Ground Items can be right-clicked on an Infuser filled with Swamp Water to add them as Infusing ingredients. Combining ingredients in the Infuser process and collecting the resulting brew yields an Infusion Bucket with the total Aspects and amount values of the combination. These Infusion Buckets can then be distilled in the Alembic to produce Infusions or Aspect Vials, depending on whether the mixture was valid or not. Aspect Vials can be used as single-Aspect alternatives to Ground Items, as the Aspect they contain is isolated from other potentially unwanted Aspects and already known without the need to experiment with Geckos.


As the Betweenlands is run on Minecraft Forge, it is compatible with almost any other 1.12.2 forge mod. Notable incompatible mods or types of mods are shown below:

  • Shader mods: If you are using outside shader mods with the Betweenlands mod, you may experience visual glitches and issues, as the Betweenlands uses its own custom shaders which conflict with outside shaders. This includes Optifine.
  • Biomes o’ Plenty (or any other major biome mod, really): You may experience biome ID conflicts with the Betweenlands’s biomes. If this occurs, simply change the IDs in the mod’s config to unused IDs and you should be set.

The small friendly tree grown from saplings

While natural Spirit Trees cannot be grown, smaller, friendlier versions can be grown from Spirit Tree Saplings. These smaller trees consist purely of the log and leaf blocks and are inhabited by a single, friendly Small Spirit Tree Face. This Face has almost the same stats and behavior as the hostile ones, but will attack nearby hostile mobs instead of the player, albeit at a lesser range. The face can connect to Spirit Tree Logs added to its tree to extend its range, making an effective sentry. Friendly Small Spirit Tree Faces can also be fed by right-clicking them with Compost, healing them by 4 health () and occasionally causing them to drop 1-3 Sap Spit.

Friendly Small Spirit Tree Faces can be given Amulets, giving them a Middle Gem Circle modifier that directly affects the face’s own attacks and the player they are assigned to while they are alive. The number of amulets that they can equip at once can be extended with an Amulet Slot, and amulets can be taken off of them by shift right-clicking them. (NOTE: Amulet Slot extension for this mob is intended but not yet implemented.)

Spirit Trees grown from saplings do not appear with a map icon on an Amate Map.

Sludgeon Tower

To enter the underground part, the player needs to complete a puzzle to open the door that leads to the main part of the dungeon. First the player needs to light the 4 braziers at the top of the tower, activating the Beam Origin, which will continuously shoot an energy beam at the Beam Lens below it. Beam Lenses can be reoriented in any of the six different directions by right-clicking them. The order in which they are reoriented when clicked is as follows: Down -> Up -> North -> South -> West -> East. The beam must be redirected through several Beam Lenses and Passages until it reaches the Dungeon Door at the base of the tower, where the door will then open and allow access to the Labyrinthine Vaults of the Sludgeon.

Lighting the Braziers

To light the Braziers at the top of the Sludgeon Tower, the player needs to start a fire the same way as they would anywhere else:

  • Drop (Q) Moss, Cave Moss, Lichen, or Thorn items on top of the Brazier, then hold right click with an Octine Ingot.
  • Using a Pyrad Flame to light them.
  • Vanilla Fire Charges also work.

Four Emberling Shamans will also spawn — one on each brazier — when the Beam Origin activates.

Betweenlands Farms face multiple hazards, which can damage or completely destroy the farm if not properly managed.


The Heavy Rain weather event will gradually cover the ground in Puddles. If these Puddles generate over a crop-type plant, they will instantly destroy them. However, Puddles cannot generate over the other plant types, so they are unaffected. Puddles will only generate on top of opaque blocks exposed to the sky, but can also spread to empty neighbouring blocks on the same level as them. To prevent this, players can cover their farms, and surround them with a «wall» of blocks that Puddles cannot spread past.

Bushes on Decayed soil. (Pic Outdated)


Dug, Compost-filled soil will randomly decay over time, turning a sickly green, visually decaying crops planted in it, and halting any plant growth. This decay can also spread to other nearby unpurified Compost-filled blocks. If the plant is left on a decayed block for too long, it will eventually be destroyed, also destroying any basic plants in a 3×3 area around it.

Decay can be temporarily cured by right clicking the soil with a Plant Tonic, which will remove any decay in a small area. Plant Tonic can also be placed in a Censer to cure and prevent any decay in the area around it. Purified Swamp Dirt will also never decay, completely bypassing the mechanic.


Installation is relatively simple, generally the same as any other minecraft mod.

There are two ways to download The Betweenlands, through the Curse Forge site, or Github. Note that Betweenlands requires Minecraft Forge for 1.12.2 first, generally the most up to date 1.12.2 version.

The Official Betweenlands Discord Server also has a support section for questions, along with a list of Frequently Asked Questions pinned in said channel. Please check the FAQ first before asking a question to see if it’s already been answered.


