The Custom Recipes mod is pretty much a must have for anyone who wants to make their own mods or modified content for Minecraft. It essentially boils some down of the more complicated aspects of modding to basic text editing in wordpad or notepad. The big draw here is that the mod allows users to create other mods using text alone, without any knowledge of coding in the Java language necessary to create some interesting mods. Unlike you might expect, this does not do much to limit the user’s ability to create mods and modified content. It’s actually a very nice tool, even for veterans.
Creating recipes is relatively simple. An example given by the Custom Recipes mod author states that you can, “craft dirt into clay,” using this line: shapeless ( dirt ) > ( clay )”. That’s easy enough that anyone can understand it, even if they don’t have a lot of experience working with simple word processors. It’s also great for quickly editing a recipe or creating a new one to make an item you want to make. With a convenient alias system you can add custom blocks to the bank used for Custom Recipes, so you can essentially make anything out of anything else.
This is really the ultimate Alchemy mod in terms of what it allows the player to do in Minecraft. Because you can set recipes however you like and literally turn any block, item, piece of armor or tool into anything else in the game, this could be one of the most powerful Minecraft mods to date. The Custom Recipes mod even lets you change existing recipes, so you could cheat in a fashion to simplify the recipes for things like hoppers, powered rail and other items which can be problematic to craft.
