Just added a new review/tutorial video!

Just updated for 1.6.2!!!

I have just finished the update for Better Minecraft Mod which will now be called XaedCraft.

A few things that I have chaged are:

Removed the mod version of these as vanilla minecraft now has these:
Mod version of: pumpkin pie, coal block, redstone block 

rules about where the temples spawn to help make sure that they are spawning correctly
potion effects on Apple pies
added armour to village soldiers

Currently working on

Shepherd's pie - gives haste 2 for 40sec

more random generated structures with loot
more mob bosses
random bandit forts with bandit mobs and good loot

more balance issues with mod

possible "light" version (no randomly generated structures, all structures to be made by player instead)

Input needed!

So I have had some major reworking ideas for this mod
  1. I want to rename the mod XaedCraft
  2. I need to rework the pies... since pumpkin pie was added in
  3. I was thinking about changing all world generated structures into placeable blocks. 
    1. in other words instead of generating with the world you need to place a block down and right click with an object and the structure will generate right there... much like bone meal and a sapling
    2. this means that you do not need to go and find them and you do not need to start over to get the new structures added in...

  4. I will take out the coal and restone blocks as the are now in vanilla
  5. Should I take out the thatch now that we have hay blocks?
  6. and any suggestions to what I should add next?


Minecraft 1.6.2
ModLoader 1.6.2

Use MCPatcher to install this mod as it is the easiest way.

1. Open the downloaded XaedCraft.zip and copy folder "XaedCraft Textures" in to your resourse folder. If you don't you will not see textures.
2. Open MCPatcher and click "mods" tab at the top
3. Click "add..." and click on the XaedCraft zip file
4. Select the folder called "XaedCraft_1.3" and press "OK"
5. Click "mods" tab at the top and select "add..." again
6. Click on the modloader zip file and press "OK"
7. Click "Patch" at the bottom of MCPatcher
8. Now open Minecraft and select the "1.6.2 MCPatcher" profile
9. Enjoy!

Old install for minecraft 1.3

1) Open up %appdata%
2) Browse to .minecraft/bin
3) Open up minecraft.jar with WinRAR or 7zip.
4) Drag and drop ALL files & folders into the jar.
5) Delete the META-INF folder in the jar.
6) Run Minecraft.

1) Open up finder
2) Press "Go" "Go to folder" ( CMD+SHIFT+G) and type in "`/library/application support/minecraft"
3) go to the bin folder and backup the minecraft.jar
4) rename minecraft.jar to minecraft.zip
5) extract the zip folder
6) now you have folder, put .jar behind it
7) paste the .class files in it and delete meta-inf, you're done

Previous version for 1.3
Hidden content here!OK so I just added some new things and updated to better minecraft mod 1.21... I have added plantable apples and fixed the spawn for archers.

IMPORTANT NOTE: the Forsaken armor is no longer fireproof and I had to take out the boots of speed and the helm of flight... I will add them back in as soon as I can work out the kinks (there are some annoying things that keep them from working properly) I will add the fireproof on the forsaken armor again once I figure out how to do it (now that everything runs in server it is harder to mod those special aspects)

Just keep checking this mod as i plan on adding things to this mod on a regular basis as well as working out some other issues.

Things added:

Two new mobs: I also just fixed the little error of villages not spawning archers as of 1.21.

village soldier and village archer - these spawn in villages a lot earlier than irongolems. every 8 villagers will spawn a village soldier 16 villagers spawn an archer and 22 villagers spawn an iron golem.

now spawn out side the entrance of the labyrinth: and the drops have changed(no more helm of flight or boots of speed) & labyrinths now spawn in forests and taiga biomes

Rune Temples:
The water temple is now in frozenocean and ocean biomes & the fire temple is now in the Nether and is made out of netherbrick.

New Tool/Weapon textures
Thanks toStarwarrior25 there are some really cool new textures for the tools and the weapons.

NEW ORE! Brimstone!

Drops gunpowder and spawns in lava in the overworld and the nether.

Plantable apples! as of version 1.21
Place an apple in the crafting grid and get 1 apple seed. then right click on an oak log to plant it! much like the cocoa beans. bonemeal does work with this too! great way to get the apples needed for your apple pies ;)

Sorry there was some confusion... this mod does not remove vanilla pumpkin pie, coal block or redstone block... but I have taken the old mod versions of these out as they are now obsolete.

Diamond for you and some suggestions:

1. Lambchops: Lambchops are dropped by sheep now and work exactly like porkchops.

2. Cherries: When you destroy oak leaves, it sometimes drops Cherries. Cherries can be eaten or crafted into Cherry Pies.

3. Carrot Cake: A new type of cake that is placeable just like normal cake. This cake heals more, but costs more materials such as carrots.

4. New Stairs and Slabs: New types of stairs and slabs used for decoration. Some of these stairs and slabs are iron block, gold block, bronze block, forsaken block, coal block, etc.

Sorry everyone for bugging out for a year... my life had gotten CRAZY!! most of you all know that I am married with kids, but I just had another one so things were too crazy to continue with the mod.

But I AM BACK!! I am currently working on getting this mod upto date with all the changes in 1.7 and hopefully will roll out a new eddition with in the next two weeks ;)...

Also I am going to rename this mod:  XaedCraft  as the other name was quite lame and someone else stole my other name...

I have heeps of ideas to add to this mod and am even considering doing a complete rewrite of this mod making all structures buildable rather than world generated...
