There are literally hundreds of Minecraft mods that specifically add new items and blocks to the game. In fact, there are probably thousands of such mods.
MiscItemsAndBlocks is one of the few mods that is actually worth your time. It has hundreds of fans and a dedicated developer by the name of tm1990.
Here’s how tm1990 describes his mod:
“MiscItemsAndBlocks is a mod which adds a lot of random and some useful blocks and items to the game. The full list of blocks, items and recipes for them can be found on the minecraft forum page.”
Here are some of the most notable blocks, items, and recipes added to the game through this mod:
-XP Storage Block: Does exactly what you think it does
-Trash Bin: Use the Trash Bin to quickly delete your unwanted items and blocks
-Disarm Trap: No, this item doesn’t disarm a trap. Instead, it disarms any enemies that walk over it. When an enemy walks over the trap, they’ll drop all of their inventory.
-Silver Ore: Silver Ore is found underground and can only be mined with a Diamond Pickaxe. You can use Silver Ore to smelt a Silver ingot, which you’ll need for a lot of the new recipes.
-Cardboard Box: Cheaper than a chest but stores your items in a similar way.
-Worktable: An expanded version of the vanilla Crafting Table; stores the recipe and uses items from your inventory when available to craft more items
-Power Cable: Transfers power from one end of the cord to another. You can use this to connect power generating blocks to another new item, the Charger, or connect it to any machines that accept power.
-Mill: Turns your wheat into flour. Milling is meant to be a manual process, so you won’t be able to use it with any factory setups or manual item transport methods.
-Other items include Dice, Game Pieces, Pillars, Mills, Orange trees, Ovens, Windmills, Coal generators, and more!
