Conjuring is a fantastic and incredibly in depth mod meant to capture and harness the essences of mobs and create your own spawners that you can control. To start you’ll need the enchiridion, which is a book that details everything you can do with this mod.
The Magic Doorknob mod is a simple but very fun and useful tool that comes in several tiers of knobs. They are portable doorknobs that range from wood to diamond and each one allows for a temporary door to be placed nearly anywhere. Once placed, a tunnel will be created and the length of the tunnel depends on which tier of knob you use. All you need is an ender pearl and 4 of whatever door type you want to craft.
Hexlands II is a rewrite of the original Hexlands mod but now for current Minecraft versions. It allows you to create a new world generation that separates each biome into hexagonal partitions. This makes the biomes smaller overall but makes for an otherwise interesting world to explore. You’ll first need to create a new world and select Hexlands for the world type.
Candylands is a mod that adds a new, sugary dimension that you can get to by crafting a warped pop and eating it. Once you do, you’ll be transported to a brightly colored world made entirely of sweets!
Apple Trees Revived is a remake of the original Apple Trees mod that is no longer being developed. It’s a fun way to spruce up your world with apples actively growing and ripening until they need to be plucked! The base sapling can be crafted with a standard oak sapling and an apple.
Soaring Structures 2 is a neat mod that puts randomly generated islands above your world. They aren’t incredibly common but they are fun to find in your travels and provide an extra bit of adventure trying to reach them.
This mod adds a variety of interesting landmines that can be hidden in plain sight right after arming them. Just place one down like the standard explosive landmine and shift + right-click it with an empty hand to arm it. It will then sink into the block you placed it on ready to be triggered!
The Advanced Compass mod adds a bar to the top of the screen that gives detailed information beyond simply what direction you are traveling in. It shows any entities and players as well as death waypoints and how far away they all are.
This mod adds a series of helpful tools that aim to make early game and repetitive tasks a bit easier. It comes with a sledgehammer that can mine a 3×3 space of stone blocks in one hit!
Building Wands is a neat little mod that adds 4 tiers of wands: stone, iron, diamond, and netherite. Each tier increases the amount of blocks the wands can duplicate ranging from 9 to 128. Very simply you can copy blocks you place or blocks that are already placed with a right-click of the wand. So you can take one wood plank block and right-click with the wand to build it up to the desired height.