You can download the mod from the Curse Forge site, found here, where official releases and updates are uploaded. Simply click Download for the latest build, and then drop the downloaded file into the .minecraft/mods folder like with other mods, and run Minecraft with Forge through the launcher. Although this is a simpler process and provides a more stable version, it is not always the most up-to-date as beta versions of updates are often released on Github first.


The mod is also available for download on Github, and development of the mod is committed there whenever it is worked on. If you want to play the absolute latest versions, you can follow these steps (for Windows). Note that this is a lengthier, more confusing process, the version may be more unstable.

This process requires the Java SDK, found here. After installing it, follow these steps to set it up properly:

  1. Go to the Github repository link, found here. You can do one of two things here. You can click Download ZIP near the top-right corner to download the .zip directly. Alternatively, if you have Github Desktop installed, you can press the clipboard-shaped button to the left of the download button, press the plus sign at the top left corner of the Desktop program, tab to Create, and paste the repository link you copied in the empty bar (you can also choose the file path you want it to install to from here). Through this second method you can simply press «Sync» on the program whenever the repository updates to get the latest code without having to redownload, but it is entirely optional.
  2. Navigate to the .zip you downloaded and extract it to somewhere on your computer using your choice of extractor program, such as WinRAR, 7zip or just Windows 10’s built in .zip extraction (this step is only necessary if you have downloaded it directly from the Github website).
  3. After unzipping/syncing the BL download, you’ll get a folder named The-Betweenlands or The-Betweenlands-master. Shift-right click on the folder. There should be an option to open command prompt there, just click on that and then you have your file location. Then type ‘gradlew build’ after the line in your command prompt, press enter, and the build will begin compiling. After a certain amount of time it will be done and you can close the command prompt.The universal .jar should end up in build>libs.
  4. Navigate to your .minecraft directory. This can be found by typing «%AppData%» (without quotes) into the start menu. From there, click Roaming, and then .minecraft.
  5. If you don’t already have a mods folder under .minecraft, click new folder and name it «mods» (again, without quotes). Drop the .zip file you found into the mods folder.
  6. Start the Minecraft launcher. Click the arrow to the right of the Profile bar and select the version of Forge you downloaded. Then launch the game.
  7. Success!

Removed Blocks

Removed Blocks
Removed Block Description Picture
Swamp Farmland When the mod was first conceived, Swamp Farmland was planned to be a block that could be tilled with a hoe from Swamp Dirt and used as soil for Betweenlands crops, similar to the vanilla mechanic. It was overridden by the Compost mechanic and thus was never added in the reboot. N/A
Dried Peat Dried Peat was a block that was intended to be smelted from Peat in the original development of the mod. It was meant to be an efficient fuel source. It was never added in the reboot. N/A
Mire Coral Dust (placed) During the original development of the mod, Mire Coral Dust was planned to have a placed form, similar to Redstone Dust, that would form the border of a Repeller. In the reboot, Ground Mire Coral exists and uses the item texture of Mire Coral Dust, but it cannot be placed, as Repellers create their own border instead. N/A
Water Flower Water Flowers were a feature since the original development of the mod, and generated in Deep Waters biomes. They were flowers that stuck out above the water and were connected to the seafloor by stalks. They were in the first reboot release of the mod, but were replaced by Bladderworts in the Beta 1.0.1 update.
Bark Weedwood Bark and Portal Tree Bark were originally separate blocks that generated on the outside of Weedwood and Portal Trees, repsectively. In the Beta 2.0.0 update, they were merged with Weedwood Log and Portal Frame blocks, which generate with bark on all sides in place of the individual bark blocks.
Dark Druid Spawner The Dark Druid Spawner was a block that generated below the Dark Druid Altar of a Druid Circle and spawned Dark Druids. It was removed in the Beta 2.0.0 update, and its function was replaced by a regular Betweenlands Monster Spawner.
Chock-A-Block The Chock-A-Block was a stunningly special animated block, depicting a super smart chimp walking a bulldog around on a leash. It was a reference to the resident chimp/coder of the mod, Vadis365. It was removed in the Beta 2.0.0 update…still can’t believe this was actually ingame…
Lantern The original concept for a Lantern was a light source that had to be refueled with Weedwood Buckets of Oil. It was implemented during the original development of the mod, and a different iteration was developed during the reboot, but was removed before release. New iterations of Lanterns have since made their way to official releases in the Release 3.7.2 update. N/A

  • Swamp Grass
  • Swamp Dirt, directly under the surface
  • Cattail

The Spirit Tree uses a large number of attacks that can be overwhelming at first. Ranged combat is the safest for dodging projectiles and roots, but Axes also deal considerable melee damage if the player can get close, especially an Octine Axe due to its additional fire damage. Having a Shield is also useful to block the tree’s constant projectiles.

Covering the roots surrounding the tree with blocks can also be a viable way to avoid the Small Faces’ attacks while attacking the Large Face. As the Large Face will not despawn nor regenerate health, players who find themselves unequipped for the fight can always flee and return later.
