Dynamically replaces whole categories of recipes with (subjectively) improved ones. Data driven.

Works server-side and in single player.

Recipe Reshaper allows you to replace groups of recipes with new ones based on the originals.

This is done using data packs that add recipe_reshapers, and the mod has several already builtin:


Replaces traditional slab and stair recipes with ones that fit in the 2x2 inventory crafting grid and let you freely craft stairs, slabs and blocks into one another.

left: vanilla 3x3 grid recipes for cut copper stairs and slabs; right: reshaped 2x2 grid recipes for cut copper stairs and slabs and for crafting them into each other and into blocks


Adds 2x2 recipes to craft logs directly into slabs and stairs with 4 times the output of plank recipes.

recipe for 2 oak logs to 16 oak slabs
recipe for 3 oak logs to 16 oak stairs


Changes recipes for glass panes and iron bars to be 2x2 instead of 3x2 and output 10 instead of 16.

left: vanilla 3x3 grid recipe for glass panes; right: reshaped 2x2 grid recipe for glass panes


Changes sign recipes to be a slab on a stick and output 1.

left: vanilla 3x3 grid recipe for oak signs; right: reshaped 2x2 grid recipe for an oak sign


Makes button recipes output 4 buttons.

left: vanilla recipe for 1 oak plank to 1 oak button; right: reshaped recipe for 1 oak plank to 4 oak buttons


Changes pressure plate, chiseled block, and trapdoor recipes so they don't conflict with newly reshaped recipes.

There's also fixed_inconsistencies which doesn't have any reshapers but changes some edge case vanilla recipes that break patterns (currently only changes the light weighted pressure plate recipe).

The builtin recipe reshapers can be enabled and disabled using the standard /datapack enable|disable commands, and you can add your own by putting them in your world's data packs folder.

Recipe reshapers work by defining source and result patterns, similar to the patterns used in vanilla shaped recipe JSON. Documentation on the data pack format is available on the wiki, and the builtin data packs serve as good examples.

This mod is only for Fabric (works on Quilt, too!) and I won't be porting it to Forge. The license is MIT, however, so anyone else is free to port it.

I'd appreciate links back to this page if you port or otherwise modify this project, but links aren't required.
