Vanilla Immersion Mod 1.12.2/1.10.2 is a mod that tries to bring an immersive experience to Vanilla Minecraft, just like the name suggests! This is achieved by removing any “pop-up” GUI from most blocks. Instead, you are able to directly interact with them from within the world, with your actual hands.

Vanilla Immersion Mod

This mod mod basically replaces a bunch of vanilla blocks with more immersive versions of themselves in order to make the experience more engaging for the players. Normally, whenever you do something in Minecraft, you generally have to utilize a user-interface in order to do it but, thanks to this mod, you’ll actually be able to interact with items much like you would in the real world. For example, the mod implements a special crafting table that actually allows players to interact with the various different items that they’re using to craft something and doing so is a delightful experience that makes Minecraft a significantly more enjoyable game.

Other than the crafting table, the Vanilla Immersion mod also changes the Furnace, Anvil, Hammer and even the Enchantment table. Any time you use these entities, you’ll be able to physically see all the changes happen instead of a boring user-interface that doesn’t show much other than the core components of the process. The mod is top notch on a technical level as well so it’s unlikely that you’ll have trouble while using it. Overall, Vanilla Immersion is an expertly designed and very well thought out mod that makes Minecraft a truly immersive game.


Crafting Table

Ever wondered what that grid on a crafting table is for? Exactly, you’re supposed to craft on it! But unfortunately, right clicking with any item on the correct slot of the grid will just open a window, how annoying.

The Immersive Crafting Table has the following features:

  • Directly place items on the in-world crafting grid by right-clicking the appropriate slot.
  • Left-clicking a slot (including the result) will remove the item it currently holds to your inventory.
  • Sneaking while doing any click will perform the normal action, only with all items from a stack rather than only one of them.
  • Full support for dragging, just like the Vanilla GUI.
  • Integration with JEI.
    • Automatic transfer of recipes available through clicking the question mark icon in the lower right-hand side corner.
  • Limited support for automation through hoppers or other mods.
    • On the north, south, west and east side of the crafting table items may be inserted into the adjacent (“middle”) slots.
    • Items may be inserted into the centre slot from the top face.

Vanilla Immersion Mod Features 1


Just like the crafting table, the furnace can now be interacted with directly in the world. In addition to that, you can actually see inside the furnace now, if you ever wondered what’s going in there when you smelt up those precious metals.

The Immersive Furnace has the following features:

  • Directly insert items into the respective slot (upper half for input, lower half for fuel).
  • Visual indication of remaining fuel (coal will turn lighter, i.e. into ash).
  • Parity with Vanilla automation-wise.
    • Inserting items works just the same.
    • “Extracting” items will have to be done through a hopper in front of the furnace since it will drop all smelting results into the world.

Vanilla Immersion Mod Features 2


In Vanilla, the anvil isn’t very impressive, just a collection of 4 grey cubes. With this mod, however, you can not only directly do your repairs in-world, you also get to use a hammer.

The Immersive Anvil has the following features:

  • Place inputs on the marked slot of the anvil.
    • The object to be repaired/modified will go into the “pickaxe” slot.
    • The modifier goes into the “ingot” slot.
  • Place a hammer on the right-hand side of the anvil by using the marked slot.
  • Items can be named by right clicking the front face of the anvil and by typing text, it will directly be displayed.
  • The result of the operation can not be known before you work the inputs with a hammer.
    • If you do not have enough experience or the operation does not work, you will hear the “item breaking” sound.
    • If the operation does work, your experience will be decreased by one level with every hit.
    • The required amount of hits equals the required experience.
    • Note that you may leave the anvil while performing an operation or even work on it together with friends if you do not have enough experience yourself.

Vanilla Immersion Mod Features 3


The hammer is a tool required to work materials on the anvil. It doe take damage from usage and has equivalent durability to other iron tools. To obtain a hammer, you simply have to use this crafting recipe:

Enchantment Table

The Vanilla enchantment table has a fancy book floating above it, but it doesn’t do much expect floating and flipping its pages. How about actually seeing information about the available enchantments on there?

The Immersive Enchantment Table has the following features:

  • Insert the item to enchant and potential modifiers (i.e. lapis lazuli) into the table by right clicking it with them.
  • Enchantments can be selected from each page, flipping the page is simply done by clicking the “button” or the left/right margin of the page.
  • Information about required experience, lapis lazuli and a guaranteed enchantment can be found among the cryptic text on each page.
  • Walking too far away from the table will close the book (just like Vanilla) and remove all items inserted.
  • Upon clicking “Enchant”, a process of about 6 seconds is started to perform the actual enchanting.

Vanilla Immersion Mod Features 5

Brewing Stand

In Vanilla, the Brewing Stand displays every potion you insert the same way. This mod changes the look and feel completely.

The Immersive Brewing Stand has the following features:

  • Insert/Extract potions/bottles into/from the stand by right clicking the corresponding “tubes” (your selection will be visible).
  • Insert/Extract the ingredient by right clicking the little “bowl” on top of the stand. Alternatively, drop the item on top of the bowl.
  • Insert/Extract the fuel (i.e. blaze powder) by right clicking the “bowl” while it contains an ingredient.
  • All automation capabilities from Vanilla are retained.

Vanilla Immersion Mod Features 6


Vanilla Beacons have a few caveats. With this mod, you can tell from the outside of the beacon which effects are currently active and you can even disable the effects without having to destroy the block.

The Immersive Beacon has the following features:

  • Right click any side of the beacon to enter “edit mode”.
  • In edit mode, scroll while hovering over any of the faces displaying an icon to change the active effect.
    • To select no effect or disable the beacon, simply select the barrier icon.
    • To confirm your choice, right click again.
    • To go back one step, right click the block while sneaking.
  • Once you’ve confirmed all desired effects, the beacon will await its payment, signified by the pulsing of the centre crystal. Simply right click it while holding items valid for payment in your hand.
  • The active beacon displays its active effects on all sides.
