Minecraft Mod Index
This is an index of primarily non-CurseForge mods which I consider niche, but worth looking into. (If the link leads to a GitHub page, releases are usually under the "[number] releases" button or provided in the README for the repository.)
Please note that my own mods are not listed here - you'll find those under Projects -> Minecraft -> Mods.
- Teckle by darkevilmac of Elytra is a tech mod inspired primarily by RedPower 2 and XyCraft. Most notably, it includes RedPower 2-style tubes.
- FruitPhone by the Elytra team is a more immersive and stylish take on WAILA-style "information provider" mods. Give it a try!
- WearableBackpacks by copygirl continues BetterStorage's backpack design in a separate mod. (GitHub releases, CurseForge)
- Factorization by neptunepink is an interesting, quirky automation/tech mod. It probably won't fit into your average kitchen sink modpack, and you might not like the particular type of quirkiness, but it is definitely an unique take.
- Immibis' mods, in particular:
- Advanced Machines (documentation) - a good IC2 addon with more advanced processing machines and low-lag generator arrays
- Advanced Repulsion Systems (documentation) - forcefields! Not my ideal vision of them, but does the job well.
- Connected Glass - now without OptiFine!
- Dimensional Anchors - the most reliable chunkloaders I've used to date
- Immibis's Macroblocks (information) - a more procedural, simpler variant of decoration mods such as Chisel
- Immibis's Microblocks - lightweight microblocks which can go on other mods' tile entities, yet not as feature-filled as FMP/MCMP (it's a microblock mod, not a multipart mod)
- Immibis's Peripherals (documentation) - a pretty cool ComputerCraft addon with RFID cards, Mag-Cards, speakers, etc.
- InfiniTubes (documentation) - infinite-distance tubes before they were popular!
- Liquid XP (documentation)
- RedLogic (documentation) - the lightest RedPower 2-esque logic gate mod, with an unique take on compiling circuits to Java bytecode!
- Simple Recycling (documentation) - metal recycling minus GregTech
- Classic Carts - brings back minecart boosters!
