The Extra Utilities mod adds a bunch of new blocks to the game to aid in your building experience. It gives you some neat functional blocks and even a new dimension called the deep dark, which seems to be a massive cave full of cobblestone and mobs and a large underground castle.
The Angel Block is a fantastic tool for starting off a build up in the air. If you’ve ever wanted to build high or maybe a bridge across a body of water, typically you’d need to build a land bridge and/or tower from the ground first and then destroy those blocks later. With the Angel Block you can place it anywhere you want in open space by simply right clicking. So now you can start building anywhere!
You can set up a conveyer system for transportation of dropped items. You can even use it for travel as well. Just step on it and it will pull you in whatever direction it’s set to. It works without power so there’s no need to add a redstone system for it to function.
Compressed blocks are expanded with this mod as well. You can compress cobblestone up to eight times giving you more than 43,000,000 pieces in one block. Dirt can compress up to four times and gravel and sand twice.
And there’s a few new decorative blocks with brick and glass. Plus gravel has some new functional blocks in brick form. Now you can place gravel like any other block without it falling if the block below is removed.
This mod is really handy with compact utilities that make the game that much more functional. Even the simplest of functions is now a single block like the trash can making the disposal of items super simple and stylish.
