Visual Workbench [Forge & Fabric]
Visual Workbench makes items put into a crafting table stay inside. Breaking the block drops everything on the ground, just like you'd expect. Oh, and crafting ingredients as well as the resulting item are also rendered on top. Really fancy if you ask me!
⏩ INSTALLATION REQUIRED ON CLIENT & REQUIRED ON SERVER
⏩ REQUIRES PUZZLES LIB TO BE INSTALLED (FORGE & FABRIC)
⏩ REQUIRES FABRIC API TO BE INSTALLED (FABRIC)
⏩ REQUIRES FORGE CONFIG API PORT TO BE INSTALLED (FABRIC)
Configuration is easily possible directly from in-game using the mod menu (requires Mod Menu by Prospector to be installed on Fabric) by installing either Configured or Configured (Fabric) by MrCrayfish.
When it comes to manual configuration all files are found at
.minecraft/config, named as
MOD_ID-server.toml depending on the type of config. Not all types might exist for this mod if any.
Note that on older mod versions server configuration files are found at
.minecraft/saves/WORLD_NAME/serverconfigs, effecticely meaning they must be configured separately for each individual world.
Visual Workbench even works with crafting tables added by other mods. Support has to be manually enabled per block though. Many modded crafting tables are supported by default, those that are not can be added to a custom config file found at
.minecraft/config/visual_workbench.json (not accessible from in-game). If you add a crafting table yourself and it doesn't work it is likely just not possible to be supported by this mod.
🌟 Thanks to Daomephsta from the Fabric Discord for pointing me into the right direction for supporting modded crafting tables on Fabric.
