Enchanting is easily one of Minecraft player's favorite features, and people are always finding new and innovative ways to make the experience better. Some find the most optimal rates of farming XP to enchanting tools, to increase the likelihood of a given enchantment's outcome. However, that very randomness can often be a source of frustration. So, what is a player to do?

They can try out Enchanting Plus, by mssodin28, who has been maintaining and updating this complex mod since 1.3.2!

So, what does this mod do? It completely removes the random aspect of enchanting, allowing you to pick what enchantments you want! It also goes a step beyond, by including enchantments added by other mods! Only valid enchantments will show up for the tool you are trying to upgrade, further simplifying the process, and eliminating the tedious process of trying to figure out what enchantments apply to what gear. Neat!

If you want to try out the mod for yourself, drop by the mod thread by clicking here, and giving it a try!

It's about bloody time this got some spotlighting where people can see it. Cause with a mod like this, theres no reason for people to complain that enchanting is a pain in the rear. and "I don't like mods" people, are Just. Gonna. Miss. Out.

There should be a mod/plugin spotlight more often.

While it's good to see a mod spotlight, this mod destroys the point and satisfying luck of enchanting imo.

It´s a good thing they put this on the front page. But what took them so long?

Get this mod, it might change your mind. Prior to using it neither me nor the friend I play with on our server ever enchanted. Now its a race to see who can get the books necessary for a table first. Once you've spent a lot of time mining with an Efficiency V pick its hard to go back.

While this is true, it also destroys the frustrating chance of getting a bad enchantment.

This is a good mod for everyone who does not want to spend all the time and diamonds to get tools and armor with the needed enchants.

But personally I like the challenge to get perfect set of items, so I won't use this mod.

I normally don't enchant stuff, but I think this mod will change that!

But the enchants has a very low cost so this make the enchanting table too op, i don't like using it... you find the perfect set extremely fast... i think they should make the cost expensive in order to add something "hard" or just choosing one...
If you make a iron pickaxe with fortune unbreakable and efficiency for don't know... 27 levels, and 100% prob tons of diamonds etc... come easily

Never liked enchanting a whole lot, purely because Perfect "God" equipment always became a must-have in almost every server I've ever gone on. This mod just encourages that. Now, it's no longer finding someone who has one, or extreme luck. Now, it's create it yourself, because it's that simple. And anyone who can't is now a n00b.

Probably making it sound worse than it is, but this just encourages "God kit or n00b" environments, in my opinion.

Still, a new mod for the people who want it is always welcome. I just hope it doesn't invade my servers.
I am a lot like Pyrite. We both look a lot more important than we actually are.
Just act like you've read the rules, and we'll get along just fine.

Must be a slow news day if an ancient-as-hell cheat mod gets featured. What's next on Community Creations? A mod that lets you make Obsidian tools that instant-kill mobs and break blocks in one hit?

There's no such thing as a "bad enchantment". Any enchantment makes your item better than it was before. Maybe there [i]should[/i] be some bad enchantments, though, just so people will appreciate what they have when they get something that isn't the absolute best possible combination enchantments ever.

I see [i]someone[/i] really doesn't like this mod. :P

I'm personally happy for the modder, even though I don't use mods unrelated to mapmaking, hehe.

Can we get a tutorial for downloading this in 1.6.2 because I am use to getting zip files rather than the .jar. I only know to install .zip files and being able to put them in, not .jar.
Yes the moon can be orange, you'll see it when the moon has just risen.
