    Better Netherite is a plugin that brings many changes and additions to 1.16s Netherite, and the Nether itself! Custom smithing table system, Crafting recipes for netherite items, and much more!

    How to Install:
    Step 1:
    Download it.
    Step 2: Put it in the Plugins folder. (If you are updating the plugin, be sure to remove the older version.)
    Step 3: Restart server (required - reload will not work)
    Step 4: Done!

    • Replace the Smithing Table upgrade system for Netherite items with a proper crafting system.
    • To make up for the rarity of Ancient Debris, mining it now has a chance of dropping extra scrap. Customizable in the config.
    • To make up for the rarity of Ancient Debris, smelting it now yields more scrap. Customizable in the config, along with the smelt times, and the amount of EXP given from smelting.
    • Or, you can disable the crafting and enable a better upgrade system, this improved upgrade system takes more of the needed material to upgrade, it also adds the ability to upgrade, for instance, Wood > Stone, and so on. Note: It does not take the exact amount it'd take the craft the item, just a few to upgrade it. Customizable in the config.
    • A Shrine system that gives more of a use to Netherite Blocks, Shrines have special effects on them. More info here.
    • Custom mobs and items utilizing my other plugin, Monstrorvm. This plugin is required for these custom aspects to work.

    Note: commands do utilize tab completion, but only those that need it.
    /betternetheritereload - Reload the config (Alias: bnreload)

    Mining ancient debris with the 'ScrapDrop' option enabled and a 70% chance set (has a chance to drop extra scrap along with the ancient debris itself)

    Smelting ancient debris with the 'BetterSmelting' option enabled, and the yield amount set to 4

    Crafting a netherite item in the way you'd craft any other item with the 'ImprovedUpgrading' option turned off and 'EnableNetheriteCrafting' turned on.

      Coming soon! I apologize for the wait! Glad you like it, though!
      I'm working on updating my other plugin to it first since it's much bigger in size compared to Better Netherite.
      Keep watch, soon there will be an update, hopefully!

    Great plugin, gives a large amount of adjustment to the Netherite system. The dev is super prompt on updates, and pushed out a patch for the BN + Monstrorvm custom mobs.

    Plugin looks like a great way to keek the "vanilla experience" intact with settings, but also adds a ton of possible customization you can use, everything from small value tweaking to refoging, this mod is epic!

    Epic plugin for balancing netherite, adds more options for end game and make the grinding less grinding, also make the nether more difficult with new mobs for the hardcore players.
