DESM for now adds only basic stuff such as new food items, materials, and crafting recipes (stuff you could've modded in yourself pretty easily). Although if certain mods I feel would enhance survival mode in minecraft don't already exist or fail to meet my standards, I will add them to this mod myself. I will need a couple weeks or days of studying how to mod with forge since I am new to java and minecraft modding.
-Better NPCs (like MCA but involving more strategy)
-Backpacks (expandable backpacks is pretty good so I won't prioritize this much)
-more mobs and drops
-loom for converting wool into string (inspired by wheels mod, which is outdated)
-maybe new crops (probably not unless I can think of something special for them)
