Welcome to Hodge-Podge III!

This mod has no theme, however its goal is to improve Minecraft gameplay by adding tons of different adventures, mobs and side-quests as well as providing a lot of new decorative blocks to have more options when building.

Unlike RaolCraft, which is an extremely lategame mod (while there are a lot of things in earlygame, you can't go to any of its dimensions before beating the Enderdragon), this mod will actually focus more on midgame, so you can explore the new features since the first days of your wold :)

This is the remake of Eonaut's original mod.

See Hodge-Podge III on curseforge!


Walking Geysers, Werewolves, Wither Bone Meal, Wither Blade and many more new features are waiting for you!

I know every feature I listed here starts with a W, but I only realized it after writing the list XD

To get started with this mod, you should find the Golden Temple, an uncommon structure that spawns in the surface of the Overworld (it won't be too hard to spot it). There you can get the igniter for the first dimension, the DarkWorld.


Yes, I know it generated in a weird way, but that was not meant to happen. It should have been mostly buried underground actually...

You can now go to the DarkWorld:


Here you can find a tower where an NPC lives, the Collector:


He likes to collect rarities, and if you give him some, he will reward you with some special items! He also gives you advices on where to find the items he wants!

Here are the other dimensions you can find in the mod right now:

The Wonderland


The Wastes


These dimensions can all be accessed very early (right after the Nether) and the items you can get from exploring them include:

  • Arcane Bricks, some very special blocks that can be placed unlimited times and be broken almost instantly (without dropping anything - like creative mode!)

  • Aurora Helmet, an armor piece which turns you into a walking light source (haven't tested it with armorstands yet but it probably works)!

  • Potions of Lava Traversing which let you walk on lava like a Frost Walker enchantment!

  • Silver Apples which grant no food points but regenerate all your health (but have a cooldown)!

  • And much more!

This mod also adds many new features to the Overworld, including:

  • a new ore (Silver)

  • a few new structures (like the Golden Temple, the Snow Temple and the Mystical Fountain, a place where you can recover all your health, similarly to a checkpoint)

  • some new mobs (like Kobolds that light up caves and Werewolves who turn into powerful monstera during the night)

  • and more!

For a full guide of the mod, go here: https://mcreator.net/forum/54502/hodge-podge-getting-started-guide

Some of the blocks in this mod have connected textures! To use them, you have to download this mod: (https://minecraft.curseforge.com/projects/ctm). If you don't download this mod, Hodge-Podge III will still work, but you won't be able to see the connected textures.

This mod also has some special compatibility with RaolCraft Omega! If you also play it, the Collector will reveal a treasure hidden somwhere in RaolCraft (which can't be found until the Collector tells you where is it).

This mod also supports Ore Dictionary, meaning that you can make an addon for this mod or a crossover feature! There are too many ore dictionary entries to be written here, so you'll have to see them ingame using a mod like this.

They're decorative blocks.

+Silver Apple

Provides no food points, but completely heals and clears all the status effects.

+Horizontal Glass Pane

It's a weird decorative block. The original idea was to add a block that can be used as a roof for things made with glass panes, then it ended up being a bit weird... You can still use it as a carpet if you want. An uncomfortable glass carpet.

+Lava in a Bottle

No, you can't fill the obsidian bottles in the world, you have to craft them with a bucket of lava. :( (Don't worry, you will get the bucket back)

+Potion of Lava Traversing

It's like frostwalker but it's a potion, is for lava and... well, sometimes it's a bit buggy so be careful.

Brew a Wither Bone in a Dark Brewing Stand and you will get it.

+Fully implemented the Werewolf

It's a friendly villager during the day and a deadly wolf during the night. The villager drops no experience.

+Tumtum, Tulgey and Murkwood Bookshelves

This update adds a very useful NPC, the Collector, many new structures and cross compatibility with RaolCraft Omega!

+Collector's Tower

A tower in the DarkWorld where the Collector can be found


A Dark Elf who prefers to collect ancient rarities rather than to fight. Give him precious (and useless) treasures and he will give you some rewards.

You can't give him the same item more than once. The reward is not based on the item you give him but on how many items you gave him before. This information is stored per player and not per Collector, this means that if you have a duplicate treasure you can't give it to a Collector (but another player in the same world can, if he hasn't already).

He will also sometimes give you hints on where to find a rarity.

