Meant as a sort of spiritual successor to the original Better Blocks, Better Blocks and Items Mod 1.4.7 is a collection of small modular changes to the properties of certain vanilla blocks and items. Each component is stand-alone and can be disabled or re-enabled separately from all of the others:

Better Bonemeal

  • Gives bonemeal the ability to fertilize mycellium (and more… sort-of)

Better Blaze Powder

  • Adds ability to fertilize netherwart with blaze powder

Better Charcoal

  • Gives charcoal it’s own sprite

Better Cobwebs

  • Adds ability to harvest cobwebs with shears

Better Dye

  • Dye can be used to ‘paint’ on wool blocks directly

Better Mushrooms

  • Adds ability to harvest mushroom blocks with silk touch
  • Adds mushroom blocks to the creative inventory

Better Recipes

  • Changes the recipes for cake, cookies, and powered and detector rails

Better Spawners

  • Adds monster spawners to the creative inventory
  • Adds ability to change a spawner’s type by right-clicking with mob eggs
  • Adds some additional mob eggs into the creative inventory
  • Silverfish blocks moved to misc tab of the creative inventory

Better Stairs

  • Adds eleven optional stair-types

Better Torches

  • Torches can be placed on stairs, slabs, glass, and ice (where appropriate)

Better Wood
