This mod makes XP Bottles drop more XP, making them more worthwhile to buy from villagers.
In vanilla Minecraft, the amount of XP you get from an XP Bottle is way too low. They're simply not worth buying for 3-11 emeralds. You can too easily get more XP for your effort doing other things. I made this mod to fix this imbalance and make XP bottles worthwhile spending emeralds on.
With this mod, the average amount of XP produced by each XP Bottle is increased by 3, 6, or 9 times, depending on your preference. You can set the worthwhileness level to Low, Medium or High in the configuration options.
This mod doesn't make XP Bottles drop massive amounts of XP, it just makes them drop more... hopefully just enough to make them Worthwhile!
