Essential Features Mod 1.16.5/1.15.2 (New Decorative Blocks and Items)

Essential Features Mod for Minecraft

The author of Essential Features mod tried to diversify vanilla Minecraft 1.16.5/1.15.2/1.14.4 by adding blocks that were so lacking. There are quite a lot of innovations – new music in the ocean, 2 new records, new lamps, a portable music unit and a lot more. You can look at crafting recipes in JEI.


  • The Block Breaker: give it redstone power and it breaks the block in front. Perfect for automating cobblestone factories.
  • The Block Placer: like a dispenser, but it places blocks in front of it, rather than shooting out items.
  • Stained redstone lamps and torches: give your circuits some colour.
  • The Redstone Rod: an End Rod which attracts lightning.
  • The Viewed Block – when you look at it, it emits redstone.
  • Cereal: gives you 6 food and 1 saturation.
  • Redstone rod sword and arrows: strike your enemies with lightning!
  • Iron-fortified cereal: like regular cereal, but gives you resistance and regeneration. Made with cereal and a lot of iron.
  • Slate: A new type of stone found near the surface. You can layer it like snow.
  • Spike blocks: When you walk through them, you get damaged and slowed down. Perfect for traps.
  • Blaze Block: This block, made with 4 blaze powder, is like a very energetic magma block.
  • Purpur and Nether Brick doors: let your other-dimensional bases have some fitting doors.
  • Two new records: Scarlet and Lo-Fi.
  • A portable jukebox, so you can take your music with you. Find it in dungeons, abandoned mineshafts, nether fortresses and temples.
