Butterfly Mania

The Butterfly Mania Mod adds over 150 different butterflies to all biomes in the game. They are all gloriously animated and make the outdoors look much more real and fun.


You can catch and study the butterflies fairly easily. All you need is an empty jar(s) and a net. Jars can be made with Iron, Gold, Lapis/iron, Emerald/iron, or Diamond. And they range from easiest to break to longest lasting in that order.


The butterflies won’t despawn so you can keep them alive without worrying if they’ll disappear when you leave the game and come back. Once you’ve created a habitat, you simply need to right-click your full jar on the  ground to release the butterfly.


Alternatively you can pin dead ones up in frames to hang them on your wall.


This mod also comes with a craftable encyclopedia that contains important information on the butterflies you catch. The information is based off of actual butterfly entomology so you can really learn a lot from this mod too! Rare butterflies can even be traded with Villagers for diamonds.


Overall this mod is very detailed and informative. If you have any interest in Entomology or if you just like butterflies, you’ll have a lot of fun with this mod.

    • You may need to force it to run Java 7. You might be running Java 6 instead.

  2. This is a great mod but a life cycle would make it even better.
