Twilight Forest Mod

The Twilight Forest mod is a very interesting mod that adds a new realm to Minecraft. It can be reached very similarly to the nether but it encompasses an entire world forever in a state of twilight and surrounded completely by immense trees and giant mushrooms. There are new and mysterious places to explore and goodies to plunder. It is very much like an alternate dimension compared to the overworld and gives the player plenty of fresh experiences to enhance the overall Minecraft adventure aspect.

The new realm adds a slew of features to make the game that much more enthralling. This new world bathed in the glow of stars gives plenty of new areas to discover like densely guarded dungeons. They encapsulate an enchanting fairytale atmosphere with unique and fanciful designs and architecture. This mod even adds new mobs and bosses to further immerse you in a new environment. You will likely come across many new creatures like rams, deer, and fireflies that fit so well in such a dreamlike world. There are also abandoned castles with new mobs and the bosses within them will vary in difficulty between each structure. Each castle is like an above ground dungeon with many different rooms and floors to explore and plunder. There is simply so much more to discover both above and below ground with this mod and each biome or castle or dungeon will be an exhilarating new experience.

And, just like in the Nether, glowstone grows here naturally. So the twilight forest should be a relatively easier way to obtain glowstone compared to the unknown dangers lurking in the Nether wherever your portal happens to spawn there. There aren’t nearly as many hostile monsters to subdue here so you can explore and collect items without worrying too much about your safety.

The portal is very easy to create as well. The minimum size requirement is simply a 2x2x1 hole in the ground surrounded by flowers and filled with water. The frame can be made in any shape and size you want so long as the minimum size is met and it can be made from any ground type block like grass, dirt, podzol, or mycelium. You can also substitute flowers with any similar items like mushrooms or leaves or any other plants. Then once your portal frame is set, all you need to do then is toss in a single diamond and the portal will generate. You will know it worked when the water changes to the standard purple portal texture. You can style the portal any way you like as well to fit the twilight forest themes or whatever fits your style and as long as you’ve followed the minimum steps to generate it then all there is to do next is hop in!


There’s a great deal of items, environments and enemies to explore in this mod so it’s well worth a look especially if you run a multiplayer server. This mod significantly adds to the dynamic of exploration to the game and makes it feel like playing Minecraft for the first time. You’ll find new ores to make tools and weapons and armor each with unique traits and abilities.


And one more useful and interesting block is the “Uncrafting Table”. This block allows you to take any crafted item and gives you its contained items needed to craft the original item. Unfortunately it only works on undamaged items so you won’t be able to reclaim parts on anything that has been used. But it also works to re-craft your items so you won’t need to have both an uncrafting and a crafting table.

  2. Easily the best mod I’ve ever played. Ars Magical was a close second, but this mod is by far the best in town :3

  3. Everytime I try to jump into the portal, it crashes. Even though I have removed tones of other mods, it’s still not working. I’m familiar to this with other mods, but with tme it usualy just takes a few tries and attempts before it fixes. This time – it just doesn’t work for me.

  5. The Uncrafting Table no longer works. In Infinity Evolution 1.9.0 it worked just fine, but in 2.1.0 Infinity Evolution, it takes your experience, but will not give up materials, even if the materials are not highlighted in red. Just thought people should know.

    • Only the red flower creates a portal to the strange variation of the nether with twilight mobs

      May 16, 2017
      • Or roses in an older version of the game

  9. I’m looking for a mod (1.12.2) that allows me to capture the mobs in the Twilight Forest and bring them back, as is (most just make boars pigs, crows chickens, ect.) Any suggestions? Thank you!

  11. I can’t get a portal to open. I just installed the mod and it’s my only one currently, so I know it isn’t conflicting. I have the proper version of forge installed. Has anyone else had this problem and figured out how to fix it?
