The Twilight Forest Mod is an quite expansive mod that adds a whole new realm to the game: The Twilight Forest.
In this new fantastical realm the time of day never changes, the world is stuck in a state of perpetual twilight, and you’ll find creatures you won’t find anywhere else.
This mod adds a ton of new features to Minecraft, first of all the new realm.
Access to this new realm is actually pretty easily obtained, you simply have to find (or dig) a 2×2 hole, fill it with water, add flowers to the edges, and finally throw a diamond into the water.
This should activate the portal to The Twilight Forest, giving you access to this mythical world.
Here is a visual guide on how to make the portal:
Important: This mod requires Minecraft Forge.
You will find plenty of new areas to discover in this realm, such as heavily guarded dungeons, many new creatures like rams, deer and fireflies, as well as new mobs, biomes, items and you might even stumble upon an abandoned castle or two.
Another neat features of this realm is that glowstone grows here naturally, as it does in the Nether, so you’ll find another source for that here.
This mod is definitively worth a look due to the large amount of new items, environments and enemies to find and fight. The Twilight Forest Mods significantly adds a large chunk of content and it feels like a legit expansion pack to the game.
You’ll also find another cool feature in this mod, the “uncrafting” table, which lets you un-craft items, giving you back the materials you used to craft it. However, it only works on undamaged items. This uncrafting table, also functions as a crafting table though, so you can use it for all your crafting needs as well.
