Welcome to Mushroom Quest! This mods concept revolves around foraging for various real world fungi while you set forth on an adventure to explore mystical and otherworldly lands. This mod has 592 mod elements and everything about it is listed below. Hope you enjoy my first mod!

Over 130 Mushrooms!

There are exactly 134 mushrooms you can forage for. Each mushroom is either common, rare or mythical rarity. All mushrooms are edible and most can give you either medicinal or deadly effects when eaten. Some mushroom can also be used in crafting recipes or as fuel! You find these mushrooms by breaking various organic structures across the world. 

  • Willow Trees, and Oak Stumps are found in swamps, roofed and mixed forests.
  • Birch Trees, and Birch Trunks are found in birch forests.
  • Field Trunks, Verdant Rocks, and Shrumps are found in field biomes and rarely forests. (Shrumps have Mushroom Island variants)
  • Baobab Trees, and Acacia Stumps are found in tropical biomes especially the savanna.
  • Jungle Trunks are found in jungle biomes.

The Mycopedia is a book that contains information about all the mushrooms! It includes the fungi's: Edibility, Location, Rarity, and Usage.

You can use Growth Meld to farm mushrooms and other plants! Right-clicking it on certain blocks will produce certain things!

  • Mycelium - Various Mushroom Island plants.
  • Farmland - Some decorative plants, and possibly a Tree depending on the biome.
  • Log - Depending on the log there is a chance it will turn into a corresponding Trunk or Stump.

Mushroom Island Renovation!


This mod also adds a whole Mushroom Island biome expansion! There are many new structures, plant life, and creatures! There are structures that contain loot such as decorations, materials, and more! Versions below 3.0 add a lot more to the Mushroom Islands, however they were removed since I wanted the mod to focus more on the mushroom foraging aspect rather than getting carried away.

Some of the creatures you may encounter include:

  • Funglings - Small mushroom creatures that can be tamed using their respective look-alike mushroom. All forms except the Crimson and Warped variations can be found in Mushroom Islands. They don't do anything but look cute!

Additional Information:

The Witch Mansion, and the Secret Grotto are the only two structures not found in the Mushroom Island.

The Witch Mansion is found in swamps, birch forests, and roofed forests. It contains evil witches and their cats, along with their Witch's Urns that contain various tiered alchemy loot. On the side of the mansion is a greenhouse, this area contains some organic structures and many decorational blocks/plants.

In the Witch's Urn you can very rarely obtain a Mushroom Cap! The Mushroom Cap can be worn by right-clicking with it as long as nothing else is in your head slot. You can only obtain a Blank Mushroom Cap from urns, but then you can dye it into various colors. The colors include Red, Yellow, Green, Aqua, Blue, Purple, Pink, and Brown. This hat is purely cosmetic and does not provide any effects.

The Secret Grotto is a tall tree with hanging lanterns, it is found throughout swamps, plains, and forests. Underneath the tree is the Yggdrasil Sapling, a rare organic structure which can drop every mythical tiered mushroom!

This mod also contains many new potions, magical items, and gear. There are many, MANY crafting recipes in this mod so it is highly recommended that you use the JEI mod. The discovery of mystical nature is the highlight of this mod, so to influence adventure there is a whole tree of achievements to complete!

Mod Compatibility:

Versions 2.5 and beyond are compatible with other biome mods such as: Biomes O' Plenty, BYG, Traverse Reforged, Autumnity, Atmospheric, Environmental, Druidcraft, Terra Incognita, Spheric, Feywilds, and Bayou Blues.
