Description

 

[This mod is on semi-hiatus! Thanks for your support!]

 

A Modern Beta for Modern Minecraft!

 

Fabric API is required!

 

Welcome to Modern Beta!  Modern Beta was born out of the desire to see classic old world generation in modern Minecraft, with modern features and generation. This mod re-implements the Beta, Alpha, Infdev, and Indev terrain generators for a nearly block-for-block perfect recreation.

Comments, feedback, suggestions are welcome!  See the FAQ section below if you have a question that may have already been answered.

 

Features

 

Chunk Generator Options:

  • Beta 1.7.3
  • Skylands
  • Alpha 1.1.2_01
  • Infdev 20100611
  • Infdev 20100420

Rendering Options:

  • Client-side Beta sky/fog colors.  Enjoy those deep blue and purple skies!
  • Client-side Beta biome colors.  Smooth biome color transitions, variation in tall grass coloration!
  • Client-side option to turn off sunset colors.
  • Client-side option to use old fog colors.
  • Client-side option to render game version in top-left corner of window.

 

Other Features:

  • Server-side support, no new custom content is added so clients don't need the mod to join.

 

For the authentic Beta look, try the following!

  • Golden Days: My favorite classic Minecraft resource pack.  Presently there are issues if used as-is with Colormatic, documented here.
  • Nostalgic Tweaks: Includes many faithful recreations of old clientside features.
