Repurposed Structures Mod

Like the name suggests, this mod is going to take all of Minecrafts structures, and repurpose them. Most structures now have new variants depending on their biome, and even dimension. Structures are no longer overworld exclusive either, as structures like End Cities and Nether Fortress’ can now be found in other dimensions.

This is one of many of our Mod Wikis, here at Minecraft Guides. If you're interesting in finding out about more of Minecraft's Best Mods, then check out our dedicated section! We allow you to sort by Forge, Fabric, Minecraft Version and Genre!

Overworld Changes

First, lets take a look at structures that have been brought from the Nether and End, and imported into the Overworld. When you come across these structures, they’ll look completely different, so they blend in with their surroundings.

Deep underground, Bastion Remnants from the Nether can be found. Though instead of containing Piglins, they’ll be filled with creatures like Skeletons instead. They’re also made from Deepslate, instead of Basalt.

Cities, which previously spawned in the End can also be found in the Overworld. These are now made from Wood, and even contain Villagers who live within them. Overworld Cities look really cool, as they reach high into the sky.

Finally, the Nether Fortress can be found spawning throughout Jungles. They actually blend in nicely, and feel like a nice addition. Although they’re now made from Stone Bricks instead, and don’t contain any Blaze.

Repurposed Structures also takes lots of existing structures, and gives them a makeover so that they’re more unique. This treatment is given to the Igloo, Mineshaft, Outpost, Monument, Pyramid, Ruins, Village and Witch Hut.

Mechanically, these structures are the exact same. Only the blocks they’re made from will be changed. It’s worth nothing that Repurposed Structures doesn’t include any new blocks either, as it makes use of only Vanilla ones.

The complete list of changes to the Overworld are as follows:

  1. Igloo: Grassy, Mangrove, Mushroom, Stone.
  2. Mansion: Birch, Desert, Jungle, Mangrove, Oak, Savanna, Snowy, Taiga.
  3. Mineshaft: Birch, Crimson, Dark Forest, Desert, Icy, Jungle, Ocean, Savanna, Stone, Swamp, Taiga.
  4. Monument: Desert, Icy, Jungle.
  5. Outpost: Badlands, Birch, Crimson, Desert, Giant Tree Taiga, Icy, Jungle, Mangrove, Oak, Snowy, Taiga, Badlands, Dark Forest.
  6. Pyramid: Flower Forest, Giant Tree Taiga, Icy, Jungle, Mushroom, Ocean, Snowy.
  7. Ruins: Cold, Hot, Icy, Warm.
  8. Temple: Ocean, Taiga.
  9. Village: Badlands, Birch, Dark Forest, Giant Taiga, Jungle, Mountains, Mushroom, Oak, Ocean, Swamp.
  10. Witch Hut: Birch, Dark Forest, Oak, Mangrove, Taiga, Giant Tree Taiga.

Nether Changes

Structures that usually generate in the Overworld and End can now be found in the Nether. As you explore, expect to find structures that have had their design changed, to match the theme of the Nether.

How to Install

If you haven't already, make sure to install Forge, or install Fabric for Minecraft. It's a simple process and takes just a few minutes. Once your mod loader is installed:
  1. Download the mod for your Minecraft Version. It will be a .JAR file.
  2. Take this file, and place it in the 'mods' folder of your Minecraft directory. If this folder doesn't exist, create it. The easiest way to access your Minecraft directory is opening the game, going to Resource Packs and pressing the 'Open Resource Pack Folder' button.
  3. Once it's inside the mods folder, run Minecraft with the Forge or Fabric preset selected. The mod will be installed and can be played with in-game.
