Vanilla Tweaks is a mod that overhauls the Vanilla Minecraft content and adds new content to it. It’s basically a mod that makes your Vanilla Minecraft experience even more fun than it was before. It changes the most annoying elements in Vanilla Minecraft and fixes technical issues with blocks, items and biomes/plants/trees/mobs.
It includes a lot of QoL improvements, additional content and much more. You can find articles about the features here: Category: Vanilla Tweaks on the Minecraft-Resource.com website. Vanilla Tweaks is originally made by iChun , but now I’m developing this mod as well together with him.
How to install vanilla tweaks
Vanilla Tweaks is installed the same way as any other Forge mod. You can find out how to install this mod here: How to install forge mods on the Minecraft-Resource.com website. Also you need to download and install Minecraft Forge API . Just follow these instructions on that page – it will guide you through the process. If you want to download the mod manually, just go to Curse or to this page at minecraft-mods.de .
As I said before – Vanilla Tweaks is originally made by iChun , but he doesn’t have time anymore for developing mods, so now me and him are working together on this project. Unfortunately his Patreon page isn’t working anymore, but there’s a new patreon page for this project on the Minecraft-Resource Patreon page . It would mean a lot to us if you could support our work here. You can also find more informations about this on the newly made Vanilla Tweaks Patreon Page .
What are the benefits of using Vanilla Tweaks
The benefits of using Vanilla Tweaks in comparison to playing without a mod, are a lot. Here’s a list which contains most of the things you get from this mod:
- Better Performance
- Bugfixes for Vanilla Bugs/Issues
- Enhanced Vanilla Biomes and Plants
- Much more efficient Tools and Armor
- More Recipes
- A new Dimension (To the Moon and Back)
- QoL improvements all over the place
- New Mobs and Items
- Tweaks on Vanilla Mechanics (Mining, Fishing, Crafting, etc.)
How to use Vanilla Tweaks
Vanilla Tweaks doesn’t have a dedicated GUI. This is because it’s basically just a mod, which adds content to Minecraft. I know iChun wanted this mod to be more like an API type of mod, but that never worked out for him. The content added by this mod can be changed trough the config file or by adding/removing things with the help of other mods. You have to play around a little bit with it, until you find out how everything works, but you’ll get used to that quickly (I think). This mod also does neither replace any existing content nor overwrite anything. I hope this clears up some things about Vanilla Tweaks.
FAQs about VanillaTweaks
Q: I can’t install this mod. It tells me it depends on forge, Minecraft Forge API , but when I click on download you link to…
A: Just go to the minecraft-mods.de page and scroll down until you see a row of buttons with different text on them. The first one should say “Minecraft Forge” and when you click on it, a download page for Minecraft Forge API will open. Download the installer from there and everything should work out fine.
Q: When I try to play with this mod installed some mods don’t work/crash my game/do some other weird stuff…
A: This is because not all mods are compatible with Minecraft Forge API . In this case I recommend you to use the ModLister (by Mumfrey) from Curse. You can find a tutorial on how to use it here: How to install mods for minecraft forge api – Tutorial on minecraft-mods.de
