Description


Cottage Witch, a vanilla+ Minecraft modpack focused on the magic of exploration, nature, cooking, crafting, and the everyday.

Cottage magic is a type of modern, contemporary eclectic witchcraft practice that utilizes domestic magic. It emphasizes the magic in everyday things such as cooking, crafting, and decorating one's surroundings. Cottage Witch has a similar emphasis, expanding on the mechanics of cookery, artisanry, and decor - and, of course, magic. It enhances the natural world that your adventures take place in, both by overhauling biomes and wildlife.

 

It intends to mostly preserve the vanilla progression, augmenting it with balanced items and new mechanics. The pack also provides Quests to lead you through much of the content, making it suitable for those who are new to mods, or who prefer not to consult a wiki in another tab. You can find additional information about the pack and its mechanics in the Pages tab of this project.

 

Also check out Recast, a lighter remix of the original pack!

 

The 1.18 version of Cottage Witch is no longer supported.

 An ingame Minecraft screenshot of a cozy house. Text reads: "Plenty of structures to find. Dotting the landscape are houses, towers filled with enemies, deep dungeons, or beautiful cottages.

Feel free to comment with your own!

 

This modpack was designed to be used on mid-range computers, and 4-6gb of RAM is suggested. This modpack is also NOT compatible with OptiFine, but it includes Oculus if you want to use Shaders! All screenshots are taken using Complementary Shaders v4 - which is my favourite shader pack, and I highly recommend it!
