Imagine stepping through a portal into a twilight realm, filled with trees as far as they eye can see.  Breathtaking vistas and amazing discoveries await you around every corner.  But beware!  Not all denizens of the forest respond to your intrusion lightly.

Updated March 10th to version 2.0.3.  This version supports Minecraft 1.7.2.  It is recommended that you start a new save for this new version, as the map generation has changed.  Some of the new plants introduced in Minecraft 1.7.2 should appear in the Twilight Forest now, as well as other updates.  Version 2.0.3 adds better thorns to the thornlands biome, and features several other bug fixes.

Download v2.0.3 (Adfly link) - universal mod package for Minecraft 1.7.2. Requires Minecraft Forge or higher.  Uploaded 3/10/14

Looking for a version for 1.6.4?  Here's that version:

Getting There:
To make a portal to the Twilight Forest, make a 2 x 2 shallow pool (4 squares) of water in a grassy area, and surround it entirely with natural stuff.  Flowers, mushrooms or tall grass.  Then throw a diamond in (with the "Q" key, by default) and stand back!

It should look a little like this:

I had an idea like this, however this is much better!

I don't suppose your taking suggestions, by any chance?

I can also make skins... although they're not that good.

Sounds like an EXCELLENT Mod off for a good start, will keep following you on this. Good, creative ideas, a good atmosphere, etc. Just imagining what could be done with this :) Congratulations and thanks!

That's definitely interesting. I'll have to take a look; even if it is quite unfinished the generator is decent right now. What are your plans for ores or other valuable materials?

Looks cool so far! With all the torches on the trees, getting lost is going to be an issue for those of us that look for our lighted paths on the way back to shelter. Giant fireflies are going to be such an awesome mob!

When I try to run this mod, my Minecraft crashes and I get this error report.
java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: mod_TwilightForest : Unsupported major.minor version 51.0
(I only posted the first line because most of the time, it is the only useful part of the log.)

Self-expressive people put quiz results here. Advocative people put promotions here. Classy people put their own 'unique' image, video, or quote.
I am none of those, so I wrote this.
