Let’s face it: Though we love Minecraft’s“drop you into the world” philosophy of gameplay, it becomes immediately challenging to figure out the full extent of what you are allowed to construct, forcing you to tab in and out of the game as you look at the wiki for advice. The recipe book mod puts the wiki into the game, giving you a list of every makeable object in the game and the materials will need to construct them.
It is attractively packaged within a book which your character can carry along with him as he would any of the books built into the game.
Afraid this seems like selling out? Most players can get about as far as making a pickaxe, a shovel, and maybe a sword without the extra help. But imagine the endless experimentation needed to build the more interactive possibilities. Who would chance upon the enchanting table? Who could have planned the sticky piston? Even if one has knowledge that the objects exist, it can often be difficult simply to know what ingredients will be needed, let alone the organization on the crafting table. Almost all of these recipes were divined by looking at the files within the game, and dispersed through the wiki. This mod provides you with access to those recipes without leaving the world of your game to do it. It is now even more invaluable as it includes the recipes for the best potions and provides you with the know-how to cook away.
So give this new mod designed for newcomers and seasoned alike a try, and learn all that this wonderful game has to offer.
