Modular Tools 1.9,1.8.9 introduces a self-balancing mechanic, allowing you to customize your tools using a compromise between upgrades and downgrades. Each upgrade and downgrade has a number of points associated with it, and you must “balance the equation” for the tool to work. Shift+Right-Click the tool to access the GUI. There is a number in the center of the GUI that will tell you if the points are too high or too low.

Current Tools:

  • Modular Pickaxe
  • Modular Sword
  • Modular Ring (movement capabilites)

Go to (Quick links)

Current Modifiers:

  • Upgrades
    • Speed: Increases mining speed in the pickaxe, and movement speed in the ring
    • Size: Increases mining area in the pickaxe, and attack area in the sword. 3×3 or 5×5
    • Harvest: Increases mining harvest level
    • Light: If there are torches next to your pickaxe, it will place them on right-click. If not, it will place temporary lights that will disappear after about 10 seconds.
    • Depth: Increases depth of mined blocks
    • Trash: Will void any drops that appear in the “Trash Filters” slots
    • Stone: When mining smooth stone, smooth stone will drop instead of cobblestone
    • Vein: Will mine entire veins of ore. Only works on blocks with an unlocalized name starting with “ore”
    • Drops: Increases drop rate from mining in the pickaxe, and from mobs in the sword (like Fortune/Looting)
    • Attack: Increases the attack strength of the sword
    • Behead: Increases the chance for Vanilla mobs to drop their heads by 20% each
    • Flight: Adds time-limited flight and a cooldown. Timer resets every time you touch the ground
    • Permanent Flight: Adds permanent flight without a timer/cooldown
    • Step: Gives step-assist
    • Hotbar: Allows the ring to work anywhere on your hotbar instead of in your hand
  • Downgrades
    • Harvest: Reduces mining harvest level
    • Speed: Reduces mining speed in the pickaxe, and movement speed with the ring
    • Hunger: Makes mining, attacking with sword, or moving with the ring cost additional hunger
    • Expensive: No negative effects, just an expensive recipe
    • Very Expensive: No negative effects, just a very expensive recipe
    • Damage: Using the tool costs extra durability
    • Slowness: Induces the Slowness effect on use
    • Experience: Moving with the ring slowly drains experience


  • Will there be more modifiers and tools soon?
    • Yup. I plan to add more modifiers, tools, and possibly change balance (points, recipes, etc.). If you have some suggestions, let me know!
  • Is there an easy way to disable AoE mining? (Size Upgrade, Depth Upgrade, Vein Upgrade, etc.)
    • Sneaking will disable all AoE mining effects.
  • Why can’t I use Speed Upgrades and Speed downgrades at the same time?
    • Some modifiers cannot be used together, generally ones with opposite effects.
  • How do I repair my tools? I’m worried about losing all my modifiers when they break.
    • When the tool breaks, you do not lose it. It just becomes unusable until it is repaired. To repair it, put it into a crafting grid with Iron Ingots.
