So this mod allows you to draw runes on the ground physically and outside the crafting gui. Depending on what pattern you draw and what you give as a sacrifice, something magical will happen.



  • Install Minecraft Forge (with FML)
  • Drag dustmod.jar into %appdata%/.minecraft/mods/
  • Drag whatever addon rune pack jars you have into the same folder.

Server Notes:

  • To disable a rune, go into /[ServerFolder]/DustModConfig.cfg and change it to false
  • Some runes are disabled by default due to SMP incompatibility and cannot be re-enabled.

To Change the Block/Item IDs:

  • Go to /.minecraft/config/DustMod.cfg. All the IDs should be there for you to change.

The download has been split!

  • Core- The core of the mod. This is required both server and client no matter what.
  • Default runes- The basic runes that used to come pre-installed. Requires the Core. Only needed on server unless client wants them in SSP.
  • Decorative dusts- A addon for decorative dusts of all wool colors. Requires Core. Only needed on server unless client wants them in SSP.
