Modular Tools mod introduces a self-balancing mechanic, allowing you to customize your tools using a compromise between upgrades and downgrades. Each upgrade and downgrade has a number of points associated with it, and you must “balance the equation” for the tool to work. Shift+Right-Click the tool to access the GUI. There is a number in the center of the GUI that will tell you if the points are too high or too low.

Current Tools:

  • Modular Pickaxe
  • Modular Sword
  • Modular Ring (movement capabilites)

Current Modifiers:


  • Speed: Increases mining speed in the pickaxe, and movement speed in the ring
  • Size: Increases mining area in the pickaxe, and attack area in the sword. 3×3 or 5×5
  • Harvest: Increases mining harvest level
  • Light: If there are torches next to your pickaxe, it will place them on right-click. If not, it will place temporary lights that will disappear after about 10 seconds.
  • Depth: Increases depth of mined blocks
  • Trash: Will void any drops that appear in the “Trash Filters” slots
  • Stone: When mining smooth stone, smooth stone will drop instead of cobblestone
  • Vein: Will mine entire veins of ore. Only works on blocks with an unlocalized name starting with “ore”
  • Drops: Increases drop rate from mining in the pickaxe, and from mobs in the sword (like Fortune/Looting)
  • Attack: Increases the attack strength of the sword
  • Behead: Increases the chance for Vanilla mobs to drop their heads by 20% each
  • Flight: Adds time-limited flight and a cooldown. Timer resets every time you touch the ground
  • Permanent Flight: Adds permanent flight without a timer/cooldown
  • Step: Gives step-assist
  • Hotbar: Allows the ring to work anywhere on your hotbar instead of in your hand


  • Harvest: Reduces mining harvest level
  • Speed: Reduces mining speed in the pickaxe, and movement speed with the ring
  • Hunger: Makes mining, attacking with sword, or moving with the ring cost additional hunger
  • Expensive: No negative effects, just an expensive recipe
  • Very Expensive: No negative effects, just a very expensive recipe
  • Damage: Using the tool costs extra durability
  • Slowness: Induces the Slowness effect on use
