There are a number of mods which perform the same function as the EXP Translation mod, and to be honest, some of them even do it better. But many of those mods which give more to the player also ask more by forcing them to fill out long config files, figure out complicated recipes and keep the mod’s website handy in case they need to look anything up on the fly. This mod is fairly basic, but sometimes the simplest things are really some of the best. Some players are bound to like the higher level of function in other, similar mods, but this one works just fine too.
Basically the EXP Translation mod allows players to store earned experience in bottles, almost like the bottle o’ enchanting item which can be spawned through the item interface on Creative mode. The mod only adds two items – the EXP Translation table where you store your experience points and the empty vials you dump the points into. These can be traded with other players or simply kept in a safe place, like an ender chest. Unlike those enchanting bottles mentioned previously, you also need to be at the EXP Translation table to get your points back from these vials, so keep that in mind.
While they aren’t as flexible as the bottle o’ enchanting items, you can legitimately craft these exp vials and distribute them among your friends or store them for use in enchanting and repairing items. Filling a ton of vials is easy too; you can usually do that by sitting at the bottom of a spawner for a while and just collecting the exp orbs dropped by mobs as they die. As far as utility mods go, this is one of the simplest and most useful mods available. It’s definitely worth a try if you’re sick of dying and losing all your experience points when you do.
