Survivalist by gigaherz

Spicing up the early game, without making it overly tedious.


Everything listed below can be turned off on the config file:

  • Sticks are no longer craftable from planks, you get them from leaves and saplings.
  • Mining stone drops rocks (4) instead of cobble. In order to craft cobblestone, you’ll need clay.
    • Andesite, Diorite and Granite drop rocks, too.
    • The corresponding blocks are crafted by surrounding a ball of clay with 8 rocks.
    • Any 4 will turn into gravel, which can be crafted again into 4 generic rocks. All the cobblestone!
  • Mining iron/gold now drops ore rocks (2..4), which smelt for one nugget each.
  • Tools and armor drop one of their crafting components.
    • Enchant tools with Scraping I/II/III to increase the chances it’s the GOOD item.
    • Enchant armor with Scraping I/II/III to increase the chances it’s two instead.
  • Drying rack
    • Turn meat into jerky: not too nutritive, but highly saturating.
    • Turn leather (which really, should be called hide), into tanned leather, for improved armour.
  • Craft chainmail pieces with iron nuggets in a diamond shape, then use these diamond pieces to craft chainmail armor!
  • Torches can set things on fire! But they have a rather high chance of breaking in the process.
