Do you want to take a trip down memory lane? This mod is for you if you would like to emulate Minecraft Beta functionality and features inside of modern Minecraft.

For even more nostalgia, we recommend pairing this with any resource pack (try our Minecraft Beta resource pack - Legacy Default) that adds old textures and sounds and this mod with Beta+ by therealMRBURGERUS, which is a replica of the old Beta and Alpha generator. You could use old seeds with it like Glacier and worstseedever

🛠️ Features

Old Hud

Gives the classic HUD, removing the hunger bar, and adjusting the position of armor bar. Enabling this is only the aesthetic of the HUD. You may want to disable hunger, which will make food give you health when eaten.

Enable Beta Main Menu

This will replace your main menu with the one from beta with minor tweaks. The version number is at the top left and the background is the classic tiling dirt background.

Old Menu

Classic Beta Style Bow

Allows you to shoot the bow without having to recharge, just like in beta.


Disable Nether Fog

Disables the Nether fog and allows you to see more clearly and far in the Nether.


Disable 1.9+ Combat System

Spam click with your weapons to your hearts content, the classic system. It’s back. I can hear your mice now!

Disable Sprinting

Useful if you want to capture the beta experience. This also disables the new swimming in 1.14.4+

Disable hunger

Useful if you want to capture the beta experience. This will make food give you health points instead of hunger points and will be eaten instantly.

Disable experience drops

Useful if you want to capture the beta experience. Killing mobs will stop them from dropping XP.

Custom Dimension Messages

Will display classic message on the loading screen “Entering the Nether”, “Entering the End”, how beta did it back in the day.

… And More!
