About my Minecraft mods

Here are my mod projects:

  • Basket CaseReleased. Make wicker baskets from bark strips and twigs. Wicker baskets are a convenient form of portable storage and add a rustic aesthetic to your world.
  • Primal LibIn progress. A library mod to help me release mods faster. Future releases of Basket Case and any other mods I create will rely on Primal Lib.
  • Darkest Before DawnIn progress. This mod will add more difficulty and realism around making fire.
  • PrimalcraftAbandoned. Primalcraft was a mod about extreme survival in the stone age. I have abandoned this mod but am planning to release some of its features as separate mods. Basket Case is the first of these.

I’ve been modding Minecraft for over four years. It started with my son. We bought Minecraft for him, and one day he convinced me to play. I was instantly hooked. Soon I became bored with the vanilla game and started using mods. Soon after that, I became frustrated that none of the mods did things the way I wanted. So I started learning Java so I could make my own mod. I called it Primalcraft.

After a couple of years working on Primalcraft, I realized that it would never be finished enough to release. I was trying to do too much. Many features were incomplete or poorly done, and I didn’t have enough time to finish it all. So I picked out one idea and finished it. That was Basket Case.

I would like to release many of the other ideas I initially tried to implement in Primalcraft. We’ll see how it goes.
