Keeping in mind I'm a minecraft noob. I tried one of the builds and it didn't work, so I looked up mod info. I read the following.
mod state: available
No mod information found. Ask your mod author to provide a mod mcmod.info file.
Is this why the build didn't work?
Edit- builds = crafting. BTW version 1.11.2
Edit 2 The mod works, unfortunately for some reason does not include the Peaceful table, and yes I do run in peaceful mode.
