Welcome to Modular Expansion, a collection of little mods to improve the game!

These additions were planned to be included in RaolCraft Omega, however, since they are little indipendent additions I decided to make a separate download for them.

This collection is called "modular" because there are different mods and you can choose what to use.

It is called "expansion" because every mod is an expansion to a Minecraft aspect.

I actually made these mods because my main mod, RaolCraft Omega, is incompatible with most mods due to its big content, so I decided to make a few little mods that should be compatible with everything (including RaolCraft).

Most of these mods should make RaolCraft easier: for example, the End Expansion makes the trip to the End easier, but not everyone wants an easier game, so I decided to make it optional.

I won't update frequently these mods because they are meant to be little. Instead, I will make more of them (and update RaolCraft Omega).

Also, the mods are very little because most of the ideas I have need compatibility with RaolCraft stuff (If for example, I made a food mod that added every food of RaolCraft and flour, and I also made a machines mod, how would you craft flour if it requires the Pulverizer from another mod? That's why RaolCraft Omega is so big, for crafting compatibility).

You can call the mods "modules".

At the moment there are 5 modules: End, Nether, Easy Ores, Quiver and Caves and more are coming soon.

The modules are divided in waves. The first wave is complete (its modules are End, Nether, Easy Ores and Quiver), second one has just a module at the moment (Caves). To download the first wave's module, download the zip file, extract it and choose which modules you want.

 

What do the modules add:


Wave 1:

End Expansion:

This mod adds a few new ways to gain Enderpearls as well as new things to craft after that you have been to the End.

 

+The Enderturtle

A mob with custom 3d model that spawns in most biomes, including the nether (but not including the End). It is neutral, it has a lot of life, it does high damage and it is very slow, but it becomes faster when attacked. It also has a few armor points. It is very rare and drops a lot of Ender Pearls. Since it's neutral and very powerful, I recommend fighting it only when you have some good weapons.

+The Enderzombie

Another mob like the Enderturtle, however this is more common and less powerful and can be spot very easily in the Nether. Drops Rotten Flesh, Ender Fragments and (sometimes) Ender Pearls.

+Ender Glass

A decorative transparent block. When broken it drops itself instead of nothing. It can be crafted by surrounding a Popped Chorus Fruit with Glass.

+Ender Lantern

A decorative block. Emits a lot of light (15).

+Ender Fragment

Put 4 of these in a crafting table and you will get an Ender Pearl.

+Chorus Stew

When eaten, it provides 10 food points (5 drumsticks). It causes 3 seconds of nausea and 6 of haste. It can be crafted by combining a bowl and 3 Chorus Fruits in a crafting table.

 

Easy Ores:

This is an extremely little mod adding 3 ores. It was intended to be used for modpacks centered on mining, but the ores are quite rare so they aren't too unbalanced.

+Bone Ore

This one is quite "common". Requires a Stone Pickaxe or better to mine it. Drops a bone.

+Slimy Ore

Spawns in large chunks very deep underground. Usually found under the lava. Requires an Iron Pickaxe or better to mine it. Drops a slimeball.

+Enderpearl Ore

Extremely rare. Requires a Diamond Pickaxe (or better, if you have a mod that adds powerful pickaxes) to mine it. Drops an Enderpearl.

 

Nether Expansion:

This module adds some features to make the Nether more fun and rewarding.

 

+Ghostly Pig

Spawns in the Nether. It's neutral. It's resistant to fire. Drops Raw Spectral Porkchops when killed. It's the only animal food source in the Nether (except chickens of chicken jockeys, but they are quite rare).

+Nether Cow

Spawns in the nether. It's resistant to fire. Can be miked. Makes Nether Wart Soup too if right-clicked with a bowl in hand. Drops Nether Wart when killed.

+Dragon Chicken

Spawns in the Nether. It is resistant to fire. It doesn't lay eggs, it only rarely lays fire charges. Can be breed using Nether Wart. It follows you if you hold Nether Wart. It drops feathers when killed.

+Chiseled Nether Bricks, Nether Pillar

Decorative blocks. Crafted like Chiseled Quartz and Quartz Pillar.

+Nether Wart Soup

Only heals 2 food points (1 drumstick). Can be crafted with a bowl and 2 Nether Warts.

+Ghostly Porkchop

Heals 4 food points. Makes you glow.

+Cooked Ghostly Porkchop

Heals 8 food points. Makes you glow.

 

Quiver:

This is another extremely little mod that only adds an item that stores arrows, the Quiver. It works in a similar way to Raolcraft Omega's Tin Cans.

+Pile of Arrows

Combine 9 arrows in a crafting table and you get this. It can be turned back to arrows by simply putting it in a crafting grid. It is a bad arrow storage because it can stack only up to 7.

+Quiver

The main item of the mod. Craft it using leather in a cauldron-like shape. To fill it, surround it with 7 piles of arrows and an arrow. Right-click it while it's filled to get the arrows back (gives 64 arrows). Stacks up to 16. (You will obviously also get the empty quiver back.


Wave 2:

Caves Expansion:

Are you waiting for the Cave update? Well, this mod won't be the cave update but will make mining a bit less boring. I will try to not add just some "new ores" (there are already many mods for that, including RaolCraft Omega) but some features that make caves more exciting without being useless or overshadowing vanilla minecraft.

+New Dungeons

+Glowing Crystal Block

Spawns in un uncommon large patches. Requires a Iron Pickaxe or better to be mined. Drops 4 Glowing Crystals.

+Glowing Crystal

+Glowing Crystal Bricks

+Glowing Crystal Lantern

+Ancient Sword

Can be found in some dungeons.

+Lucent Pickaxe

Can be found in some dungeons. Has little durability, but if it is enough damaged and you have a Glowing Crystal in your inventory, it will use that Glowing Crystal to repair itself.

+Depths Spider

An hostile spider that spawns in some dungeons. Its poison makes you slow and tired.

+Cave Mummy

An hostile monster that spawns in dungeons in deserts.

What do you find hard/boring in RaolCraft?
At the moment the only boring thing I found was going to the End, because the End isn't endgame with RaolCraft but you still need to kill all these rare Endermen to craft Ender Eyes.
So I think that now I am going to update RaolCraft Omega.
If, after an update, I think there is a vanilla resource that isn't enough, I will add a mod to make it easier to find, just like I did with Enderpearls.

I think today I will release 2 modules: Easy Ores and Nether

The nether mod was done, but I had a few issues with Mcreator and I needed to export/import the mod and I lost a lot of time. I will release it tomorrow (And maybe I will also add a new monster
