Chocolate Quest Repoured (CQR) is a recreated version of the Chocolate Quest Mod (Commonly known as the Better Dungeons Mod). Chocolate Quest was a popular mod going back to the Beta days of Minecraft until it had rough development and a largely considered incomplete rewrite in 1.7.x, largely skipped 1.8.x, cancelled 1.9.x, and has not seen a version since. Chocolate Quest added many fantastic dungeons and bosses with some of the most unique abilities in all of Minecraft modding. Chocolate Quest Repoured builds on many of these ideas and updates them.
Chocolate Quest Repoured has elements of the 1.6.4 and 1.7.x versions of Chocolate Quest, plus unique additions and improvements. Many of the textures are highly inspired but different, but much closer to the original than many other legacy mod recreations. Many of the best parts, such as the Structure Auto generators, Super Tool (Creative Only), and customisable mobs, are still there and sometimes have been updated.
One of the best parts of Chocolate Quest was the ability to right-click a humanoid or similar-shaped mob and add custom gear in creative mode; CQR improved this. Now, if you right-click a mob from CQR in creative mode, it shows a dialogue with all the slots you can add gear to, this could take more time if you just wanted to add 1 item, but it is generally much easier to use and more descriptive. You can give the mobs whatever gear you wish, potions, shields, and other stuff, which is excellent for mob battles.
One thing that is not good is the amount of mobs is inflated by having variants with different sets of gear. There are leather versions of mobs and diamond versions; this is unneeded because of the ability to swap the gear in creative mode easily, but it is somewhat reminiscent of what spawns in (in dungeons, it is not uncommon to see these different variants spawn). The creative tabs are also different from the original; instead of 2 tabs, it's divided into many more tabs, each serving different purposes.
Many of the mobs, though, are unique from each other. They have special abilities like how the pirate captain can turn invisible, but his weapon often does not, and how many have staffs and the ability to summon minions.
CQR, like the original CQ/Better Dungeons, is one of the best dungeon mods ever. They have deep, complex buildings with many layers to explore, lots of loot to collect, mobs and bosses to fight, libraries, wool, paintings, and many other decorations. You could spend hours looking through them.
The recreation has flaws; however, in some cases, the different textures may throw you off or not be as good for someone used to the older textures. They do a better job of recreating them than most recreation projects. However, it still may throw a few people off, especially considering many of the icons are entirely different, such as the spawn items are often different, as are the structure generators (which are 3D visualisations rather than 2D ones like the original). The recreation is also missing a lot from the original mod, such as many of the mobs and structures in the original are not in the squeal, such as the Ice Bull from the 1.6.4 version.
Despite all the missing content, it is still one of the best mods in Minecraft past 1.7.10. It is primarily focussing on 1.12.2 and won't port to other versions until the 1.12.2 version is feature complete. It will take a while to complete; they plan to have single versions for newer versions of Minecraft, like 1.16.5, but they will only be supported short-term, and it will be a while until the mod moves past 1.12.2 and completes itself. CQR is one of the most extensive mods still developing for 1.12.2 (which continues to be a sizeable modding version).
Chocolatin, the original creator of Chocolate Quest, does not appear to be related to this recreation.
The mod requires GeckoLib and Reach Fix, and the author will make fun of you if you try to get support without these two mods installed. Der Toaster, the creator of CQR, is also a significant contributor to GeckoLib, and CQR is one of the mods advertised by GeckoLib.
