Xie’s Mods is the core of my farming mod, plus the other mods that are to follow. It’s comprised of a number of flexible classes that extend the functionality of vanilla blocks and items, and a JSON parser that reads in one or more configuration files and turns them into in-game content. The benefit of doing things this way should be apparent – modifying content no longer requires me to recompile and re-release the mod, all you need to do is download a new configuration file, or even edit it yourself. Better yet, additional content may also be added with extra configuration files and images!



  • Install Minecraft Forge.
  • Download the mod .zip file from the link at the bottom of this post
  • Put the .zip into your /.minecraft/mods folder. Do not unzip it. Then rename it to Xie.zip
  • Done.


New Stuff:

  • added tortillas, tacos, burritos and corn chips
  • added optional Foraging Rod item crafted from stick and a diamond. Lasts longer and performs better than foraging stick. Can forage almost any new seed type from tall grass. Rename “_foragingrod.xie” to “foragingrod.xie” to enable.
