This mod allows the player to craft vines as well as smelt the vines back into slime. This mod is Simply Da' Vine.
JEI is a good mod to have along with this, if one want's to view all the recipes. There are also recipes for future versions already inside.
1 Water Bucket, 4 sticks and 4 slime balls = 4 vines
1 Vine = 1 Slime
Other crafting materials used include, snow, saplings and Tree leafs.
I don't plan on developing this mod any further. This is simply a concept that brings vines to the table.
