Operation Diamond Enhanced Survival

Focusing on fun for Everyone!


The Operation Diamond Enhanced Survival mod pack is a collection of mods that have been configured to enhance on the player's survival experience while maintaining the spirit of vanilla survival Minecraft in a multi-player community environment.  This is the mod pack that is required to play on the Operation Diamond Enhanced Survival server, but is here to be shared and enjoyed by everyone. The main areas for enhancement focus on providing players with:


  • new biome and structure types to explore with an added degree of difficulty
  • the ability to be safe from other players in bases, but allow PvP in wilderness areas 
  • an expanded building experience by including new block types and tools
  • altered game mechanics to allow for better base and farm automation
  • a balanced way to obtain items that are not renewable and hard to obtain in large communities

Some of the altered game mechanics worth mentioning are:

  • Penguins waddle in cold biomes (my favorite animal and had to be added)
  • Dispensers can plant crops and place blocks
  • Endermen are more aggressive in pursuing players
  • Hostile mobs are more dangerous the closer the player is to bedrock
  • Trees simply fall in the Overworld anytime Chuck Norris is near
  • The dragon will always drop a dragon egg and a dragon scale upon dying after re-spawning
  • Elytra can be crafted from dragon scales
  • Shulkers are now (not so easily) farmable
  • A simple quarry machine has been added for the purpose of large perimeter clearing
  • Filtered hoppers have been added and hooper conduits can push items up
  • A conveyor systems can transport mobs, items, and entities like water streams
  • Craft-able air ships are available  as a second means of flying
  • Herobrine creates random structures in the world when nobody is looking
  • Waypoint markers can be teleported to only after their discovery by the player

Keeping true to the original vanilla experience, this pack is intended to be used by adventurers, traditional redstoners, and players that enjoy the challenge of building in survival mode.  Mods that added non-traditional Minecraft weapons, armor, or the ability to fly unassisted  by the player were specifically avoided.  RF power, Magic, and item / fluid conduit mods were also avoided as they can easily be too overpowered for balanced gameplay for a more generalized community.


This mod pack is currently in its early development phase with the primary efforts being centered functional aspects.  Please feel free to make suggestions to any additions or configuration changes that could be made to further enhance this mod pack, but do not detract from the core mission.


Planned future enhancements include:

Customizable player appearances

Addition of DecoCraft

Enhanced social features

Fun things like chance cubes

Silly, non-game changing mods to make you laugh
