Implements scrapped content and features back into Minecraft.

📚 Summary

Welcome to the Rediscovered Mod! The purpose of this modification is to add in anything that has been unused, unimplemented, or removed from Minecraft’s files! It covers a wide variety of topics that could have made it into the vanilla game but sadly, did not. In fact, that is one of the goals for this mod! To possibly see some of these features added into the vanilla game!

🎨 Programmer Art

Programmer Art

If you are using the 1.14.4 and above version(s) of our ports, the textures have most likely been updated to fit with Minecraft. Programmer art is now built-in the mod, no extra installation required, unless you are on an older version:



☁️ Skylands Dimension


The Sky Dimension was a planned dimension in Minecraft, intended to be the opposite of the Nether. Using the buffet world generation option, a player can generate a partial recreation of the original concept. – from Minecraft Wiki, Java Edition mentioned features/Sky dimension

In this mod, for the Sky dimension, it is using the same noise generator as it did in Minecraft beta, so the World Generation is exactly identical as it would’ve been.

🛏️ How do I get to this dimension?


You can get to the Sky dimension by crafting a Dream Pillow and then right clicking on a Minecraft bed at night. You can craft this by putting Glowstone Dust in the middle and then surrounding Blue Wool all around it.

💎 Ruby


Rubies were changed to emeralds because Dinnerbone is red-green colorblind and couldn’t tell the difference between redstone ore and ruby ore, so it was changed at the last minute. Rubies generate in the overworld. It’s rarity is similar to gold ore but is in smaller veins.

💱 Trading with Pigman


You can trade with the Pigman in the Sky dimension. Their trades are designed to be more fair and you can obtain classic wool colors.

👺 Mobs


The first four mobs below are MD3 Models. On Notch’s blog, he talked about their design on this post. You can also find information about those Steve, Black Steve, Beast Boy, and Rana on this section of Minecraft Wiki. All of the mobs you see below were either in the game at some point during development, completely scrapped, removed, or was planned but never happened. For more information about the mobs, please check out the mobs page.

⛰️ Blocks


This mod adds back removed blocks such as the Crying Obsidian, Gears, Dirt Slabs, Tables, Chairs, Locked Chests, Spikes, Ruby Ore, Ruby Block, Red Dragon Egg and Scarecrow. You can also see a cherry tree in the background that generate naturally in the Skylands.

⛏️ Items


From left to right, you can see the Cherry Sapling, Gears, Rose, Paeonia, Empty Rose Bush, Empty Peony Bush, Dream Pillow, Ruby, Fish, Cookied Fish, Fish Bucket, Scarecrow, Studded Armor, Purple Arrow, Singular Quiver, Chestplates with Quivers, and the Calm4 Music Disc by Notch

🤷 FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

Can you add the old textures?

We have no plans to add old Minecraft textures, however we do plan to make the Programmer Art resourcepack available soon. If you want classic textures for the game, consider using our Legacy Default pack.

Can you please update to [insert future version here]?

Yeah, we most likely already are doing it as you’re typing that question. If you’re that hyped to see the mod on a future version, come join our Discord and follow updates on the project’s GitLab. You’ll definitely find out there.

Zombie and Skeleton Horses are already in the game?!

The mod is changing the behavior of how these two mobs work. The Zombie Horse is a completly unused mob in the game. While, skeleton horses are implemented in a different way. The mod allows them to spawn naturally during the night. They are hostile against players and other horses. There are no plans for mobs to mount these horses in this way. Except, soon for Zombie Raids in villages, they will spawn tamed with a Zombie on top of them. You will be able to obtain those after killing the Zombie.

Can you downport it to Minecraft (any version below 1.14.4)?

No. We maintain a lot of mods and it takes a lot of time and effort to add content, and bug fixes across multiple versions of Minecraft. We also encourage players and mod developers to update to the latest version so that we have the amazing new content that vanilla has to offer along with the many bug fixes and stability with Vanilla and Forge. As of December 10th, 2019, We are only supporting Minecraft 1.14.4 and always the latest version of Minecraft.

Is new content coming to older versions? (1.7.10, 1.8.8)?

No. To encourage players to update their games, we add new content to the latest version of the mod on the latest version of Minecraft. We are only supporting Minecraft 1.14.4 and always the latest version of Minecraft.

Where can I request features or report bugs?

For suggestions, ideas, feedback you can always make a comment here on CurseForge or come into our Discord and talk about it. If you want to report a bug, please report it on the issue tracker. If you are unable to for some reason, you can leave it in the comments, but there is a higher chance of your comment being lost and forgotten about rather than it being on the issue tracker.

Can you add Bedrock/April Fools features?

No. This is a mod for and about the Java Edition of Minecraft, so Bedrock features will not be added. The April Fools joke features are exactly that, joke features. This was one of the original wishes for the mod. Please do not ask about adding these features, as they will not be added, or even considered.

Can you add config options to disable specific content?

No. We have no plans to allow content to be specifically cherry picked, the mod is meant to be played as a whole, not in pieces. If for some reason you still want to go against that, there are mods like Bad Mobs that allow you to disable mobs.
