This mod has moved and is now under new management with my official permission. Both the old and new versions of the mod will be hosted on CurseForge from now on. The new project page is over here. I am leaving the old post in the spoiler below for posterity's sake.
HELLO people! Welcome to the Rediscovered Mod! The purpose of this modification is to add in anything that has been unused, unimplemented, or removed from Minecraft's files! It covers a wide variety of topics that could have made it into the vanilla game but sadly, did not. In fact, that is one of my goals for this mod! To possibly see some of these features added into the vanilla game!
A note about Changed Textures, Pocket Edition and Minecraft 2.0:
Keep in mind that while I am a fan of keeping these features as close to their original purpose as possible, I will still be adding my own flare to them in order to make the mod more enjoyable. Therefore some of the things in this mod aren't exactly implemented the same way they were intended to be. This is to keep things like the Sky Dimension from becoming something pointless that no one would actually use. Think of it this way, would you rather have a new fun Mario Bros. game or Museum Simulator 2014?
Tables, Chairs and Lecterns
Unused Potion Effects
Unused and Removed Flowers
(From left to right: Paeonia, Peony Bush, Empty Peony Bush, Empty Rose Bush, Rose Bush, Rose)
-These creatures were going to be added in the 2010 Halloween Update, but Notch never got around to it and only ended up adding the item. In this mod, you can find them swimming around in oceans and lakes. When killed, they drop one fish item. Can be used as a more aggressive way to fish or simply for an atmospheric detail.
-These horses are still in the games code, but do nothing and can only be found by spawning them in. This mod revamps them to spawn at night, be hostile to the player, and attack living horses, If you plan on taming a horse, make sure to protect it from these monsters.
-Unused in Minecraft's code, these can only be spawned in with commands. In this mod, they appear in the Sky Dimension (More further down) as hostile mobs. They drop 1-2 golden apples when killed and very rarely a super golden apple (the one made with gold blocks).
Pigmen and Green Villager
-Pigmen were originally going to inhabit the vanilla villages until someone at Mojang decided cavemen squidwards were better. The Green Villager is a default version of normal villagers and does not normally spawn. In this mod, Pigmen spawn in their own Pigmen villages in the Sky Dimension (more on that further down) and are holding a Green villager hostage! If you are able to get past the Pigmen guards, you can make EXCELLENT trades (They generally trade for rubies (see below), similar to how Villagers trade for emeralds.)
Rana, Steve, Black Steve, and Beast Boy
-Made by Dock who used to work at Mojang, these were random mobs that he added for god knows what reason. In this mod, one of each spawns in Pigmen villages in the Sky Dimension (More on that further down) and are all hostile except for Rana. Steve, Black Steve, and Beast Boy drop an assortment of items, from feathers, to gunpowder, to string, to very rarely flint and steel. Rana drops 1-2 apples
-Mentioned by members of the Mojang team, this red version of the ender dragon would have spawned in the Overworld and would be tamable. In this mod, they spawn in the Sky Dimension in order to cause havoc and make it a bit more interesting (More on that below). They drop 1 Red Dragon egg which can be used to summon another dragon. For the future I have plans to make the hatched red dragon tamed.
(Ruby compared to emerald)
There is a random chance when you sleep in a bed (changeable in the config) that you will be sent to the Sky Dimension. When you do, you will appear in a small house with a bed, chair, table, and fireplace. Once in the dimension, you can sleep or fall off the edge to return to the bed you slept at in the overworld. But you probably don't want to do this on your first visit. Try to find a pigmen village. If you do and manage to fight your way to a loot chest hidden within it, you can find a Dream Pillow. It looks like this: and can be used in the overworld on a bed to directly send you back to the sky dimension at any time.
Be warned though: Giants and Red dragons spawn throughout the Sky Dimension to hunt you down. It is not as safe a place as it may seem.
