This page is a breakdown of the mods, some details, and some specific notes for  my server.  These are in no real order, but I will try to keep them making sense.

Here are some screenshots of SOME of the mods items and blocks.  After that is a breakdown of the items.  Sadly one of the mods has no real manual, so I will do some notes up over time, so keep checking this page for more details.

THE MODS

MODS THAT DO STUFF;
but don’t add directly in game, or are required for other mods to function (libraries etc.)

Commonly Known As: NA

Type: Library file

Required: Required

Direct Link: https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/autoreglib

This is the library file required for Quark (see below).

Type: Core Enhancement

Required: Required

Direct Link: https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/jei/files/all?filter-game-version=1738749986%3A64806

“JEI is an item and recipe viewing mod for Minecraft, built from the ground up for stability and performance.” It allows you to see most recipes for items in game.

Those with Quark are not visible in it, for now, but you can get them in any crafting table interface, as all recipes are unlocked to everyone. The following screenshot has both JEI; and an example of the other items in a crafting table:

It is also good to note that there are 17 pages of 20 for a search on slabs, and some of those are from biomes’o’plenty (see below) so the server has a total of at least 350 different slabs, as well as blocks where the lines are vertical not horizontal.

Commonly Known As: NA

Type: Server file

Required: NOT Required

Direct Link: https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/jei/files/all?filter-game-version=1738749986%3A64806

“Morpheus is a server-only mod that adds sleep voting to a forge based server. When a player sleeps, all other players in the same dimension are notified so it is easier to coordinate. Also, you can configure a ratio of players that are required to make it morning (default 50%) messages can be customised in the config and alerts can be turned off if needed.”

I have included this is in the mod pack for anyone wishing to run a similar server, this will just need to be placed in the server mods folder like normal for Forge.

Commonly Known As: OptiFine

Type: Enhancement

Required: NOT Required

Direct Link: https://optifine.net/downloads

“OptiFine HD 1.14.4/1.12.2 (FPS Boost, Shaders) is a mod that helps you to adjust Minecraft effectively. It makes Minecraft run more smoothly and use less resources.”

This is included just to allow you to have better graphics and use shaders etc. If you don’t want to run these, then it’s all good.

Commonly Known As: NA

Type: Library

Required: Required

Direct Link: https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/u-team-core

“Open-Source API and library for U-Team’s mods.” Used for the Useful Railroads mod (see below).

 

MODS THAT ADD CORE FUNCTIONALITY;
and some in game blocks and entities or enhance options for already game items.

Commonly Known As: VoxelMap

Type: Mapping

Required: NOT Required

Direct Link: https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/voxelmap

“VoxelMap is a minimap and worldmap mod that makes a great effort to be accurate to the colors you see in the world (and your resource pack). Display your surroundings, or view the entire (explored) world.

It has useful functionality like per-dimension waypoints, mob icons, teleport to waypoint (if the player has permission), and nether mapping. Optional chunk grid and biome overlay (with biome labels in full screen mode)” While this is in the pack, it is not a requirement. I do have it on the server so that co-ordinates are remembered. This can be very useful for returning to locations of deaths to get back gear.

Commonly Known As: Neat

Type: Enhancement

Required: NOT Required

Direct Link: https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/neat

“Neat is a mod that adds Unit Frames to the top of every entity.”

This just adds a small amount of detail to the game, with a small status panel over mobs.

Image from https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/neat page for the mod.

Commonly Known As: Paintings++

Type: Enhancement

Required: NOT Required

Direct Link: https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/paintings

“Paintings++ was made long ago in legacy of the then discontinued MorePaintings mod.

The main goal for Paintings++ has always been the addition of as much Paintings to the game as we could ! 1.14.4 allows for just that.”

This adds a lot of more paintings to be used, and more accurately than vanilaa. I am interested because of the nature of this mod to have more art in it, so use the comments section below to leave suggestions. Porn, or advertising will just get deleted, links to imgur, or facebook are fine, and direct links, but links that are in any way ambiguous will be removed.

Commonly Known As: Quark

Type: Core Enhancement

Required: Required

Direct Link: https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/quark

Creator Website: https://quark.vazkii.net/

“Quark is a mod for Minecraft Java Edition, aiming to enhance the base game, using a very simple motto: Anything added to Quark could also be added to the default game without compromising its gameplay style. The name of the mod derives from this focus on small, simple change: Like quarks, each individual feature is small, but they build into a larger whole.”

This is the litmus for this pack. If THIS mod gets updated to 1.15, then this server will too, and the other mods will be re-added once they are.

This single mod is a must have on ANY game, let alone a fully modded server. Here is a link to a video series (10 or so episodes) going over the details, and there are some nutso ones. So good, almost one might dare say even … perfect.

Below is a video, the first in a series, on the items, and changes in the mod, and is worth a good watch when you have time.

