It's important to keep in mind that most of the content of this mod is decorative and purely here to make your world feel more interesting and alive, so if you're looking for shiny armors and weapons, you may want to try something else.This is a Forge mod and Download links are given below.

Oil has earned a negative reputation for its dangerous effects on the world, but using it to fuel your factory in Minecraft is perfectly safe!Immersive Petroleum is an addon for Immersive Engineering that focuses on oil processing mechanics and also the process of acquiring it. It's not an easy to use mod, that's for sure. To get started, make sure to have the Engineer's Manual and plenty of steel. Build the Seismic Survey Tool and shove a Buckshot Cartridge inside of it, it'll quickly give you a map with black and white spots, the white ones being where you'll usually find the fluids you want. Go towards them and use the machine again, if it all worked correctly, build a Derrick multiblock right there and bring tons of pipes, water and liquid concrete to it, it'll start drilling into the earth to get that sweet black gold for you.After you've done this, you're ready to get started with the actual content of the mod; Gasoline powered Portable Generators, motorboats, and a few useful blocks along with tons of other machines that are used to process and take advantage of this oil. Refer to the book to understand everything else.
Useful, simple to use and good looking, Engineer's Decor is an addon to Immersive Engineering that adds tons of decorative blocks and a few functional machines to the game.New bricks, new concrete variations, more slabs, and even a roof style block group. There's also tables, stools, window stills and modern metallic fencing. In terms of functional machinery, a new furnace type that can turn cobblestone and other rocky blocks into lava has been added, along with a machine that can freeze water into ice.Solar panels, machines that cut trees, and many other useful contraptions are also part of the mod, some can be powered optionally to make them faster, while others require power to run at all times.
A timeless classic, Immersive Engineering is a tech-industry mod that adds many multiblock machines, power sources, animated windmills and waterwheels and awesome weapons like the Railgun and the Revolver.It's a complex and difficult mod to understand and work with, but the challenge only makes it all the more interesting; To get started, craft an Engineer's Manual and keep it stored in your inventory when working on the mod's contents. Then make an Engineer's Hammer and build a Coke Oven and Alloy Kiln, both made of simple materials like clay, sandstone and bricks.With a Coke Oven, you can make Coke Coal and free charcoal out of logs. It's slow, but effective, be sure to make multiple. You'll also get Creosote Oil as a byproduct, so be sure to store it and use it to make Treated Wood. The Silo and Tank multiblocks allow for massive storage of items and fluids respectively, make good use of them. The Metal Press is also an incredibly useful tool, allowing you to make plates, cables and many more items in a cheaper and more effective way. You can connect it to conveyor belt lines to move items around automatically.Having an array of Blast Furnaces is also incredibly important, as the best content this mod has to offer is gated behind Steel and you can only make it in those.
Tectonic's approach to worldgen is quite interesting; it makes everything look quite a lot bigger and more imposing than in vanilla, with overall larger rivers, larger mountains and more interesting fields for plains style biomes, while still keeping things walkable and not overdoing anything. Building and exploring are still not too much of a hassle even with all the new terrain generation going on.It's difficult to describe the contents of a worldgen mod, so I left a whole bunch of pictures of all sorts of biomes to showcase it better. You may also notice that vanilla trees have been reworked to have more interesting shapes, which helps with the atmosphere and may even give you a little push to make a tree house base.Tectonic has a patch to make it compatible with Terralith, in case you'd like to mix both.
Light and straight to the point, this mod adds a ring that can be used to access your ender chest from a distance.This item is originally from the Gobber 2 mod, but the author has made a bunch of micromods that adds the multiple rings from Gobber 2 as standalone items for people who only want those specific ones.
