Versions labeled Traverse: Legacy Continued (for 1.14 and 1.15) require the library mod, MysticalLibThis is not required for 1.16.4.

 In 1.18 Terraform reforged and terrablender are required as a dependency, in 1.19 this will no longer be a requirement.


Why "Reforged"?

Traverse is continually maintained by Prospector and the Terraform team. This project aims to maintain feature parity as far as is possible, but the Forge modloader.
