CraftBook adds a number of new mechanics to Minecraft with no client mods required.

CraftBook is a heavily customizable plugin that adds a number of new mechanics to Minecraft with no client mods required. As one of Minecraft’s oldest mods/plugins, we were the first to bring you Minecraft computers, Redstone ICs, moving bridges, and more! Here’s a short list:

Implementation Progress from CraftBook 3

  • Modular, and extremely light on your server.
  • Enable features that you need, disable ones that you don’t. Even tweak features to your liking.
  • Adds heaps of mechanics that allow you to mimic large portions of FTB/Tekkit with a vanilla client.
  • Redstone ICs (Logic gates, Sensors, Many others!)
  • Elevators for your server so people can jump between floors quickly. (Or smoothly, if you choose so)
  • Working cauldrons so players can cook inside them. (Not Ported)
  • Your own custom crafting recipes. (Not Ported)
  • Hidden switches for players.
  • Togglable areas and bridges.
  • Chairs you can sit on.
  • Working pipes that can transfer items from place to place.
  • Footprints where your players walk.
  • Mobs and players drop their heads.
  • The ability to bind commands to items, with cool-downs, permissions and timers. (Not Ported)
  • And much more… (Seriously, check the wiki)

Getting Started


  1. Download the CraftBook jar, or zip (but remember to extract it!) and copy the file into mods/.
  2. Run your server once to generate the files.
  3. Edit configs/CraftBook/config.conf to your liking, and enable anything you want to use. Note: For optimal performance, only enable what you need.
  4. Restart the server for the settings to take effect.

For older versions:

You’ll have to read the wiki (see below) to find the permissions you need.