Commonly Known As: Quick Homes

Type: Core Enhancement

Required: Required

Direct Link: https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/quickhomes

“QuickHomes is extremely simple.

Use /sethome to set your home.

Use /home to go to your home.”

Basically it lets you set a home location, so you can quickly and easily teleport home. This is available to everyone.

Commonly Known As: Tree Choppin [FORGE]

Type: Enhancement

Required: Required

Direct Link: https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/tree-choppin

“Tree Choppin allows you to chop down a whole tree at once. The only thing you need to do is break the bottom block with an axe.”

It uses the same amount of durability as it would have taken to harvest the tree, and works from the block up to determine if you can harvest it based on remaining durability. It takes a little longer than normal to chop the tree down, however it is all over faster than vanilla, and all the leaves and drops happen at once, rather than having to wait.

The page for this mod has gone, so I have little info on it other than it just gives all the villagers names. 

 

MODS THAT MOSTLY ADD TO THE SERVER;
adding a majority of new items to the game.

Commonly Known As: Biomes’O’Plenty

“Biomes O’ Plenty is an expansive biome mod for Minecraft that adds a slew of new, unique biomes to the Overworld, Nether, and coming soon, the End! To go along with the new biomes, it adds new plants, flowers, trees, building blocks, and much more!”

This just adds a MASSIVE amount of new biomes in all levels of the game world (overworld, nether etc), mixed in with things like Quark (see above) it adds a whole new dimension to exploring, especially in caves and the nether. Almost everything in this mod is aesthetic.

See the gallery at the top of this page for some images of what it contains.

“Cosmetic Beds Mod 1.14.4/1.12.2 allows players to add banner patterns to their beds, kind of like what they can already do with shields. This is done simply by crafting a bed with the desired banner.”

I just thought this looked cool, themed bedrooms!  Check the image below, or click the link above for more.

“This is a small mod that adds some extra button and button-related blocks to Minecraft. Such blocks include panel-sized buttons, illuminated toggle buttons, and some new detector tracks. Most of the blocks are meant to help ease station design on my server, and some are more for fun.”

Lit up on / off buttons. On means constant redstone output. Just so cool. Oh, and colors…

“Just Mob Heads Mod 1.14.4/1.12.2 is a minimalistic mod that adds a configurable chance for mobs to drop their head on death.”

Commonly Known As: Metal Barrels

Type: Enhancement

Required: Required

Direct Link: https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/metal-barrels

“This mod adds additional barrels to the game that can store more items.

They function like their vanilla counterparts in that they can be opened with a solid block on top and don’t cause any fps issues in large numbers unlike chests.”

Use these over chests for large storage as it helps minimize storage lag.

Commonly Known As: MrCrayfish’s Furniture Mod

Type: Enhancement

Required: Required

Direct Link: https://mrcrayfish.com/mods?id=cfm

“This mod adds in what Minecraft has been missing for years, furniture! It includes over 40 unique pieces of furniture to decorate your bedroom, kitchen, living room and even your garden! Turn your house into the dream house you have never been able to have until now.”

This is why I like this mod, that, and the chairs actually work, you can sit at them. Mix this with the candles from Quark (see above) and you have some very interesting options. Some of the equipment works as it loooks as well.

Commonly Known As: MrCrayfish’s Furniture Mod

“…..”

This mod allows you to make a lot of access to your stored items, as well as sorting very easy to manage, through one interface you can access nearly everything, if it’s connected to the network. This can be combined with regular systems like item sorters, as well as the new pipes in Quark (see above) to all you a LOT of excellent storage options.

Commonly Known As: Simple Trophies Mod

Type: Enhancement

Required: Required

Direct Link: http://www.9minecraft.net/simple-trophies-mod/

“Simple Trophies Mod 1.14.4/1.12.2 adds one block trophies to Minecraft. The accent color, name, and rotating item they display are fully customizable by your modpack author or server operator. ”

This adds a trophy to disply things on, once on them however, they are there as a trophy so be careful. We will have them for offer to buy at some point in the future, however trophies will also be given out to members on the server for certain things, more to be done though for that to start.

Commonly Known As: Simple Trophies Mod Type: Enhancement Required: Required Direct Link: https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/useful-railroads

“Who dont want to travel fast in minecraft. I plan on many more rails, but there are only 3 yet.”

This adds a couple of extra rails, one a high speed, and the most useful, and reason FOR this in the pack, an intersection piece. There are a couple of other rails, but that’s the main reason.

Check the gallery at the top of this page for a screenshot of all the items.

Commonly Known As: Simple Trophies Mod

Type: Enhancement

“Features:

  • new Weapons (Oak Sword, Birch Sword,….)
  • a XP/Level System which increases Attack Damage and Attack Speed
  • a Rarity System which increases Durability and Enchantability”

This adds an element of more diversity with weapons and with the new enchanting system with Quark (see videos above in Quark section), makes for some cool options. Don’t forget the runes from Quark to add to it more!
