Discord: We've created a new Discord that you can use to reach out to us with problems, solutions, ideas, musings, thoughts, commentary and anything else you may want to share with us and the community of Prefab users. Just remember to keep your contributions constructive and friendly for all ages. Lets build something cool together! https://discord.gg/qpkPnfays5
We've Heard You: For a bit now, we've been trying to just soldier forth and try to just keep the most recent versions of Minecraft updated with new content. But the community hasn't really gone that way. There is a diehard holdout of 1.12.2 modpacks and players out there still going strong, and have been asking us to give it some love. Well, we're gonna do it! A new push behind the scenes will see us refocusing our efforts on development for 1.12.2 and whatever the current edition of Minecraft happens to be. This will hopefully please the majority of our players, and allow you to enjoy the functionality of our mod in any new version, but also allow you to enjoy them in the the version that's more or less been established as an iconic version for Minecraft modpacks.
Fabric Version: We migrated Prefab to Fabric! We plan on keeping both projects up-to-date with structures and fixes if they make sense for both projects. Thank you all for your interest in a Fabric version and all of your continued support. You can find the page here: https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/prefab-fabric
Breaking Changes for 1.12.2 Mod Version!!!!!
The 184.108.40.206 update changes block registration names in order to conform to 1.13 and later standards. This was done to ensure that back-porting any blocks or items can be done easier in the future.
This means that if you created ANY of the Compressed Stone, Compressed Dirt, Compressed Glowstone, or Compressed Obsidian blocks they WILL BE LOST when using this new version. It is recommended that you either use this version in new worlds or you break down the compressed blocks into their un-compressed states before applying this update.
Prefab is a collection of functional and aesthetic buildings that you can place into your world instantly! With our instant houses and structures, you can skip over the time consuming job of landscaping, and trying to build without a creeper undoing your work. Our preview function lets you see the structure in the world, and move through a projection of it in real time. Just pick the place you want to put it, and the Prefab Blueprints do the rest! Whether you haven't got the time, patience or will, we've got structures that are guaranteed to please some of you, but not all of you. :)
More structures are being developed and added as the mod progresses (and we have ideas/time!), so be on the lookout. Feel free to share requests and constructive criticism in the comments.
Note: Since this has been asked so many times in the past. There are no plans to create a feature for custom blueprints or loading custom structures outside of the ones provided by this mod.
This functionality already exists with Structurize and we highly recommend it.

Blocks and Items Added
For a complete list of blocks and items added by this mod, please view the CurseForge Pages Wiki here:
All structure GUIs include a "preview" button. This will create a shadow structure in the world for you to see what it will look like when it's placed. This will give you the opportunity to make sure that you have enough space for the structure or to make sure that it will be placed where you want it to be placed.
Block facings for fences, torches and other similar blocks will most likely not have their proper facing when rendered in this fashion, they will look correct when placed.
Note: This functionality was adapted from Botania's Visualize functionality. The mod info and source code has been updated to state as such as well. http://botaniamod.net/license.php.

- If you want, you will be credited for contributions on the mod page.
- Provide your sample world through the Discord server. Please be sure to include pictures so the community can be excited about it!

In The Works
With "Repurpose" no longer under active development; we will be bringing some of it's more useful features to Prefab.
See this GitHub issue for more information: Add stuff from repurpose that is cool · Issue #194 · Brian-Wuest/MC-Prefab (github.com)
When Forge provides an update to 1.17 we will begin the update of this mod to 1.17. When this migration is complete; Minecraft version 1.15.X will no longer be supported. We simply do not have enough time to support more than the current and 1 previous version of Minecraft.
Feel free to use this mod in any Modpack, we just ask that you please link back to this mod page in your description.