+Dark Fortress

Found in the DarkWorld

+Dark Tome

+Golden Sapling

It grows into a Golden Tree after about one day/night cycle. Given by the Collector as one of its rewards.

1.8 - The Halloween Update - 10/31/2019

+Tainted Knight

A flying boss that can be summoned by cutting down a cursed tree in the Murkwoods (Wonderland). Attacks from the distance and has many abilities that match well with his flying behaviour. While he is alive, Azure Haunters will spawn instead of Green Hunters.

+Azure Haunter

A mob that only spawns in the Murkwoods while the Tainted Knight is alive. Attacks from the distance, has 1 point of life but is immune to everything but melee attacks.

1.9 - Tainted Update - 06/14/2020

This update introduces the third dimension of the mod (the Taint), some new structures, a new powerful armor, many new mobs, a few features directly from Hodge-Podge II and more.

This is also the last 1.12.2 update, so make sure to report any bugs so I can release a patch before porting to 1.14/1.15.

+Ghoul Dungeon

A structure found directly underneath the Cursed Tree. A portal of Ravenbricks can be found here. (The structure won't retro-generate in old chunks, you'll have to explore new ones and find another Cursed Tree if you're in a old world)


Found in the Ghoul Dungeon, is very slow until it finds a target, then accelerates

+Eerie Bricks


Lit their portal with a Tainted Scepter to go to the Taint

+Taint Dimension

Used to be a beautiful realm, is now corrupted by a noxious toxin. Consists of 3 main biomes: the Tainted Wasteland, the Skeletric Woods and the Dusk Desert

+Tainted Skeleton

A mob found in the Taint, probably used to be one of the explorers who came to the dimension

+Tainted Jabberwock

A Jabberwock that was corrupted and weakened by the Taint's toxin, can be commonly found in the Taint

+Tainted Stone

+Taintstone Bricks, Taintstone Lantern

+Tainted Grass, Tainted Dirt

+Tainted Crystal Chunk


Crafted by surrounding a Diamond (or a Cursed Diamond) with 8 Tainted Crystal Chunks

+Tyrianite Armor

More powerful than a Diamond Armor, but not as much as an Armor of the Light (from RaolCraft). Since it's kind of toxic, wearing it might poison you a little (power comes at a cost :/).

+Aurora Helmet

Lets you produce light from the head like a Kobold

+Kobold of the DarkWorld

A Kobold found in the DarkWorld, you might notice it by the light it emits from the candle


A slow cousin of the Oun that deals a lot of damage. Found in the Wastes


A fast and aggressive cousin of the Oun found in the Wastes.

+Golden Bookshelf

+A few WIP things which will actually be introduced in the next update

~Improved advancements

~Renamed Azure Haunters into Grim Haunters

~Reorganised creative tabs

~Done a few other tweaks

! Fixed some bugs

1.9.1 - Slabs & Stairs Update - 06/16/2020

+Slabs and Stairs for Mixed Bricks, Dark Bricks, Wonderrock Bricks, Eerie Bricks, Taintstone Bricks, Dusk Sandstone and all kinds of Hodge-Podge planks (Tulgey, Tumtum, Murkwood, Bonewood and Golden)

Finally!! I forgot to add them in the last update XD

Unfortunately, due to a bug the slabs can't be crafted in survival (I don't know why, the stairs work fine), but at least this update fixed an important bug :/

! Taint biomes generated in the Overworld

! Dusk Sand didn't have gravity

Nice textures :)

I am glad to hear Raolcraft Omega and Modular Expansion will be getting an update (I haven't tried Pyromancy yet).

I think I will release another update soon. I found some bugs and I want to do some changes.
Also, the boss has no actual reward at the moment.
The reward I will add will be an item (I think I will call it Fire Pendant, but the name will change) that when used (it has infinite uses) will extinguish the fire on the player.
You might be saying this item is too simple and it is overshadowed by RaolCraft's Fire Totem. Yes, I hadn't better ideas, but the Fire Pendant can be actually very useful in the Nether. It's better to right-click an item in the hotbar rather than place a cauldron and fill it with water. Also, the Fire Pendant is a lot more common than the Fire Totem: the pendant is mid-game, the totem is extremely end-game.
I hope you will like the next updates :)

Dude you’ll have enough mods to create a mod pack if you keep pumping them out at this rate xd
