Preston Mod 1.12.2 is a compressed block mod, it provides means of compressing sets of 9 identical blocks into 1 “compressed block” recursively, as well as decompressing them back.

Preston Mod


  • This mod allows you to compress any full-cuboid block (any block) in the game, not just a selection of them.
  • This mod lets you set the amount of compression levels available. By default, there are sixteen (single, double, triple, …, sexdecuple), but you can set them all the way from just one (single) to one thousand (…, undemilluple, milluple)!
  • This mod allows you to balance block compression by providing an RF/FE-powered machine, the Compressor, to faciliate this. The amount of RF/FE necessary scales with the compression level. (Optionally, you can configure it to allow crafting-based compression.)

You can use the config file to make compression happen in the crafting grid, which you may be a bit more used to.

The amount of compression levels can be configured: By default, it is 16, but you can set it all the way up to 1000 if you really wanted to.
