Whats New?

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!


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. :)


Other Important Note

This is the Fabric version of Prefab!


The Forge version of Prefab can be found here: Prefab - Forge.



Required Mods - Important!


This mod requires the following mods to also be downloaded and included in your "Mods" directory.

1. Cloth Config API (Fabric)

2. Fabric API


The following mods are also great and have integration support

1. Mod Menu


Images of mod blocks, items, and associated recipes can be found on the Wiki. The Wiki is the same as the FORGE version as I am trying to keep them in-sync.


Structure Preview - 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.


Structure Preview Known Conflicts:

1. Anything Optifine - Optifine does a lot of adjustments to the rendering system of Minecraft and interferes with the preview functionality.

2. BCLib - This is a library mod which has an API around rendering. This also appears to interfere with block rendering during preview.

In The Works


  • Updating renderer for structure preview for Prefab-Fabric (Forge update to come later), which will be more performant than the current one.
  • Fixing up the placement of paintings. Right now they only work because of some manual work done during development. This isn't ideal and it is time consuming. Finally getting around to fix this.
  • Adding Ibza style starting house @Dqu1J
  • Secret project to reduce the size of the mod. Will be looking into a proof-of-concept and if we can do it and if it works. No promises on this one.
