Minecraft Boom is a mod that aims to expand the vanilla experience. All things that are added, block, items, mobs and structures, are in the spirit of the vanilla game. This is a mod for those of you who love the essence of vanilla, but are just looking to add that little extra. Blocks that should be in the game but aren't, missing items and extra features to make the game a little bit more appealing, here they all are. Knock yourself out…

Updated to 1.14.4!

Looking for texture artists. Comment if you would like to help design textures for the mod.

  • Bricks: Brick variations of blocks. These include: Cobblestone, Mossy Cobblestone, Terracotta, Magma Block, Snow Block, Obsidian, Gravel and all Stained Terracotta Blocks.
  • Polished Blocks: Polished versions of blocks. These include: Prismarine, Dark Prismarine, End Stone and Netherrack.
  • Pillars: Pillar versions of blocks. These include: Granite, Diorite, Andesite, Prismarine, Dark Prismarine, End Stone and Netherrack.
  • Storage Blocks: Craft any 9 items into a more compact block version. These include: Charcoal, Sugar, Sugar Cane, Gunpowder, Blaze Powder, Magma Cream, Prismarine Crystal, Wither Bone and all available Dyes. Gunpowder Blocks explode when lit with a Flint And Steel, hit by a flaming arrow or randomly if there is fire nearby. Magma Cream Blocks act like a Slime Block. Prismarine Crystal Block will emit a little light.
  • Fine Gravel and Gravel Stone: Fine Gravel is a new type of Gravel that uses the old texture. It can be crafted with one normal Gravel. Fine Gravel and normal Gravel can be smelt in a furnace and results Fine Gravel Stone and Gravel Stone. These can be crafted into Gravel Bricks.
  • Soul Glass and Soul Glass Panes: Smelt Soul Sand into Soul Glass. A slightly more transparent version of glass. Can be crafted into Soul Glass Panes. Soul Glass can be crafted into Stained Soul Glass.
  • Rose: The old Rose is back! The original Minecraft Rose was removed some updates ago and replaced with Poppies. For now the rose does not spawn but can be crafted with 1 Rose Red and 1 Seeds.
  • Stairs, and Walls: Stairs, Slabs and Walls are added for all Minecraft blocks that should have a slab and stair.
  • Golden Bars: Gold equivalent of Iron Bars.
    Red Nether Brick Fence: Since there are Nether Brick Fences, why not have the Red Nether Brick versions as well. Adds Red Nether Brick Fence Gates and Nether Brick Fence Gates as well. The crafting recipe for Nether Brick Fences has been changed to match the vanilla recipes for Wood Fences.
    Wood Variations: Adds Spruce, Birch, Jungle, Acacia and Dark Oak versions of: Bookshelves and Ladders. Chests, Signs and Doors are to be added.


  • Wither Bone: The Wither Bone is a drop added when killing Wither Skeletons. The bone can be used to craft a Wither Bone Block, Black Dye or be used as a fuel in a Furnace to burn 10 items.
  • Magma Brick: Used to craft Magma Brick Blocks.
  • Pinecone: Pinecones are dropped by decaying Spruce Leaves at a 2 % drop rate. The item is edible and restores 1½ hunger.
  • Polar Bear Fur and Meat: Polar Bear Fur is dropped by killing a Polar Bear and can be used to craft 4 Leather or 4 Paintings. Polar Bears now drop meat that can be cooked and eaten.
  • Pumpkin Slice: Who isn’t sick of Melons and just want to dig their teeth into a raw piece of Pumpkin? Dropped by “faceless” pumpkins and restore 1 hunger when eaten.
  • Cooked Egg: Eggs can be cooked in a furnace and restores 3 hunger.
  • Drowned Flesh: Drowned will now drop Drowned Flesh when killed. When eaten the flesh restores 2 hunger and may give the player the water breathing effect.
  • Prismarine Arrow: The Prismarine Arrow is perfect for underwater combat. Unlike a normal Arrow, the Prismarine Arrow travels through water as it would through air.
