Survivalist [Forge] Mod 1.16.5/1.15.2/1.12.2

Survivalist [Forge] Mod 1.16.5/1.15.2/1.12.2 will cause the early stage of the game to become more interesting. However, it will not have to make that period boring too much.


Survivalist Description

It’s a mod that its author intends to spice up the early game.

If you don’t know what “mods/1.12/Commons-1.12.0.jar” is and where it appeared from, you can visit

Changes and additions in-mod:

Overhaul the recipes, recipe importing, and recipe removal to fit the 1.12 JSON recipe system

Add advancement-based recipe unlocks to offer players a stronger sense of what to implement afterward

That needs removing or decreasing the scope of a few configurations

Expand the chopping block to get variants for every vanilla wood type

The Sawmill –  a new machine

Start everything the chopping block does, but the power for it is similar to the one for a furnace. Additionally, it does not contain a concept of axe levels or fortune. To have extra outputs, please work for them!

A new configuration option – custom output multipliers for each axe level

Not every axe level has to exist

When they are present, they will be:

axemultipliers {





Fix a load of bugs


Survivalist has the following features that you can turn off via the config file.

Cannot craft sticks from planks

Get them by putting sheared leaves and saplings in a crafting grid

Break planks into sticks in the Chopping Block

Rocks and Ore Rocks

Mining stone drops rocks (4) rather than the cobble. To create cobblestone, you should gather clay.

Andesite, Diorite, and Granite drop rocks as well

Any 4 will change into gravel, which you can craft again into 4 generic rocks.

Surround a ball of clay with 8 rocks to generate the suitable blocks

Mining iron/gold will drop ore rocks that will give one nugget each when smelting.

Mod Ore Rocks and their nuggets

Metals support: Copper, Tin, Lead, Silver

Similar rules to the gold and iron rocks

Tools and armor drop one of their crafting components

Enchant tools with Scrapping I/II/III to boost the chances it becomes a good item.

Enchant armor with Scrapping I/II/III to enhance the chances it’s two.

Craftable chainmail

Iron nuggets in a diamond shape make chainmail pieces

Chainmail pieces are materials to craft the armor

Can set something on fire with torches

However, they can break in the process.

Drying rack

Change meat into jerky. Although it’s not nutritious, it has high saturation.

Turn leather into tanned leather to make armor better

Chopping block

Craftable from Logs

Click until breaking the placed block. You can hold that button continuously.

Feasible to chop logs into planks, planks into sticks

Yield bases on axe harvest level

New; You can chop wool into strings. Despite it’s not an effective process, it will not bring more strings than the necessary level to make a wool block.

JEI Integration

Drying recipes display input, output, and drying time

Chopping recipes perform input, output, and average number of resulting items

Modded wood recipes for the chopping block

A datapack adding modded wood support.

Add custom chopping tools

As of Survivalist v1.7.10, you can register new objects as “axes” for the chopping block. Do that by adding them to the “customaxes” section of the config

customaxes { I:”minecraft:flint”=1 I:”minecraft:dye@14″=2


CraftTweaker Integrations

You can visit to explore scripting the mod recipes using CT.

Future features

WAILA/The One Probe integration (drying/chopping progress)

Mortar & pestle: crush bones and plants into bonemeal and dyes, produce medicinal plant blends…

Survivalist is a mod with features to improve your gaming experience, especially with armor, tools, and weapons.
