adapters let you write mods in programming languages other than pure Java (often but not always JVM-based languages). There are many big Fabric mods which use Kotlin includingAdorn    Inventory Tweaks    AE Additions – ExtraCells2 ForkBountiful DeftuLib    Hex     Casting   Industrial     Revolution    Inventerio   Kambrik    Lakeside    LibrarianLib    Level Up HP MirageFairy2023    Ping Wheel    Plethora Peripherals    Roughly Enough Trades    Roughly Enough Loot Tables    RSWires    TerrarianSlimes    Woods and MiresZoomify and many more. Kotlin is primarily a JVM-based programming language like Groovy or Scala and is in many ways considered a newer Scala (though Scala is still being developed), though it does not only compile to JVM, it can also compile to native or to JavaScript or even its own bytecode format. Fabric Language Kotlin is meant to be used with the JVM variant though.Kotlin as mentioned before has some in common with Scala and a little in common with Crystal. Kotlin Language is a must-use for many people, many people really like it, while others do not. One issue you have is if you use Kotlin you may have compatibility issues with lesser-known tool chains that you may port your mod too. But if you want to use Kotlin because you prefer it you can use this language adapter. There are reasons to prefer Kotlin if you like some of the features or if you want to also do things like Android development (which has recently started to recommend Kotlin over Java which it had previously). If you use Kotlin it is suggested you use IntelliJ because they are made by the same company and eclipse does not have quite as good of support for it.For players, you should be able to just install the mod in your mods folder. If you are a developer you will need to take extra steps and requires the user already know a little bit about using Kotlin with Gradle (but Groovy DSL can still be used unless you want Kotlin DSL). FabricMC has a tutorial which can be used with basic instructions about getting started. Fabric Language Kotlin does not rely on any specific version of Minecraft, just on Fabric loader.

TL skin and cape

1.19.31.19.21.19.11.191.18.2+ 32

TL skin and cape is a mod for Minecraft which adds integration with TLauncher and accounts for the use of Skins and Capes. TLauncher is one of the most popular launchers and also one of the best ones. Tlauncher has a large array of features and skins and capes are one of them. This mod is only officially supported on Tlauncher on supported configurations, it may work on other launchers with your TL account or on unsupported versions, but it is not guaranteed.The skins and capes you have will be viewable by other players, but it is recommended that they have the mod installed also. It is possible to use without a TL account, and you will automatically get a skin selected many times even when you do not ask for one, but to get the most use you should preferably have a Tlauncher account, if you want even more features you can use Tlauncher Premium (though it is not available in the US or Canada). One issue is if you use a Mojang account or just play the game without an account at all in offline mode (you will get a default skin, there are many like the ones shown and others like a Zelda-style one), you may be sometimes automatically given a skin, or in some cases even if you use Minecraft Premium you may not have access to your Mojang/Microsoft Skin. Additionally, in Vanilla the mod auto installs and the Vanilla game when run from Tlauncher calls itself modded.The mod is available on a wide range of platforms officially, such asMC  Forge MC Forge Optifine    Optifine    Forge LiteLoaderOptiForgeLiteLoader FabricMC (but not yet officially FabricSodium)Vanillaand more going back a pretty long time.You may also get the mod to work on more platforms, such as Fabric derivatives such as QuiltMC, but it is not officially supported and may have issues. In most cases, the mod will install automatically. If in Tlauncher you have access to the little blue TL Logo next to the version, that means TL Skin and cape should install automatically, you will just get a prompt asking you about your skin while trying to launch.If you want to configure your character you should get a Tlauncher account and then you can download skins, HD Skins, capes, animated capes, and more from their website or other cape and skin websites. You can download a wide range of capes including the Russian flag, Optifine, Minecon, and many other capes and skins. You can even search skins by a Mojang or Tlauncher username. Do note though that if you need an animated cape you should use a Tlauncher Premium account (Which is not the same as a Mojang Premium account and does not let you play on online mode servers like Hypixel).Many of these functionalities are more advanced and convenient than what Microsoft do. It is also very useful when someone can't pay for the game or have issues downloading. Tlauncher has been very good at making the game accessible to places that are under sanctions and can not download things like Java or buy the game by providing some of this stuff on their servers. Tlauncher is a spreader of freedom, equality and truth. It is also one of the easiest Launchers to use and very good with older and more obscure versions and clients or mod loaders. It is also one of the most popular launchers, the 1st 3rd party launcher I used and one of the top-ranking on search engines. The discord server got thousands of members within the 1st day and has more users than most launcher discords including PrismMC, PolyMC, MultiMC, GDLauncher, TL Legacy and others. It is partly known for its ability to play for free, though many big servers do not support offline accounts, many smaller ones, especially in the Spanish-speaking world do. TL does seem to also be very popular there.There is common misinformation about TL and TL Skin and Cape being malware, but this is untrue, we looked at the skin and cape mod ourselves and did not see malware and the methods used by the people claiming it is a virus are untrustworthy and have been debunked by the people at Tlauncher (it is even safer than Discord and most of the people who claimed it was malware are on Windows systems using the exe and not the jar for whatever reason, so this argument would be less valid if you use the jar and are not on windows anyhow.) and are likely done by Tlauncher’s competitors, as in general Tlaucher gets lots of slanders all around the community.Does not need Fabric API on Fabric

MmmMmmMmmMmm (Target Dummy)

