Wood in Minecraft can be quite a hassle, especially with the new update, where all of the tress drop different types of wood. Sure, this can be quite useful for creative projects that require a certain shade of grey, but if you’re playing the survival portion of Minecraft, this can be quite a hassle because of the fact that the wood has different colors. It may not phase hardcore survival enthusiasts, but if you’re like me, a person who likes to have a good looking house, even in survival, this might bother you to no end.
Fortunately, there is a mod that fixes this, and it’s called theWood Converter Mod. TheWood Converter Mod is a mod that makes it so you can convert wood to different colors you need, as long as you have at least 9 pieces of that type of wood. As stated before, this may not be as big of a deal for people who play purely to survive, but this can mean the world to some people who would like to have a nice looking house.
This mod, though primarily a creative-survival mod, can be pretty useful survival-wise as well. Well, not the way you would think, however. This mod basically makes it so you can get the more rare types of wood, such as jungle wood, and even spruce wood, all without having to leave the biome you’re currently in.
All in all, theWood Converter Mod is a pretty solid mod, even though it is sort of minimal when it comes to features. In my opinion, the mod author should have made it so the mod works off of 3 pieces of wood as opposed to 9, mainly because 3 fits into more odd numbers, such as 21 pieces of wood and whatnot, but in the end, the 9 pieces of wood requirement is still viable, and is pretty solid in the end.
Here's a video of the Wood Converter Mod in action.
