This project is abandoned and its default file will likely not work with the most recent version of Minecraft. Whether this project is out of date or its author has marked it as abandoned, this project is no longer maintained.

Wish you could make huge wheat fields easily and fast? Or wide roads by just walking? Or maybe you have hard time finding spawners or slime chunks?
This mod can do that for you!

Introducing Useful Tools: Early game items for your building and farming needs.


This mod contains tools that help with mentioned above and more.

Some of the newer tools added are only available for the 1.15.2 minecraft version. (I might add these later for 1.12.2 minecraft version of the mod, if there's demand for it.)
