Flat bedrock generation

The bedrock in the overworld will be flat when this functionality is turned on. This way you can dig really far down and don't have to jump around too much to get around.

Example (Glowstone added for light):

Home command

By typing /home into chat you will be transported to the last bed you slept in when you are in the overworld.

If you are not in the overworld (such as the Nether or the End or some other Mod Dimension, you will be transported to where you entered the dimension.


Step Assist

For when you have that extra spring in your step. 

This is NOT the auto-jump feature in Minecraft. This enchantment (which has 3 different levels) allows you to move up a block automatically like a horse does. 

Level 1: Move up blocks up to 1 block high.

Level 2: Move up blocks up to 1.5 blocks high (fences/walls).

Level 3: Move up blocks up to 2. blocks high.


You can use this in any mod pack, you don't need permission.


In The Works:

This mod is being re-named to "Repurpose" since that what it does to a lot of Vanilla items/blocks.

Images and descriptions of added features, blocks and items will be added shortly. This re-name will ONLY affect Minecraft version 1.12+ of this mod. Older Minecraft versions will keep the old name of WuestUtilities. Note: There will be no upgrade path from WuestUtilities to Repurpose.