1.19.21.19.11.191.18.21.18.1+ 16

MmmMmmMmmMmm (Target Dummy) adds a Target Dummy that can be equipped with armour, which will reduce the damage it takes. It can also be dispensed from a dispenser and changed to mimic different mobs. The dummy shows damage dealt to it via numbers fading in and out of the screen, and the numbers change colour depending on the type of damage. You can customise the visuals and behaviour of the dummy in the mod config and shear it for different skins.The basic target dummy can be found in the combat tab and is good for practising combat. The dummy has numbers coming out of it, these numbers show how much damage is being done. You can hit it unlimited times and it will not break. There is also another number called DPS (Damage per second) which is also shown. With the hand you will struggle to get past 1,3 Damage per second, but with different weapons that number can get much higher.The mod is good for the post 1.9 combat system which requires you to not spam click as much, but can also be used to practise alternate combat systems. Such as Zelda’s Sword Skills, Commie’s Combat Tweaks, Golden Age Combat, and Combat Tests.The Dummies can also be equipped with armour and even mimic other mobs and have mob heads. This allows you to test various different types of weapons on various mobs to test how they would go in a fight and prepare you for PVP or for going against a mob you want to fight in the future. You can even test different types of enchantments, and dispenser drops, and even modify the appearance, skin and swing amounts, and messages with the config or even sheers.This mod is originally inspired by a 1.12 mod by Bonusboni but it adds many changes making it far better and it is for newer versions.The mod requires Moonlight Lib and is made by the same creator (like many of the other mods which use moonlight lib).

Extra Golems

1.19.21.19.11.191.18.21.17.1+ 15

The mod Extra Golems, as the name suggests, adds extra golems to your Minecraft world. Golems in Minecraft have not been updated since they were first added many years ago. There is only one variant of the Golem in Minecraft, known as the Iron Golem. The Golems attack hostile mobs that hurt the villagers and are guards of the village.With this mod, you can get many variants of the Golem that can be made using different blocks in Minecraft. Their health and power depend on the block used to build them. Summoning them is the same as the regular Iron Golem.You can summon golems using a variety of different blocks, including Diamond, Golden, Debris, Librarian, Leaves, and many more. You can summon golems of nearly all building blocks.

Tinkers construct

1.18.21.18.11.181.16.51.16.3+ 16

Tinkers Construct is a mod that adds a new progression system into the game and many new progression tiers of Minecraft tools and weapons. The mod offers a unique experience by creating custom and special tools from parts. The player can make those parts from different materials. Every material that can be used for crafting now has unique effects. Those effects vary from the durability of the finished tool to the effects which completely change how the tool works. The ability to combine multiple parts for your tools creates almost infinite possibilities. Every tool then can be upgraded to get similar effects like enchants from vanilla Minecraft. The mod offers a custom-created way of crafting those items. Your first steps will require you to create the first patterns, which allow the creation of basic and limited tools. The next milestone is the creation of a huge multi-block structure called smeltery. You can use it for smelting metallic ores into more advanced metal parts with better durability and many other effects. The mod offers a lot of customization in the config file and a lot of integration into other mods, which adds even more replayability and uniqueness.  Note: Mod requires Mantle to work!

Shatter

1.16.51.16.41.16.31.16.21.16.1+ 7

Shatter is a mod for Minecraft which has a creative Death Animation when you kill a mob you get a slow animation of the mob fading out and floating and their body parts separating. The effects are quite different on each mob. The Blaze seems to have very good animation, but others such as the Zombie horse also have good animation. The mod is client-side only which means that you can play with it on a server without the mod installed and still get the effects (In fact it warns you if you try to run it on a server.). The mod is also compatible with OptiFine, putting it ahead of many other rendering mods which do not work with Optifine. The mod still works even if a mob is killed by another mob, the animation will still show up. The drops show up as normal and the mob just fades away and does not affect the game in any way that could make it incompatible with servers the mod also works on players meaning you can see your enemies fade away after they die while playing on a server (though the other players will not have the same animation and it is cosmetic only). This mod is for MC Forge 1.16.5 and requires iChunUtil (Don’t let that scare you away though, lots of other great mods use it). The animations do seem to have some drawbacks though, the animations are a little basic, sometimes the fading mob will just get pushed back and fade away with little moving of their body parts, and in general, the animation does not do much unless you like the animation a lot. The animation works on some modded mobs, but not all, such as it did not work on Chaos Awakens or Lycanites, and the mobs from these mods just instantly disappeared with not even the original vanilla death animation. It is likely mods need to manually integrate themselves with this mod. In the vanilla game, not all mobs seem to be fully affected by the animation (and just use the normal death animation), and baby mobs and bosses require you to enable the animations for them in the config, or else they also use the normal death animation. The death animation can also be a bit of a distraction in some cases. But if you like the death animation and want to play on 1.16.5 Forge it may be a good choice, especially if you have a ghost server. They also have 1.16.1, 1.15.2, 1.12.2, 1.10.2, 1.8, 1.7.x, and 1.6.4 versions if you want to play on older versions. This is a very good lightweight vanilla+ mod. The animations are quite similar to those in the Morph mod and the 2 mods are made by the same person, and Shatter has integration with the Morph Mod. If you get this mod you would probably also want to check out a few of ohaiiChun’s other mods, as they have lots of other good vanilla plus mods to enhance your game.
