We recode the enitre Mod to make it More Vanilla Friendly and to make it a true Better Vanilla (Name will be Changed back to BetterCraft)



Update Information

The Darkness and Light Update Part I adds many new Blocks, items and lore all around the Dark Knight.

After defeating him youll get access to a whole new Dimension: The Darkness.

Check the Changelog for more information about the Additions


Quick Guide on 1.3.0:

After Defeating your first Dark Knight you should craft the Mortemarmor and collect the materials to brew potions (its going to be important later)

You will have to defeat a few more Dark Knights (10+) to get the blocks needed for the Portal. You also need the Igniter (made from 2 raw Darkium and a Darkium Ingot)

after or while killing the Dark Knights, brew a few Night Vision (The Darkness is very dark) and strength Potions.


you can get Ender pearls or the Endersword (! Extra grind !) to travel though the Darkness Easier


If you want to get The Crown of Darkness youll need to find a Throneroom. They hold the Lord of Darkness which is a new Boss. After defeating him he drops loot and the Crown of Darkness


If you first want to gear up we recommend first looting some Shadowdungeons, underground plantages and Shadowprisons randomly spawning in the world. They hold some interesting Loot and help you gear up




This is Better Vanilla , a mod full of exploration, Battles, adventures and creativity.

This mod adds tons of new Building blocks, mobs, biomes, amor and much much more. 

E.g. The Endersword. A powerfull weapon, with a special abillity: Teleport on right-click

But now, no more spoilers. Download the Mod and explore a new and Better Vanilla experience
