Getting Started

Tinkers' Construct is a mod about putting tools together in a wide variety of ways, then modifying them until they turn into something else. The tools never disappear and can be named and changed to your heart's desire. Once you make them, they're yours forever. Many different materials can be used to make your tools.

This mod includes many related features, including:

  • Part builders, tinker stations, and modifier workstations for building and modifying your tools
  • The melter, alloyer, smeltery, and foundry for working with molten metals
  • Slime islands generating as part of the overworld, nether, and end, granting access to 5 different slime colors
  • Slimy geodes spawning deep underground
  • Cobalt ore in the nether

To get started, craft Materials and You then follow the introduction steps. We will work on getting a better description here on Modrinth in the future - did not want to copy an outdated description from CurseForge.
