Description

Cover Image

Tinkers' Things is an addon for Tinkers' Construct that contains no Java code (if you do not believe me, check the GitHub source). This is made possible through the mod Json Things, which allows you do add custom items, fluids, blocks, creative tabs, and harvest tiers through JSON files.

This mod serves two purposes:

  • It is a fully playable survival friendly Tinkers' Construct addon adding a lot of new tools and armor to the mod.
  • It serves as an example for those wishing to create Tinkers' Construct datapacks and no-Java code addons.

Playable Addon

This addon adds many features, including

  • Chisels
  • Shovels
  • Halberds
  • Blowpipes
  • Shortbows
  • Hematite tool material
  • Large Repair Kits
  • Laminar Armor and Shields
  • Silky Sacks for storing items

For more info, check the image descriptions on the gallery tab.

To use this mod, you need at least Tinkers' Construct build 3.6.1. You also need to install Json Things. Assuming you have both, you can install this mod like any Java mod.
