A Minecraft 1.16.5 Forge mod that adds decorative blocks and items.



Note about 1.17: while an update is planned it is not a priority as this version is not indented to become played a lot: it will just prepare the terrain for 1.18. Asking for update / ETA is useless, it will be done when it's done.



• starting from 1.15.2 EmbellishCraft now requires Mapper Base to be installed!

• for 1.15.2 Forge 31.2.0 seems to be too old, please use 31.2.21 or newer to avoid crashes.


EmbellishCraft is a mod adding many decorative blocks to allow you more creativity in your buildings! Most blocks don't have any specific functionality but some can be interacting with, like the chairs or the doors.


This mod adds a lot of blocks and recipes and making a list of the recipes or a wiki would take too much time. It is highly recommended to install Just Enough Items to quickly access the block list and the recipes. 


Biome O'Plenty is supported by this addon: https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/embellishcraft-biomes-oplenty-addon


Current additions:


- World generation (with configurable settings) for 6 different rocks that you can find underground as pockets (similar to diorite, granite or andesite):

  • marble: a bright stone found above sea level
  • gneiss: a bright found around sea level, more common than marble
  • slate: a dark bluish stone mostly found a bit under sea level

Please only download this mod on CurseForge. Other sources like the mod rehost websites may host malicious contents in the provided files, along with wrong or mislabeled versions. They must be avoided for your safety.


Most crafts are done using the crafting grid, but you can also use the stonecutter to slice many blocks (bricks, cobblestones, stones, pavings...) into slab / stair / wall / pressure plate counterparts.

Use Just Enough Items to have a easier access to the crafts. When I'll figure out how to make recipe advancement work the Minecraft crafting book will tell you how to craft the blocks.


Remember to report any problem or bug! Thanks.




Q: Can you add X in the mod?

A: Yes, you can suggest ideas with a picture to illustrate and if I find it interesting then I can try adding it. 


Q: Can you backport to 1.12.2 / 1.7.10 / another version?

A: No, older versions are way different which would take too much time. Also stop asking modders 1.7.10 versions, this thing is 5+ years old and 7 major release late. 


Q: What about a Fabric version?

A: I don't have time and motivation to setup and learn another modding interface. So Fabric is not in my plans.
