Thanks for checking out my forum!
I'm working on a Vanilla+ style mod built for 1.17, but if its done before MCreator makes it there, I'll release it early.
This mod is meant to be an expansion to 1.17 with some of the things I felt 1.17 lacked. For me, 1.17 so far is, making the world prettier, and look better. Giving a want to find what is within this new world. However, there's nothing actually hidden in there. Just Amethyst Geodes, which are basically worthless, and Lush Caves, which are found above ground.
This mod is going to serve to give something to look for and something to find! Taking what 1.17 gave us, and expanding on it! If you'd like to pitch some ideas, I will obviously credit you, even if I rework the idea to fit the mod better. However I hope to hear all of your opinions on this!
Currently the only new blocks planned are:
This block is only found covering Buried Cities. About 1 in 3 Buried Cities are covered in Ash. This block has gravity, so digging through it can be quite difficult, luckily its faster than even sand to mine! Volcanic Ash can also be combined with water to make Clay as seen here:
Mineral Deposits are a structure, with 1-2 Mineral Deposit ores within. Mineral Deposits are ONLY found within Goblin Villages. And are in their own room within "Active" Mines! However, taking from it may lead to an angry surprise!
Shown above is Speckled Red Wool. This is made by combining the block with 1 Glowing Paste, This is obtained Glow Worms! A new mob being introduced in this mod.
M A N Y Blocks will come with speckled variants. This should be very helpful for building when you need light sources but don't want torches or glowstone breaking up the visual look!

I'm excited to hear your thoughts below!
Just finished modeling this lil guy! Theres gonna be a few skins these guys can have.
Woa that looks cool! I'm pretty excited actually!
Thanks! I was kinda debating dropping this mod cause there didnt seem to be much interest, but im glad you like it! I'll see if i can work on the mod i think would be cooler/more exciting while im working on this. I'll probably postpone this mod until we get 1.18 MCreator.
Sounds like a cool mod!
Nice concept of "building friendly" blocks emitting light. 1.17 helped a lot adding moss carpets, but there's still a lot to improve in that terms. As for the rest, I'm not sure what to expect, as it seems like there's only small showcase here and there's yet lots features. I really like that green buddy, so cute :D
And small suggestion - don't drop mod from small feedback! I found out that it's really random whether good mod/idea have a lot of feedback or not. And it's a shame when dev drops good mod only because of lack of feedback, which can be just bad timing or something like that.
yeah i decided to pause it til 1.18 tho.
