Please note: Versions 0.0.9 and above are NOT compatible with previous versions.

Also! The Dimension of The Crystallia is finally ready! It's still in an Alpha state, but for now I can safely say, travel to it, go my nuggets, be free!

It's been a rough day. You sit down, and take a break from all the adventuring.

Out of the corner of your eye, you notice... blue? A bright, vibrant blue leaf comes gently floating in your direction. Curious, you decide that that break you took wasn't that important, and begin walking in the direction that the leaf came from.
Soon enough, you realize you are in a different world. The grass is purple, the trees have a dark purple bark, and mysterious blue flesh. There's creatures which before were unimaginable wandering around you.

Welcome to The Crystallia.

The Crystallia is a work in progress mod based off my love for crystals and exploration, with updates coming at a sporadic rate, I am constantly making changes and updating things.

Please note: This is my first ever mod, no joke! If you have any tips for modmaking or general feedback for this mod I'd love to hear them!

This mod currently includes:

  • 7 types of gemstones (Crystalli, Eventidium, Aurorium, Midnite, Luminite, Umbrium, and Evencrystium)

    • Listed in terms of tier, with crystalli being the weakest (Though still tougher than diamond)

  • New biomes! (Obsidian Forest, Crystalli Grove, Eventide Orchard, Midnight Woods, Luminous Acres, Aurora Meadow, and Dark Umbral Woods)

  • A new fruit, as well as crystal variety; the Camquat (inside joke present, but it is a fruit nonetheless)

  • Pretty looking wood, all in different colors (Purple, Gray, Blue, Fuschia, Black, Creamy Yellow, and Light Green)

  • Tools and Armor (Made with love and gemstones)

  • Flowers to make your life prettier. (10 varieties)

  • Ability to craft vanilla items with modded wood varieties (Crafting Tables, Chests, and sticks currently)

  • A new dimension, The Crystallia; a once peaceful world turned hostile, despite the light that shines.

    • The dimension is now accessible!

  • Fusion Crafting (Can currently only craft Evencrystium; will add more later)

  • New and better trees to replace the vanilla looking ones in each biome.

  • New and fun mobs! (3 currently)

  • Mushrooms....? They're... glowing..


Planned Features:

  • Another hellish dimension, The Umbris.

  • More crystal-themed biomes (The Crystal Tundra)

  • Boss Mobs

  • More items you can make through the altar.

  • A prettier GUI for the Altar, promise!

  • Hmmmmmmmm are more new biomes coming to The Dimension of Crystallia? I think so.

  • Is that... a Castle?!?!?! WHOA WAIT WHATS THAT IN THE CASTLE AHHHHHH----

Here's images of some if the items and blocks!

Items/ToolsArmor Sets

The PortalThe Altar


To get started, you'll first want to get yourself a diamond tool, a pickaxe is preferred.

Traverse the lands until you find an Obsidian forest; this forest has trees as hard as obsidian, if it wasn't clear by it's name.

Cut down a tree or two, or three, or the entire forest. Up to you!

Craft the logs into obsidian sticks, just as you would normal sticks.

Now you have to find Crystalli. This gem spawns below a certain y-value (But why would I tell you? It ruins the adventure!)

Mine the Crystalli, I hope you have a diamond pickaxe or a pick of the same harvest level (aka one that can mine obsidian). You also will need a few diamonds to make your first set of armor and tools.

And now you're set! I recommend downloading JEI to look at all the available recipes!


This mod pairs well with AOCAWOL's mod,Oh the Biomes You'll Go! If you're planning on wanting more biomes to go along with The Crystallia's, then this is the mod for you!

I personally recommend it over Biomes O' Plenty.

And that's all for now. I really do hope I did alright for my first mod. I will do my best to fix any problems and balance the mod, but for now, it is what it is.

Also! This mod works fine on my laptop, but please if it is giving anyone of you who downloads it has issues let me know asap!

This mod is really good! I really like the description and the textures, especially the ones of the armor! I hope it will win MOTW soon! :D

not sure if its just me, but that multicoloured crystal looks EXACTLY like the Starbound Prism Shard.

Might just be you, I haven't had anyone else state this on here or curse. I will admit that the crystalli texture I created looks very similar to the this prism shard, however I can assure you it isn't. All textures in this mod were either made by me or were edited from Minecraft's vanilla textures... although if it would make you feel better I can completely re-texture crystalli.
(also how is Starbound? I've never played it :c)

Very good mod! I have an idea (just to make the mod "sound" a bit cooler [no, I'm not suggesting changing the name]). What if the swords had names according their materials? I know they already do, but I mean Terraria-style names, kind of "fantastic." Here's some ideas:
Crystalli Sword --> Kingsblade (material of kings)
Aurorium Sword --> Ensis Borealis (ensis is Latin for sword)
Eventidium Sword --> Twilight Fang
Umbrium Sword --> Shadow Keeper
Midnight Sword --> Night's Edge (Terraria name)
Luminous Sword --> Daybreaker
