Signpost Mod

Signpost allows players to place down decorative posts, which can be linked to Waystones. Right clicking on the post will then teleport players to the linked Waystone. Though they can also be used for decorative purposes.

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!

Waystones

To start using the Signpost mod, you’ll need to create a Waystone. The recipe is shown below, and it requires 8 Stone and 1 Ender Pearl. After crafting it, the Waystone will look like a solid grey block.

Take this into a Stonecutter, and you can carve the Waystone block into some different designs. Mostly, it will look like some differently shaped rocks, like on the image above, where it’s shaped like a pillar.

Place the Waystone down in a location of your choosing, it’s where you’ll teleport to later on. You also need to give the Waystone a name, which happens once it’s placed down. Multiple Waystones can be placed down all throughout the world.

Signposts

The next step is to start creating Signposts. These can be made from different materials, like each Wood type, Iron and Stone. You’re also going to want to make multiple of these. Oak Signposts can be created from 1 Oak Log and 2 Signs, giving 2 Signposts in return.

Place these down in a location of your choosing. A Sign will always be added, but these can be punched off, so that you can start by having empty posts, to build height. Each time a Signpost is placed down, the Signpost Editor will pop-up, as seen below.

At the top of the Signpost Editor, you can choose a Signpost size. The grey box is a dropdown, and here you can select a Waystone that you want the Signpost to teleport too. Other options allow you to add some debris to the sign, and change the rotation. Although by default, Signposts point towards their linked Waystone.

Right click a Signpost, and you can travel to the linked Waystone. They don’t have to be linked to Waystones, it’s possible to just input your own text, which might be good for RPG/Adventure purposes.

A Sign Angle Wrench can be crafted from 3 Iron Ingots and a Sign. Use this on a Signpost, and you can manually adjust the rotation after it’s placed down. There’s also a Signpost Paint Brush, which allows you to further customize signs.

How to Install

If you haven't already, make sure to install Forge for Minecraft. It's a simple process and takes just a few minutes. Once Forge 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 preset selected. The mod will be installed and can be played with in-game.
