If only there was a way to make crafting in Minecraft slightly more difficult, but at the same time, slightly more rewarding as well.
Thanks to the tinkers construct mod, this is now possible. The tinkers construct mod is a mod database it’s so crafting is slightly more difficult, but at the same time you can craft new and better tools as opposed to the vanilla crafting counterparts. This results in a greater variety of tools, as well as a greater reward for those who decide to master this way of crafting.

This mod at several varieties to the types of pickaxes, axes, and swords that you can make. This means that you can look very unique based off the tools you have on you.
