Vanilla Boom is a mod that aims to expand the vanilla experience. All things that are added, block, items, mobs and structures, are in the spirit of the vanilla game. This is a mod for those of you who love the essence of vanilla, but are just looking to add that little extra. Blocks that should be in the game but aren't, missing items and extra features to make the game a little bit more appealing, here they all are.

I am looking for Texture Artists and Beta Testers to help me grow this mod into something bigger and better. Anyone with art skills who would like to contribute (Block, Item, Entity textures and more) are more than welcome to contact me via a DM right here or join the Vanilla Boom Discord: https://discord.gg/n5a4aVx4. You can also send me a message on Discord (Phrille#5885). Otherwise, if you would like to test this mod for bugs and improvements and you have lots of suggestions for new features or tweaks, contact me and apply to be a Beta Tester. You will gain access to unreleased versions of the mod and test new features to see how well they work. Thank you everybody for your support!
Q: Can I help with the code/textures?
A: If you want to contribute in some way, send me a message here or on Discord (https://discord.gg/n5a4aVx4 or at Phrille#5885).
Q: Is this the same mod as Minecraft Boom?
A: Yes. The mod changed its name and modid for copyright reasons.
Q: Is there a config file?
A: Yes, for the versions of 1.12.2 and 1.16.4-forward a config file is available.
Q: Why is the config file messy/unorganized?
A: Delete the file and regenerate it by loading Minecraft. Remember to change back to your settings in the new config file.
Q: Can you add a config option for disabling overwriting vanilla drops?
A: No. However, this can still be disabled using datapacks. All drops by blocks and entities are meant to be handled by loot tables, not config options. If you want to change how Vanilla boom modifies vanilla loot tables you need to look at "/data/vanillaboom/loot_modifiers/" and "/data/vanillaboom/loot_tables/vanilla/". These .jsons can be overwritten with a custom datapack to disable this feature.
