Repurposed Structures mod 1.16.3/1.15.2 (Forge) for minecraft is a mod about taking existing vanilla features and structures and creating new variants or modifications to them! Originally, most of the structures and features in this mod was actually made for my Ultra Amplified Dimension mod. but then I realized these features and structures would look great in the Overworld as well so I decided to take those structures and features and split them into their own mod. This mod!
Currently, this mod creates a Nether Fortresses using Stonebrick blocks and spawns it in Jungles, Dungeons and Mineshafts now has more variants to match whatever biome they are in, Strongholds has a configurable size and has more Silverfish spawners, Giant Tree/Spruce Taiga Hills biomes has giant ore filled boulders that could have Diamond ore if you are extremely lucky, Taiga Mountain biomes now has tiny boulders, Swamps now has a new 2×2 swamp-like tree, and several new Desert Well variations were made for other biomes!
You can use this mod in a modpack or download and modify the source code. It is all under MIT License so you can do whatever you want! Also, be sure to check out the images page for several screenshots of what the world looks like! And also, the section below this one talks about how to configure everything as I want players to have the ability to change things to their preferences.
HOW CAN I CONFIGURE THIS MOD?
To reach this mod’s config file, go into the config folder that is above the mods folder and edit the repurposed_structures-common.toml file to change the config. Then exit/restart Minecraft for all changes to take effect. Do note that the config will affect this mod for all worlds so keep that in mind.
Right now, there are lots of config options. The big ones that you may be interested in are the add____ToModdedBiomes config entries. Turning this on will make the config add the features or structures to any modded biomes with the correct category. For example, if you turn on addMineshaftsToModdedBiomes and you have a mod that adds a new kind of Desert biome in any dimension, then that biome will now spawn Desert themed Mineshafts in it!
For Dungeons, Wells, and Mineshafts, you can turn on and off each specific biome variant or change their overall spawnrates as well. For Mineshafts, you can turn on or off the spawning of chests too if you want to stop chests from spawning for whatever reason.
The config for Jungle Fortresses is fairly straightforward. You can change their spawnrate, how much Stonebrick blocks are infested with SIlverfish, turn on or off the creation of Silverfish spawners, or disable the creation of loot chests. Not much else to it!
For Strongholds, the config lets you change the size of the Stronghold, their spawnrates, how many Stonebrick blocks are infested with Silverfish, turn on or off the additional Silverfish spawners, or disable the creation of loot chests.
And lastly, the rest of the features (2×2 swamp tree and boulders) can be enabled/disabled individually.
