Marvelous Materials Mod 1.12.2 (World of Color) for Minecraft 1.12.2

Updated: Nov 7, 2018 | 97 views |

Marvelous Materials Mod 1.12.2 adds several types decorative building blocks, a new biome, and new crafting items to the game.


The biome, which is called The Ornamental Forest, is full of colorful trees. The trees vary in sizes, and some have vines that naturally grow on them. Throughout the forest, glowing mushrooms can be found growing on trees. This helps to light your way while you’re exploring the forest. The tree leaves can be harvested for their blossoms, using a special pair of pruning shears. The blossoms can then be pulverized into pigment, using a Mortar & Pestle, or they can be used as decorations to place in special vases.

The pigments created from the blossoms are used to color clay for bricks, or to make stain for colored wood blocks. There are several new gemstone ores, which drop chunks of gemstone that can be broken up into fragments using the Mortar & Pestle. The fragments can then be used with grout to create decorative tile blocks.

The trees can be harvested for saplings, the same way as normal trees can be. There are also 2 new potions, which require essences that can be found by chopping wood, harvesting blossoms, or mining ores. The potions give you double drops on wood logs and ores, or give you the ability to harvest blossoms without pruning shears.
