The Soul Forest mod is an ambitious project that is currently about 90% complete for Minecraft 1.6.4/1.7.2/1.7.4/1.7.5. This mod adds a new dimension to the game along with dozens of new ores, vines, mobs, and other exciting features.
Specifically, the Soul Forest Mod creates a dimension called the Soul Forest. This Soul Forest dimension is home to a number of the new ores added through this mod, including:
Before you start to think that those are made up words, all of those materials certainly do exist in the real world. So the Soul Forest Mod is introducing at least a few real ores to Minecraft. Other types of ores spawn in the overworld, but most generate in the Soul Forest.
There are a number of cool-looking biomes in the Soul Forest dimension, all of which feature different trees, vines, and organic appearances. There are Baneberry, Blueberry, Blackberry, Cranberry, Razzberry, Raspberry, and Strawberry vines, for example.
The Soul Forest dimension itself is particularly cool. Unlike other dimensions, the Soul Forest is entirely underground. Sometimes, you won’t even notice that because the ceiling is so high up. It’s a gigantic underground world shrouded with a dark-green fog color and featuring large pools of water at the lower elevations and large patches of grass at higher elevations. Simply walking around the Soul Forest is the highlight of installing this mod.
To get to the Soul Forest, you need to create a portal (shaped exactly like a nether portal) and light that portal using a Soul Lighter. Other features included in this mod are:
-12 new tool sets (2 of which are tiers above diamond)
-7 new armor sets
-One new weapon called The Frost Wand which shoots frost shards
-A custom fire called Soul Fire and a custom liquid called Soul Liquid
-A custom bucket called the Soul Bucket
-New mobs like the Snow Creeper (called Exclos), the Yeti, Kotek, and Ice Fairy. The Exclos mob is very similar to the vanilla creeper, while the Kotek is a large slime-like mob shaped like a colored block.
This mod is compatible with a lot of popular mods, including Too Many Items, Not Enough Items, Crystal Wing, Carpenters Blocks, Mystcraft, and more. For a full list of compatible mods, check out the Soul Forest Planet Minecraft page here.