Welcome to the space odyssey of your dreams! With Ad Astra, your world will be gifted with the means required to explore the deepest reaches of space and maybe even conquer them!To get started, be sure to craft the mod's manual and check its contents out, as it will give you some general tips regarding its progression and mechanics. Done? Good, now we can get started with the mod's actual contents.First of all, you'll want to acquire a Coal Generator and the Compressor, machines that you will use to make plates. Plates are a vital component in Ad Astra and you should get used to making tons of them. Cabling is made out of steel, which can be crafted by smelting Iron ingots.You will also need to make a machine that turns water into oxygen and another one that turns Oil, a fluid that can be found in the ocean, into Fuel. It is worth mentioning that fuel is NOT renewable and should be used with care.To go to the moon, the first cellestial body you can explore, you'll have to craft a landing pad and a rocket, which is made in the NASA workbench crafting station. Alongside that, please be sure to craft a Space Suit.It'll be expensive, and each trip will take tons of fuel, but the Lunar depths are the only place in which you can find Desh Ore, a mineral that is critical to this mod's progression. Of course, setting up a moon base is no easy feat, as it's an airless planet. You can actually mitigate this problem by setting up an oxygen production system with the Oxygen Distributor machine.
A simple yet incredibly well executed mod, Creeper Overhaul perfectly replicates the feeling of the game's biomes with a new type of creeper for each one.From the fluffy snowy Creeper to the camouflaged jungle one, every single one of them is beautifully sprited and modeled, to the point of feeling like content that should've been in the game from the start. There isn't much content besides the visuals, but it's worth nothing that some of them are passive and that they all have great support with shaderpacks or emissive textures when exploding.
Handcrafted is one of the best furniture mods I've had the pleasure to play with. The furniture it adds to the game is extremely well polished and the variety is just right, without being bloated but still having enough content to assist a lot when building your base.It adds chairs, tables, sofas, a special fancier variant of beds, countertops, and even cushions. There's a furniture set for every wood type and all of them are beautifully well integrated within their respective wood color palette. Not only that, but you can also apply special cloths to many of the decorations of the mod to give them some extra color. You'll also find some really nice looking paintings in this mod, and some statues and trophies based on the mobs of the game, most of which are can be crafted quite easily.To get started crafting your own furniture, you will need a Stonecutter. Throw a piece of wood on top of it to get Boards that you can use to craft most of the furniture of the mod.Handcrafted brings a new type of Bookshelf to the game too, that can house bottles, books, cobwebs and the plates, cups, etc. this mod adds. Yes, you can craft cups, plates and a set of both if you want, of multiple materials including wood and terracotta.
Good Ending is a wonderful Vanilla Style mod that adds a whole lot of tweaks to vanilla biomes, a few new props that will appear on your world(such as boulders of all stone types), and blocks to come with that. It also brings a few new mobs to the table, such as Woodpeckers, swarms of Fireflies and the Marsh swamp monster. Fireflies can be used to make lanterns or transported with bottles to be placed wherever you want, and the Marsh is actually a scared-y little creature that allows you to coat your weaponry in potion effects.Besides the new mobs, this mod also adds multiple new forms of existing trees that grow when you plant their saplings on specific blocks, like the comforting yet somewhat exotic Muddy Oak Tree and its planks, stairs, etc. Speaking of wood sets, Good Ending also adds Cypress Trees, which have orange planks and a white bark. Lilypads have been changed to not break when you row your boat through them, and multiple new forms of them have also been added, having flowers of different colors. Cattails and all sorts of colored flower patches will also appear in your world.
Mine Cells is a promising Fabric mod that aims to add enemies, weapons and decorative blocks from the Action Roguelite Dead Cells to Minecraft. You can access the new dimension in which most of the mod's contents are located by finding a specific portal in the wild, which can be recognized for its circular shape. If you haven't found diamonds before approaching it, it won't activate, so be sure to do some vanilla progression before you get started; You'll need it for the mobs and boss you'll find there. The Prison dimension / structure has multiple mobs to fight, most of which have their own gimmicks that may put your abilities to the test. Bringing armor and a shield is highly recommended. Across the ruined halls of this place, you will find barrels with all sorts of useful loot and most of the new weapons, including the classic Blood Sword from the game and Health Flasks.Impressively enough, the mod also features elevators that are used to traverse some of the areas of the map, and a new boss that can be found deep inside the prison; Conjunctivius. She has multiple special moves that need to be learned, lots of health and deals enormous amounts of damage even with netherite armor.
