Hi! I'm using gigaherz's Guidebook mod to transfer wiki documentation to book form, similar to the Engineer's Manual that comes with ImmersiveEngineering. I'd be happy to share them if there's interest. I have seven manuals nearly finished, and am pursuing permission from the mod/wiki authors.

Instead of opening a browser to Google a recipe, I look forward to heading indoors after nightfall, pulling one of these off a bookshelf, and flipping through the pages while zombies rot outside.

I'm also working on several more, including IndustrialCraft2, PrimalCore, TheOneProbe, and HarvestCraft. Are there other mods that you'd want in-game documentation for?

Thanks so much for your input! A guide for JEI is ready to download:
Others to come hopefully soon.

Treat it like a resourcepack, putting the downloaded JEI Guide folder into your resourcepacks folder. But you may need to cut-paste so as to not have a JEI folder inside a JEI folder; assets, mcmeta, and png should be in a folder (named whatever you want) that goes directly inside your resourcepacks folder.

You'll also need to put Guidebook in your mods folder; any version should work fine, but only 1.10.2-1.12.2 for sure. Let me know if this doesn't make sense to you, and I'll give clearer instructions.

Being new to modding, I don't know whether it's possible to use these guides without a Forge installation. (ad-free direct download for Windows machines here:

I'd love to hear how it works for you, especially if you have any difficulty. I'm trying to figure out the best method to share these.
