This is the documentation about the mod xdecor (Forum, github) by kilbith/jp ,
a fairly small and simple, but well-featured collection of items, decorations and furniture.

It is a lightweight alternative to HomeDecor and MoreBlocks.

Forks: krock/smalljoker

The workbench can cut whole blocks into several shapes (like a mini-circular saw),
and it can slowly repair items using a hammer.
The hammer gets consumed during repair. The workbench also acts as a chest for 16 items.


The cauldron can produce a soup.
A bowl is needed to get the finished soup out of the cauldron.


  • Use a water-bucket to fill the cauldron with water.

  • Wait until done, then take soup out.
