BTWTweak is a mod that is intended to improve Better Than Wolves mod experience.

It is developed independently of Better Than Wolves and has no affiliation with its author.
Being a set of patches instead of modified class files, this mod avoids redistributing Better Than Wolves code as well as Minecraft code.

What's new?

You can see the changelog here.

Assuming BTWTweak v0.9k and Better Than Wolves 4.A2 Timing Rodent b,
(as of 24 Dec 2016) here is the friendly list of changes.
When launching Minecraft:
In the early game:
A bit further to the game:
When you progress to the saw and tanned leather:
When you get access to stoked fire:
Late game:
And finally, some general goodness:

Particular things to note

- Before installing, make sure your cauldrons and crucibles don't contain more than 9 items, as this mod reduces their inventory to 9 slots and the rest will disappear.
- Before installing, make sure your buildings aren't made of snow, as this mod makes it melt from heat.
- Backup your worlds!
- If playing on a server, both server and client must have this mod installed.


- Requires Better Than Wolves mod.

New releases are uploaded to GitHub:


1. Create a new folder
2. Put BTWTweak.jar in it
3. Put minecraft.jar (or minecraft_server.jar) with BTW already installed in it
4. Run BTWTweak.jar: double-click or use the command line: "java -jar BTWTweak.jar"
5. Select the file to patch in BTWTweak (for minecraft.jar: type "c" - press Enter)
6. If patch is successful, delete the original minecraft.jar and rename minecraft_tweak.jar to minecraft.jar
7. Use the patched minecraft.jar to play, enjoy!

Windows users: if double-clicking doesn't work for you:
- uncheck WinRAR file association for .jar extension, and/or reinstall Java

I would gladly welcome someone making an overview of this mod changes, or a let's play session, anything containing BTWTweak.

25 Update Logs

v0.9o : 02/25/2018 1:38:10 pmFeb 25th, 2018

- Fixed compatibility with BTW version "4.A9 Pustules Lancing".

- Skipped kiln crack fix as it is now implemented in BTW.
Previous versions of BTW still get the fix.

- Changed configurable Hardcore Spawn radius so it can only be increased from
default value of 2000 blocks.

- Added blood wood planks and stairs to microblock merging.

- Fixed middle-click block picking for wooden microblocks, again, also
including blood wood.

- Added blood wood blocks to creative tabs.

Why you thought it's for Thaumcraft when it never mentions that yet you skipped over "Better Than Wolves" in the title is beyond me.

Perhaps. I didn't give much thought what differs an add-on from a mod, however, I can say advanced technique has been used to change BTW in ways not normally possible by "official" add-ons.

Dude, now really! "Mod for mod" means add-on. A mod is Tinkerer's Construct. An add-on for it is called Iguana Tweaks for TiC. Thats how this goes!

No loader, Better Than Wolves doesn't use ModLoader or Forge. Also it has own add-on system.
